While not a Bible translation and not to be used in place of reading the Bible, The Message can be a valuable reading tool to read along with your Bible, and I can’t imagine a better layout to read than this one. In this review I take a look at The Message Catholic Ecumenical Edition in paperback. This is a work by Eugene Peterson and William Griffin. ISBN: 9780879464943 Materials This is a large paperback edition with 1984 pages (counting a few blank pages in the back). It has a glued binding with paper in the upper 20s or...Read More

Holman has transitioned the HCSB to the newest version, called simply CSB, and now we can expect lots of new Bibles in this newest translation including this one: the Large Print Ultrathin Reference Bible.

Note – This was an advanced copy, so there could be some minor editorial changes since it went to print. ____________________________ Buy from Amazon ____________________________ Features CSB (Christian Standard Bible)...Read More

Although it’s only a New Testament, this edition is by far my favorite in this format. It has a feature that I’d love to see become more popular in KJV’s: single column paragraph.

It includes 500 topics with questions, Scripture references, and applications. The target audience is children and is for use by youths, adults, parents, families, teachers, and leaders. I’m reviewing ISBN: 9781936119110. ___________________________ Buy from Amazon ___________________________ Binding The cover is brown imitation leather. It has an excellent look and feel.
