The Voice™ Bible 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.
What we like about The Voice:
This version of the Bible is fairly unique. It is based on the earliest and best manuscripts from the original languages (Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic). However, it is a different sort of translation. It combines the strengths of scholars who are experts in the original languages with modern writers, musicians, and poets who are skilled in their use of English. Their goal was to be faithful to the original languages while at the same time beautiful and readable to our English-speaking audience.
I think this has been pulled off extremely well! The readability of this Bible translation is truly beautiful, and I love the way it reads like a script for a play. It is very clear who is speaking in each verse or section, without being distracting or annoying.
