Reviews - What do customers think about Message Bible-Complete (New) (66 CD)?

The Message  May 27, 2010
The CD of Peterson's "The Message" took long to deliver (I think it came from the UK), but it was worth the wait. Peterson is a master interpreter into today's English.
Terrible translation, Author made the bible PG-13!  May 25, 2010
Overall, the reason I got this audio CD/bible is because I heard a sample of the narrator and I was hooked. That part remains the best part about this product.
What I dont like is the fact that this audio bible attempts to be 'hip' and modern by using modern day euphemisms and slang (e.g. 'lock, stock and barrel' - to attempt to mean 'in its entirety')

An exerpt from: [...]

"Since it professes to be in contemporary language, The Message abounds in modern expressions: "stuck up" (Pro. 30:13), "clean house" (1 Pet. 2:1), "get lost" (Gen. 19:9), "moonlighting" (1 Thes. 2:10), "said our piece" (1 Thes. 2:2), "slept with" (Gen. 4:1), "have sex with" (Lev. 18:6), "hanging out" (Pro. 7:12), "lock, stock, and barrel" (Mat. 4:9), "sponging" (1 Thes. 4:12), and "six feet under" (Isa. 38:18). Although such language is to be expected from a Bible that makes such a profession, the result is a Bible that does not read like a Bible at all..."

It fails because many of the modern day equivalent slang are just way too corny, outdated and mess up the meaning and original intended translation.
The author also strips many of the stories of their 'ludeness' and actual events by making the stories acceptable for a PG-13 audience. Such examples are:

1) (Genesis 19: 1) The story about how 2 angels stay the night with Lot and the men of Sodom come to the house and demand the men come out so they can have 'relations' with them. The Message bible literally says, "give us the men so we can have 'our sport' with them". What?!? That is a terrible translation and does not reveal the true intent of what the village men really wanted.

2) When Moses came back down from Mt Sinai after receiving the law, the Israelites were engaging in 'group relations' aka o.r.g.y.
The Message Bible translates it as "they were having a 'very' wild party". Really? I would not have known the true nature of what really happened if I had not read the correct translation.

Overall, I am very disapointed because the bible has finally made its way into the modern era of political correctness and has been stripped in many places of its true message. This product should NOT be called 'The Message'

BTW, the narrator is the best Ive heard so far, I wish he would narrate a NASB version or something comparable. I would buy that product for sure.
does not play in a CD player, wrong format I guess. Need to make that clear  May 7, 2010
Bought this for my Mother and she can't even play it because it is MP3 format, the add says CD. So was a waste of my time and money.
Great value!  Apr 21, 2010
This is a great value! It's the whole Bible for about eleven dollars. Some car CD players will play MP3s, but most won't, so you have to convert them for an iPod or something that plays audio books. Or, you can listen to them as MP3s, but every chapter in the Bible is its own file. Granted, it takes a little work to put all the MP3 files together into bookmarkable audio books, but it's worth it. I use the shareware Audiobook Builder on the Mac. I put Genesis in an audio book by itself, the Gospels all together, Acts by itself, and all of Paul's letters together. I haven't gotten around to the other books yet. In fact, the next time I'm making an this site order, I'm going to buy the other set of The Message CDs for the same price featuring different Christian celebrities reading different portions of the Bible.
