Helps to bring the Bible alive,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Message Bible: Complete Bible (MP3 CD)
The object of this paraphrase is to make understanding the message of the bible more accessible. It is not a substitute for a proper biblical translation, but it works excellently to help bring the Bible alive, and I personally love the helpful introductions to each book of the Bible. I listen to it in the car, and want to listen to the whole Bible,and even the difficult legalistic old testament books of Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy are easier to listen to and follow with this "version". Very good value in all senses. My version does however seem to miss out from Psalm 105 to the end of Song of Solomon.
