Reviews - What do customers think about Message/Numbered Edition-Personal Size-Sage Bond?
Beautiful Message, Beautiful Book Sep 8, 2008
This not only contains the 'Message' of the God of Creation, it is wrapped in an oh so soft and lovely cover that it is double joy to read and understand! There are some issues here and there as to the translation itself from a scholarly point of view but for getting the true 'message', it is superior! Fun to read, delightful to hold, easy on the eyes, just a wonderful edition! It is good to have another translation available to compare with as the author suggests, just to round out the thought.
Well written Apr 28, 2008
I have tried many times in the past to read the King James Version Bible to no avail. I would have trouble understanding the language of the time and soon loose interest. The Message is well written and easy to understand. I have enjoyed this version of the Bible. This is actually my second purchase and is used for travel. I have the Message in Large Print for home. If you have wanted to learn more about God, Jesus and the Bible without the struggle, try this. I would recommend highly.
