The VoiceÍ Bible translation is a faithful dynamic translation of the Scriptures done as a collage of compelling narratives, poetry, song, truth, and wisdom. The Voice calls the reader to step into the whole story of Scripture and experience the joy and wonder of GodĂs revelation. Created for and by a church in great transition, The Voice uniquely represents collaboration among scholars, pastors, writers, musicians, poets, and other artists, giving great attention to the beauty of the narrative.

Bible translation is a full space, with many different translations based on a variety of different philosophies.
Every Bible I’ve read falls somewhere on a continuum, between a word-by-word
translation with a focus on literal accuracy and paraphrases that capture the flavor and flow of the Biblical narrative.
The Voice is a completely different Bible-reading experience.
As its name implies, this version is intended to be experienced as a read-aloud. The audio recording of The Voice’s Book of Revelation emphasizes the strengths of this artistic rendering of the gospel message.
However, I would not recommend it for daily study.
The Voice is a unique, artistic experience. Many sections are written in script form, with cues for various readers. Additionally, there are many additions in italics which are intended to add to the flow of the reading, but are distracting in print.
If you would like to experience the New Testament in a completely new and unique way, while reading it aloud, I give this version my highest recommendation.
