What listeners are saying
“Every verse comes ALIVE in a way that made me feel the weight, drama, and beauty of the Scriptures.”
“It helps the head and heart to connect with each other. Hearing the words of Scripture through Living Water was amazing and powerful. As I follow along with the written Word in front of me, it truly touches all of me — my mind, heart and spirit.”
“It was unlike anything I’ve ever heard or experienced… I was blown away. I can’t wait to hear more Scripture shared in this manner.”
An Unprecedented Musical Undertaking
Lutheran Bible Translators and award-winning artists have partnered together in the Living Water project.
The audio recording of the New Testament will be released one chapter per day starting January 2022. Listeners will be refreshed as they hear the Gospels, Acts, Epistles, and Revelation to music.
The Psalms, originally performed with instruments and singing, served as inspiration for the project.
Using the English Standard Version (ESV), every verse of the New Testament is sung by vocalists to express the emotion and depth in the Bible. Lutheran Bible Translators and the artists want the truth of the Gospel heard in each performance.
Martin Luther once wrote, “I wish that every village had its own interpreter and that this book alone would live in the hands, eyes, ears, and hearts of all people.”
As people are refreshed by Living Water, we pray they will want to share that gift with others! And God’s Word can be shared with people around the world in the language they understand best.
It is life-changing when people share the LIGHT of God’s Word to those still feeling lost, confused, and frustrated. With God’s Word in their hands, they have hope and confidence engaging with Scripture.
We pray that Living Water will spur on the Bible translation movement as more people experience Scripture. Let Living Water captivate you with the beauty of God’s Word. Subscribe to receive refreshment each day.
