Came across this the other day via 8Bit’s Twitter stream. Great project and even better approach to audio bibles than what I’ve seen personally in some time.
From their website:
Streetlights is an urban audio Bible that seeks to combine the breathing words of God with authentic and quality music production influenced by the cultures of the inner city. It is a tool that can be used to hear, memorize and assist youth and young adults in studying the Scriptures. Eclectic Hip-hop beats will be composed as an urban score to the Bible. Chapter by chapter, multiple voices with many different accents will be heard reading Scripture as the beats create a canvas for the text. Imagine God’s Word shining its light through mp3 players, social networking sites and speakers throughout the cities worldwide.
Learn more, download the sampler, see other videos, and definitely support this project that aims to not just share the Scriptures in an accessible manner, but addresses the hearing of the Word to those who aren’t able to read it (for whatever reasons).
