When I was in college, a guy named Eugene Peterson translated some of the Bible (the new testament and Psalms) into modern-day language. I enjoy reading The Message in order to get a different perspective on passages that I’ve heard and read several times over the years.
Now anyone who would like their devotions tweaked a little bit more can read The Message 100. Broken down into 100 devotions, this book is written in chronological order. With insights into each passage, updated language, and Biblical passages combined to give a complete picture of the story, readers can study God’s word in a fresh and unique way.
While The Message 100 is a great devotional tool, it is a little difficult to find specific passages. This is not something you’ll want to take to church and follow along with during the sermon. This book is designed to be a study tool, to enhance your devotional experience, and perhaps point out some ideas and points you may not have known before.
With the holidays approaching, this might be a great gift for someone who plans to delve into God’s word in 2016.
