Reviews - What do our customers think?
|Essential to have on hand Dec 7, 2008|
|Peterson's paraphrase can be a little "folksy" in places, but essentially provides a rendition of the New Testament that is shed of spiritual fluff and the amazingly strong message of the writings comes through with clarity. I keep it on hand to read with other English translations and it gives a good perspective.|
|The Message Nov 25, 2008|
|The Message is great for reading and enjoying the scriptures. It makes a wonderful Christmas gift. Everyone I've shared it with has purchased copies to share with their friends and family.|
|Small Print May 11, 2007|
|Love the Bible, but the print was too small for my own comfort. I gave it away to a younger person.|
|Reads like a Novel! Jan 13, 2007|
|The Bible is God revealing Himself to mankind. He shows different aspects of Himself throughout His book. Reading The Message reveals WHY people were furious with Jesus. A fresh look at the same truths with the lenses of relationship to clear one's vision. A MUST READ, after all the Bible was never intended to be a textbook!|
|Resurrecting Christian Language Jan 26, 2006|
|The great Christian novelist Walker Percy once lamented that the words of Christianity had become devalued and almost meaningless: "The old words of grace are worn smooth as poker chips." |
Walker Percy, as always, was right. The story of Christ still carries the news of salvation, but if nobody can hear that story anymore because the words sound so worn out, there's not a lot of hope.
That's why I love Eugene Peterson's efforts in The Message. Our Christian language has become so old that it's nearly impossible for a large section of the culture to hear it. In The Message, however, Peterson is breaking down that barrier. He is contributing to the great, ongoing project of resurrecting the language of Christianity so that the word of God may live again.
