Georgia5 Stars Out Of 5NIV and The Message Side-by-Side Bible, Two Bible Versions TogetherNovember 10, 2017GeorgiaQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I am really enjoying reading them side by side. I read a chapter or so of the NIV, and then re-read the Message. So far, I usually stop with a little more insight, or thinking, "I never, thought of it that way." I think this would make a fun Bible Study.

Dianesgems4 Stars Out Of 5A bit disappointedMarch 15, 2017DianesgemsQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3I've been listening to The Message on audio, and finding it provides new insights. One of the things I most appreciate about it is the introductions to each book, as they help me see aspects of each book that I hadn't caught before. All of this made me want to be able to compare what I was hearing with my usual go-to version, the NIV. But this parallel text doesn't include either version's introductions, which means I'll have to pick up a copy of The Message as a stand-alone and juggle two large books in order to look and compare at the very helpful explanatory material of each.
Otherwise, it's a nice parallel Bible, and the font size is fine even for my aging eyes.
