The Bible is alive like no other book, and The Voice draws you in like no other Bible.
Scholars, poets, musicians, and story tellers have come together to create this singularly unique translation that transports you into the Bible's narrative. Don't just read the Word, step into the story.
I've been inspired recently by posts from Dr. Creig Marlowe and some comments I heard recently by N. T. Wright. There is some new thinking here for me, but as Ecclesiastes reminds us: "there is nothing new under the sun."
I have been involved in The Voice project for over five years. Many might well ask, "Why do we need yet another Bible translation?" Why? The Bible is an amazingly transparent and yet amazingly puzzling document. Theologians have been translating and interpreting it for millennia, and I daresay they will continue to do so for millennia to come. The Voice represents a new "voice" in the translation and interpretation undertaking, one that genuinely attempts to make the text accessible to the reader of the twenty-first century. Read it for yourself; better, engage it for yourself. Let it draw you in; let it speak to you. And discover in its words "the voice" of the biblical text.
