What”s the book about?
What moves you?
“God looked over everything he had made; it was so good, so very good!” (Genesis 1)
“It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life.” (Philippians 4)
“God was moved to compassion when he heard their groaning.” (Judges 2)
“Deeply moved, Jesus touched their eyes. They had their sight back that very instant.” (Matthew 20)
The Bible tells a story about moving―people moving from place to place, from good times to hard times to good times again. But more than anything, it’s a story of a God who is moved by love, and who moves―and who moves us―to make the world a better place.
Here in The Message 100 is the whole Bible―every single, moving word of it―laid out in 100 readings and arranged to reflect the unfolding story. Move through it at your own pace, and discover how God may be moving right there on the page, right here in your life.
THEMESSAGE100 is the whole Bible laid out in 100 readings.
In 100 Readings
The number “100” refers to the entire Bible, split up into 100 readings.
THEMESSAGE100 arranges the Bible in the order the events happened, book by book, to reflect the unfolding story.
Preserving Each Book’s Message
Chronological Bibles often break apart the books of the Bible and their messages get lost. With THEMESSAGE100, we’ve preserved every book’s message by keeping each book intact. The books are arranged chronologically, and still remain complete. Readers will experience the books of the Bible chronologically and also discover what the authors meant for us to hear—the message.
THEMESSAGE100 isn’t a daily reading Bible; it’s a deeper reading Bible. There’s no prescribed reading plan, so you can go at your own pace. THEMESSAGE100 is not a chore on your checklist. This is the Bible where you never fall behind!
Genre? Christian Bible
My opinion: 4 stars out of 5.
To have many translations of the Bible is a good thing, because I can track down the meaning of each story. Words are powerful tools and how they are applied will change the way I receive and understand.
The Message 100 Bible is not NKJ, but it does dive deep for devotional study purposes. The words describing the stories have the Medieval tone to it….at least for me.
Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
