NavPress Annotated Message Study Bible

The Message Study Bible combines the best-selling contemporary translation with personal insights from Peterson's lifetime of studying the Word.

When author and pastor Eugene H. Peterson created The Message, he took the colloquial quality of the ancient Hebrew and Greek originals and put it into the American English that people use in their workplaces and around the house. What makes The Message a unique translation of choice is it is written in verse-numbered paragraphs in a single-column format, making it like a novel.

Features
  • 640 notes from the writings and sermons of Eugene H. Peterson
  • Contemplative readings and prayers throughout the text
    Peterson's introductory essay "Reading the Scriptures"
  • A comprehensive bibliography of Peterson’s writings
    Peterson's biography and the complete list of translation consultants for The Message
  • Blank pages for personal notes and reflections
  • Written in American English
  • Verse-numbered, single-column format, making The Message a true reading Bible
  • Ribbon marker
  • Hardcover
  • 9.50" x 6.50" x 1.50"

gives you a fresh look at the scriptures but some of the modern verbage such as "bringing in casseroles" sort of jars you out of the holy moment.

Then Message Bible is more than a paraphrase, it Is a modern translation. It is easy to read, and in today’s modern language, it
helps you to understand Gods word and see how much we need to glean knowledge in the way we need to live, and the importance of inviting Jesus Christ into our heart, as our LORD, And SAVIOUR.
I do recommend having a regular translation to read and follow along with also, like the NEW KING JAMES, NIV, OR NEW AMERICAN STANDARD. All these are available here at CBD.
