The Message100: The Story of God in Sequence, published by NAV Press, With Tyndale Publishing, is a Bible that seeks to carry its reader through the Word of God as it is divided into 100 messages.

This Bible is designed to, while containing the entire Word of God, move its reader through the unfolding story of scripture. It is designed to be utilized by a student of the Word at any level, from beginner to the highly educated Biblical scholar.

Each of the 100 readings begins with a brief reflection from Eugene Peterson, which is meant to orient the reader towards what they need to know about the letter that they are about to read. Each letter has been given a title; for example, section or letter number 018 is entitled In This Present Moment. Each of the letters is placed with a specific section, under a specific title.

While this Bible does not contain the “Norms” found in the average Bible, it does present the Message in a very powerful, unique manner. Thus it is a recommended purchase for personal study or as a gift for someone wanting a greater understanding of God’s Word.
