An audio book is a recording of a text simply being read. A reading of the complete text is noted as "unabridged," while readings of a reduced version are labeled as "abridged." Spoken word books have been around since the 1930s and became popular in the eighties. The term "talking book" was coined during the 1930s when "book for the blind" programs gained in popularity.
Audio drama (sometimes called radio or audio theater) is a dramatized, purely acoustic performance, broadcast on the radio or published on CDs or MP3s. With no visual component whatsoever, radio drama depends on dialogue, music and sound effects to help the listener imagine the characters and story. Listening Breakthrough!
The newest genre in audio listening is Active Listening Audio Adventures. Active Listening Audio Adventures are audio dramas with fast-moving stories designed to keep the listener captivated by the story. Quickly paced and Plot-rich use of powerful sound effects makes this new listening format truly unique. Parents love it because it truly "captures" the imagination of children. Some describe it as 3-D sound effects.
Igniting The Next Generation’s Love For Christian History
At Heirloom Audio Productions, we are passionate about bringing Christian history to life. We are truly thankful for all God has done for us and refuse to take our precious history for granted.
The Bible also admonishes us to constantly “remember” and to teach our children to do the same. That’s why it’s so important to know where we’ve come from and who we are as Christians. If we forget our history and allow ourselves to become culturally conditioned by the world, we will lose our greatest possession.
So while we do everything we can to make our stories fun and exciting… there’s a lot at stake here… nothing less than the heart and soul of civilization itself.
It also means we feel God requires us to go the extra mile, taking our Audio Adventures to a new level of excellence. Our mission, simply stated, is to engage our listeners’ imagination by taking them back in time and immersing them in a great Christian story.
We sincerely hope that you will join us in this mission by helping us spread the word about our efforts and in so doing, ignite a passion for history and Christian character in the next generation.
When 16-year-old Harry visits France, his journey plummets him into one of history’s darkest times—the French Revolution. Chaos challenges Harry’s faith as he struggles not only to survive, but to rescue the family who lovingly took him in as their own and who now face the guillotine for no other “crime” than their noble lineage. This Audio Adventure will leave you breathless as you follow one boy’s journey from the crushing darkness of human pride to the hope and courage of God’s loving light.
