Every Sunday, I lead a Bible Study at an Assisted Living Home for seniors. I love using the Message and they like it too, however I like being able to give them two versions of the readings. It's been a big help.
Once I started reading the side by side of NIV and the messages bible the words of God just came alive just like I never read the Bible Before. I love it and now my friends want to order them one. I like the large print.
I gave this Bible to my granddaughter.. I have been mentoring her the past few months and since she'd never had a Bible of her own nor read one my granddaughter & I went through the online selections of Bibles you have available. After looking through the many you have, I said this one would be excellent. I believe it will bring Gods Word to life in her mind and heart. Ir was just two days after I recd it, I gave it my granddaughter. Two days later, she texted me & said, "Oh Grama I can't put my new Bible down! I love it so much. You told me God speaks to those who read and are ready to receive His word. Now, I have experienced it for myself. Thank you Grama, I love you". Isn't God just so true to His Word to keep His promises, be there for us and to love us always.
