I am excited to be a part of The Voice.
What intrigued me about this project was the fact that Chris Seay and his team were attempting to find authors/artists/pastors to represent a particular person. In other words, some newer translations represented the work of a person (i.e., Eugene Peterson) or one committee. As a result, all of the letters seemed like they were written by the same author. The Voice is more like an anthology, with different authors/artists/pastors taking on different people from the Scriptures.
For this project, I am tackling Malachi.
In addition to translating Malachi, I am working on a paragraph per chapter attempting to bring some insights to some of the following verses:
“I hate divorce….” (Mal. 2:16)
As you can see, it is is easy for people to misapply or misinterpret these passages or even take them out of context. If you have any insights to share, let me know as a comment or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
