This morning, one of my parishioners mentioned hearing about a new translation. It's called "The Voice" (http://www.hearthevoice.com/) and sounds like an interesting take on the dynamic equivalence approach.

It sounds like it has created a bit of a stir given some of the translation decisions, and thus would be helpful for a pastor to have for that reason alone. (Especially since what the secular news outlets are reporting about it is not completely accurate.)

Any chance it would be coming to Accordance soon?

I know this thread was posted several months ago, but I concur... I'd really like to have this module available. I think it would be very helpful in helping my congregation engage with Scripture in a more dynamic way.

I concur.  I love this translation and often read it from the pulpit.  I would love to have the ability to read it side by side with another translation.

Having seen this translation in paper, I concur it would be a great addition to the text library. (a former prof of mine - David Capes, was the lead scholar on the project ...)

In Christ,

Me neither.
