I continue to be awed by this beautiful book. A translation in process, The Mirror Bible has spoken to my heart with crystal clear language, holding up a looking glass so that I can see once and forever my true nature, my real origin, my everlasting identity. I'm so pleased with it! It is, in my belief, the most significant rendering of God's word in this generation. The Spirit SINGS through the pages of The Mirror Bible! The understanding of Grace is so beautiful, so pure, and so refreshing that I truly can't put it down.

I highly recommend The Mirror Bible and encourage anyone who is considering it to delve deep into the beautiful, gracious words on each page.

P.S. As far as another reviewer's assertion of universalism goes, don't believe it. There is no "new" form of trinitarianism or anything else, nor is there an agenda other than to reveal what the Spirit is saying in the written word of God... and it's the same thing He's been saying all through history.

The word paraphrase doesn't really communicate what the Mirror translation of the Christian scriptures is all about. Through language that captures the essential spirit and message of the original authors combined with the presentation of thorougly researched word studies set along with the text the Mirror Bible provides an experience as close to that of a first century Christ Follower reading a letter to the Church from one of the first apostles as possible.

The presentation of the first chapter of the Gospel of John by itself is more than worth the price of the book.

Almost everyone I have shared the Mirror experience with has said something similar to "if the Apostle Paul's native language had been English this is how his letters would read."

Francois blew it out of the water with this translation. It is quickly becoming one of my favorite translations of the bible (of which I have many).

This translations has done many things for me:
1) it challenged my perception of how I read the bible. I grew up in church my whole life, and so I am used to the same basic ideas in each verse, due to repetition. But this bible brings a glorious and much needed freshness to the bible.

2) it clarified many hard to understand scriptures. Francois does a great job with his commentary and explanations into the Greek of the text. You can tell he did his homework with this one, and he proves it to you.

3) This translation intoxicated me with the love, and goodness of God made manifest through the cross of Jesus Christ! I found myself only being able to digest a chapther a day of this bible, because I would read a verse, and meditate upon it for 10-15 minutes! This book, if you let it, will radically change your adoration for the Lord! Francois presents the pure Gospel in such a profound and beautiful way that the only response is to adore God! :)

I love this translation and I HIGHLY recommend it to you! :)

My cousin recently gave me this book when it came up in conversation that our family was learning Greek in order to read the New Testament in its original language. I had never heard of it before. I decided to start with Romans as I myself had recently paraphrased some of that book. I wasn't sure if I should laugh or cry when I started reading.

By way of example, in Romans 9-11, Paul is discussing with the Gentile Romans the fact that Jesus, the Messiah, had come, but most of the Jews did not believe Jesus was the Christ and that this was exactly what Isaiah had prophesied would happen (Isaiah 10), and that God's judgment was coming on those who clung to the Old Covenant system and didn't have faith in Christ. (That judgment day came about 20 years after Paul's letter when Jerusalem and the Temple were destroyed.) Paul went on the remind the Romans that if they did not persist in their faith, they, too, would be destroyed.

Now, keeping that in mind, here is the NIV translation of the original Greek of Romans 9:27-28,

"Isaiah cries out concerning Israel: "Though the number of the Israelites be like the sand by the sea, only the remnant
will be saved. For the Lord will carry out his sentence on earth with speed and finality."

And the Mirror Bible paraphrase "of the original Greek" of those same two verses:

"Isaiah weeps for Israel: 'You might feel lost in the crowd, because your numbers equal the grains of the sand of the
sea, but God does not abandon the individual.' Numbers do not distract God's attention from the value of the one. For
his word will perfect his righteousness without delay; his word is poetry upon the earth."

Huh?!
