5.0 out of 5 stars Brings the Bible to life; very refreshing., 19 Aug 2014

This review is from: Holy Bible - Message version (Numbered Edition) (Kindle Edition)
I have "The Message" NT but wanted the whole Bible, and buying it for my Kindle, at this price, seemed like a good deal.
I read all the reviews, including a few which said that the navigation was poor, and it was rubbish, or a waste of money. That made me hesitant, but I would never describe the word of God as rubbish, and felt that any slight irritation, or technical issues, would be worth it to be able to read this version of the Bible.
When I got it, I think I skipped several pages in my enthusiasm to start reading, and it did seem, at first, as though navigation was indeed going to be a problem. But then I went right back to the beginning, found a list of contents at location 35, and it's all good.
This is a paraphrase of the Bible, yet made after consulting Greek and Hebrew texts. The NT was written in colloquial, conversational Greek, and the Message is written in a similar style, (in English!) I would definitely recommend The Message; not as a study Bible, but the author himself says that it is not meant to be one.
