A FRESH TRANSLATION TO MARK THIS 500TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE LUTHERAN REFORMATION

Several years ago, work began on a fresh translation of the Bible for our generation and beyond. Since then we have been updating you on the labors of The Wartburg Project. Now The Evangelical Heritage Version (EHV) New Testament & Psalms is available! (The complete Bible with the Old Testament will become available in the fall of 2019.) The EHV is available through Northwestern Publishing House. Those who visit our worship services can receive a complimentary copy. Examine this fresh translation produced by over 100 WELS & ELS pastors, professors and lay people. May God’s hand of blessing rest on the continuing labors of The Wartburg Project!
