The Message Bible+
- App Store Info
DescriptionDesigned for deeper Bible study, join over 4 million users on “The Bible Study App.” Learn from great scholars through thousands of resources including commentaries, maps, and dictionaries all available off-line. If you like to highlight Bible verses, take notes, bookmark passages and have everything sync to all your devices, then this is your Bible Study App.
Get into Bible reading in a new way with The Message®, a paraphrase of traditional Biblical writings. This translation uses none of the rigidly proper language of other translations—it feels like you’re reading a letter from a family member or an old friend. The language is simple but not simplistic, which makes it easier for you to apply your reading to your personal life. If you already have a Bible, The Message® is not meant to replace, but complement it in a refreshing way. If you don’t own a Bible, consider using The Message® alongside one of our other Bibles as an accessible introduction to God’s love for you.
