When Caroline Cobb realized she would be turning 30 on 11/11/11, she decided to give herself a crazy goal: write a song for every, single book of the Bible in just one year, by 11/11/11. Even though she has two albums under her belt and loves to write songs, this was quite the undertaking for the busy, stay-at-home mom and Young Life leader. But, by God’s grace, she did it. She had written a song for every book of the Bible… mostly during nap times, actually.
Through the help of a successful Kickstarter campaign, Caroline is took a dozen of the songs from her “year of biblical writing” and heading into the studio to record her third album, 'The Blood and the Breath'. Beginning with creation and ending with the second coming of Jesus, this album traces the biblical story of redemption: the “scarlet thread” that ultimately points to Jesus’ death and resurrection.
“There are so many stories in the Bible, but they are really all telling the same bigger story: the story of redemption, the story of a loving God who rescues us from sin and death through Jesus. I’m so excited for people to have an album that will tell this story,” says Caroline. “After all, this is the Story that gives meaning to our own.
Caroline is also the founding member of “The Scripture to Music Collective”, a blog featuring an ever-growing collection of songs that faithfully and creatively tell God’s Story. The idea for this site came from her personal goal of writing a song for every book of the Bible.
