  1. I had been an angry Christian, furious with god and hypocrisy in the church Tucked tail and went the new age route Took endless baths in love and light, but knew I was missing grace to go deeper Lead to the work of Richard Rohr, he thru the Master s hand, showed me I was wrong He, Richard, also pointed me to The Message As a poet myself, THIS version of the bible puts me at the scene, smelling the sweat, feeling the dust, hearing the cadence of the Masters loving, humourous, gentle voice as he s [...]


  2. After many years of reading through the KJV each year, I have begun interspersing other versions on occasion For reading straight through the Bible, this is an easy read No claim is made that this is the most accurate translation of words and phrases, but rather the writer tries to use 21st century language to translate the thoughts and phrases expressed in the Word As long as you understand that, you can enjoy the flow of the text For one example, in Ex 26 36, the KJV says And thou shalt make a [...]


  3. I like the message because it helps with understanding Gods word by giving a clearer picture of understanding the word of God.


  4. When I read The Message, I often find myself smiling, laughing, or weeping I love to read in in parallel columns with another, traditional translation That way I can compare the meanings I derive from both.Take John 1 14In the KJV we read, And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, The Message reads, The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighborhood I don t know why that makes me smile But my imagination is activated Image the Son of God living in the next street over Why Eu [...]


  5. We have read and studied the King James version pretty much all of our lives I have also read in other versionse Phillips New Testament and some study of the NIV as well and in the 60 s the New English Bible So I bought this out of curiosity about what a colloquial American English Bible might be like For me the results run the gamut from ridiculous too delightful But for any given passage or chapter one cannot rely, ahead of time, where on that spectrum the results may be.I guess for us my fami [...]


  6. Large but not uncomfortable Bible Very readable font for these old eyes Don t even need my reading glasses Good line spacing not all bunched together The version itself is for my devotional reading or bedtime reading For serious Bible study, I would recommend this as supplemental reading to see a fresh perspective, but not by itself for study alone It s great to be read like a novel For serious study, I have several study Bibles in the King James, NASB, NLT, NIV,ESV, RSV AND ASB.For a devotional [...]


  7. I ve been seeing a lot of Christian Daily devotional s quoting from The Message lately Although I wasn t sure about some of the quotes, I thought I d give the full book a read.At first I was quite impressed The language used can be a bit cringeworthy at times it comes across like a dad trying to sound down there with the kids but even so, it cracked along nicely The historical books Genesis to Esther were much easier to follow than the accurate translations, although I kept a regular NIV to hand [...]


  8. Obviously, the Bible is an important book Reading it in normal English is much easier than reading it in ancient English, but the message is the same Easier likely to read and understand.The content of the Bible is huge, so paper versions are either big heavy expensive or small font thin paper The Kindle overcomes all these problems.It tells us how to live, why to live that way, and offers an insight into the history of the place now known as Israel There is something in it
