What About The Voice?


The Voice

The Voice Bible


I was very excited to be able to read “The Voice Bible” on my Kindle. I ran into all sorts of problems in trying to do so.

1. The introduction was almost too wordy with explanations.

2. The format of the book didn’t translate to Kindle format at all. Verses were interspersed with other verses (17, 18, 19, 31, 32, 33, 34, 20, etc), the notes broke up the reading format. It was all very confusing and I had to give up in trying to read it because every book in The Voice Bible was the same way.

3. Seems like it might be a good book for a Bible beginner, because it explains things that people who read the Bible take for granted.

4. You can’t navigate by book or chapter with the Kindle so I was stuck going page by page to get anywhere.

5. There were good introductions to each book.

6. In the speaking format, God is called “Voice”.  In my opinion, I think God should be called God.  He is so much more than a voice.  However, in this version’s defense I give you 1 Kings 19:11-12 – 

11 And he said, Go forth, and stand upon the mount before the Lord. And, behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains, and brake in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind: and after the wind an earthquake; but the Lord was not in the earthquake:

12 And after the earthquake a fire; but the Lord was not in the fire: and after the fire a still small voice.

This might be a good book to read in book format, but in Kindle format, not so much. I would have liked to investigate it more, but I was unable to due to the problems mentioned above.
