Written in the rhythms and idiom of contemporary language--the way you'd talk with friends, write a letter, or discuss politics at the office--The Message brings with it the flavor of the original Greek, which is surprisingly informal. Peterson--a prolific poet, author, and pastor--provides in this unique translation a fresh, contemporary look at an all-time bestseller.

From the Back Cover:

THE NEW TESTAMENT LIKE YOU’VE NEVER READ IT BEFORE. It is commonly assumed that a book dealing with a holy God should sound elevated, stately, and ceremonial. If this is how you’ve always viewed the New Testament, you’re about to make a surprising discovery. One of the most striking features of the New Testament is that it was written in the street language of the day––the idiom of the playground and marketplace, not the formal, lofty language of government decrees and historical documents. Written in the rhythms and idiom of contemporary language––the way you’d talk with friends, write a letter, or discuss politics––The Message brings out the expressive, earthy flavor of the New Testament. Which means that, whether you’ve been reading the Bible for years or are exploring it for the first time, The Message will startle and surprise you. And it will allow you to experience firsthand the same power and directness that motivated its original readers to change the course of history many centuries ago.
