Navigation is OK but could be better. Bottom line: if you want the Message its the only choice.

The contents gives direct access to he book but not the chapter. That makes books like Psalms problematic. To overcome requires use of the slider and an estimate of the page number of the chapter you are looking for. Other books like the minor prophets are no big deal. ...

navigation

difficult to move to a book of the Bible. The Contents only gives you the option to go to the start of the Old Testament or the start of the New Testament. You can't jump directly to the start of the Gospel of John, for example, from the Contents screen.

    Interesting version of the Bible. Some passages are excellently

    Interesting version of the Bible. Some passages are excellently done. A little too modern for me, but if that is how you feel comfortable reading the Word, then this is for you.

    To read is good; not so much for Bible study.

    Slow to navigate because of verse numbering.

    A reviewer

    A boring, droning history which makes all of my high-school social studies classes seem interesting. If only it were true.
