The Message Remix book.

I love the message by Eugene H. Peterson. Although this is considered a paraphrase of the Good Book, Peterson is a remarkable Bible scholar and writer. You'll get fresh insights into what was really meant, and many ambiguous phrases are cleared up when they're put into the same sort of words that are spoken by you and me.

Love the size! can carry it everywhere I go. I got this version of the bible so that I can share with friends and family and for my bullet journaling obsession. It is super convenient when I'm short on time since it enables faster reading. It offers a section for themes/topics, maps, prophet's insight, and more. I love the way it's layed out, I find it easier to read. Only downside would be that the pages are fairly thin so when highlighting a passage it doesn't really go through the other side; however, it is quite visible from the other side of the page (I'll include some pictures as reference) I don't mind it at all (I'm currently using Japanese Midliner Highlighters). English is my second language so it becomes quite a challenge to fully understand KJV. My current version of the bible is RV1960 which would be the Spanish version of KJV. I tend to place The Message and RV1960 side by side to get a fuller, deeper understanding of God's word.

I have the hard back version of this Bible but wanted something that would lay flat on the table. The size of the Bible and font of the text is great. If you haven't read this version of the Bible don't wait any longer! It's literally like ready a regular book with all of the language updated.

Here is a sample of how the flow of the Bible is.

The Birth of Jesus

1.18-19 The birth of Jesus took place like this. His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to
Joseph. Before they came to the marriage bed, Joseph discovered she was pregnant. (It
was by the Holy Spirit, but he didn’t know that.) Joseph, chagrined but noble, determined
to take care of things quietly so Mary would not be disgraced.

1.20-23 While he was trying to figure a way out, he had a dream. God’s angel spoke in the
dream: “Joseph, son of David, don’t hesitate to get married. Mary’s pregnancy is Spirit conceived.
God’s Holy Spirit has made her pregnant. She will bring a son to birth,

and when she does, you, Joseph, will name him Jesus, ‘God saves’ because he will
save his people from their sins.” This would bring the prophet’s embryonic sermon to
full term:

Watch for this, a virgin will get pregnant and bear a son;
They will name him Immanuel (Hebrew for “God is with us”).

1.24-25 Then Joseph woke up. He did exactly what God’s angel commanded in the dream:
He married Mary. But he did not consummate the marriage until she had the baby. He
named the baby Jesus.
At their first exposure, many people seem to find The Message rather bizarre, saying it's too informal and "just a paraphrase." Most English paraphrases (The Way, for example), are re-workings of the King James Version. Peterson, however, paraphrases the original Hebrew and Greek texts, and more often than not he captures the sense of a phrase that might otherwise be gibberish to a 21st-century reader. Very occasionally the wording is so idiosyncratic that it causes giggles. Most of the time, however, Peterson brings new light to familiar passages, and you certainly pay attention in a new way! I witnessed a congregation listen to the NRSV passage from Proverbs about "the good wife," stony-faced and apparently unmoved. Another congregation (from the same parish) heard the same passage read from The Message and they were very engaged and amused. His translation of the New Testament epistles is truly a gift—if you don't understand the difference between Law and Grace after reading The Message, it will be a surprise. Even if you don't particularly like this version of the Bible—and I do; I use it both for my personal reading and for public proclamation—the introductions to each book are extraordinarily well written and helpful.
Although this is considered a paraphrase of the Good Book, Peterson is a remarkable Bible scholar and writer. He takes familiar, and not-so-familiar, verses and breathes new life into them by using the language of today. You'll get fresh insights into what was really meant, and many ambiguous phrases are cleared up when they're put into the same sort of words that are spoken by you and me. The Psalms, under Peterson's treatment, take on the clarity of contemporary, straight-to-the heart poetry. The Message's Proverbs speak to you with wise advice you can easily absorb. Then there are the historical accounts -- all are like reading news reports detailing the travels, and travails, of Abraham, Moses,Ruth, Esther, David, Jesus and the apostle Paul, among many others. All in all, Peterson's "The Message" is the most amazing retelling of the old, old story in new millennium expressions. As a former pastor turned seminary professor, Peterson helps us draw closer to the Lord as we read and consider each of the 66 books of Scripture. Don't let a naysayer try to talk you out of reading "The Message." This is one divine message that comes through loud and clear.
First off, I love this others have stated, it does read like a story. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who is thinking about or beginning to give their lives to God. It's easy to read, very simple but enjoyable and gets "The Message" across.

However, the book is small...honestly, I didn't pay attention to the dimensions when I purchased it and I just assumed it was a standard size book but it's on the small side-which is okay I guess. If you look at other variations of this book, the dimensions are around the same size...When you flip open the pages, the print is so small. I am able to read it, but I would prefer it to be a tad larger. {A large print version is available btw} Also, the pages are thin and very see through. I wouldn't feel okay high lighting or making notes inside this book. *I uploaded pictures so you can see what I'm talking about*

The bottom line is, yes I would recommend it based on the translation...perhaps some changes can be made to the pages in later versions. Happy reading!
