Those familiar with any part of the Bible will recognize John 3:16, but find a mind-altering difference. The words are fresh, new, and sound like the 21st century. That's because it is from The Message, a presentation of the Word of God crafted for a modern age. Unlike other audio Bibles, The Message was fashioned by Eugene Peterson to be read aloud, not as a study Bible.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message: The Complete Bible in Contemporary Language [Audio Bible on Cassette]?

A Closer Ride With God  Oct 6, 2008
The Message is made available to the members of our congregation. It has greatly incresaed Bible study, especially for those who listen to it as they commute to work. For any who are more comfortable listening than reading, I highly recommend it.
The Message by Eugene Peterson  Apr 11, 2008
"The Message" is a paraphrase of the Bible. It is easy to read and understand; however, readers should be cautioned that this is one author's interpretation. "The Message is not THE BIBLE and is marketed as a paraphrase. This is also not a verse by verse paraphrase but rather a chapter by chapter look at how Eugene Peterson interprets the scripture. Therefore, it changes the meaning of scripture that is conveyed in trusted translations of the BIBLE.
Regarding the 5-disc MP3 version  Jan 25, 2008
The Message is a great translation for listening to the Bible. The 5 MP3 CDs are an economical and convenient way to get the material. As others have noted, the readers are very easy to listen to. The production is very well done.

I hate to be the one to nitpick, but I noticed several dozen numbering errors in the file names and in the MP3 meta data. Perhaps I'm handicapped by a poor media player but I had to correct some of these files by hand for the chapters to sort perfectly. I'm certain that in most cases the errors go completely unnoticed by listeners because the files themselves are in the correct order on the CDs. The files on CD 4 are arranged in a completely different manner than the other discs.

So while I found the MP3 arrangements imperfect, the content itself is superb and deserves 5 stars. Buy it.
awesome!!!!  Sep 17, 2007
like my title this version is amesome. it's cheap enough to buy it. i have listened to it at work and learned so much, i also have been listening to it as i read the bible, so i am hearing and reading it. for if i listen i can drift thoughts, or things of many other things, if i just read it late at night i can fall asleep, or realize the last 2 chapers, i don't know what i was reading. so by doing both i have been getting heaps out of the old testament, which is hard for people to get warmed up to. But i sure have. you'll like it.
Great way to "read" the Bible  Jun 17, 2007
Having enjoyed the hard copy versions of The Message for years, I decided to invest in the CD version and was very glad that I did. Each chapter of The Message has a brief snazzy musical intro (which I *really* like) with a woman's voice giving a background about the church, the times and the general history. I suppose I glossed over this part in the written form, but I surely do enjoy listening to it on tape. It really helps put the whole thing in context.

I'm always hesitant to invest in these "books on tape" because sometimes, the reading so dry and boring, but the reading on The Message is strong, clear and interesting. The intro to Matthew even features Eugene Peterson himself, explaining a little background about how he wrote "The Message."

I am *not* an audio-based learner but more of a visual learner, yet my thoughts don't drift whilst listening to these CDs. I find it very easy to stay focused and really pay attention and soak up the meanings.

I've listened to these CDs for several years now and they never grow old. I love the layout and organizations of the tracks, the little case (very handy), the narrator's voice, the music and above all, I love listening to The Message.
