This is the only Kindle Bible I have found (including free Bibles from non Amazon sources) which has a full table of contents. Each Book is easily accessed from the TOC and there is a clickable numeric list of chapters in each book when you open it.

I don't understand how T.Heyn could have misread this. Maybe he had an earlier Kindle version which has since been updated.

I can find John 3:16 or any other verse in this Bible in just a few seconds. Buy this one and you will not be disappointed.

NOTE: This review was written for a first generation Kindle. Kindles have changed considerably since then so the following review should be considered in that context.

This review will simply address the mechanics of this version of the Holy Bible in regards to the Kindle. I will refrain from any comments regarding the nature of the translation, leaving that for those far more learned than myself.

I have downloaded several versions of the Holy Bible and I am pretty pleased with this one. The Table of Contents is easy to access. The individual books listed are centered and run down the middle of the page. After selecting a book, you are taken to that book with the first line(s) being a list of selectable chapters followed by the beginning of the text of that book. You can start to read or you can select a line of chapters which will take you to a sub-menu which allows you to select the specific chapter you want.

The main problem I had with this set-up is the centering of the text sometimes made it difficult to select a specific book without occasionally hitting the one on top or bottom and having to go back and try again. Also, the Chapter list sub-menu seems to be an annoying additional step.

The best "Kindle" set-up I've found so far is the Holy Bible: New American Standard Bible (NASB) (Kindle Edition) by The Lockman Foundation. The TOC is set up with a right justification so the text is right next to the cursor. Once you select a book, you are taken to a right justified chapter list. Selecting a chapter takes you right to the text, avoiding the sub-menu step. This, for me, has proven to be the most efficient style of navigation for Bible Study and reading.

I will continue my collection of Kindle Bible versions, but I'm not going to waste any more money on versions which are not optimized for the Kindle with right justification of selectable lists.

In March 2011, the copyright owners of the most popular modern translation of the Bible in English, the New International Version (NIV), published the first revision of the NIV since 1984.
As a pastor who did not like the over-reaching political correctness of the Today's New International Version (TNIV, copyright 2002), I was concerned when I heard that the NIV itself was going to be revised. But after studying the digital early release version in numerous passages, I have been pleased that it is more accurate, but disappointed that while the use of gender-neutral language does not go as far as the TNIV, it still goes too far.
The new NIV retains 95% of the words of the 1984 edition, but where there are changes, it communicates the original meaning better to modern readers and more accurately than before.
Let me address several issues: gender-neutral language, omission of words, and accuracy of translation.
First, the most controversial issue of the TNIV (the earlier failed attempt to revise the NIV) was its gender-neutral language. The Southern Baptist Convention passed a resolution in June 2011 saying they "cannot commend" the 2011 NIV. Why is that? The 2011 NIV does not go as far as the TNIV. In Hebrews 12, where scripture speaks of God disciplining us like a father, the TNIV changed "father" to "parent." This implied that God was a gender-neutral "parent" rather than our "heavenly Father." I'm glad to report that the new NIV has "father," just as the 1984 edition had. However, the new NIV, like the TNIV, does use gender-neutral "brothers and sisters" when the context clearly means all believers.

The NIV is my favorite version of the Bible. I am not rating the content of the Bible, but the ebook format. I bought this for my Kindle in the hope of quickly navigating to the scriptures in church or Bible study. For this purpose, it is not very good. I have to go back to the Table of Contents each time, trudge down the list of books of the Bible to find the book I'm looking for and then chapter and verse. If I had my regular print Bible with me I'd be at the verse much faster.

If your goal in getting the NIV is for actually reading through it, instead of quickly locating a verse, I would highly recommend this version. It is great for reading, just not great for quick reference. I do wish they would come out with an NIV Bible that showed Book and Chapter at the top or side of each page...

I think this is a great Bible for the Kindle. It is almost perfect with maybe just a couple of tweeks. I find it quick and easy to navigate to just about anywhere in the Bible (except for the New Testament, which I'll explain later). Simply go to the Table of Contents, page/scroll to the book of the Bible you are looking for and click on it. This will open up to the first chapter of that book, at the top will be a list of verse numbers, click on the line that has your the verse # you are looking for, then click on the verse # and 'voila' there you have it (sounds more time consuming than it really is). This Bible also has clickable links within the text, sort of like a paper Bible... you'll see a 'half-size' letter next to a word signifying there is a link to follow, simply scroll up to the line containing that character and click on it, it will take you to the supplemental info. Click the 'back' button to go back to where you left off.

Now, on to the New Testament, it works the same way the Old Testament does, but I find it inconvenient because, say you want to look up something in Romans... You have to page through pages and pages in the Table of Contents before you get past all the Old Testament Books before you get to the New Testament. A better work around would be to give you the option of "jumping" to New Testament books via a 'clickable link' at the beginning of the TOC.

Next, I would like more of the Study Bible comments and links added to the Bible.

Other than that, it works great and I'm extremely pleased at out easy it is to use.
