For a deeper understand of all that Greek! (and Aramaic) Mar 28, 2008
I'm very liturgical and conservative in my Bible reading & lessons and do not appreciate wild interpretations of scripture. I do appreciate the scripture being put into the context with which I speak today, and that is exactly what this book is. Eugene Peterson spent a lot of his time preaching on the meaning of the scripture and this a book of those sermons and more. Interspersed among the verses are insertions about the message that takes the reader one step further in understanding the scripture and putting it into terms that are easily understood. If you read the Beatitudes and don't come away with a further enlightenment of the Bible and enrichment of your faith, then you're a stone!
Conversations - Message with its Translator Mar 27, 2008
Great devotional and reading Bible. Replaced my message Bible. Just what I was looking for.
Practical, but not thorough Feb 23, 2008
The Message is very readable and relevant, offering dramatic insights into passages that seem less personal in other translations. The print size and presentation (single column on off-white paper) are pleasing to read in this edition of the Message Bible. Eugene Peterson's comments and reflections are poignant and thought provoking. My main disappointment is that his notes are somewhat few and far between in some places. For example, no notes are included between Ezekiel chapters 1-18.
Helpful & Enjoyable Feb 15, 2008
I admit it - I'm a Bible Geek. Especially when preparing a lesson or sermon, I love to compare many different translations/paraphrases and different reference materisl and notes. This was a welcome addition to my collection & has been very useful in finding ways to explain a verse or story in a quick few sentences OR being able to find a new veiw or question to consider - so very important when talking with people who've been hearing Bible stories & passages since they were toddlers.
you'll love this if you like the Message Jan 25, 2008
Conversations is everything plus commentary by Eugene Peterson. It is placed in small increments with the text, in a different font. As it is in your reading path, you can't miss it and don't have to divert your eyes in order to get those precious nuggets of knowledge.
