Suzanne Sexton4 Stars Out Of 5Great Translation- Incredibly small printJanuary 29, 2018Suzanne SextonQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4Enjoying this translation immensely (on my phone), but the paperback copies I ordered for gifts have incredibly small print. The text notes are insightful and very helpful, especially the historical and geographical notes relevant to a particular passage. Please devise or provide some larger font options!!!

Jamie MGender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Surprisingly Good!January 19, 2018Jamie MGender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This review is for the Leathersoft Plum/Orange Shimmer. I should say from the outset that I was not sure about this translation... or the color! But both are growing on me, hence my 5-star rating for exceeding my expectations.
I actually did not want this color. What I wanted was a copy of the Voice that had a durable smyth sewn binding, with the added bonus of a two-color interior, topical guide and full-color maps, and as far as I can tell Plum/Orange is the ONLY option available if you want all these features. Plus the fact that it is currently 80% off the retail price makes it the only worthwhile option, in my opinion.
Having recently watched The Gospel of John, The Visual Bible on DVD (Stock No. WW106613), which I highly recommend, and which follows the Good News Translation, I wanted to read through the same using The Voice. I have to say it has added quite a bit to my reading enjoyment of this Gospel, which I have read many times before. I like the narrated style and think it would be a great way for churches and youth groups to put on short skits or plays using the Scripture.
The Voice should not be used as a primary reading and study translation, but it sure is fun to read, while also offering original language notes, footnotes that provide literal meanings, and italic type within the biblical text to show supplemental material that has been added to help provide context for readers who are unfamiliar with Scripture or the ancient world. It is like having a study note within the text. Very helpful and very interesting.
I also appreciate the capitalizing of personal pronouns with reference to Deity, and surprisingly do not mind the reference to YHWH as the Eternal or Eternal One, or to Jesus as the Voice. If you read the preface these translation choices are explained in detail and do make sense given what the translators are attempting to convey.
Again, the Voice will never become my go-to translation for personal reference or study, but I like what it adds to my walk with the Lord and the understanding of His Word. It is surprisingly good, with superior craftsmanship and, thanks to CBD, offered at an unbeatable price. I think it is worth spending the $15 to have and enjoy.
