Because I use my Kindle mainly for quick reads or to look up a passage when I don't have my paper Bible on hand, speed of navigation is very important. Multiple people have noted they navigate to verses via the Table of Contents. The wonderful thing about this NASB Kindle version is you don't have to use the ToC. Unlike the NIV mentioned above, each chapter includes both the book name as well as the chapter number which allows you to conveniently search by book and chapter.
So if you wanted to find Isaiah 43:25 all you need to do is start typing with the keypad "Isaiah 43" click return and it will bring up your search results. The first result is usually the correct one so all you do is press the navigation nub down and you will go to Isaiah 43. Then just "Next Page" until you reach verse 25 and you'll get there much faster than navigating via the ToC.
There are a few caveats using this method:
1. Searching for the first chapter of a book doesn't work because the first chapter of each book only has the book name and not the chapter number. So your best bet is to search for the second chapter and then "Prev Page" to chapter one.
2. Search results for the gospel/epistles of John will return varying results as they share the same book name.
Also, there are no footnotes as you would find in a printed version of the NASB 1995. I would love to see those added.Read more ›
I have downloaded several Kindle versions of the Holy Bible and have found this one to be the most well thought out in terms of Kindle navigation.
One of the few problems I have had with the Kindle is selecting specific lines of text with the cursor which moves up and down the right side of the reading pane. If the text is located in the center of the page (Holy Bible, New International Version, NIV Kindle Edition by International Bible Society), or worse, justified left (Holy Bible, King James Version KJV Kindle Edition by Olive Tree Bible Software), then it is sometimes difficult to line up the cursor with the book you wish to jump to.
This is the first edition I've had experience with that justifies the Table of Contents to the right, next to the cursor, so it is easy to select a particular line. I also really like the fact that after selecting a particular book, you are immediately taken to a sub menu listing the individual chapters, also justified right.
The verse numbers are set slightly above the text when you actually reach text for continued simplicity in navigation.
For me, this is the best set-up for Kindle versions of Holy Scripture and after a little practice, I have been able to look up verses faster than I am able to do with an actual book.
I specifically recommend this version for those looking for a "Kindle Friendly" version of the Holy Bible and especially to those who are looking for a NASB version.
The NASB has traditionally been awarded the title of "the most literally accurate translation", and while I don't believe this to be 100% accurate, I think it's close on the mark. The NASB does benefit from excellent scholarship, and from major advances in Biblical discovery from the last few decades. Throw in the benefit of the cost of this Bible, which is very inexpensive, and you have an excellent Bible to use for a long time. In addition, the concordance at the back of this bible is frosting on the cake.
