Those familiar with any part of the Bible will recognize John 3:16, but find a mind-altering difference. The words are fresh, new, and sound like the 21st century. That's because it is from The Message, a presentation of the Word of God crafted for a modern age. Unlike other audio Bibles, The Message was fashioned by Eugene Peterson to be read aloud, not as a study Bible.

Incredible! How the Bible is supposed to be learned. Apr 26, 2008
Everyone should hear the Bible this way. If your an audio book reader you will enjoy The Message in the most extraordinary way. I clap, laugh, get angry and above all I WORSHIP the GOD of ALL! It is a very ingenious way of presenting the Bible. It familiarizes the listener with the Bible in an intimate way so that when you read the Bible (regardless of translation) you will say "HEY! I Know this!" and suddenly the verses stick in your mind. Memorization is great but FAMILIARIZATION is more important. Knowing the truth is better than memorizing it. Because Knowing it means you invested Time, Life, Love and Energy. Mr. Peterson is brilliant and a scholar. I respect his work and applaud what he has done. Thank You for giving me the ability to learn about the God I have longed after for so many years. Thank you.
In Christ. JPW.
Absolute Truth! Feb 12, 2007
This is an excellent way to learn the truth about life in an understandable way. I am excited!
Fun to listen to Sep 6, 2006
I did a lot of thinking about which translation to buy before picking this one. I wanted a modern translation which might be easiest to comprehend while listening only (particularly listening while driving). This is turning out to be much better than expected. It really is easy to understand and comprehend from just listening. I look forward to each new CD. I think they picked the reader because he was easy to listen to and not another authoritarian voice. (Incidentally, I do like the booming authoritarian voiced readings but this is really good as well). The more tedious parts of the bible, such as the various laws, are easier to comprehend (for me) while listening than reading (normally have a hard time focusing on the material). The readings are done with enthusiasm and the stories (Abraham, Joseph, David, etc) come alive and seem much better to me than a dramatization would. I'm only as far as the books of Samuel but haven't been disappointed yet, although I've hit some of the psalms and new testament. I plan on complementing this version with the Scourby King James Version at some point in the future. It should be fun to listen to the same passages from the complicated but poetic King James and the lively Message version. Any version is good but this one is pretty cool.
Refreshing, Easy listening, neat and compact Mar 8, 2006
The message bible is in easy-to-understand language and makes my 2 hour-a-day work journey an absolute pleasure. It's great to fill your mind with God's word and get the big-picture perspective of hearing the Word read aloud.
This edition comes in a neat compact case which makes it easy to manage and keep in the car.
