The Message is a reading Bible translated from the original Greek and Hebrew Scriptures by scholar, pastor, and poet Eugene Peterson. Peterson spent ten years working on The Message after teaching in seminary and preaching in churches for more than 30 years. It combines the authority of the Word of God with the cadence and energy of American English and has been thoroughly checked and approved by 20 biblical scholars. The Message is not intended to replace study Bibles; instead its purpose is to bring God’s Word to those who don’t understand the Bible or have lost interest in learning what it has to say. Passages that seem familiar will come alive. Read The Message today and rediscover what God’s Word can do in your life. Features

When the full version of The Message released, its contemporary language changed the way many people took in God's Word. Because some consumers asked for larger type, NavPress created large-print versions. Today readers have said they love the larger print but want a deluxe cover. And we listened.
