Reviews - What do customers think about Bktrax-Disc-Word On The Street (Abridged)?

excellent!  Mar 8, 2007
i highly recommend this "Bible" to anyone who longs to get into the Word of God but longs for a version in our current tongue. This bible is great for adding new life to stories we've heard over and over;however, it shouldn't be replaced for the real Bible. Buy it!!!
Clarity  Jan 8, 2007
I bought this bible for a friend as a Christmas gift, and he has been a Christen for years. In fact, he was the one that turned me on to word on the street. I have to be quite honest; this book is a bit of a head trip. I wasn't sure about it, until I started reading it to see what it was about and to be quite honest, it helped me understand the "regular" King James version of the bible better-as I get lost in the were for ought thou and etc language..... I am Christen woman and have been for a while, but I never could really wrap my head around the verses in some of the bibles on the market, because I could not connect the language.

I plan to buy a copy for myself this month. I am able to communicate with my teen daughter in a way about the bible that she gets. She is at the age of questioning god so this book is another tool that I will use to communicate with her.

Lastly, I have been reading some of the reviewers here and both bibles say - judge not least yet be judged for man shall be judged by the measure in which he judges. two cents

Can't I give it ZERO!!!  Dec 18, 2006
This is horrible. I thought it was a joke!! It blashemes God's word.
Please don't buy this. I would say more but I think everone who has rated this low has already made the point. If this keeps one person from buying this my job is done.
Word on the Street: Please take off the Street and away from our Churches  Apr 26, 2006
If I've ever read anything in my life more heinous than Word on the Street, I would have jumped out a window. I don't understand how anyone in their right mind could ever consider Word on the Street a positive contribution to evangelical Christianity. It actually works against the spread of the Gospel because it butchers, waters down, demoralizes and utterly stupefies the Word of God in every way, shape and form. The Word of God was written the way it was for a reason. The evangelical church needs to stop inventing ways of compromising on the truth and power of the gospel and calling it "relevant." Relevant has nothing to do with making the gospel a bunch of foolishness and nonsense that Word on the Street so quintessentially epitomizes. If you actually want to learn about the Truth concerning Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father, don't buy the Word on the Street, because it won't take you toward Him, but rather away. Go buy a real translation, one that is faithful to God's original Word, like the English Standard Version or the New American Standard, or even the NIV. That's all I have to say to the evangelical community about this not-worth-publication piece of literature that has no positive contribution to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and its spread around the world.

PS - "Well what about unchurched people or those who are not familiar with the Bible?" Answer: Don't give them something that takes them even further away from the integrity of God's Word! You're robbing them of the Truth if you think that Word on the Street or any other gospel compromising, truth watering down paraphrase is going to help them in their journey toward the truth. Give them a decent translation and guide them along in the RIGHT path of understanding of what God is saying to us today.

PSS - I am not a fundamentalist, Bible-thumping, hyper-emotional Christian. I am just a person who is advocating for a return to being faithful to God's Word and what it stands for. I do not apologize, but the Word on the Street fails on all of these grounds and must be categorized as a false rendering of the Good News of Jesus Christ. It must be systematically rejected in all Evangelical circles, or we will continue to drift toward the snare and pit of worthless Christianity.


Of COURSE The Elders Hate It - It's Progressive  Dec 31, 2005
Reading these back-and-forth reviews, I can only snicker. It seems that those who aren't saved will see the most benefit in this paraphrase. Yeah, it's not an actual translation, and yeah, it takes some risque leaps to reach it's reader. It "rocks the boat" as it were. As I read the previous reviews it struck me that the ones who hate it are most guilty of the Laodicea address in Revelation. Seems to me all Jesus himself did was rock the boat. It also strikes me that the very people who hate this parphrase do so because of their lack of ability to be zealous Christians. Hey! Do whatever it takes to reach people! Stop protesting every time something new comes along. Go with it. Otherwise you're standing still and in no way effective in these times that demand every effort possible. THAT being said:

This is the bible re-written the way our culture today talks. Period. Here's my favorite verse:

"Timothy 3:1-6 You must understand this: In the last days there will be violent periods of time. People will be selfish and love money. They will brag, be arrogant, and use abusive language. They will curse their parents, show no gratitude, have no respect for what is holy, and lack normal affection for their families. They will refuse to make peace with anyone. They will be slanderous, lack self-control, be brutal, and have no love for what is good. They will be traitors. They will be reckless and conceited. They will love pleasure rather than God. They will appear to have a godly life, but they will not let its power change them. Stay away from such people. Some of these men go into homes and mislead weak-minded women who are burdened with sins and led by all kinds of desires."

That's from "God's Word" translation, and although not bad, still reads like a bible. Which for someone considering God for the first time, may be a bit over-whelming. Here's Rob Lacey's re-write:

"Don't say I didn't warn you: Before it all gets wrapped up, there'll be some ugly stuff going around. People will have multiple love affairs, with themselves, with money... They'll be cocky, arrogant, mouthy. They'll ignore their parents. "Thanks" won't be in their vocab. They'll fit it in with the rest of the hate-culture. They'll only bother to talk if it's malicious. They'll only get off their backsides for a good scrap. Good things give them the creeps; they'll jump ship when it suits them; they do whatever when it suits them and they're so full of themselves they can't take any criticism on board. They'll love the next high more than God. They'll go through motions of relgion, but it'll be unplugged - God's power will be off at the mains. Don't waste your time on them."

If this doesn't make things CLEAR, nothing will. Rob cuts out the noise of endless litanys designed to connect the dots between Jesus and David and other lineage tirads. He also cuts out antiquated - page after page - Old Testament Rules that were fulfilled by Christ in the New Testament and summarizes them (and when he does so, notes that it is his doing as if the bold print isn't enough).

Rob took every precaution to not only write this book as if he were addressing someone who had never read the bible before, but to ensure that they new bits and pieces had been omitted and for more info they should refer to the MASTER EDITION.

As for those of you offended? Well, the Pharisees were CONSTANTLY offended by Jesus who hung out with tax collectors and whores. And probably WOULD have referenced "Strip Poker" had it been culturally relative.
