Have you heard about The Voice? No… not the BBC saturday night talent contest, but the fresh, unique translation of the Bible, which reads as a story.
The Voice is unparallelled amongst Bible translations. It is a faithful, dynamic equivalence translation, which aims to be as readable and understandable as is possible. Sounds pretty familiar right now… Right?
But wait. Unlike most dynamic equivalence (thought-for-thought) translations, which still produce bibles which look and sound very “Bible-ish”, The Voice uses a new, distinctive presentation to add clarity and conciseness to the text.
Inspired by screenplays, The Voice is broken up into blocks of spoken words by various characters, direction and narrative, interspersed with side notes—brief commentary—to explain in greater depth what is going on.
By presenting the Bible in this way, and through the use of everyday, conversational language, The Voice is uniquely approachable to people who have traditionally avoided the Bible due to it’s complex wording, daunting presentation, or often confusing and sometimes misleading language. By ensuring it is always clear who is speaking, what they are doing and what their motivations are, readers can engage with scripture in a way which has otherwise been difficult for many.
And the inclusion of commentary in amongst the text—though always clearly identified as such—rather than separate, as is the format in most study bibles, helps answer difficult questions and add further clarity exactly when it is most needed. And a team of 120 scholars of ancient and modern languages, theology and biblical studies, as well as pastors, writers, poets, songwriters, humorists, speakers and other bible users ensure that the content is always theologically trustworthy, readable and relevant.
Whether you have never picked up a bible before, have read it cover-to-cover numerous times, or anywhere in between The Voice has something for you.
Want to know more? Head over to hearthevoice.com to read samples and get a feel for it, or visit The Hub, to take a closer look in person.
The Voice is available from just £4.50 for the New Testament (Paperback), £19.99 for the complete Bible (Hardback) and is also available in a variety of leather and fine bindings.
The 2013 Canterbury Church Book and Desk Diary is now in stock, ahead of the official publication date!
If your church has been taking bookings for 2013, and have had nowhere to record them, fret no longer, get down to The Hub and place your order.
The CBDD is a must have resource for busy ministers, lay preachers and office staff.
It is available in a durable bottle green hardback, and is also available to order as an A5 and full-sized personal organiser edition (FiloFax).
Prices for all three editions are just £14.99—a full £4 cheaper than the pre-order price at Amazon.
So if you’re interested, stop by today and take a look.

Since we moved from St. Paul’s Church, to our new, improved, high street store, it’s been a pleasure to welcome many of our loyal customers back. However, we are well aware that not everyone knows how to get to our new location, so we’ve taken the time to help you find us.
Arriving By Bus / Train or on foot from Walsall Town Centre.
A large number of our customers arrive by bus, train or walk from Walsall town centre. We are a short, less than five minute walk from Walsall central bus station.
From Walsall Bus Station, you can walk up Park Street, past Poundland and Wilkinsons, and then follow Stafford Street down to the first junction with Littleton Street, and you will find us there, or down St. Paul’s street, between Tesco and Park Place Shopping Centre (Quasar Cente), which leads directly to Stafford Street.
If you have a bus-pass or day ticket, or if you are traveling to Walsall on one of these services, busses stop in Stafford Street, less than 200m from our door, and depart from Walsall every few minutes. The following services stop near our front door: 19, 29, 301, 302.
Arriving by Car
One benefit of our new location is ample nearby parking for our customers arriving by car.
Loading and unloading: For customers who are loading or unloading at The Hub, we have a small loading bay at the back of our store. We have space for a single van, and up to two cars, which is useful for customers making large purchases, taking or returning bookstalls, or for customers with mobility problems, for whom long walks are not possible.
Due to it’s size, we cannot guarantee that this will be available at all times, and if you are relying on making use of this service, and for access instructions, we strongly encourage you to call us in advance of your arrival, on 01922 279227.
When this is not available, their is also parking in Stafford Street itself, just a few yards from our door. Parking in Stafford Street is pay-and-display, and payable in affordable, 10-minute increments. It is free for Disabled Badge holders.
Free Shoppers Parking: Walsall has recently reduced the amount of free parking for shoppers to almost zero. We do not think this is right, and are continuing to make our feelings known to Walsall council—we encourage you to do the same.
However, Tesco Extra Walsall continue to offer 2 hours free parking for Walsall shoppers. Customers wishing to take advantage of this should be users of the Tesco store, or one of it’s ancillary shops, however, we believe that the parking conditions at the store permit any additional time remaining can be used in other Walsall shops, including The Hub, which is located just a 2 minute walk away.
Pay-and-Display Shoppers Parking: Anyone shopping in Walsall Town Centre for more than two hours can take advantage of ample parking, at council run and private car parks. There are numerous council run car parks nearby our store, including the Green Lane Car Park, which has pedestrian access to Stafford Street, and the Bate Street/Day Street Car Park which is on the opposite corner of the Stafford Street/Littleton Street junction to The Hub.
Charges for Council run car parks are as follows:
£1.40 up to 2 hours
£3.80 up to 4 hours
£5.00 maximum daily charge
There are also several private car parks, including one on Stafford Street, which offer daily parking for around £3.
Introducing our new Loyalty Scheme at The Hub
Times are tough. We know that money is tight, you have a lot of choice about where to shop, and every penny helps.
So to thank you for continuing to choose The Hub, today we’re announcing our new Loyalty Scheme.
It comes in two flavours, and you’re more than welcome to try both.
Our 15% Reward Card is simple.
Spend £10, get a stamp. Collect 5 stamps, and get 15% off your next purchase*.
Unlike most other schemes, you will start seeing savings quickly, and there is practically no limit on the amount you can save. Because it’s a percentage discount, the more you spend, the more you save. You can collect multiple stamps per purchase (spend £20 get 2 stamps, spend £50, and get 5!)
Our second scheme is our Hot Drinks Loyalty Card.
We already offer the best value real tea, coffee and hot chocolate in town—it’s just £1 for tea and coffee and £1.20 for our Hot Chocolate—and now it’s just got even better.
Every time you buy a hot drink in store, you get a stamp, get 5 stamps, and your next drink’s on us. That works out at around 83p per cup for tea and coffee.
Grab either one, or both, in store today, and start saving with The Hub!
*Discount is only applied to full priced items. Cannot be combined with any other offer. Discount will not exceed £25 in a single transaction. Some exemptions apply. Full terms and conditions available on request.
