Today’s audio talks about The Lutheran Heritage Foundation.
Imagine trying to understand Scripture in all its richness without the benefit of Luther’s Small Catechism. Or trying to teach young children basic Bible stories without books like A Child’s Garden of Bible Stories.
For Lutheran churches around the world, these situations are reality. They don’t have the basic books, so vital to understand the Lutheran faith, because no one has translated them into their languages.
Through the mission gifts of people like you, LHF translates, publishes, distributes and introduces books that are Bible-based, Christ-centered and Reformation-driven.
In more than 70 countries and 90 languages, thousands of people have come to faith in Christ because they’ve been able to read books like The Good News About Jesus or Luther’s Small Catechism in their own languages.
LHF has published the catechism in more than 50 languages, and 15 additional translations have been requested. In the past decade, LHF has published and distributed more than 450 titles and 3 million Lutheran books to pastors, seminary students, missionaries and churches – all at no cost to them.
