The Message: Paperback, Lavender Embossed

Full Product Description

Eugene Peterson explains what motivated him to write 'The Message': 'While I was teaching a class on Galatians, I began to realise that the adults in my class weren't feeling the vitality and directness that I sensed as I read and studied the New Testament in its original Greek.

Writing straight from the original text, I began to attempt to bring into English the rhythms and idioms of the original language. I knew that the early readers of the New Testament were captured and engaged by these writings and I wanted my congregation to be impacted in the same way. I hoped to bring the New Testament to life for two different types of people: those who hadn't read the Bible because it seemed too distant and irrelevant and those who had read the Bible so much that it had become 'old hat.'

Since this initial idea, Peterson has brought the whole Bible into contemporary language, honing his paraphrase to enthuse the reader, communicating God's Word effectively.

This lavender leather-look Bible contains that entire work. Easy to read and understand, looks great in purple: 'The Message'.
