This new paraphrase is like a "Reader's Digest" version of the New Testament letters, capturing the original writers' essential meaning in 21st Century language - easy to read and understand. Without chapters or verses, notes, references, cross references, theological or denominational slants, these letters flow much as they did when written nearly 2,000 years ago. Readers will be encouraged, perhaps even amazed, at just how practical, timeless, relevant, and alive these letters really are. Highly recommended for anyone seeking an introductory overview of the New Testament epistles.
Excerpt: "You need a sense of release when it comes to sharing your problems and needs with God. Don't hold anything back. The result will be that God provides you with a special kind of peace that you have never before experienced. He will have complete control of your emotions and minds and that will give you a deep sense of security. There are some great things to think about, even though the world around us is so evil. Things that are true and good, lovely and honest, just and pure – these are the kind of thoughts that deserve your focus. Dwelling on these thoughts will produce mental and spiritual health and overall well-being in your life" (Philippians 4:6-9).
"We are all running in a race and we must all run to win. Discipline and self-control will help us. Our race is not to receive a wreath, but a real crown that will last forever. I can't do this by wringing my hands and shadow boxing. I must control my body with all its impulses and desires because if I don't, I can still find myself on the shelf like a worn out quill." (from Paul's First letter to the believers in Corinth)
