The Message Bible translation

What is everyone's take on The Message translation of the Bible? I have been working with the youth latley, and have found it is a really good way to get "the message" across.

Thanks
Robby

I liked the thought-for-thought translations when I was a younger Christian, but as I have matured in my faith, I like the word for word translations better. Its all God's word and says the same thing though so its really down to what you like.

Good comments above...

I use it often when I preach as I want people to easily understand what they may be hearing for the first time. I like it okay for that reason. I do not read it though as I prefer NIV or NLT (a bit more modern than the NIV)...
