Audio Adventures Explained

Audio theatre—just like reading, but in a more fun, entertaining and engaging way—allows children to tap into, exercise and build their imagination by letting them create their own self-generated visual images and mental movies.

The Power Of Stories

1. The audio book.

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.

2. The audio drama

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!

3. Active Listening Audio Adventure

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.

Our Story

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.
