A New Audio Bible for the ‘Streets’
Biblica has partnered with Streetlights, a multimedia Bible production team with a heart to get the Word to an often overlooked Unreached People Group- in a way the ‘streets’ understand.
Self-described as “digital scribes,” Streetlights desires to translate the Bible in hip hop and digital formats to reach a youth generation around the world whose “language” is hip hop with strong influences from that global culture.
Biblica is partnering with Streetlights to produce the Streetlights Multimedia New Testament in Spanish (NVI). This will not only meet an immediate need in North America and Spanish- speaking countries, it may also serve as the template for future gateway-language versions.
By investing in this initiative, you are making it possible for millions of Spanish-speaking urban youth who are influenced and motivated by hip-hop culture to become disciples of Christ through the transforming power of His Word.
Can we count on your support to help us achieve this exciting goal?
What is the Streetlights Audio Bible?
The Streetlights audio Bible is a hip hop, word for word, multimedia Bible product consisting of the entire New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs in audio format.
Streetlights has also produced a series of promotional videos for the project. Watch the videos below to get a feel for the passion that goes into these recordings.
Your Donation Helps Us Produce New Audio
Today’s youth are immersed in a digital world – it’s all they have ever known. Add to that the meteoric rise of hip-hop music, which consistently comprises the majority of U.S. and global “charts,” and it’s easy to understand how this kind of music has become a major influencer of culture, fashion, and morals in our world.
By June 2020 we will produce all 260 New Testament chapters, complete with vocal, word- for-word recordings set to a dynamic hip-hop score; Spanish-specific covers and curriculum; compelling videos; and initial marketing.
Upon completion, the product will have an immediate distribution pipeline through Biblica’s extensive network of global ministry partners.
There are several ways you can help:
$27 to support this important work in the New Testament
$96 to fund two verses in the Gospels
$192 to fund four verses of the Gospels
