I read this as an in-depth study over the course of 8 or 9 months with a group. I found that it gave us some new perspectives on the way we looked at Jesus, and provided some interesting discussion topics for us to evaluate our faith.I found some of his assertions to be a bit out there, and didnt quite agree with everything he said, especially in a few of the more difficult parable chapters. It almost felt like reaching, at some points, for an interpretation that just wasnt there.

Also, I prefer the Biblical text (I was raised on NIV), rather than his own translation directly from the Greek that he published in The Message. While it may be helpful to read it in our own form of language, I think some of it leaves out a lot of the force behind Jesus words and actions.

For example, in one parable it was translated to the effect of the main character saying to get people away from him, while in my Bible (NIV) it said to take the people out and kill them. Just being nit-picky...
