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"

    The Voice New Testament is meant to "uniquely [represent] collaboration among scholars, pastors, writers, musicians, poets, and other artists" - experts in the original Greek and writers familiar with today's English. Based on "A Word from Ecclesia Bible Society," this translation is geared toward the unchurched and those who have never read Scripture.

    Its "Introduction to the New Testament" is helpful to understand what is meant by "testament" and put the New Testament in its historical and spiritual context. I especially appreciate how it ends: "As you read through the New Testament, we invite you to enter into this story of beauty and grace. Unlike other stories you may hear, ancient or modern, this story is completely true."

    I also appreciate the writers' stated desire to encourage readers to break the habit of reading only a few verses at a time, and, instead, enter into the story and experience the fulness of Scripture. However, three of the four reading plans - for Advent, Lent and Easter, and personal growth - contain daily readings of only a few verses, no context. The exception was the plan to read through the New Testament in 24 weeks.

    The Voice also includes a "Topical Guide to the Notes" and "The Titles of Jesus."

    I don't care for the "Screenplay format" and fail to see how it "[intensifies] the dramatic presence during the public reading of Scripture" if you have to clarify who is speaking and give stage directions to let listeners know the attitude of the speaker or to whom he was speaking.

    Overall, I am unimpressed. It is unlikely that I would recommend this translation of the Bible.

    This review is based on a digital copy of The Voice New Testament: Revised and Updated I received free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program.
