Reviews - What do customers think about Message-Complete Pocket Bible-Burgundy Bond?
Very small edition Dec 27, 2008
My mother in law asked for The Message as a Christmas gift. I ordered this and received it, then realizing how small it is. It is a compact version. She was thrilled, but as I feared, the print was too small for her to comfortably read. I will go to a bookstore to repurchase this book in a more readable version.
Leather Message Dec 16, 2008
This is a beautiful gift Bible of lovely leather with gold edges at the pages.
Small print Dec 2, 2008
The product did not come up to my expectations. The print was too small. My wife and I are in our 80s and don't have the vision we once had for these things. Sorry, I returned the item and was credited.
Bible Reading Nov 24, 2008
This is an excellent version for personal reading. I did not find it helpful in a classroom setting.
this version of The Message is disappointing Oct 18, 2008
This version of The Message (and it's not about the "message") is that the print is so very small that even young eyes cannot read it. It's small and compact...so if you'd like to use it for travel, that would be good. But, if you're intending to use this in a more public setting and for study the print size is a handicap. Unfortunately, that was my plan and had ordered (and planned to order more) multiple copies which I had to return.
