I won't give you a rundown of texts. Explore them for yourself.
What I will do is tell you What Kindle Readers Want To Know:
It has an Active Table of Contents for the main contents page
and for the individual books. A great plus for Navigating!
Is is formatted very well for Kindle with verse numbers and clear reading.
With that in mind, spend the 99 cents and get some "extra credit"!
They aren't in the Bible because somebody at a council close to 1700 years ago decided they shouldn't be in the Bible. However, some Bibles are printed with the Apocrypha between the Old and New Testament, which is a good place for them. They include history, wisdom literature, and prophecy (well hidden). If you're going to read Josephus, who is a monumentally boring writer but the only source for many things, take pity on yourself and read the Apocrypha first.
If you aren't going to read Josephus, read the Apocrypha anyway. It's well worth reading. I enjoyed it the first time I read it, and during subsequent readings.
A good value for only 99 cents.
The translation is in old English, like the King James Bible version, which is okay by me. Each book includes a small commentary introduction in modern English.
It is Fairly well indexed. It has a table of contents with links to each book. You can super-page from book to book. At the start of each book there is a link to each chapter in the book. But you cannot super-page from chapter to chapter. You must return to the start of the book and take a link to the desired chapter.
The Apocrypha, though originally part of the Catholic Bible (and still is today), was later removed from the Bible by the Protestant Christian faiths. The Apocrypha is an intriguing set of writings that remind the Christian believer that although the Bible is a selection of scripture given by God, it is not the only word regarding the life and ministry of Jesus Christ and his apostles and missionaries; it is simply what religious scholars over the ages have agreed to be Gospel.
Nestle's Greek New Testament, considered by most scholars to be the foundation upon which all other New Testament translations derived, lists 132 New Testament passages that allude to books that are not part of the modern day New Testament. All modern versions of the New Testament have references to books that are missing from the New Testament such as Thias, Epimenides, the Book of Enoch, The Life of Adam and Eve, the Assumption of Moses and the Martyrdom of Isaiah, to name a few.
It is interesting how most Christians will claim that the Bible is infallible, perfect and complete.Read more ›
