Convenient  Sep 13, 2007
I LOVE this small book. It fits perfectly in the console of my car. When I am at a long stop light, stuck in Atlanta traffic, or sitting in carpool I can take this out and gain wisdom while I wait. Also, I love giving these to people in times of need or when they need wisdom about a situation. You'll love it too!
The Complete Guide to the Book of Proverbs is better.  Jan 4, 2000
The Message is a new translation of Proverbs (1995) that favors modern slang and often replaces original proverbs with a new proverb. Proverb 1.17 "When a bird sees a trap being set, it stays away" becomes 'Nobody robs a bank with everyone watching". Proverb 1:31 "They shall eat the fruit of their own way" is rendered "Well, you've made your bed-now lie in it." In Proverbs 31.14 when the wife goes shopping she no longer brings home "food" but rather "exotic surprises". If you would like to understand Proverbs better but would like better accuracy read THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO THE BOOK OF PROVERBS by Cody Jones. Six authoritative translations are laid out in parallel to aid comparison and understanding. There is also an in-depth commentary that is easy to read with many illustrations and photos to give you a sense of the culture of the time.
Excellent advice for everyday living, EASY to understand  Aug 19, 1999
Eugene Petersons interpretation of Proverbs makes for practical wise living, just as the author (God) had intended. It would be good advice if everyone on the planet would pick it up and read just one chapter per day for a healthy mind and a new outlook on life. No more excuses that say "I can't understand the bible". Any of Petersons versions take that excuse away but especially this rendition of the Proverbs. AN EXCELLENT READ. Can't say it enough!! Get it and read it EVERYDAY - You'll be the wiser for it.
VERY EASY TO READ.  Nov 27, 1996
