Description

Transform your quiet time.

Today's world is all about now - a fast-moving, high-speed, on-demand lifestyle, but has this pace changed the way we study the Bible? Our relationship with God is a journey, a walk where we grow closer to him each day. So it makes sense that reading and understanding Scripture is a continual experience, not just a moment. This innovative devotional is designed to change how you interact with God’s Word.

The Message // REMIX: Solo revolves around lectio divina, or “divine reading”, an ancient approach to exploring Scripture updated for today’s students. Each devotion delivers a unique, contemplative study that will encourage you to read, think, pray, and live. Uncover biblical wisdom and revelations as you learn to read without the typical limitations that often cut Bible reading short. Immerse yourself in the passage as you place yourself in the story or meditate on words and phrases.

Connect with him through listening prayer and praise as you encounter new ways to communicate with God. Rest, reflect, or act as you discover how to take the Word with you throughout the day. Features include an introduction to the lectio divina style of study, numbered devotions so you can start on any day of the year, and a time of rest for every seventh day.

  • (5/5)
    Another version of the bible but in regular, plain language. Peterson did a good job I think. It translates well and makes things an easy read for those who aren't used to other versions or hate the King James.

    THIS BOOK IS WRITTEN BY A CHURCH PASTOR IN THE USA AND IS A BEAUTIFUL AND CLEAR RENDITION OF A CLASSIC
  • (5/5)
    The Bible is many-layered, with treasure at each level. I like the freshness of this translation.
  • (5/5)
    This translation of the Bible is clearly a paraphrase, but as such, it is quite satisfying. I've looked up a few favorite verses to see how Eugene Peterson handles them, and this is what I found.Hebrews 11:1. Peterson adds a lot of words ot Now faith is the substance of things hope for.... His translation is: "The fundamental fact of existence is that this trust in God, this faith, is the firm foundation under everything that makes life worth living. It's our handle on what we can't see." I think he captured the essence of the Greek and realized that this verse, which is a kind of mediation piece, cannot be rendered succinctly. But he stays on tract, particularly with the words, firm foundation under.Matthews5:2-9 (Beatitudes). Peterson starts them off with "You're blessed when", not the solemnity of "Blessed are" (maybe overly solemn in English), but stays away from the falsity of "Happy are". The translations here ar quirky, and you can take of leave them, and perhaps you shold go back to a standard text to see the words that roll around in most people's minds, but I still Peterson is worth a read here.Psalm 95 (Venite). This a joyous reading version, I am not sure this is really singable. I grew up with the sung Venite, so I am in a mixed response here, rejoicing inwardly with some of his wording, but I am not sure I want to put them out with melody and meter.John 1:1- Peterson's words are a little more out there, but he does capture uch of the parallel structure of the gospel writer, so he retains the message and the eeling that goes with the message.Philippians 2. Peterson doesn't ty to catch the rhythm of the original, but t is still worth the reading of it.I Thessalonians. I think Peterson captures the flow of Paul's pity summary of how Christians qhould act quite well.

    Contemporary translation
  • (2/5)
    This is not the Bible. It's one man's attempt to make the Bible more accessible. It can be a useful tool to help understand scripture, and it can also obscure things. One example: The Lord's Prayer states "Give us this day our daily bread" which has come to have a depth of meaning that goes beyond the simple phrase. Peterson's translation "give us three square meals" sounds far more dated (who refers to square meals any longer) than the earlier translations, and fails to give the depth of those translations as well. If you buy this, make sure it's not the only version you own.

    Not really a study Bible, but great for just shucking God's Word down to something one needs to hear so much of the time.
