The Voice (Book Sneeze Review)

Book Sneeze is a unique sight that offers books to bloggers to be read and reviewed. So far I have received one book and was quite impressed with the whole idea. The books are absolutely free but you can only request one at a time. Once you have posted your review for one book you are allowed to choose another. It's a great way to get free books and be introduced to new authors.

The Voice was my first Book Sneeze book to review. It is an excellent translation of the New Testament that seeks to "retell the story of the Bible in a form as fluid as modern literary works yet remaining painstakingly true to the original manuscript." One of the most unique characteristics of this translation is the screenplay format. Whenever there is dialogue, the speaker is indicated which allows for the reader to read the text as a narrative. For someone who loves fiction because of how the text flows, I felt that I was reading a true story as opposed to biblical fact.
