The message: the New Testament in contemporary language
The message preserves the authentic, earthy flavor and expressive character of the Bible in contemporary language. With more than six million copies sold, Eugene Peterson's unique paraphrase has opened up understanding and insight into God's Word. This new easy-to-carry format is great for carrying or for giving away. This new format brings the life-changing power of the New Testament into modern language with a preciseness that echoes the rhythm and idiom of the original Greek and Hebrew. The Message is consistently one of the top ten best-selling Bible versions listed in CBA's Marketplace. Great for new believers.
