Reader's Theater Bible

Recently I saw a good deal on a leather-bound Bible of The Voice, a translation I've found intriguing for some time. Today I used that Bible to carry to church instead of a smaller NKJV or ESV translation I've often used.

I have to say, it literally reminded me of going to church as a kid. It must have been that long since I've used a full-size Bible like that on a Sunday morning. I've got a few other leather-bound Bibles at home (KJV, NKJV, NASB) that have percolated to the surface this summer of translations and notes to read next.

In ordering that new translation recently, ChristianBook.com also had a paperback version of it for $0.99. I added one of those as well. Other than a title page in the front and an ad on the last page, it's literally all Bible text with some notes along the way.

If you've ever seen reader's theater before, this is like the entire Bible turned into a reader's theater script. I think it would be useful to have at least four or five copies on hand so that if ever one wanted to be able to easily turn parts of the Bible into a mini drama, they would already have scripts on hand ready to go.
