Reviews - What do customers think about Message/Remix Bible-HC?

Intentionally Altered Meanings  Feb 22, 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.
 
A pleasant change  Feb 10, 2007
As someone who has "heard the Bible stories" so many times, I have finally succumbed to "The Message" phenomenon. (I had initial misgivings - could this possible take the place of Bible reading on a daily basis?) Despite my original protests, I actually like it! It's made the Bible a new experience for me. Highly recommended.
 
Not standard size  Feb 8, 2007
This is a great bible. My only regret is that I did not pay attention to the size dimensions of the book. Just know that this is not a standard size book.
 
It's a book and its a counselor!  Jan 18, 2007
The Message Remix is awesome! Basically a biblical languages teacher named Eugene Peterson accumulated all the information and interpretations of the bible, analyzed it and created a paraphrased bible so that those who read it could understand in todays terms everything that God tries to tell us through His Word. The reason it's called "remix" is because it also lists each individual verse that is paraphrased. For instance, he may paraphrase the chapter of Psalm 23 as a whole to basically get the message across, but he goes into even further detail to mention every single verse so the reader can see how it backs up that message. The original Message Bible, didn't include the verse numbers, but The Message Remix was revised later on to include verse numbers to make it more of a message study bible. With all the research, interpretation and analysis, it took 10 years to complete. I've noticed that many books I read that are written by ministers often reference The Message Bible. I highly recommend it because since it helps make the scripture more applicable, it helps me to understand God's character better and makes the bible much more fun to read.
 
The Message Remix Review  Jan 11, 2007
Very easy to read and understand. You feel like you are reading the Bible, but it is in much easier language to understand. Very good for adolescents to read and understand.
