Video: Marquis Laughlin’s Dramatic Reading of the ESV at ICRS 2011

Crossway hosted a banquet at ICRS 2011 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, its legacy, and its influence in the development of the ESV translation.

  1. I wish he would do the Old Testament already. I’ve had his Audio New Testament for years and waited patiently for the Old. Any plans on the horizon????

  3. I’ve had the opportunity to see Marquis Laughlin perform, and meet him. He is a very gifted, and gracious brother in Christ. When I encountered his reading of the ESV New Testament, on the ESV website in 2004, it led me to purchase a copy of the ESV Bible, and his dramatic narration on CD. It changed my appreciation for the Bible, because no translation reads, or sounds like the English Standard Version.

  4. Thanks for giving your ideas with this blog. Furthermore, a fairy tale regarding the lenders intentions any time talking about foreclosed is that the bank will not have my payments. There is a certain quantity of time that the bank will need payments here and there. If you are way too deep in the hole, they’re going to commonly demand that you pay the particular payment entirely. However, i am not saying that they will not take any sort of payments at all. Should you and the bank can have the ability to work anything out, the particular foreclosure approach may cease. However, if you ever continue to pass up payments under the new program, the foreclosed process can pick up exactly where it left off.
