Reviews - What do customers think about Message/Numbered Edition-Allig Brown/Tan Bonded?
An excellent book Sep 5, 2008
I purchased "The Message" translation of the Bible and it arrived right on time and in perfect condition.
The Message Bible Jun 25, 2008
I am pleasantly surprised and pleased with this purchase. The Bible is beautifully made, and very high quality, but the best part is that it is written in contemporary language, and is actually readable and understandable. I enjoy sitting down and reading and really knowing the history of our life and world. This edition also has numbered chapters, so there is no more not knowing exactly where to look for a specific verse.
Beautiful cover, great translation Apr 21, 2008
Beautiful aligator skin cover, I love the Message translation of the Bible. Very easy to understand. I wish there were more notes in it but perhaps I am need to look for a study Bible. I bought this for my husband, who is a new Christian, and he loves it except the pages are so thin, he is afraid he might tear them. Overall we love it.
Refreshing! Wonderful Tool! Apr 9, 2008
I think this is great when reading/teaching the younger generation. Also great for bringing to life to what we've read over and over in the past. No Dictionary (however, it's less needed in this version that most, but still needed) No Concordance Either. Maps and Time lines are great.
Excellent reading Jan 7, 2008
Put into today's contemporary language, this version of the Bible is quite easy to read; great tool to use while using a study bible and concordance.
