Pastor Justin Peters, who is a Christian apologist and Word of Faith expert, has written an excellent article detailing the problems with The Message.
The Message was authored by contemplative Eugene Peterson, the same Euguene Peterson who has endorsed the heretical book, The Shack. The Message is sometimes referred to as a Bible, but it is not in fact a Bible, but a paraphrase, in which Peterson has made substantial - and questionable - changes to the text.
