It is truly a one-of-a-kind reading experience for it presents the Bible to the reader in a form that we are all familiar with. We all watch movies, shows, and some perhaps read plays; well reading this translation creates a similar experience. But it is the actual writing itself that is so beautifully well written in my opinion. It is simple to read but never losses the initial intent of what is being said.
In my opinion I believe EVERYONE should own and read a copy of this translation. It has improved my understanding and has given me a new way of thinking but some subjects. I highly recommend it.
The Voice is written as a narrative; it provides background information and fills the readers in on the gaps (some contextual, some from Old Testament, etc.) so the reader is never lost.
In the beginning the authors point out the reasons for writing The Voice and how exactly it was created. They do a beautiful job putting all the pieces together to actually give the reader a FRESH experience, to read the Bible in a way like never before. As the authors point out this is both a word-for-word and thought-for-thought translation of the Bible. It never twists or manipulates the words and is ultimately an exciting, simple, pleasant and informative way of reading the Bible.
