Those familiar with any part of the Bible will recognize John 3:16, with a mind-altering difference. The words are fresh, new, and sound like the 21st century. That's because they are from The Message, a presentation of the Word of God crafted for a modern age. Eugene Peterson, translator and editor, learned from his years of teaching and pastoring that most people, through familiarity or frustration with the Bible, were missing the whole message of Scripture: the Word that God uses to create and save us, heal and bless us, judge and rule over us. So he set out to give us that word in language we use every day, a reading Bible that would enable the Word to penetrate our hearts and minds, transforming us day by day into the person God desires us to be.

The Message with a serious audio book flaw
Those who love The Message New Testament could truly enjoy this. BUT! A SERIOUS FLAW....there are only Chapter 1, Chapter 2...as titles...so you can't go to, let's say the book of Romans without guessing which chapter it is!! !
Nonetheless, for those who want an offline audio Message NT...it would work. There are added bonuses..a short intro to each chapter, Mr. Peterson's own introduction to this translation and a reader with a calm, soothing voice. A refreshing version of the Word of God!
