We are kindle novices but thought we'd start by getting a copy of the bible. We bought the message coz we like it but then were very annoyed to find that we practically had to page turn our way through to the book / chapter / verse we wanted to read. The menus for the kindle version of this are rubbish. I'm hoping some of you more savvy kindle users can show me where we're going wrong but right now I'm v disappointed with this buy. Considering how easy my ipod bible is, this is rubbish.

I came across 'The Message' by accident. But as I began to read Luke's gospel, the way 'The Message' puts things began to impact my imagination in a fresh new way. I felt compelled to buy a copy for myself. Here's what I think overall.

Is it really the Word of God? I suppose, taken as a whole, we can say that 'The Message' just about delivers the Word of God to us. However, there are far too many inaccuracies for it to be regarded anywhere close to the purity of the NIV, the ESV, the NASB, the NKJV, etc. Interpretive mistakes are bound to crop up with great frequency when something like this is done, plus it's the work of only one man. So if you're looking for an accurate translation, please look elsewhere. Peterson himself says he feels uncomfortable when pastors read and preach from 'The Message' in their churches, because it was never intended for that. In fairness to him, I don't think Peterson ever wanted 'The Message' to have the same status as the other more accurate translations. 'The Message' has an entirely different and inferior purpose to the goals of these great translations, and we all need to recognise that. Nevertheless: I still think it's important for people to realise that 'The Message' does indeed have a valuable place in Christian literature.

This is a 'reading' Bible (certainly not a study Bible). It is meant only for individual Christians to read and enjoy basically what is going on in the Word of God and what God wants us to do. If used for this purpose, then it will deliver great benefit. The reader will gain a pretty good grasp of God's workings through-out history with Israel and through Jesus.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good version but Kindle navigation is awful 5 Nov 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
We use the Message in our Bible study group as an alternative reading. It's often very helpful and sometimes quite amusing. I bought the Kindle version so a partially-sighted member could read it. She finds a large font with white on black quite readable compared to a printout.
But the navigation is - as others have said (unfortunately I couldn't download the sample and hoped they were talking about version 1) - is awful. And this from Navpress, a part of the Navigators! Just try the NIV to see how easy navigation can be. I reckon I could find a passage on my Kindle NIV faster than anyone with a paper version. The best I have managed with the Message is:
- Go to table of contents (4 clicks).
- Flip through pages to get hyperlink to required book (these cover 5 pages)
- The hyperlink takes you to an introduction on most books which you must also flip through. (The intro to Psalms is 5 pages.)
- Then you come to chapter hyperlinks - one per line! So the Psalms links cover 7 pages!
How many clicks in total? I think to get to the start of any Psalm about 14 on average!
By comparison, the NIV has a 'finder' link on every page. This takes you to one page containing links to all books. Each link takes you to the start of the book preceded by links to all the chapters, plus an 'info' link that takes you to an introduction.
Total of 3 clicks to any chapter!

Come on Navpress, get your act together. You didn't really put much effort into this at all, did you?

1.0 out of 5 stars Useless Table of contents (Kindle version) 14 Feb 2011
By Ron D
Format:Kindle Edition
This low score is not about the Message content itself but about the completely useless Table of Contents that makes finding a passage in the Bible utterly frustrating.
You go to table of contents to select a book (e.g. Leviticus, Matthew, Romans or whatever). Selecting a book should take you to another table of contents to enable you to select a chapter. But NO. It takes you to an Introduction to the book. This can be anything up to twelve or more pages long before you get to the book's individual Table of Contents in order to select the chapter required.
The book's Introduction should be the first item in the book's Table of Contents followed by each individual chapter number.
The person who put the Table of Contents together has obviously not tried to use it seriously. Who wants to read the introduction to a book every time you go to that book? Come on Navpress: if you are responsible then a little more thought might help.
As I said at the beginning, this review is not about the 'The Message' Bible itself but only about the 'Kindle' version.

By E. WOOLSTON TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoy this version. It's given me fresh insights into some Bible passages. It doesn't claim to be an accurate translation, it is a paraphrase and, as such, should be read alongside a more traditional version but what it does, it does well.
But now for the Kindle edition wish list. A few changes would have made a big difference (and earn an extra star). I know that Kindle books can't have 'headers' because the text size could change what is on the page but it would be great if there was some quick way to check which book you are in. The layout does have a chapter and verse reference at the start of each paragraph eg [6.7-8] but it would be great if this included an abbreviated Book reference eg. [Rev. 6.7-8] With a key for Book abbreviations, it would be easy for a reader to look up a reference.
2. Please let the table of contents give a link to the start of the Bible text rather than the summary pages. By the time I've found something in this book, it's far to late for me to use it during a sermon.
