My review:
This is a beautifully bound book and the pages are easy to read and pleasant to view.  The Voice is an interesting and new translation of the Bible; however, I'm not comfortable with this translation.  Of course, I had never even heard of translations other than King James and NIV until about 3 years ago and I switched from KJV to NIV because I never could understand the KJV. 

I liked the different reading plan options already set out for me.  I think it would be a nice gift book for someone who really likes bibles or who would like a devotional book.  Just know when you buy it that the translation is a little different than normal, but that's not always a bad thing.  It's possible it'll grow on me as an additional resource to use in my daily prayer time. 

Interesting in purchasing?  Check out Amazon or Christianbook.com.
Thank you, Thomas Nelson, for providing me a copy of The Voice of Psalms to review.
