Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jonathan | 2/20/2014

    " Absolutely fantastic. The Word of God in contemporary language without losing the true import or meaning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marian Brown | 2/14/2014

    " I love this translation of the Bible. It is refreshing and invigorating to read it from a different perspective written by a great Bible teacher and scholar. I love the fact that he is trying to reach out to everyone in everyday language. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blaise Nicoletti | 2/12/2014

    " I started with a Ryrie Study Bible and that is a great Bible. The Message by Eugene Peterson has been a great study Bible as well and I can appreciate his desire to bring out or to help bring out the true "tone" and depth of emotion from what was being said and taught by Jesus and by His disciples. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Phileo Truth | 2/11/2014

    " This translation of the Bible renders the text unrecognizable to any word-for-word and most thought-for-thought translations. In its efforts to be conversational, the language is bastardized. It is a sad commentary on the state of the church that so many in Christendom teach from this Bible in the general assembly. This translation should have been shelved. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda Browning | 2/2/2014

    " This is by far the best translation of the Bible for simply reading. The modern language and writing simplifies many messages of the Bible. I would recommend this to anyone, particularly teens and new believers who are just learning "The Message". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb Harris | 1/31/2014

    " okay, how does one rate the Bible? Anyway, the message remix is a really excellent version to read if you wqnt to read straight through...not use it as a study bible. I used it this year to read start to finish in a year and i comprehended so much more in this modern format. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jill | 1/26/2014

    " AMMMMMMMazing. engages my 5 and 6 year old really well with the devotional stuff at the end. they like the pics a ton, too - the illustrations encourage questions, but really, the questions and activities at the end of each story MAKE this little devotional Bible paraphrase for kids. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shawn | 1/15/2014

    " I read this along side the NRSV (New Revised Standard Version). It is excellent! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Monica | 1/12/2014

    " I know many people loved the way he "translated" the bible into modern day words. I didn't like it. It felt like I was reading someone else's interpretation and I didn't like the way he put things. :( "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 1/5/2014

    " Fast, easy-to-read and understand. Great complement to other versions of the Bible. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Kibbe | 1/3/2014

    " Wonderful opportunity and learning to read through the entire Bible in one year. The Message really made that possible with its contemporary, easy to understand language. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 12/29/2013

    " Enjoyable paraphrase of the Bible. Some areas are stronger than others - the Psalms tend to read like bad 60's poetry. But a great take on the Good Book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bryan | 12/21/2013

    " I absolutely love listening to this paraphrase of the Bible. I love listening to whole books at a time. Such flowing, powerful prose. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andy | 11/19/2013

    " This is the perfect Bible for those who've always wanted to read it, but were either intimidated by it or couldn't get past the language (especially the KJ version). Very readable, down-to-earth language that does a pretty good job of capturing the essence of the Bible. A great place to start. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kenny | 11/18/2013

    " not always precise. but it's always a fresh breath/different take on the Word. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christian | 11/11/2013

    " This will forever be in my currently-reading list for as long as I live! lol! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cathy | 9/8/2013

    " best version of the bible!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robbie Bashore | 8/28/2013

    " Okay, so I can't really say I've read this whole book. I enjoy reading the contemporary language, and I think it broadens and deepens my understanding of passages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joash Jacob | 8/14/2013

    " It is really easy to follow and can hold your attention. It is better than a feature length movie and it will give you more goosebumps as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley Reynolds | 7/26/2013

    " I enjoyed it; I haven't ever read the whole Bible before this, it simplified things to a point that made them easier to understand in a contemporary way... which, I guess that was the point. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Beth | 7/18/2013

    " I read this one last year and I'll tell ya, I did not like some of the wording used. You could tell this author was very aged due to some of the ways he worded things and I just couldn't relate. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shelley23 | 4/4/2013

    " I love to use my message bible as a reference when I don't "get it" in the KJV. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ross Staadecker | 5/22/2012

    " Excellent, contemporary, version of the Bible. Some may argue that it is taken out of context, but in my belief it simply a layman's language of comprehension. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jujujong | 4/27/2012

    " Always reading this one. Brings the Bible into toady's terms. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 12/1/2011

    " I love this version of the Bible. Written for his grandson, Eugene Peterson writes this paraphrase in such an easy to understand manner. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Kaess | 8/22/2011

    " Read this as an audiobook over the past year for my devotions. Excellent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob Mendelsohn | 7/18/2011

    " It's not a book to study, that is, this version, but it's a great read. "
