I am very excited and extremely proud of everyone on the team. The Voice New Testament shipped this past week and it looks (and more importantly it reads) fantastic. Wow.
I appreciate Chris Seay's original vision, the team's execution and especially Frank Couch's diligence, patience, skill and overall management of the project. I know it will bring people to Christ and bring people to God's word in a fresh and new way.
For those of you who don't know, the Voice is a new Bible translation. It began as a creative idea from Chris Seay and it brings the best of many artistic and scholar worlds together to create a thoroughly readable and interesting read through Holy Scriptures. It's not a paraphrase, but a true translation that richly captures the orignal author's "voice". The writers have also included additional helpful notes or sidebars that puts you, the reader, into the scene and experience of the New Testament and the story of Christ.
