Dr. Michael F. Bird is a well known New Testament scholar. When I met him a few years ago, he was teaching at Highland Theological College in northern Scotland. Since then he has taken a prestigious post in Australia at Ridley Melbourne College. Recently, he offered some reflections on The Voice translation.
Here is his review: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/euangelion/2014/10/reflections-on-the-voice-bible/
Dr. Bird is an able commentator on culture and Scripture. Look for his books and blogs. In addition, he is one of the funniest people I’ve met, especially among scholars who tend to be a rather dour lot. While Dr. Bird takes his subject seriously, he doesn’t take himself too seriously. One person has called him the Conan O’Brien of evangelical scholars.
