Arguably the NIV is the most faithful literal translation of the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts into modern English that the Bible has ever gone through. It took 100's of scholars, translators, lingual stylist, and considerable oversight over the course of decades to bring us this copy. This gives the reader an unprecedented look at the Word as spoken in the time it was written.

The Message is a stylized modern liberal interpretation of how the Word would be spoken today with our lingual nuances and mannerisms.

This Book presents both collections side by side in comparative parallel with included notes and NIV concordance. Bound in duo-toned bonded leather turtle shell cover and gold gilded edges with a gold ribbon place marker. It is thick - remember it contains two Bibles, however it feels very comfortable to hold while reading and carrying.

The print is Zondervan's standard size print which is about 9 points, if you need 12 point then buy a larger print Bible.

Reason for five star rating - 1.) awesome translation that somehow restores the impact of the text lost by using stilted language. 2.) very good and very familiar translation side by side to help "orient" me with what I had already known 3.) Nice quality materials and manufacture of the book itself. My experience reading the Bible and teaching SS made me very familiar with Romans, but the first time I ready a chapter of Romans from "The Message" I was stunned by its impact on my mind and spirit. It wasn't the words, it was THE MESSAGE. I get the title and I think it is completely appropriate. I think it is a treasure on the scale of Matthew Henry's Commentary. IMHO

Love the parallel of both versions. Font is a bit small for those who have issues reading small print. Very nice bible. I saw large print in store..it looks like regular print lol. This print maybe 8-9 large print 12 -14. Overall great bible.
