IMPORTANT NOTE: What sets our library apart from any other is we have pains-takingly spent hundreds of hours specifically on the feature base to make your experience the most rewarding. Our philosophy is that if it’s going to be in electronic format, it ought to include and utilize all the features that an electronic format should provide. One such feature is cross-reference linking. Many other scripture collections don't have links where there ought to be. When studying in a hardcopy version of the scriptures and coming to footnote references, you must take the time to flip through pages to go to the footnote reference. Sometimes this even requires opening a separate book. One of the best features of this collection is the extensive cross-reference linking throughout the entire library. This collection is fully equipped with the complete Scripture footnotes, Topical Guide, Bible Dictionary, Index, Guide to the Scriptures, and more. Unlike many other collections, as you study in this edition, you will see hundreds of thousands of links through out the Scriptures and other works. Simply select the links to follow to their respective locations whether it be a footnote to the Topical Guide or to another Scripture references. Also, the scripture references that appear in the other works (manuals, commentaries,etc.), are linked back to the scriptures. ‘See also’ topics in the Topical Guide, Bible Dictionary, Index, Guide to the Scriptures, True to the Faith and other such reference works are linked to there respective locations.

5.0 out of 5 stars At Last: A Kindle Friendly set of Scriptures September 3, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For years, prior to getting a Kindle, I had been using an old Palm Pilot M515, solely for my scriptures. I would carry it to work in my pocket and spend my lunch time reading.

I got comfortable with the standard works that I downloaded from the LDS web site. They had the cross indexing that I needed.

When I got the Kindle in May I discovered that Blackberry had the standard works for free. I downloaded them and used them on my Kindle 3G. I also downloaded from the Church web site the Gospel Princples and the Sunday School manual. The only draw back being that they were not interconnected with the standard works. I was not able to go to the scripture references in the manual and back again.

I also didn't have the topical guide or the Bible dictionary.

These were small "problems" which I learned to live with and ignore.

I have tried, literally, every single set of LDS related scriptures that are currently on offer here at Amazon, hoping to find that single set that would let me connect the dots, so to speak. I was looking for a set that would let me cross reference, annotate, and effectively, allow me to use my scriptures on the Kindle as I would with my paper bound set.

I was disapointed at each turn. One of them would have what I needed, but for some inane reason while I could do the cross referencing and cross checking, it was a one way journey; I wasn't able to back track to my original starting point. Another set took forever to load up and was slower than molasses in January.

Another left out the Joseph Smith Translation, in favor of a set of "scriptures" that the LDS Church doesn't acknowledge as being 100% accurate.

All roads, it seemed led me back to my trusty Blackberry set of Standard Works.

5.0 out of 5 stars WONDERFUL! EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR A GREAT PRICE! September 7, 2011
By Val
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I downloaded this on my kindle, I was only going to spend a few minutes looking through it but wound up spending almost an hour reading! When you first open the book, it takes you to the first book in the Bible, Genesis. It took me awhile to figure out how to get to the other books, like the Book of Mormon, but all you have to do is press the back page on your kindle and it takes you to the others...at least, that's how I did it.
It has everything you need and more! You can find scriptures easily and quickly, too. That's always a bonus! I like the footnotes and references...that's what captured my attention and made me want to read more.
I love it and I think it is very much worth the price to have the scriptures on your kindle!!!

The other reviews here contain a lot of helpful information, so I will focus on a couple of points that haven't yet been raised. First, I've been watching closely for some kind of gospel-study ebook or appliction for the Kindle that would replace a Windows-Mobile application suite called "YanceyWare" that I've been using for several years on an HP iPAQ PDA. This product from LDS Book Club comes the closest to matching the functionality and ease of navigation of YanceyWare of anything I've tried so far. This is indeed an excellent, comprehensive, foot-noted, thoroughly hyperlinked LDS gospel-study ebook collection in a single file that is probably about as good as it's going to get until an active-content application like the Church's Gospel Library app for Android, Blackberry, iPhone, iPad, etc., is released for the Kindle. The main things missing from a static ebook like this (that are included in an application like YanceyWare or Gospel Library) are the hierarchical "bread crumbs" (hyperlinks) at the top or bottom of each page/screen that make it easy to navigate back to intermediate or other key points in the file(s). Fortunately, the "Back" button on the Kindle at least permits retracing one's steps fairly easily.

Another major advantage of an application like YanceyWare or Gospel Library over a static ebook collection like this is that you can add and subtract books easily to/from your virtual library as needed while maintaining the hyperlinked cross-references among all of the content in your LDS library. Here, you have to wait for the publisher to add additional books to the static collection or update out-of-date content because supplemental LDS ebooks you add will likely not be cross-referenced (hyperlinked) to this content, and vice versa.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not The Best App for Kindle Fire November 21, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This gospel library is everything it claims to be, but for the Kindle Fire, LDSScriptures.com is far superior. To be fair, LDSScriptures.com is an app--not a book, and it's $5 more. But it's much more user-friendly, particularly when it comes to searching for words or phrases. Both have a Topical Guide with hot-links to the referenced verse, but LDSScriptures.com also lets you search for any word or phrase. It also includes the actual music with the hymns--just like the hard-copy hymnal, which this one does not.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, this is great! December 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't know why one reviewer had a problem on his Kindle Touch, this works great on mine! It also works well on my Android tablet, although the Android platform allows scripture apps that are so much better than just an e-book, such as Reveal Reader and the Church's own Gospel Library. So, even though this is an e-book I liked this version because all the links make it so much more like an app than "just an e-book" for the Kindle. Switching from one book to another is much easier than some of the other versions currently out. It's nice that you can always tell where you are using this version. I really appreciated all the content that comes with this that is more than just the scriptures, they also work well on the Kindle Touch, even the pictures and maps!
