Over the past six weeks of Lent, my life has profoundly changed. During this time, we sold our house and are moving–and it all happened so fast! I had no idea of the changes that were coming up for me when I decided that rather than putting something down for Lent, I would pick something up. Rather than giving up a guilty pleasure or bad habit, I chose to use the 40 days of Lent to read through the New Testament. (Read about that decision HERE.)
I actually picked up a few different versions as I read, but when a friend told me about the new Bible version, The Voice , I took a look at it online, and I’ll just tell you: It was love at first read!
I think you might just fall in love with this version too. It definitely reads more like a novel. Even the pages are set up with plenty of margin and white space so reading is easier. What I also noticed immediately was that rather than a study Bible with lots of notes and commentary covering up half the page, there are helpful notes inserted throughout. It’s almost like there’s a friend reading along with you, there at just the right time to give you a heads-up or a brief explanation to make your reading more clear. For example, when I was reading John 7, it mentioned the Festival of Booths. A note inserted in the text says, “On this holiday, everyone camps in temporary quarters, called booths, to remember that God was with their ancestors when they wandered for 40 years without a home.” This is the kind of Bible that I would feel comfortable handing to a new believer.
This week, of course, is Holy Week–the week leading up to Easter. In celebration of our Lord’s great gift to us, all this week, I’m inviting you to enter for the chance to win a copy of The Voice Bible. There will be five winners in all, and plenty of chances to enter every day–so give it a shot! See all the details below.
