Only just learned about this translation. It is great for those who are new to the Bible because it has explanations on culture and setting where needed. Read some of The Voice in digital version on biblegateway in order to read some of it yourself.

The Voice New Testament: Revised & Updated (Paperback)
I am always a little tentative when I review another "version, translation" of the Bible. There are so many varying translations out there and I have copies of a good many of them. Some of the translations are exemplary; others are not, so when I was asked to review the Voice NT I did so with some trepidation.

Luckily the Voice NT is one of the good ones!!

Granted I can only base my initial review on the New Testament version of this Bible translation but am already looking forward to receiving the full version of the Voice when it is released later in the year.

I really liked the layout of the Voice NT. There are several suggested daily reading plans celebrating Advent, Lent, Easter, Personal Growth and a great guide to read through the New Testament in 24 weeks. I also appreciated the Topical Guide found at the end of the Voice as well as a detailed explanation of the Titles of Jesus. There was great notation throughout the book, commentaries that gave historical and theological insight into the scripture passage.

I also quite liked how the Voice NT accentuated the speakers or individuals in scripture by highlighting the names boldly. For example Acts 5:12 vs. 20 reads: Messenger of the Lord: "Go the temple...", vs.23 Temple Police: "The prison was secure...", vs. 25 Temple Messenger: "You know those men...", vs. 28 High Priest: "Didn't we give you strict orders...", vs. 29 Peter and the Apostles: "If we have to choose between obedience to God...", vs. 35 Gamaliel: "Fellow Jews..."

I found this way of blocking off and highlighting the speakers to be a helpful, distinctive and decidedly different approach to focus on the individual voices in the scripture passage.

The Voice is an absolute treasure among the many versions of the Bible that are available. I truly believe that the translation is written in a manner that will illuminate God's word anew for countless readers, for I found myself able to understand passages in a deeper way. I do recommend that readers take the time to read the preface, which explains how the translation came to be and how the text is organized. Once you've done that, you will be ready to dive in.

Many features of The Voice are truly helpful. For example, the addition of words and phrases in Italic type that were added to help the reader better understand the text brought a lot more clarity to what I was reading. When I was trying to wrestle through a passage in the book of Galatians that was written in the NIV format, I then read the same passage in The Voice New Testament, and found that I could much more easily follow the message contained in the verses! The Voice especially shines in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, as well as in the book of Acts and the book of Revelation, for it is here that the screenplay format it used, and used surprisingly effectively. When I first read about this feature, I admit I was a bit skeptical. However, this format truly brought the passages alive in a new way, and I felt like I was there, on scene, witnessing the drama of Jesus' life for myself!

The Voice really must be experienced first hand to be appreciated for what it is, and I encourage you to get this wonderful version of the Bible for yourself or for a loved one or a friend who is seeking to deepen their relationship with Jesus.

I highly recommend The Voice and give it 5 out of 5 stars.

As a youth pastor, I'm always searching for practical tools to help students engage with Scripture. To this end, I am very pleased with The Voice, a new translation put together by the Ecclesia Bible Society. Although it is only currently available in a New Testament version, the strengths of this translation are clear and I eagerly await the full version.
What I appreciate about The Voice is first and foremost its narrative approach to Scripture. After all, the Bible is a story book, so it only seems appropriate that we approach it as such. It is God's true story of creation and redemption. This narrative approach comes through clearly in the choice of the translators to write it as a dramatic script. Written in this way with the text divided into the various parts (or voices) of the biblical characters makes the story come alive. As a youth pastor, The Voice is a wonderful resource for engaging students because it is a readymade script ' students are not merely reading through verses, they are performing scripture. It is a highly readable translation which makes it very accessible. Whether in group or individual reading, the characters of the story come alive making Bible reading less a laborious task.
Like production notes and director cues, the introductory notes at the beginning of each book and the 'sidebars' added to the text help provide valuable background information.
The Voice is truly an asset to any Bible reader looking for a fresh way of engaging scripture and it will certainly become one of my most used tools in my youth ministry tool-kit.
