God’s Word was meant to be read and understood. It was first written in
the language of the people—of fishermen, shopkeepers, and carpenters.
The Message gets back to that: You can read it and understand it.
The Online Bible edition of The Message contains verse
numbers that will help you study and find favorite passages. Or you can
just read it like a book and let the narrative impact you. After all, it
is God’s story, with its heroes and villains, conflicts and resolutions.
Either way, it’s God’s Word—the Truth—in a user-friendly form.
Use The Message as an alternate version together with another
Bible version and synchronise scrolling.
The Message is great for:
- Reading devotionally
- Teaching or preaching
- Helping new believers
- Reviving interest in God's Word
- Bringing clarity and new insight to familiar passages
With The Message, Eugene Peterson’s best-selling paraphrase of the
Bible, you can join the millions of readers who have experienced God’s
Word in the form of a personal message.
Enthusiasm for The Message has boosted its popularity as the most
reader-friendly Bible available today. Every book of Scripture unfolds
like a page-turner you can’t put down! With no distracting verse numbers
or stiff, formal language, passages you’ve read many times before will
come alive, revealing the vibrant energy of God’s Word.
"I hope that when readers find the poetry, the stories, the prayers, the
songs in this Book in their language—the sort of language in which it was
written—they will read it from cover to cover, nonstop" says
