It actually does the trick

I'm afraid I've got to disagree with the other reviewer. I can see that this won't work if you're trying to only listen to specific sections or to skip ahead to catch up with your reading group if you've fallen behind. But if you intend to listen it through from start to finish - as you do with an audiobook - it's simply excellent. The narration is passionate without sounding over-dramatized and Peterson's translation really lends itself to a narration. I couldn't come to grips with the Message translation as a written book, but listening to it really opens up the Bible for me. If one considers that, for millennia, the Word of God has been primarily passed on verbally with Rabbis, Priests and Pastors relating the stories to their faithful (and illiterate) flock, one wonders whether this could perhaps be a return to something we've lost. This isn't a study Bible, it's a Bible reading tool designed to read through the whole Bible and get the big picture, connecting the dots like never before. If you, like me, have never made it through the whole thing, I suggest you join me and let Peterson and Dolan tell you the old-old stories like you haven't heard them since you were a kid.

A helpful way to consolidate knowledge of scripture

I decided yet again to read through my bible in a year, feeling that I lacked a good overall understanding of how the book fits together. I'm so glad that I decided to do this this year. I listen to the Daily Message and I am simultaneously reading through the Living Bible. I have found that when I read it all seems more familiar as I have already heard it. It's great to be able to stop and pause when I need to make notes or do some research if I need more depth and insight from another translation. NB I realise that the MSG is a paraphrase and so I use it with the ESV and Amplified versions of the Bible. I recommend this highly!
