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.
This special genuine leather Bible cover was designed and handcrafted with care in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Each cover is unique!
Although Buenos Aires is the wealthiest city in the Southern Hemisphere, 4 million people live below the poverty line. Additionally, more than 500,000 people live in substandard living conditions like shanty towns. Therefore Ecclesia Bible Society has partnered with La Misión Church to give hope to the people of Buenos Aires by assisting in economic development of the disadvantaged communities of the city. They seek to transform people’s lives by creating jobs with fair wages, decent hours, and favorable working conditions.
Handcrafting these beautiful Bible covers for The Voice™ is one of those opportunities. Each cover has been cut, sewn, stamped, painted, and oiled by craftsmen and women in Buenos Aires. Your purchase of this Bible helps in the efforts to lift this community out of poverty.
This Bible comes in any one of four colors; brown, red, green, and black. The color scheme can vary even within the same color family. The picture shown is a representation and may not be the actual color of the Bible you receive.
