Product Description

The Voice Bible translation is a faithful dynamic translation of the Scriptures done as a collage of compelling narratives, poetry, song, truth, and wisdom.
The Voice calls the reader to step into the whole story of Scripture and experience the joy and wonder of God’s revelation. Created for and by a church in great transition, The Voice uniquely represents collaboration among scholars, pastors, writers, musicians, poets, and other artists, giving great attention to the beauty of the narrative. The heart of The Voice is retelling the story of the Bible in a form as fluid as modern literary works yet remaining painstakingly true to the original manuscripts. This translation promotes the public reading of longer sections of Scripture-followed by thoughtful engagement with the biblical narrative in its richness and fullness and dramatic flow.
This is an updated and revised version of the New Testament edition, now at an even more affordable price.
Features include:
  • Italicized information added to help contemporary readers understand what the original readers would have known intuitively
  • In-text commentary notes include cultural, historical, theological, or devotional thoughts
  • Screenplay format, ideal for public readings and group studies
  • Book introductions
  • 8.50" x 5.50" x 1.25"

    Thomas Nelson the ones who put out the NKJV decided to put out a version of the Bible that Twists the words around! For Example The Voice replaces God with "Eternal One" among many others. They do have good notes though. Would I buy it? No!

    Bookneeze provided me with an e-copy of: The Voice - New TEstement. To be honest, I could not figure out how to download the copy onto my computer. However, here is what Sarah said about it:

    Designed to help readers step into the story of scripture, the Voice Bible contains the complete New Testament. A team of scholars and a host of other contributors came together in compiling the scriptures and commentary in an effort to tell the gospel in story form.

    I requested this book, hoping not only for a fresh look at my favorite book, but some real meat to gnaw on. I'm not a Bible scholar and am not as studied up as I should be, but this version seemed a little over simplistic. Often the commentary did little more than repeat the previous verse when the meaning was already clear. Also, some of the terminology used and interpretation of scripture left me wondering what the original source of the translation was.

    Like I said, I'm not a scholar and have no place knocking any translation on my own merit, but for now, I'm sticking with the New King James Version and the Strong's Concordance. Not saying The Voice is, but Bible interpretations can be dangerous and destructive, so tread wisely. Pray and listen to His voice in all things.

    I received this book from Thomas Nelson Inc. through Netgalley and I must say it took me a while to start using it because I thought it was just another Bible but now that I have used it along with the NIV I do like it! I like the way this bible was worded it reminds me of a study Bible. If there is something I don't understand when reading my NIV I will go to this New testament Bible and it has it worded to where you can understand it so it's easier for me to understand. I am not sure what Version this Bible is just like others are King James or NIV. I don't have anything bad to say about this Bible on how it was written or how it looks and I do plan on recommending this Bible to friends and family.

    This is what this Bible is all about:

    Wow! I am just amazed at how much I love this Bible! Since I got it, I have barely been able to stop reading. I am addicted to this Bible! This is very exciting and I am anxious to read the entire NT. The annotations are deeply insightful; for example, in Ephesians one of them says, "Paul knows that the real battles and dangers we face are not against flesh and blood. The enemies we see are real enough, but they are animated by spiritual forces of darkness that stay strategically hidden from view...."

    There is an anointing on this Bible. It is such a blessing! God seems to have gifted the people who worked on this translation with special abilities of articulation and expression. Reminds me of God blessing the Israelites with special skills to build the temple(stonecutters, etc.)

    My review is inadequate to express the wonders of this Bible translation. I recommend it highly.

    To review The Voice (New Testament only), I read portions of the New Testament alongside my current Bible, the NASB, for clarity and accurateness. I came away very pleased with this version. They explain that The Voice is a combination of word-for-word and thought-for-thought, of which I usually fall into the word-for-word.

    The fact that this is not a gender neutral version appeals to me, as well as the fact that they don't use today's trendy language. Their goal was to "capture the beauty and brutal honesty of the Scriptures in a language that is timeless and enduring." I believe they have accomplished that.

    I enjoyed the Screenplay format in the Gospels, as it brought out nuances I wouldn't have thought of before. In Matthew 26, it states that Caiaphas ‘screeched' when Jesus spoke of Who He was and His glory with God. Screeched, although I've never read it before in the Bible, made me think of demons screeching over the power of God. They are, after all who Jesus was making an open display of and conquering. It gave me a new perspective.

    Some of the aspects included are:

    Retelling the Bible not simply in words but also meaning and experience

    Recapturing the passion, grit, humor and beauty that have been lost in other translations in order to foster spiritual growth and theological explorations out of a heart for the mission of the Church and to worship God

    Collage of compelling narrative, poetry, song, truth and wisdom- reading the story of God with your whole heart, soul and mind

    They include four ways to Step into the Story:

    Readings for Advent

    Readings for Lent and Easter

    Read the New Testament in 24 weeks

    Daily readings for personal growth

    Each book has its own introduction. I love the extra ‘delineated material that expands the theme of the reading, which is disclosed in a second (deep mustard) color that includes cultural, historical, theological or devotional thoughts to enhance your knowledge.' This further clarifies information pertinent to that portion of Scripture that gives a deeper meaning to the context.

    The end of The Voice Bible includes:

    Topical guide to the notes

    The titles of Jesus

    Let The Voice ‘reach, touch, change, move, teach, surprise, heal, inspire, humble and transform you!' Will this version take the place of my current Bible? Probably not, but it certainly will enhance my understanding of the New Testament in ways never done before! For some of you, this will be your Bible of choice. (It comes in the complete New and Old Testament, but I only have the New Testament.) The purpose of reading the Bible is to grow in Christ as a believer. This version can help you do that!

    This Bible was provided by Julie Belschner of Thomas Nelson Publishers in exchange for my honest review. No monetary compensation was exchanged.

Q: What is the difference between The Message & The Voice?

A:

The Message is a paraphrased text with the intent of simplifying the Bible for easy reading. The Voice is a dramatization of the text; it reflects the meaning of the text in the original language, but adds in italics nuances that would have been assumed by the original readers. It also offers screenplay format where applicable to enhance public reading of the Scriptures.
