"It is the very nature of language to form rather than inform. When language is personal, which it is at its best, it reveals and revelation is always formative - we don't know more, we become more. Our best users of language, poets and lovers and children and saints, use words to make - make intimacies, make character, make beauty, make goodness, make truth."

~Eugene Peterson, Eat This Book

Good quote. I use The Message for casual reading, the NIV for study.
