Product Description

The Message is a reading Bible translated from the original Greek and Hebrew Scriptures by scholar, pastor, and poet Eugene Peterson. Peterson spent ten years working on The Message after teaching in seminary and preaching in churches for more than 30 years. It combines the authority of the Word of God with the cadence and energy of American English and has been thoroughly checked and approved by 20 biblical scholars.
The Message is not intended to replace study Bibles; instead its purpose is to bring God’s Word to those who don’t understand the Bible or have lost interest in learning what it has to say. Passages that seem familiar will come alive. Read The Message today and rediscover what God’s Word can do in your life.

Publisher's Description

When the full version of The Message released, its contemporary language changed the way many people took in God’s Word. Because some consumers asked for larger type, NavPress created large-print versions. Today, readers have said they love the larger print but want a deluxe cover. And we listened. Introducing The Message Large Print Premium Leather. With the same everyday wording that made The Message wildly popular and in an eye-pleasing 12.5 point type size, this Bible has a carefully made cover of genuine calfskin black leather.

    This review was written for The Message Bible: Large Print Edition.
    The message is not a Bible........ it is one man's suspect commentary on it, sure it's easy to read but the content is what we need to focus on. The message is a very poor paraphrase at best; some have called it heretical and I am inclined to agree. It is marketed to young people and new Christians who are the most impressionable in the faith . When you compare the message to other versions you see the dangerous omissions and insertions. such as Romans 8:35, 1 Timothy 1:10 or Romans 1:26-27. When you compare KJV, NIV and the message side by side you see the problem. I am not questioning the author's sincerity or making any attack on him personally but when you choose to take on the task of paraphrasing God's word you must handle with extreme care. John 10:30 "I and the Father are one". The message states "I and the Father are one in heart and mind". This brings a different meaning and context to it. Matthew 5:5 "Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth" The message says "You are truly blessed when you are content with just who you are no more, no less". This is a totally un-Biblical statement and has nothing to do with the wider context of what Jesus was saying. This could be read be happy with who you are there is no need to seek to change. This was definitely not the premise of the beatitudes. My advice stay away from the message. Instead invest in the range of tools available to interpret the word of God such as a good Bible dictionary and Bible commentary and a good Bible.... The message is not it.

    I like The Message - but I would not want to give up my "real" Bible. This one is fun to read and get a different view (all most like slang - or modern lingo). But I do enjoy reading it.
