The Voice- an emergent Bible translation?
“The Voice”, a new translation of the New Testament, was published in 2008, but I only recently became aware of it through some scathing reviews such as this from Chris Rosebrough at Extreme Theology:
Rosebrough dissects an sample passage from John 1:9-14, and makes some comments which seem valid at a microscopic level, but miss the point of what the team behind “The Voice” are trying to achieve. Rosebrough is quick to criticise ‘The Voice’ for incorporating into their translation a worldview which he evidently disagrees with, but seems unaware that his own approach to biblical translation is equally reflective of a particular worldview.
I’m wondering if anyone else has come across “The Voice” or reactions to it?
