Living Letters enables people
to experience scripture
as it was Originally intended.
What do we lose when we read Scripture through 21st-century eyes?
What do we miss?
What do we fail to understand?
Nearly two thousand years separate us from the cultural and historical contexts of the biblical text. What we've lost is the ability to experience Scripture in the powerful way its first readers and hearers experienced it—as a living word spoken directly to particular communities with particular struggles, questions, fears, and hopes.
With Living Letters, Broadway actors Juliette and Stephen Trafton present dynamic, interactive performances that enable churches to enter imaginatively into the drama of Scripture, providing a powerful new way to understand, experience, and live out the Word of God.
