Book Review/Giveaway: The Voice: New Testament. Ends March 21st
The Voice New Testament. Step Into the Story of Scripture by Thomas Nelson Publisher.
About the Voice: The Voice invites a generation of story-lovers to step into the Bible through a fresh expression of its timeless narrative. It recaptures the passion, grit, humor, and beauty that is often lost in the translation process. Readers will enter into the story of Scripture more deeply, and discover that they can actually hear God’s voice speaking into their life today.
The Voice is the result of the extraordinary contributions of 27 Bible Scholars, 51 writers, and 36 other contributor. Scholars include DavidBCapes, Tremper Longman, Darrell Bock, Alan Culpepper, Kenneth L Waters, Sr., and Peter Davids. Among other, the writes are Chris Seay, Lauren Winner, Leonard Sweet, and Greg Garrett. http://www.hearthevoice.com/
Features include: Italicized information added to help contemporary readers understand what the original readers would have known intuitively.
In-text commentary notes include cultural, historical, theological, or devotional thoughts.
Screenplay format, ideal for public readings and group studies.
My Review: If you are looking for new ways to read the bible then pick up a copy of The Voice New Testament Bible. It represents a new approach to the Bible translation while sticking to the original translation. People find it difficult to read the Bible, but the Voice reads more like a story. It helps to bring each character and events closer to the reader.
Quote: The Voice helps them to encounter “the glory of the Lord” and be “transformed by the Spirit of the Lord” (2 Cor. 3:18).
You will also find parts of the Voice Bible written in screenplay format for example:
Father: Go and work in the vineyard today.
Son: No, I will not.
Official: Sir, this is my son; please come with me before he dies.
Jesus (interrupting him): Go home. Your son will live.
The only negative thing that I have to say about the Voice is that I find the print too small. If you like reading novels this one is for you.
Disclaimer: As per FTC guidelines, I received a copy of the Voice from Thomas Nelson, the publisher in exchange for my honest review. I received no monetary compensation. All opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone.
