The Bible Experience LIVE

Over a year ago Ron Belk approached me about a project to put the Bible, read by famous African Americans, on audio CDs. He needed to help to get the project off the ground and I agreed to help him. We recently completed the New Testament, which is available now at and the Old Testament will be finished around Easter '07.

The New Testament is 19 CDs and one DVD. Blair Underwood reads as the voice of Jesus. Denzel Washington reads the Song of Solomon. Samuel Jackson is the voice of God. Cuba Gooding Jr. is Judas and T.D. Jakes is the Holy Spirit. Deniece Williams and Cindy Herron-Braggs as well as a few others from our own congregation are involved, too.

As you can tell by the above artwork, we are having a LIVE reading with musical performances this Wednesday, November 15, 2006 at Bishop Blake's church from 7 to 9 pm. I am planning on attending and want to invite you for this LIVE experience. As I've thought about this project, it's NOT the fame of the individual people that make this a STAR ATTRACTION. The Bible itself is the WORD OF GOD..... enough said. This Book, no matter who the reader, no matter who the listener, will change the HEART of anyone who'll simply apply the truths found in its pages. The question is: Will you read it? Will you listen to it? Will you apply it? No life is ever the same after coming face to face with the truth of God's Word.

Will you join me this Wednesday for a LIVE experience of a lifetime at the West Angeles Church of God in Christ?

I think I will have to join you. I was here for the run-through here at the church and it looked amazing even with all the takes. Just a thought, you might want to link to the trailer, like the graphic has:

Enjoy your day!

I just got my copy of this CD set - and 1 for my mom, and 1 for my dad, and 1 for my sister. I'm excited to have real CHISTmas presents for them already taken care of! The voices on these CDs are AMAZING! I am so grateful to all those who put so much work into it! The DVD of the making is INCREDIBLE as well. It is so wonderfully reassuring to see "stars" still doing great things out there!!!
