Item Description...
For those who've never read the Bible and for those who've read it too much. Lacey's "dangerously real" retelling of Scripture vividly demonstrates that the Bible is packed full of stories, poems, and images that resonate with the big issues of today. This fresh paraphrase-come-running-commentary brings the text alive: Bible stories are retold as mini blockbusters; psalms as song lyrics; epistles as emails; Revelation as seen through a virtual reality headset. Out with stale religious terms, here's a "Bible" which talks today's language_gritty, earthy, and witty. Enough starting at Genesis with good intentions and getting lost in Leviticus-Lacey succeeds in revitalizing a classic work by focusing on the big picture: fast-forwarding through the "slow-moving" bits with pace, passion, and energy to make the Bible a page turner. Lacey's tour de force was created during a remarkable personal journey through terminal cancer: the stuff Bible stories are made of. This life-experience injects Lacey's take on Scripture with authenticity and authority_resonating with Bible characters who also wrestled with the big questions. Purist alert: This is not THE Bible (capital B) but it might just get you reaching for one.

cool  Apr 25, 2008
I like this book, but I wish it had all the books in it and not left portions of scripture out. Maybe a version 2?
the word on the street  Mar 15, 2008
the word on the street

Eye-opening, very useful in developing dramatizations. Gives more understanding of the Bible from a human standpoint.
bible with a small b  Dec 28, 2007
The Word on the Street is a Paraphrase of the Big B. Lacey using lyrics, poems, and the written word, giving new understanding to some of the writings of The Bible. This is a great reference for helping those that are intimidated by the many versions of the Bible. One will laugh, one will cry, one may find new meaning and understanding. Give it a try!
Unique  Apr 1, 2007
Quite a unique paraphrase of the Holy Bible. Rob Lacey does do an excellent job at capturing the minds of post-moderns who may have never read the Bible or young adults who may have never understood the story of God. This gives a clear picture as to the story, just don't rely on it for the details.
excellent!  Mar 8, 2007
i highly recommend this "Bible" to anyone who longs to get into the Word of God but longs for a version in our current tongue. This bible is great for adding new life to stories we've heard over and over;however, it shouldn't be replaced for the real Bible. Buy it!!!
