Reviews - What do customers think about Message New Testament w/Ps & Pr-Burgundy Bond (Lrg Size)?

What a Shame  Mar 26, 2007
Not that putting the Scriptures into words that can be understood is a bad thing, but that as a singular goal in and of itself is shameful. This method detaches the Scriptures from what they have always existed as: divinely beautiful, heroic verse, majestic Prose, a treasure from heaven, something that surpasses everything that conforms to the zeitgeist. In other words, the Scriptures are meant to transcend the fads of our day and lift us outside time into the presence of God. All that this and many other modern translations do is constantly remind us that we are in the 21st century and surrounded by multitudes of T.V.-softened brains and Britney-Spears-listening pop fanatics. The Scriptures are meant not only to be understood, but to communicate the life and grace of Christ to us: something that exists outside of time and is therefore unchanged by it. I am sorry to see such putrescent translations (and music and television) pouring out of the Evangelical Community. I am sick and tired of it and this translation just goes too far. "Contemporary Language"? That sounds like an excuse to be irreverent, shallow, and philosophically deprived. It is translations like this that secretly make me wish the Scriptures simply remained in Latin.

I pray that the youth of our day, instead of trying to conform Christianity to their own idioms, will transform themselves (or rather let God transform them) to fit with what Christianity is and always has been: the glorious and ancient faith. Those two paths are incompatible and so one must be chosen over the other. I choose the latter; people who insist on such rubbish as this choose the former.

A piece of advice: do you want the Scriptures to have more meaning for you? Turn off the television and start reading books: not the modern rubbish, but good, classical literature from around the world. Not the Newspaper, not the internet, but Books. Read Virgil, C.S. Lewis, Chesterton, Homer, Dickens...that should be a good list to start you off. Also, turn off your Britney Spears and either keep five minutes of silence or listen to Bach, Tallis, Byrd, and even Beethoven if you must. Once you do that for a time, the Scriptures will take on entirely new meaning, and you won't have to ruin their Sacredness in the process.
 
For reading enjoyment and enlightenment, but not doctrine  Mar 2, 2007
I greatly enjoyed this volume not becasue it replaced other versions, but because reading in a new way old familar passages makes one say - Did it really say that and you get the other version out and compare and yes it usually did say what the author has presented in modern terms.

This is not a true translation or even a paraphrase tranlation, but a consolidated version in modern lanuage attempting to smooth both timeline and content in a logical format and therefore should not be used for doctrinal study and should probably be avoided in group worship setting for the same reason thus avoiding controversy.

However, for personal edification or even family worship it is a delightful volume - easy to read and easy for children to grasp. New wording and combined textual contexts often make old familiar texts come alive with meanings missed or simply lost sight of in the past.

If you desire both modern lanuage and a more consolidated format you should enjoy this book and benefit for the time spent.
 
The Message  Jan 23, 2007
The Layman's Bible - great for those who have difficulty understanding the King's English. This is the Bible in "Breaux Bridge English"! Easy to read and study.
 
A Marvellously Inspired Work  Jan 19, 2007
We dearly love this book and refer to it constantly. It helps us understand in today's language--but more than that--it clearly interprets like it is. We very highly recommend this book to everybody!
 
Reading The Message  Jan 16, 2007
I didn't realize that the print would be so small. This information may have been given, but if it was, I overlooked it. The content is wonderful and so easy to understand.
