Help Crossway Meet Their Urgent Ministry Opportunity!

May 22, 2012

I, like many of you, are indebted to the great work Crossway has done to provide an excellent translation of the Bible as well as numerous wonderful books covering our library shelves. Recently, they have been given an all-or-nothing matching grant should they be able to raise $270,000 by the end of this month. As you can see below, they are hoping to use this money to provide Bibles in some of the most populous and needy places in the world.  Please consider donating today!

AS YOU MAY KNOW, Crossway is a not-for-profit ministry that relies in part on gifts from people like you to accomplish major ministry projects worldwide.

We’ve recently been presented with an extraordinary opportunity. Generous donors have offered an all-or-nothing matching grant IF we are able to raise $270,000 by May 31st—just days from now.

This grant could not have come at a better time. In God’s kindness, we currently have unprecedented opportunities forcreating, translating, and delivering ESV Bible resources for Christians in great need—especially in China, India, and multiple countries in Africa.

Will you help us toward meeting this matching grant before the end of May? Your gift of any amount will help Crossway provide significantly more Bibles and Bible study resources to the church worldwide.

WE WOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR GENEROUS RESPONSE TO THIS URGENT OPPORTUNITY.

Illumining the Four Gospels

November 17, 2010

I find this simply fascinating.  And I find this really encouraging that Crossway would take up such a cool project.  Makoto Fujimura has illuminated The Four Holy Gospels, being the first person in the 400 year history of the King James Bible to have an illumined book of the four Gospels.  Fujimura is known for his use of traditional Japanese Nihonga techniques and his passion for reconnecting Christian faith with fine art. Editions of The Four Holy Gospels will be available January 31, 2011. An exhibition of the works featured in The Four Holy Gospels will take place from December 9 through January 9 at the Dillon Gallery in New York City.
