The Message // REMIX 2.0, Softcover: The Bible in Contemporary Language
This product is easy to read.
I bought this product for my daughter-in-law because she is not very good at reading and understanding difficult texts. She was thrilled to have a copy of the Bible that she could read and understand..

A great addition!
It was a treat to sit down and read through scripture as if it were a story book. I think The Message:Remix has earned a permanent place in my daily devotions!
I found the language easy to process and very visual. It added such impact and imagery to my personal bible study time.
I love the compact size and the pleasing wood surface cover. I like how the scripture references were in the side margins instead of within the actual text. This helps the words to flow more like a story.
However I found the pages far too thin and difficult to turn. The words from the back side of the page were distractedly obvious on the page I was reading.
At the beginning of each book of the Bible there is an introductory page. I found these informative and enlightening. Peterson is a Pastor and his pastor-heart is found on every page but especially in the introductions. Each one I read felt like sitting in a pew listening to a great reflection in a sermon. (Hopefully that doesn't sound boring to you - that is not my intention.)
One last comment is that The Message: Remix is intended for a Youth market. From the sections I read I found it useful and applicable to all ages.

This is a very good translation
Of course the Bible is great in any translation. I would only say that I wish that the printing was larger. Seems very small print to me, for anyone. Thank you

The pages were thinner than expected. Very transparent. Other than that a good buy!
