The Voice Bible

Summary from Book Sneeze: The Voice™ is a faithful dynamic equivalent translation that reads like a story with all the truth and wisdom of God's Word. Through compelling narratives, poetry, and teaching, The Voice invites readers to enter into the whole story of God with their heart, soul, and mind, enabling them to hear God speaking and to experience His presence in their lives. Through a collaboration of more than 120 biblical scholars, pastors, writers, musicians, poets, and artists, The Voice recaptures the passion, grit, humor, and beauty that is often lost in the translation process. The result is a retelling of the story of the Bible in a form as fluid as modern literary works, yet remaining painstakingly true to the original manuscripts.

Features include:

* Italicized information added to help contemporary readers understand what the original readers would have known intuitively
* In-text commentary notes include cultural, historical, theological, or devotional thoughts
* Screenplay format, ideal for public readings and group studies
* Book introductions
* Presentation page for personalization
* Reading plans for Lent, Easter, Advent, and more
* Topical Guide to the Notes
* Topical Guide to the Scripture

I love the layout of this bible!  I found it easy to read, almost like a story, that it is presented in an easy-to-understand language.  Using the kindle, you have the ability to jump to referenced sections easily and by hitting the back button, you are right back to where you were reading.  There are also three years of daily scriptures to help you to read your bible daily.  When God of Jesus is speaking, I like how it shows up as "Jesus:" so you can easily see when He is speaking.  This is a nice version to have with you all the time when you have your kindle with you!  I would highly recommend this version to anyone, especially to someone who is new to reading the bible!
