Part paraphrase, part commentary, part survey, and part critical notes, this massive work was likely the inspiration for the modern day "Message Bible" by Eugene H. Peterson. The difference is that this resource is not in “Bible verse format”. This resource is grouped according to natural classification and order of appearance. See the complete list of contents at the end of this description.

In addition to examining the 66 book Protestant cannon, this book also examines the Apocrypha and other ancient writings (i.e. see the review of all Apocalyptic literature in comparison with Revelation).

Although not a substitute for the Bible (see the Introduction, subsection, “How To Make Use Of A Paraphrase”), this resource offers a scholarly, reverent, appreciative, and enthusiastic reading of the Bible.

See also the companion resource by the same author: The Historical Bible (6 vols).
