Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0879464941, Paperback)

Now for the first time and exclusively from ACTA Publications, The Message® features the deuteroncanonical books translated by William Griffin in The Message®: Catholic/Ecumenical Edition. Including the books of Judith, Tobit, Sirach, Wisdom, Baruch, 1 and 2 Maccabees, and additions to Esther and Daniel, all translated in the same contemporary American-idiomatic paraphrased style as the other editions of The Message®.

Eugene Peterson's The Message® is a fresh, compelling, insightful, challenging, faith-filled translation of the Bible into contemporary idiomatic American English and is first and foremost a reader's Bible. Eugene Peterson and William Griffin (translator of the deuterocanonical books) have made the Scriptures come alive again by translating them in a way that people can understand what God is trying to say to us today.

This Bible is meant to be read. The Message® is not meant to be a subsititue for your other bible translations. It is meant to sit next to them where you can pick it up and simply start reading. We hope it will send you back to your other translations with new insight and curiosity.
