I like that aspect of this Bible translation. It helps me visualize what’s taking place in the New Testament stories. I don’t like ... The Voice: Unnecessary but Captivating

On 10/6 Gilesatsea wrote: The Voice New Testament is a fresh look at some ancient texts. What's surprising is that in a culture so drenched in story, film, and the arts it is only now that we see literary devices of dialogue and other collections of these devices find it's way into the biblical narrative. The scriptures bridge ... The Voice New Testament

I’m not a Bible scholar and am not as studied up as I should be, but this version seemed a little over simplistic. Often the commentary did little more than repeat the previous verse when the ...

On 4/13 Bjr4christ wrote: The Voice is a fantastic Bible for public reading and dramatic teaching. Chris Seay and the Ecclesia team have done a fantastic job translating the NT into a readable, and user friendly translation of the Bible that can be understood by people in all generations. The Voice is also incredible for private ... Great Book

On 3/31 Janet wrote: I found this version of the Bible very difficult to review. On the one hand, it was refreshing to have it presented like a screenplay. It is a totally different way of reading the Bible than I have ever encountered before, and subsequently it made me look at Scripture in a new way. However there ... The Voice New Testament
