Book Review: The Voice

I have recently had the privilege to review The Voice New Testament: Step Into the Story of Scripture. The Voice shares the New Testament in a narrative, story-like way. It presents the Bible like a script, a play even, making it simple for the reader to distinguish who is speaking (I.e. Jesus: , Peter: , the Sadducees: , Scribes and Priests:, etc).

I would recommend this Bible to be read alongside your primary version (mine is NIV). Since it is presented so much like a play, it would be perfect alongside your family devotionals or just as a compliment to your own Bible. Having the story-like format, even noting who is saying the verse, really helped me to understand the context (perfect if you are not familiar with Bible places, daily life at the time of Jesus, etc.) I especially liked that The Voice includes brief notations relating to life at the time our Saviour walked amongst us in the flesh.

The Voice also makes available to the reader four different reading plans to immerse you into Scripture. I have been enjoying the 24 week schedule, perfect for an early riser that needs God’s Word to begin my day, and allows me to revisit Scripture throughout the day with busy young children, even if just for a coffee break.

Whether you are familiar with the New Testament or not, The Voice will immerse you into God’s Word to connect or reconnect you to Scripture in a way that will help you understand God’s GREAT Message for YOU!

I received a complimentary copy of The Voice for sharing my honest review through BookSneeze. I was not required to write a positive review.
