Great Bible for devotional reading.
August 28, 2014
I really love The Message for devotional reading. Peterson's grasp of the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek languages allows him to present the good news in a gritty, contemporary language that grabs you and won't let you go. I struggle with whether this is a paraphrase or a translation, but, regardless, it hits home. Don't try to use this as a study bible; for that I recommend the NASB or ESV but, for devotional reading it just doesn't get any better than this.
