Review: The Daily Message
I like this "Through the Bible in a year" format simply because it is far too easy to get behind. You lose a day, you try to catch up, but you can't. In those formats I feel as though there is no point. If I can't do it right, why do it at all? The Daily Message has only 6 readings a week, giving you a day to either rest and reflect or catch up on what you have missed.
The Message is not necessarily a study Bible. It is the Bible in easy-to-understand language. However, it is a great read first thing in the morning. It makes you think, it makes the Bible more real, alive and easy to understand and apply to your day. Because of this, I am a fan. I still prefer to do my daily devotions in my NIV study Bible, but use this for a reader book when I am feeling motivated. It is great to compare notes with and relatively inexpensive.
