Reviews - What do customers think about The Message// Remix: The Bible in Contemporary Language, Mustard?

compact and lightweight  Mar 13, 2007
Nice exterior, lightweight and very compact - my husband uses this bible for traveling. A refreshing translation.
 
Intentionally Altered Meanings  Feb 24, 2007

Several passages are paraphrased in a way that their meanings are totally off-base. For one example, look at Matthew 18:17.

Proper translations:

"...But if he refuses to hear the church, let him be to you like a heathen and a tax collector." New King James Version

"...and if he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector." New International Version

The Message:

"...If he won't listen to the church, you'll have to start over from scratch, confront him with the need for repentance, and offer God's forgiving love."

In case you were wondering, Jesus' audience would have treated a heathen/pagan or a tax collector as an outcast/outsider or a traitor. I have no idea how Peterson came up with "start over...confront...and offer God's forgiving love". As a high school English teacher, I would not accept this as a proper paraphrase from my teenage students. It's actually quite pathetic, in my humble opinion.
 
excellent  Jan 15, 2007
Excellent service and excellent Bible. My 16 year old daughter loves it. The Bible was brand new with cool mustard-color-textured cover. It is, of course, not a translation, but a paraphrase. The point is to start reading. Thank you for great product and service.
 
Recommended for EVERYONE Interested in Going Deeper in Bible Study  May 21, 2006
Quick version:
This is a wonderful addition to anyone's Bible study, and works great for younger students who need help understanding and relating to the text as well as older readers who may enjoy a fresh perspective. The pocket edition in particular is great for someone looking for a travel size (who does not have vision problems).

Expanded coverage:
I cannot say enough about the Message in general, as I have found it to be a wonderful translation that really drives home the applicability of the Bible to our everyday lives, even today.

The Message//Remix is the same as the original Message, but with quick-reference verse numbers.

I should probably go ahead and put a disclaimer that I am not some crazed religious fanatic, but simply an average college kid that tries to follow Christ as best as I can. I know everyone clings to their opinions of translations, but this really is a great one to keep things real. Keep your NIV near by, but try this one as well.

As far as this particular version of the Message, the Mustard Pocket Edition (which, oddly, this site does not have clearly labeled - please note that this IS THE POCKET EDITION, and IS SMALLER than the "regular" Message), it is also a great buy.

The this site price is the most competitive I have seen while shopping around.

The size is great - it is much smaller than the original edition, meaning it fits in small spaces (purses, for instance) better. However, if you have trouble reading small print, the pocket edition may not be for you.

Also, according to the inside cover of my copy, there is a lifetime guarantee: "This Message//Remix is manufactured to serve you for a lifetime. If at any time the binding fails because of manufacturing defects or you just wear it out from use, you may return it for a free replacement. ... If the same binding is no longer available, your Bible will be replaced with one of the same or greater value."
That's commitment there.
 
Message//REMIX from a Youth Leader  Aug 29, 2005
I am a youth leader @ Threads Church in Kalamazoo, MI and I have found that the Message//REMIX is the best choice for the High School and Jr. High students to help them explore God's Words in a language that is actually understandable to them without carrying around a bible dictionary or a concordance. While I have many resources to use, I use the REMIX as my Bible as well.
