    THE NEW TESTAMENT WITH PSALMS AND PROVERBS 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 Bible, you're about to make a surprising discovery. One of the most striking features of the Bible 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of the day--the idiom of the playground and marketplace, not the formal, lofty language of government decrees and historical documents.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 New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs brings out the expressive, earthy flavor of the original biblical text. 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 relevance and directness that motivated its original readers to change the course of history many centuries ago.
