Got a question? No problem! Just click here to ask us about NIV & the Message Side-by-side Bible Hardback.


Does this parallel bible have cross references?

A:Thank you for using the Q&A Forum. Cross references are not a feature of this particular Bible.

Please can you tell me if the Message version has verse numbering?

A:The publisher has not released whether the verse paragraphs are numbered in this edition, but since it is a parallel Bible they appear next to the corresponding NIV verses which are numbered. Thank you for using Q&A Forum.

Please can you confirm that this is the study edition with study notes and parallel texts. Thank you!

A:Yes, this is a study edition. Thank you for using the Q&A Forum.

Is the NIV section of this bible anglicised?

A:Thanks for your question about the NIV/Message parallel Bible. The NIV and Message sections of this Bible will use US spellings and grammar. All Bibles that use UK spellings and grammar, offered on, are described as anglicised. Otherwise spellings and grammar follow the US pattern such as spelling 'savior' rather than 'saviour'. Yours,

Thank you

A:Thanks for your question. This the same Bible as the caramel/black cherry edition but in different covers. The font size in both Bibles is 7 point. For comparison, an average church Bible is 8 point. If you want a larger font size version, look at the 'NIV & The Message Side By Side Large Print Imitation Leather Brown'. This has a 10 point font and you can find it here: Yours,
