Reviews - What do our customers think?
A well translated book  Mar 11, 2008
This is the best translation of Psalms, from the Kings English (of King James and William Shakespear's era) to modern English as how it is written and spoke today.

You read it , understand the message and it stays with you.
 
Incredible  Sep 13, 2007
This small and convenient edition fits in your purse, the console of a car, or just about anywhere. I cannot tell you what comfort these words brought to me during a very difficult period of my life in 2005. So often, I turn to this when I am anxious, afraid, depressed or just in need of encouragement. This addition makes the Psalms so real and personal and enables you to know that even in Bible times, people experienced the same hurts, fears and emotions that we do. I also love the fact that King David of Israel wrote most of these and how God used him in spite of all his imperfections. This gives me hope that He can use me too! :-)
 
The Highlight of Peterson's Project  Sep 30, 2006
I have never been a big fan of the Message translation of (commentary on) the Scriptures. As an X-er it seemed dated to me right off the press and I just didn't love what he did with some of my favorite texts. But when I saw the Peterson's attempt at the Psalms in a thrift store ($1) at the same time I was reading (and enjoying) his `Christ Plays in 10,000 places,' I decided to pick it up. Bottom line: It would have been worth more than full price. Peterson's poetic style fits the Psalms much better than the narrative of the Gospels/Acts or Paul's analytical approach. The words he chooses to render the stanzas of canonical worship tug at my soul.
 
A refreshing version to read!  Jun 3, 2000
From the bible scholar to the beginner this book has a refreshing way of bringing the bible into personal perspective. The author has brought the bible to life in a very practical way! I recommend this book to those who have to date considered the bible to be boring and of no practical use. I recommend this book to the student of the bible who wants more than just words on a page! I recommend this book to the person who uses the bible on a daily basis to bring newness to their bible time. I recommend this book!
