FaithfireAge: 35-44Gender: Female1 Stars Out Of 5The Bible in contemporary language?!March 11, 2015FaithfireAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1The 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.

DeB4 Stars Out Of 5The Message BibleJanuary 26, 2015DeBQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I 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.
