For someone concretely atheist, I must admit that if anyone were to want to understand the gist of the Christian bible in a tolerable way, this would be it I got my hands on this book thanks to the well intentioned aunt of a boyfriend during hi
My second time through this version of the New Testament It is easy reading and am now reading The Message Bible by Eugene Peterson I ve learned that to really gain insight into The Word, you keep rereading the Bible, whatever version you re comfortable with As
I love to read The Message, OT and NT, for my daily Scripture reading It is a paraphrase, and I would always confirm the meaning with ESV, Greek NT, etc before teaching a passage However, I love to read The Message. The message is not only The Word of God, it also brings lots of laughs Like Jesus saying shut up Haha The Good Book has been enshrined in its King James version so long that, for most of my life, every time I heard quotations from the Bible, the language sounded medieval a bit stilted, though definitely poetic The poetry of the King James edition, a preacher friend once told me, is what he associates with the Bible But that same man went and bought me this edition, which has been translated into the idiom of our day, in order to show both of us something important about the Good Book It s also a big, almost unwieldy collection of stories, letters, plainspoken poetry, and advice for how to live right This edition performs a bit of a magic trick, bringing ancient scriptures closer to our contemporary context In the transition, plenty is gained but a few things are lost, too.Personally, I am less than devout I pray as often as I need, go to church almost never, and hold to a or less vague orthodoxy The God of Peterson s translation of the New Testament, however, seems not to mind what set of beliefs I affirm as much as how I live in the world The Psalms read like the street prayers of wise but uneducated citizens expressing devotion to God, or asking for mercy, or decrying injustice Reading their words had the effect of putting their prayers into my own mind, so that eventually I felt the

Truly love Peterson s creative, insightful translation Masterful, and imminently helpful Recommended to all I have read it again and again, and will continue to do so.It s not a word for word translation, wasn t intended to be, and doesn t need to be But when you need a break from standard Bible versions, or a fresh approach to the Bible for any reason, The Message can be just the thing It has reignited my love of the Bible time and
Sometimes called a paraphrase than a translation, Peterson s The Message has none of the omissions and other problems that plague true paraphrases like The Living Bible I ve read elsewhere that The Message is actually superior to many pure translation Bibles in its fidelity to the original Greek and Hebrew In my own reading, I ve found it compares favorably with the New King James Version, a
I m sorry if this upsets people that s not my intention but the fact of the matter is that a serious look into The Message reveals some devastating changes to the original meaning of the scriptures This takes ad lib ing to a whole new level and the fear of God should at least make othe
