I always enjoy reviewing a fresh translation of the Bible and “The Voice” is no exception. I thought this was an excellent translation for reading and for simple enjoyment and basic comprehension of the Word of God.

I had the privilege of being able to review The Voice New Testament when it first came out several months ago and you can see my review of that here:

I was really excited to get to review the Old Testament once it came out and I am happy to say

***My thoughts on The Voice Bible, a new translation from Thomas Nelson***

The Voice, a new Bible translation from Ecclesia Bible Society and Thomas Nelson Publishers, brings an unusual “flavor and color to the Bible story” enhanced by screenplay formatting, color-highlighted text and speaker identification tags. The result is a “…hybrid of the word-for-word, thought-for-thought…” transcription most translations use. While The Voice has met with mixed reviews I’ll begin with what I liked.

I own several different translations of scriptures, and this one is, by far, my favorite, for reading. (Not for serious study). Authors such as Donald Miller and Lauren Winner, were part of this amazing project, to put a style and voice, back into the greatest story ever told. I highly recommend adding this translation to your collection. One other thing, the reading plan included, is a three year through the Buble plan, which I especially love.

Last year I had the opportunity to review The Voice New Testament. I really enjoyed it, so I was thrilled to have the chance to review the whole Bible. Needless to say, I love to have the whole Bible in this new version.

Here's a quick review of what I liked about it previously: The Voice is a collaboration of many scholars, artists, and pastors. It is not just the work of one person, and it is not just the work of scholars. I think that it is fantastic
The one thing we do not lack is variety in Bible translations available in English today. There is a veritable alphabet soup of versions available: KJV, ASV, ESV, NASB, RSV, NKJV, NRSV, NLT, NIV, CEV, TEV, HCSB, CEB, among many others. Now, in such an environment, another version has been produced: The Voice Bible. Why yet another version? What can The Voice provide that is missing in other Bibles?

The Voice Bible has some distinctive elements worth considering. Its translation committee involved
A new translation of the Bible into English does not contain the name “Jesus Christ” or the word “angel.” It also prefers the word “emissary” over “apostle.”
Frank Couch, Thomas Nelson’s lead editor on the project, told The Christian Post that the purpose of The Voice was to make the Gospel message easier to understand for modern audiences.
“The Voice has not claimed to more accurate than any other translation, rather it is more easily understood than any other translation,” said Couch.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Voice translation of the Bible. It's one of the most accessible translations around and really helps clarify some difficult passages and also frame very familiar ones in new light. I'm not a biblical scholar, so I can't speak to the integrity of the translation in keeping with the original Scriptural texts, but I don't recall any major theological missteps in what I read. My only negative takeaway (and it's not really a negative, just a passing observation), is that the ...more

I love this Bible. It is so friendly to the artist's mind. Color, emotion, passion, and zing while holding to the true intent of the Word. Love!
Blanca Velasquez
I love this translation! It's the Bible for the rest of us! Try it. You won't be disappointed.
Kara Poe Alexander
I really like this version of the Bible. The context it provides and the way it combines thought-for-thought translations with word-for-word translations makes for an interesting read. The only negative thing about this Bible is the way the pages are labeled with the book and chapter that is on the page and not the chapter/verse of the first (or last) verse on the page, thus making navigation and finding specific verses more difficult. I hope they correct this in the next version.
Linda Henderson
This is a really great version of the Bible to read, especially for people who are fairly new to Bible reading or study. It has lots of extra information included with the passages, which is helpful to the understanding of the Word. It reads very smoothly.
Heidi Dyckow
Purchased this book while I was still in the book of Job. I am really enjoying it. I am now in chapter 18 in the book of Revalations. The foot notes explain the difference from 1st century Christianity and how things are now

I'm really enjoying reading this translation! It's a real page-turner, and I can't put it down. The language is fluid and powerful to read aloud.
