Thomas Nelson The Voice Bible: Step Into the Story of Scripture - eBook

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.

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

I found this translation of the bible most refreshing. You can recognise the "tradtional" bible in the background but it is much fuller and richer in style. It has allowed me to see the bible in a more cultural context in the way the truths are expanded to help us think like the ones for whom it was originally written. While I would probably not use this for a word study of the bible, for example, it makes reading large passages more fluid and engaging. You will not regret investing in this translation.
