Making the Bible Clearer Feb 14, 2008
I have tried a variety of daily reading Bibles and studies over 20 years and I haven't been able to get through one of them. I am very much enjoying The Message Remix as it ties related readings in the Old Testament to the New Testament every day. It does read like a novel and I agree with the previous reader - it's made me turn back to my main Bible. The reflection questions at the end of each section are excellent and not too easy to ignore, if you're really searching (I don't mean to preach - all of our walks with Christ are in different places.) This daily reader is hitting me just right. I've spent little time in the Old Testament out of fear and misunderstanding (I once bought a book entitled 'Who's Afraid of the Old Testament God' just because I was glad to find that someone else out there was afraid, too! I never read it...)

REMIX - enjoyable Nov 15, 2007
I bought The Message/Remix after reading a book by David Crowder where he used references from this particular version of the bible. It is an excellent daily study--mixing Old Testament and New Testament readings - with questions to ponder at the end of each days reading. It is a perfect slice of inspirational reading and i usually read it first thing in the morning. It actually "feels" like you are reading a HUGE novel- I really like the wording and the contemporary slant that is used on the verses. Very nice.
Very refreshing take on Scripture Apr 10, 2007
Having grown up in church I started feeling a little too familiar with Scripture. I found myself opening my NIV and simply re-reading all the parts I've highlighted.
In somewhat of a rash decision I clicked through a few reviews before deciding on this one. ...and I'm definitely glad I did. The Message translation is very readable and has definitely given me new perspective on things.
On one hand, I like the way it couples Old Testament passages with the New Testament. For example: you read "In the beginning God created the Heavens and the earth..." then it hops over to John and you read, "In the beginning was the Word..." It provides some neat parallels, but sometimes I find myself so engrossed in the Old Testament story that I don't want to break to the NT just yet.
All in all, it's very good and it's given me a new appreciation for the Bible.
Fresh and engaging Mar 5, 2007
I love this Bible! Other daily Bibles bogged me down, whether they went straight through or combined an old and new. I love the flexibility of this, and the fact that I don't have to start at January 1 and never miss a single day. I have read the Bible all the way through before, but reading it in The Message translation and with the pairings arranged by Mark Tabb, it has new life! Below someone mentioned that it is not a good study Bible, but that's because it's not a study Bible; rather, it is designed as a daily reading Bible. I recommend this especially for high school and college students or anyone wanting a fresh look at Scripture.
