The Bible is alive like no other book, and The Voice draws you in like no other Bible.
Scholars, poets, musicians, and story tellers have come together to create this singularly unique translation that transports you into the Bible's narrative. Don't just read the Word, step into the story.
I've been inspired recently by posts from Dr. Creig Marlowe and some comments I heard recently by N. T. Wright. There is some new thinking here for me, but as Ecclesiastes reminds us: "there is nothing new under the sun."
The Voice has the best of both worlds in that it is both a lively contemporary dynamic translation by people who have a sense of contemporary idiom and the product of careful, thoughtful review by biblical scholars with respect to its accuracy in conveying the original languages. This is combined with a clear and attractive layout and some explanations of cultural and theological terms, and one has a biblical translation that people can understand without needing a pastor or commentator – it is the Bible for those who are turned off by or simply do not understand “religious” language. It has been a delight to work on this translation and to realize how clearly it will communicate to this or that person whom I know. It is also a translation that I enjoy reading myself, when I do not want to read the text in Greek and Hebrew.
