The Message Bible is written in modern-day language. It is fun to read and inspiring in its accessibility to Bible truths.
It helps make the Words of the Bible more personal, allowing God’s promises to get past my mind and down into my soul. With each reading, the cool breeze of understanding and peace gently sweep away the cobwebs of negative thoughts attempting to cloud my mind.
There are many formats, but The Message Canvas Bible is like a ready-made art journal, containing beautiful illustrations for coloring. Bonus! I love anything that adds fun and creativity to my day.
Also, check out The Message Devotional Bible. With notes and reflections by the author, his questions help you understand the context of what you are reading. The back cover encourages us to “Open the door between Scripture and your world.”
