Having just purchased a faux-leather bound copy of the NABRE, I was happy to see the version now available for Kindle. The text is currently quite small in the print copies and not easy on the eyes. I find I can read, and do read, the Kindle format with less strain and therefore more eagerness (since you can increase and decrease the font size to your liking). Cross references, happily, actually link to the referenced verses. Navigation is relatively easy from the Table of Contents. (However, I wish all Bibles would have chapter/verse indexes as do the OSNOVA versions such as the NET bible.)
My biggest complaint of the Kindle edition is the decision to put the text of the cross references and notes after EACH CHAPTER instead of either (better) at the end of each book or (best) at the end of the Bible. Breaking up each chapter of the bible with intervening notes and cross references throws off the flow of the text itself and serves to disconnect each chapter from the next.
Still, since the NAB has not been in a digital format accessible on ereaders, this is still a great addition to the Kindle library. The price is excellent and surprisingly low for such a new release.
This edition is formatted well, has an interactive table of contents that is easy to use, and has excellent introductions to the sections and books of the Bible.
For those who may not know, this is the official edition of the Bible for American Catholics, and is the translation used in The Liturgy of the Word in the Mass.
The translation was revised to be more faithful to the original text, and yet is a very readable modern English translation (no archaic language.)
Of course, as with all Kindle books, text size is no longer a problem. You can set the font size to be what is easiest to read.
With this edition on your Kindle, computer, iPad, or phone, you need never be without access to sacred scripture.
Cons: A complaint noted from other reviewers for other bibles is being able to determine which Book of the Bible and chapter you are reading on each page. It would be helpful to the reader during study/reading. Also when you click on the letter indicating a reference, instead of taking you to the end of the chapter and the list of references, it should just take you to the referred verse itself. That would save a lot of time and energy which is a primary purpose of the kindle.
Pros: I happen to like all the notes at the end of each chapter, unlike a previous reviewer. They provide some good information and what better place to put it? Also the info at the beginning of each book helps improve understanding. The translation, as noted, is recommended by my instructors, and the modern day English which makes it easy to understand.
Definitely one to add to your collection however you study your bible.
For those of you who don't know much about the different translations of the Bible...this is a Catholic Bible that contains all 73 books. Most Protestant translations only contain 66 books after Martin Luther abandoned the books found in the Septuagint and adopted the books that came out of the Jewish Council of Jamnia (90 AD). Until the Protestant Reformation the Catholic Bible was the only edition. Bottom line...Catholics make sure you get a Catholic translation of the Bible (like this one)...Protestants should get this also to enjoy the full array of books that the Catholic Church has been using for the past 2000 years.
I was a little nervous about buying an electronic version of the Bible but after seeing how great it flows on the Kindle I'm glad I got it. There is also the added bonus of installing the Kindle Reader software on your PC and enjoying it from both devices! All this for $5.99...AWESOME!!!
