There is a lot of (unfortunate) debate about the validity of this translation of the Bible. Some refuse to call it any more than a paraphrase. Living in a foreign, non-Western culture (and having worked on some translation myself) helped me better understand the importance of context, the influence of culture, and the shortcomings of literal translations in writing.

As I read Petersons translation of the Bible, I am mindful that it is not a literal translation but am more than satisfied with the heart of the message he seems to capture so well. I really love reading it! Its like a new romance with an old friend. So over the next year I am attempting to read the whole thing! Well see how this goes...FYI...Im reading the free version of this on www.youversion.com, and will be using the ESV Reading Plan on the same site (even though Im not reading the ESV version).

Bottom line, Ill be jumping around each day between different parts instead of reading cover-to-cover. Im currently on day 18 of the plan.
