It took him a full 10 years to complete. He worked not from any English text but from the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek manuscripts, to guarantee authenticity. At the same time, his ear was always tuned to the cadence and energy of contemporary English.
Peterson and his wife, Jan, now live in his native Montana. They are the parents of three and the grandparents of six.
Roberts/w WashingtonAge: Over 65Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Very easy to read, and understand version of the Bible.May 4, 2016Roberts/w WashingtonAge: Over 65Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a well made, and easy to read Bible. The print is large, and easy on the eyes. The binding is sewn, and lays flat. I enjoy this Bible very much, but would also use a trusted version for comparison. When ever you study GODS WORD, ask HIS SPIRIT to guide you with understanding.
This is a very good value from our friends at CBD.
May GOD Bless, and guide you in your study of HIS WORD.
Valerie E Strong5 Stars Out Of 5Another good tool for study.April 25, 2016Valerie E StrongQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Good addition to your bible study especially for the begginner bible student to help break the scripture down in "todays' language". I found it very useful with my bible study class. I already recommended it to a friend and she ordered one and feels the same way!
Judy1 Stars Out Of 5The Message BibleApril 8, 2016JudyQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1I thought it was awful. It was a mockery to the inspired word of God. I give it no rating because it does not deserve one. I see no value to it and I thought of throwing it in the trash.

Annie2 Stars Out Of 5It's not really a BibleNovember 27, 2015AnnieQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 1It's a hardback book that is made like a hardback book, so I'd say its quality is normal/average. It's the content that bothers me. I've found that I really don't read its New Testament stories because it doesn't really say what the Bible says. I guess you'd call it an allegory. It's like reading Aesop's Fables: the stories are beneficial but ..... . I'd say it's fine for reading the Old Testament though.
Q: In the Message Bible are Jesus's words in red
Jesus' words are not in red in this edition.
