KING JAMES LIVE!
Bringing the glorious language of the King James Bible to life, Ashley Strand crowds the stage with characters in this solo performance of the unabridged text of the Gospel According to Mark.
Star News called it, "an audacious, gauntlet-throwing performance," and Encore Magazine called it a "must see!"
The Gospel was written to be heard, to be spoken, to be shared in fellowship, and told in its entirety. Experience the Gospel how many early Christians first did, as an unbroken narrative of the mission of Jesus Christ, from his baptism to his crucifixion and resurrection.
You will be surprised by how clear the King James language becomes when it is spoken. You will be amazed at how well the unedited Gospel works as a play. You will hear old familiar passages with "new ears."
King James Live is a great way for anyone to discover the Gospel, for the faithful to rediscover it, and a treat for anyone who loves language, literature, or theatre.
