I'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.
