I was sent a copy of The Voice Bible New Testament in trade paperback early in the year as a gift from my publisher, but I was glad to get a copy for my Kindle as well. I have found great delight in this translation. On the web site, you can compare TVB with other translations and you can download a sample chapter or book of the Bible. Here’s the blurb from Amazon:
The Voice™ is a faithful dynamic equivalent translation that reads like a story with all the truth and wisdom of God’s Word. Through compelling narratives, poetry, and teaching, The Voice invites readers to enter into the whole story of God with their heart, soul, and mind, enabling them to hear God speaking and to experience His presence in their lives. Through a collaboration of more than 120 biblical scholars, pastors, writers, musicians, poets, and artists, The Voice recaptures the passion, grit, humor, and beauty that is often lost in the translation process. The result is a retelling of the story of the Bible in a form as fluid as modern literary works, yet remaining painstakingly true to the original manuscripts.
The format utilized in The Voice makes the Scriptures wonderfully easy to read. I’ve been sharing verses on an almost daily basis on my Facebook Page, and there has been continuous feedback from my Facebook readers about these little snippets from the word of God.
I have used the NASB as my study Bible for the past 35+ years, and I don’t see that changing. It is such a familiar old friend to me by this time. However, I often use other translations for my devotional reading, and The Voice Bible is right at the top of the list for me.
Although I have only the New Testament, the full Bible version is now available. I can highly recommend it to my readers.
