New Testament

You will fall in love with the Bible in this bold, new translation and format.

Beautiful: achieves literary and artistic excellence

Sensitive: respects cultural shifts and the need for accuracy

Balanced: includes theologically diverse writers and scholars

Twenty-one noted Bible scholars and accomplished writers have retold the story of God's love and redemption of creation. The very best minds available have captured the mood and voice of the original New Testament writers, producing a work that is a uniquely personal engagement with the biblical narrative in all of its richness and fullness and dramatic flow. The skills of the scholar and the artist have been blended to create an experience of joy and wonder.

"Faithful to the original, this fresh translation will be difficult for readers to put down. I encourage both seasoned and new readers of the Bible to further their study of Scripture with The Voice. It will transform your understanding and perhaps even your life."

-Tremper Longman, PhD

Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies / Westmont College

"Every generation faces the challenge of translating the Bible into the idioms of that generation so that it can communicate with the startling freshness of the original texts. The Voice does just that."

-Alan Culpepper, PhD

Dean, McAfee School of Theology / Mercer University

"Presenting the biblical contents in a lyrical and narrative manner is another way of teaching and preaching the Bible...opening up the opportunity to hear old stories in a fresh way or allowing one to hear them for the first time in an engaging way."

-Darrell Bock, PhD

Research Professor of NT Studies / Dallas Theological Seminary
