This review is from: The MESSAGE The New Testament in Contemporary Language (Paperback)
Read this version of the bible and understand it in the way that it would have been understood at the time.
This is not another wooden, two-dimensional "translation", but an accurate updating of the Bible as it was originally meant to be read. Hear the "street language" of spoken Greek transposed by a brilliant scholar into vivid, modern, and often amusing idiom.
