Item description for Message/Remix Bible-Blue Bond by Eugene H. Peterson...
Overview God¿s Word was meant to be read.
But more than that, it was meant to be understood. It was first written in the language of the people¿of fishermen, shopkeepers, and carpenters. The Message gets back to that: You can read it and understand it.
In The Message Remix, there are new verse-numbered paragraphs that will help you study and find favorite passages. Or, you can just read it like a book and let the narrative impact you. After all, it is God¿s story, with its heroes and villains, conflicts and resolutions. Either way, it¿s God¿s Word¿the Truth¿in a user-friendly form.

Reviews - What do customers think about Message/Remix Bible-Blue Bond?
the message May 22, 2008
I really enjoyed this modern version of the New Testament, Proverbs and Psalms. It brought to life passages which I had become too accustomed too. I did not always agree with the interpretation, but even so it caused me to think about the meaning and the aqpplication to my faith and life. Ross Kafer
Message New Testament/Psalms/Proverbs Feb 22, 2008
I didn't realize how small it was. If I had known the size I would not have ordered it. It may have told me somewhere but since I have a larger one just like it I wrongly assumed this one was the same size.
Excellent Version for Comparitive Study Jan 1, 2008
This Bible is an excellent addition to my other Bibles in that it gives me a greater sense of the full meaning of the text. Very helpful as study tool.
For entertainment, not Bible Study Jun 14, 2007
I own several Bibles (NASB, NKJV, KJV, NIV, ESV), but "The Message", to me is a kind of mellow, easy read. Is it accurate to the Greek, Hebrew and Aramaic? No way! It's not supposed to be. As a matter of fact, the author makes it crystal clear. Would you use this text to research the Divine Council, the Nephilim, Gog/Magog Invasion or other Prophecy? I should think not! Yes, Jesus is referred to as Master in this text. Is it a New Age Agenda at work? Umm...nope. Take it for what it us: modern slang for lay-people to read. Once people get the point and become interested, then they take the next step. Once the Spirit begins to move in people, it's unstoppable. That's my 2 cents....
Good Reading Bible Jun 8, 2007
This Bible is one that is to be read to get the message of the Bible across it is not ment to be one for study. The NIV, NASB, NRSV and other versions of the Bible are much better for study. But this is great if what you want to do is have the word of God speak to you. Different translations have different purposes. I own quite a few translations including the Message. Dr peterson's purpose was not to produce a Study Bible it was to get the message of the Bible out to a contemporary audience that speaks and reads modern English.
