The Red Letters Project: Gospel of Matthew Review

The Red Letters Project is a performance of rock music based on the words of Jesus (sometimes written in Bibles as words in red letter text so one can distinguish these words from others) from the Book of Matthew in the New Living Translation (NLT) of the Bible. This is definitely a one-of-a-kind listening experience that has 40 tracks—both sung and narrated. The NLT of the Bible is a translation of the Bible into a clear, readable form of modern English. If you don't care for the NLT version of the Bible or rock music this probably isn't for you. I am used to the King James Version (KJV) and this version follows pretty well, but in my opinion the beauty and eloquence of the words from the KJV are lost in the NLT. The music of The Red Letters Project is Christian rock, but is harder rock than I am used to as Christian rock. I found this rendition to be quite interesting and definitely unique.
