The Bible in Four Minutes

The Bible in Four Minutes is a spoken word animation, written and narrated by poet and storyteller Dai Woolridge.

In just four minutes, you'll be taken through the Bible narrative with a piece of storytelling in three-part harmony – breathtaking animation, compelling sound design and a crafted piece of spoken word poetry. Phil Knox, poet and author of Story Bearer: How to share your faith with friends, says: ‘This is beautifully crafted, soulfully relevant and profoundly powerful.’
