This would be a copyrighted text that is not available for free distribution. I think there are some places where you could purchase an electronic version of it, then you could use your copy to import into BibleWorks if you wanted.

Please check any copyright restrictions carefully (either from printed materials, or electronic/CD, et al), before formatting the text and making it available for putting into BW. - It might not be legally possible to do what you want to do. :o

The Message is available in e-sword, which includes other versions, such as The Good News Bible not available in BibleWorks.

See http://e-sword.net/

This program is free, but you are encouraged to donate $15 USD, for which the developer will send you a CD-ROM of the program. Only about 1 per cent of people do, but with 3 million downloads, he has managed to keep running with only a 1% thank you! [Rick Meyers might well ask, paraphrasing Jesus: Where are the other 99?]

If you look at the distribution map on that site, you'll see e-sword being used almost everywhere except Greenland [or, at least downloaded]. Ironically, they have coloured the countries where it is used in Green, which means the only country not coloured green is Greenland!

I love BibleWorks, but am amazed by what a free program can do. e-sword is a wonderful supplement to BibleWorks.

I have just uploaded 12 new Bibles to the Master List which includes all of e-Sword's "missing" Bibles as well (e.g. Good News Bible, etc.)
