4.0 out of 5 stars Great Kindle-edition Bible!, January 30, 2008
This review is from: Holy Bible (NIV) (New International Version) (Kindle Edition)
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.

Your review was essential to getting me started using the Bible in Kindle since I'm a new Kindle user. At first I was totally lost trying to navigate. Having the Bible on my Kindle is great, but this will NEVER replace a good old paper book for all the added features and ease of making my own notations in the Word. I'll call the Kindle version my "travel" Bible just for on the go. Thanks.

One of the things I love about the Kindle is the ability to highlight passages and add notes...I agree it's no substitute for a real Bible but I love the highlighting feature! And I can add a "bookmark" to jump to the NT...
