Overview
20 cd's
unabridged
run time: 20 hrs
read by: Kelly Ryan Dolan and Carol Nix

"This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need to be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life."

Those familiar with any part of the Bible will recognize John 3:16, with a mind-altering difference. The words are fresh, new, and sound like the 21st century. That's because they are from The Message, a presentation of the Word of God crafted for a modern age. Eugene Peterson, translator and editor, learned from his years of teaching and pastoring that most people, through familiarity or frustration with the Bible, were missing the whole
message of Scripture: ?the Word that God uses to create and save us, heal and bless us, judge and rule over us.? So he set out to give us that word in language we use every day ? a reading Bible that would enable the Word to penetrate our hearts and minds, transforming us day by day into the person God desires us to become.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message: The New Testament in Contemporary Language?

Great King James Backup  Dec 1, 2008
As a reader of the King James I sometimes find it hard to really understand the scripture; by going to the Message Bible I can read the scriptures in todays language that gives me a clearer picture of what the scripture means. One of the many good backups to the King James. I among many wish the print was a little larger.
 
I Prefer the non numbered version, but still great!!!!!  Dec 1, 2008
The Message: The Bible In Contemporary Language, Large Print Numbered Edition
I love "The Message Bible" I do prefer the original none numbered version, because it showed that it wasn't made as a study Bible.
The Message Bible Version is Great, enjoyably, and educational. but not Really made as a study bible. But instead is written in such a way that it draws great word pictures, it was made for explaining the bible in a more fun and leisurely way, like enjoying the word of God in say, a Park setting, or on the beach and the like. the translation though does not go "off" on the meaning of the Bible. Defiantly one of my favorite versions, but for a study or apologetic version I would recommend the "New King James", "NIV" or the "Authorized King James" Versions.... The message is absolutely wonderful....
Blessings to you all,
Mike Orton
 
Perfect for new Christian or anyone who is curious about the Bible  Nov 24, 2008
I ordered this for a friend who wants to understand the Bible and already has the King James version. She loves it!!
The Message numbered edition gives the scriptures with the numbers so you can compare with other translations if you want to. Such as John 3:16... so you can look the same passage up in any other version and get a different perspective.

After studying the bible for many years, I actually love it myself because it has much more modern language and easier to understand without losing the real meaning. I read a few scriptures from the Message at a recent bible study and we were all amazed at how it made it much more modern for us in this day.
Get the numbered edition (earlier Message version read like a book, with chapters.(without scriptures numbered)

Highly recommend this edition and am going to order myself the same one now for studying the Bible. At this price- what do you have to lose? Think you will love it.
 
Handy and easier to use  Nov 11, 2008
I really like this little reference. The size is just right and the text is large enough to be easy to read without squinting. Having the New testament, Psalms and Proverbs together in one small portable reference is especially useful.

I enjoy the freshness of the Message. It gives one another angle to view scripture and often gives surprising insight into difficult passages. Finally, I really enjoy the insight the book introductions provide as they are so right on. Well done NavPress, well done!
 
The Message by Eugene Peterson(the Bible in Contemporary language)  Oct 11, 2008
For the first time I could understand pretty much every line and verse I come across in Eugene Peterson's Bible in contemporary language.

The paraphrasing really made an huge difference to help clarify things for me!
