Now for the first time 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.
