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, enabling them to hear God speaking and to experience His presence in their lives. Through a collaboration of nearly 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 painstakingly true to the original manuscripts.

Features include:

  • Two-color text
  • Italicized information added to help contemporary readers understand what original readers would have known intuitively
  • In-text commentary notes that include cultural, historical, theological, or devotional thoughts
  • Screenplay format, ideal for public readings and group studies
  • Book introductions
  • Presentation page for personalization
  • Reading plans for Lent, Easter, Advent, and more

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 ... Read full review

Google price is very high-- book is a great read!
Firstly, I wonder why Google is asking $31.00 for this book, when Amazon and Apple sell the same book for $19.99! This book is a wonderful read, but I
will not buy it through Google due to the high price. Though I'd like to give Google 1 star for over pricing this book, it truly is a 4 star read. If the writers didn't take the word "angel" out of the Bible and replace with messenger, or use "Eternal One" in the place of God, this would easily be a 5 star book. Sure I read why they did it, I just don't like it. For me, it's hard to read messenger when I know its angel, or read Eternal One, Eternal One, Eternal One when "God" fits so much better. This Bible reads like a story. The closest thing I can compare this Bible to is the Amplified Bible for understanding (without being so darn wordy and hard to read as the Amplified is), and the NIV for ease of read. It's wicked easy to read and even easier to understand. I read 10 chapters the other night as I simply could not put the book down. But like I said, I wish "Angel" was not eliminated 100% of the time and "God" was not eliminated 70% of the time. I like this book a lot, I just will never love it for those two reasons.
