Review: The Message//Remix

The Message  RemixTitle: The Message//Remix

Author: Eugene H. Peterson

Series:

Pages: 1856

ISBN: 978-1-61747-949-6

Genre: Bible

Short Book Description:

The Message//REMIX features expanded introductions to each book of the Bible that explain the purpose of the book who wrote it and for whom it was written. The introductions help set the stage for the book and help you understand each book’s unique message.

Now in paperback for the very first time The Message//REMIX also has a unique verse-numbering system charts and maps and a topical guide for students. It makes a great graduation gift and is perfect to have on hand in Sunday school rooms.

My Thoughts:

I like the way this Bible is set up for the most part. I would have liked to have all the verses separated from each other instead of having them in paragraphs.

More of a reading Bible instead of a study Bible, it flows from verse to verse in story like format. I kind of like that and I kind of don’t since it doesn’t give you the impression of having separate verses.

All in all though I think I will find myself using it again and again. It’s the perfect size to carry in a purse/bag or if you don’t want to carry a regular sized Bible around.

Below are some verse differences between The Message//Remix and The King James Version

The Message//Remix

King James Version

This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting voice.

-John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in should not perish, but have ever lasting life.

-John 3:16

First this: God created the Heavens and the Earth—all you see, all you don’t see. Earth was a soup of nothingness, a bottomless emptiness, an inky blackness. God’s Spirit brooded like a bird above the watery abyss

-Genesis 1:1-2

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

-Genesis 1:1-2
