The Message 100

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.

I was very leery about getting this for review, at first I wasn't really sure what it was. (Was it a Bible or a devotional?) The answer is both! It has a short introduction to each of the 100 reading's then the reading. Its not in Biblical order, from what I can figure out it's in chronological order. ( Which the Bible isn't) I really love the way its written, basically in a poetry type of writing, made to be read like a novel instead of like a textbook.  Overall I am very impressed and would look into it for your personal Bible time but not as an all the time Bible to take to church since it is not in chronological order.
I received this for review through Tyndale House Publishers.
