it was amazing
bookshelves: currently-reading, spiritual, non-fiction

I love the fresh contemporary way that Peterson has paraphrased the Bible. I have read the Bible all the way through in other versions, but with THE MESSAGE, I am seeing things I have never seen before. The message comes through loud and CLEAR. Peterson's introductions to each book of the Bible (MESSAGE) are wonderful.

When you get your hands on this book, check out this familiar passage: Matthew 11:28-30. The language is beautiful!
