I have another version of the NIV and The Message Side by Side Bible and it leaves more notes and explanations following each chapter. I am not sure if this is an older or newer version but this version isn't as in depth and explanatory as I was expecting in comparison to the leather version of the same Bible that I have.

This was a gift for me a few years ago when I first came to Christ and it helped me out so much. Recently a friend of mine wanted to know more about the Lord so I bought this for her as a gift and she absolutely loves it. She loves that it is so easy to read and understand!

Niv, The Message side-by-side Bible I bought for a friend. I have read this book myself a great book. This book was written so you can understand the Bible better. You should go some where and read it. You love it. Then go to Amazon and but it. They have the best price for it.

I love The Message for it's conversational style. Whenever I read it I always get a new insight and I love having the NIV, which i the first Bible I ever read, right there to refer to and the price was right!

Love the side by side interpretations. The Word of God is easy to follow. Some may need a larger print, but for me is ideal. Highly recommend to friends who yearn to read the Word of God and learn more from God.

It's exactly what I expected it to be. I have another parallel Bible with other translations and/or paraphrases, which of course The Message is. I'm reading a devotional that quotes from The Message, but I prefer the NIV text usually, and am more familiar with it. Just wanted to compare because the Message sometimes makes the passages clearer. Since I've been going to several different churches lately, in order to find a home church, I find so many different translations are preferred. The Message being so different, I really like being able to compare it side-by-side with the NIV. I would really rather have had a book with four different translations,as this one is almost as heavy, but those cost too much for me at the moment.

Both paraphrases ar good separately. Together, they are complementary, and help the reader grasp the true meaning of the Scriptures.

Sometimes, reading certain translations can get a bit rote, so having the Message paraphrase side by side is such a blessing. It helps clarify the underlying message of a passage. I love using it to just unwind also. The Message reads like a novel. Ahhhh...
