Kindle edition ruined by lack of navigation, 21 Dec 2011
I am a big fan of The Message and bought the hardback version as soon as it came out. A key use is for bible study groups. Eugene Peterson's paraphrase version of study passages is always a good source of lively discussion.
I have bought Kindle versions of my favourite bible translations which means I no longer have to carry a heavy bag (3-4 copies of the Bible) but can slip my Kindle into a pocket instead. Imagine my dismay when I discovered that there is no means to navigate to an individual chapter: indeed, when you navigate to a book of the Bible you aren't even at the start of the book - you're taken to the introductory commentary. I had foolishly assumed that an e-book with "numbered edition" in the title would have some means of navigating at least to chapter level.
If you are buying this kindle edition to read entire books of the Bible then this is fine. If you need to navigate to individual chapters then you will be as deeply disappointed as I am - buy the hardback instead.
