Bible in 4 minutes

a spoken word animation through the Bible story

A beautiful Bible overview animation

In this little film, Dai invites you to encounter the Bible narrative in just 4 minutes, with a three-part harmony of storytelling – breathtaking animation, compelling sound design and a crafted piece of spoken word poetry.
‘How can you do the greatest story in history justice in just four minutes? You can’t! But may my take on it, inspire you to re-connect with the original and the author behind it.’ (Dai, author and narrator)

A special mention to Andy Toovey for creating this incredible animation to bring Dai’s words to life.
