THE STORY OF THE VOICE

THE STORY OF THE VOICE by David B Capes with Chris Seay and James F Couch Jr.

The Voice is a translation of the Bible that has been out for a few years. I had done a review on The Voice in the fall of 2011. I thought the translation was easy to read and understand. There is a background on how it came about and information on the contributors included in The Voice Bible. This book goes into a detail of how the translation came about and the contributors connected with the translation. You will find bios of the contributors and what each contributed to The Voice.

You will also learn the method of translating some of the Greek and Hebrew words to English. The facts are interesting and for a pastor or Sunday school teacher thinking about using The Voice, it should be helpful for them to know just how close to the original language they tried to keep this translation. Even if you are looking to teach from The Voice this book is helpful in giving you a full understanding of the translation.

THE POINT

THE POINT The Redemption of Oban Ironbout by William E. Jefferson

Searching for peace and inspiration a couple, Goodwin and Hollie, visits Estillyen Island in hope of finding a connection with a sketch Goodwin drew when he was young from a photo his grandfather had. He remembered stories his grandfather told him about the island and house on the point. He wanted to find the house on the point and to find what connection it had with his grandfather. They met different people and some strange animals on their journey and visit Monks at a monastery. They attend inspirational readings that the monks would do about the Bible. When Goodwin makes contact with the owner of the house, it does not start out on a friendly note, but he shows his sketch to the man and finds out the man knew his grandfather and a friendship is started. That is enough of the story line; I do not want to give away any information about the ending.

The author goes into lot of detail of describing people, objects and areas, which sometimes become a little distracting from the story he is trying to tell at that time. The monks do a series of dramatic Bible readings that add inspiration to the story. The couple met many interesting people at these readings and made new friends.

I received this book free from Handlebar Marketing for purpose of this review, I was not required to write a positive review, the opinions I have expressed are my own.
