This version of the Bible is easy to listen to. Peterson's use of modern language and the narrators style bring new light onto passages I have heard since childhood. I hope that Audible will have the Old Testament Message soon!
By far the best modern language bible, brings the concepts and emotions of the time across in a easy to relate to style and feel
The narration is smooth and brings the characters to life, as if you were there
This version speaks to me in a way no other version has. A well-performed literary presentation, providing a balanced emotional expression of God's word.
I have read through the Bible before. I have usually used the NIV version, sometimes New King James Version, but this version was refreshing and easy to understand. I would highly recommend it whether you are new to the Bible or a seasoned Bible reader.
Biblical principles stand strong and everyday language helps you UNDERSTAND them so you can APPLY them. Great read. Will "read" often.
The intros are informative and not overwhelmingly long. The narrator has a lovely voice and reads with emotion. The translation is easy to understand.
