Christ's Object Lessons by Ellen G. White (1827 - 1915).

An approachable explanation of the main parables used by Jesus Christ to teach His disciples how to live. Included in this collection are explanations of The Parable of the Sower, The Pearl of Great Price and others, followed by a general discussion of Christ's teachings on Prayer and the Love of God.

Brief Summary, will be amended prior to catalogue (Beth Thomas)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://archive.org/details/christsobjectles00whit
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard


      Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi sherbrad! Thanks for suggesting this project! I'll definitely hold those chapters for you, but I need you to do a 1 min test as described in the Wiki or your welcome email. Once that is OK, come back here and record!

Sherbrad,

When Beth said "Welcome email" she is referring to an email that Librivox sent to you after you registered. The Libirovx Wiki contains a similar information on the 1 minute test. We use this test to ensure that your recordings meet Librivox technical specifications like volume, background noise, sample rate).

That's great, but did you also post the link to the Editors and Listeners forum? I don't have the technical skills to check it myself. I do books but not technology I'm afraid!
