Roberts/w WashingtonAge: Over 65Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5Nice little Paraphrased Bible.April 23, 2015Roberts/w WashingtonAge: Over 65Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is a nice little Bible paraphrased by Eugene Peterson. It is easy to read, and understand. The print is small, but clear, and the paper is a nice bright white. This would be a great little devotional Bible for daily scripture reading, along with a true translation, like a KING JAMES, NEW AMERICAN STANDARD, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION, or a NEW KING JAMES Bible.
Ask the HOLY SPIRIT to lead you in reading and study of Scripture, HE will open your understanding in a wonderful way.
May GOD bless you in your study of HIS WORD>

mountainsAlberta CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A great addition!November 4, 2013mountainsAlberta CanadaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4It 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.
