  • Description

    Language changes. New words are formed. Old words take on new meaning. There is a need in every generation to keep the language of the gospel message current, fresh, and understandable—the way it was for its very first readers. That is what The Message seeks to accomplish for contemporary readers. It is a version for our time—designed to be read by contemporary people in the same way as the original koin Greek and Hebrew manuscripts were savored by people thousands of years ago.

      Easy to read. May lose some of the famous verses we know from KJ. But easy to spend time with.

      It's no substitute for one of the authoritative translations and it's definitely not a study Bible. It's far and away the best of the common speech renderings but almost useless without chapter and verse searching. Fix that and it's worth 5 stars.

      Not being able to select chapter & verse makes this book useless for bible study. You should issue refunds to all who bought this book.

      Why does the table of contents just go to Kings? It's very difficult to get to the book of the Bible you want after that. Would be great if it had the table of contents for the entire book. Can this be fixed?

      The content is great! The downside is that you can't do a search by chapter-you have to keep flipping until you reach your desired verse (not good).
