The Message brings the Stories to Life!  Sep 4, 2008
I was looking for a Bible that i could understand. I have read stories in the bible but the language is very confusing. I was talking to my daughter one day and she told me the same thing. She would start to read the bible and put it down, because she would not understand it. I purchased The Message in comtemporay language and one day i was talking to my daughter and cousin, and i was amazed at myself. I was able to tell them all of the stories that i had read, just sitting and talking to them. They liked the stories and wanted to read my copy of the message. But i did not want to share mine. So... i went online and purchased a copy for each of them as a Gift!!!!The Message: Numbered Edition, Burgundy, Bonded Leather, The Bible In Contemporary Language
The Message Bible  Jan 11, 2007
This is very easy to understand! I love it! It was purchased because I was going to a Joyce Meyer Seminar--- it was wasy to use- even when the lights went down in the auditorium--
I continue to use it- for my spiritual guidance on a daily basis, it's a joy because of that, not to mention it's my favorite color, purple!
What a Shame  Jan 4, 2007
Not that putting the Scriptures into words that can be understood is a bad thing, but that as a singular goal in and of itself is shameful. This method detaches the Scriptures from what they have always existed as: divinely beautiful, heroic verse, majestic Prose, a treasure from heaven, something that surpasses everything that conforms to the zeitgeist. In other words, the Scriptures are meant to transcend the fads of our day and lift us outside time into the presence of God. All that this and many other modern translations do is constantly remind us that we are in the 21st century and surrounded by multitudes of T.V.-softened brains and Britney-Spears-listening pop fanatics. The Scriptures are meant not only to be understood, but to communicate the life and grace of Christ to us: something that exists outside of time and is therefore unchanged by it. I am sorry to see such putrescent translations (and music and television) pouring out of the Evangelical Community. I am sick and tired of it and this translation just goes too far. "Contemporary Language"? That sounds like an excuse to be irreverent, shallow, and philosophically deprived. It is translations like this that secretly make me wish the Scriptures simply remained in Latin.

I pray that the youth of our day, instead of trying to conform Christianity to their own idioms, will transform themselves (or rather let God transform them) to fit with what Christianity is and always has been: the glorious and ancient faith. Those two paths are incompatible and so one must be chosen over the other. I choose the latter; people who insist on such rubbish as this choose the former.

A piece of advice: do you want the Scriptures to have more meaning for you? Turn off the television and start reading books: not the modern rubbish, but good, classical literature from around the world. Not the Newspaper, not the internet, but Books. Read Virgil, C.S. Lewis, Chesterton, Homer, Dickens...that should be a good list to start you off. Also, turn off your Britney Spears and either keep five minutes of silence or listen to Bach, Tallis, Byrd, and even Beethoven if you must. Once you do that for a time, the Scriptures will take on entirely new meaning, and you won't have to ruin their Sacredness in the process.
The Message, Stone & Purple Cover  Nov 13, 2006
Love this translation! Price terrific --- only downside is the pages are so thin that it's sometimes difficult going through them. However, that said, would purchase it again, for myself or as a gift!
The Message Bible  Feb 27, 2006
I highly recommend this Bible because it is easy to understand in this contemporary language. The younger generation will greatly benefit from this Bible since they are so real and transparent. You will definitely love this Bible.
