I've been looking forward to owning a copy of the Voice Bible for a long time. I was finally able to purchase one for my husband and myself for Christmas this year (2014) and was surprised when we received the Bible. The description said something about fabric, but it didn't say that the entire cover was made of fabric with exception of a small leather-like tab on the front that says "The Voice." That was a disappointment, but the words of The Voice translation was wonderful. There are a couple of spots where it doesn't quite say things the NKJV does in the translation. Other than that, I love it! Many other places speak the Scriptures in a very unique way that multiplies the meaning a lot more than the other translation. I'm very happy with my purchase.
I absolutely love the Bible! It was delivered in a timely manner. It was embossed and everything was spelled correctly. I love how it reads and use it every Sunday to reinforce and enhance the scripture reading.
This version is beautifully written. It is very readable and aligns appropriately. It reads like a story and tells you who is speaking. My husband loves his and reads a lot more and my teenager enjoys reading it also and has asked for one for herself.
I find it so sad that some people have reviewed this translation with a pious, elitist attitude BEFORE THEY ACTUALLY READ IT (or at least spend significant time with it, instead of just reading the "sample pages"). It breaks my heard that these are probably those who also claim that there is no real translation except for the difficult to read KJV...and thus create a divisive faction in Christ-followers. Honestly, this translation is wonderful for reading...which I have used daily for months. I love reading daily from The Voice...I actually hear the voice of God and see His greatness and holiness like in no other translation. Yes, it is a little unconventional, and I don't use this version for deep "study" of the word of God. On the other hand, it sings off the page! I am not saying that it is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but I encourage EVERYONE to just give it a try...a REAL TRY in DAILY time with the Lord. The Voice may not be perfect, but I believe God's word transforms lives and this translation makes it easily digestible. .
