When I need to study something in depth, I either go to (blueletterbible dot org) or pull out one of my leather bound Bibles.
Don't at all be afraid to get this bible if you are going to use it as your daily reader. Again, not so good for in depth bible study unless you get really, really good at using the kindle's search feature.
If you need a kindle Bible with better chapter navigation...get one of these: NKJV New Spirit Filled Life Bible or KJV: Holy Bible - The Illustrated King James Bible (King James Version, KJV): The Old & New Testaments, Deuterocanonical literature, Glossary and Suggested Reading. Illustrated by Gustave Dore
I love the accuracy of the word-for-word translations which the NASB and the NKJV provides. Though a little more difficult at times to understand, you know they're accurate and true to the original languages.
The huge advantage of this NKJV Large Print UltraSlim Bible is its large print! It is superior to all the other bibles I have maybe with the exception of the Zondervan NIV Wide-Margin Bible. Therefore, for someone like me who is over 60 and wears bifocals, this is a huge plus!
The only thing I don't like about the NKJV Large Print UltraSlim Bible is the typesetting of the words of Jesus. They're printed in red ink of which the coloring is inconsistent from page to page and for some reason does not line up exactly with the rest of the verse(s). But then you have to realize you're not paying a whole lot for this Bible!
This Bible has 1200 pages which includes a 66-page concordance. This is not a study Bible meaning it doesn't have study notes or reference verses. However, being true to the NKJV it includes footnotes where it varies with the Critical and Majority Texts.
As others before me have commented, this Bible is very light, being about 1-inch thick, making it very easy to take just about anywhere. Sure, the cover isn't high quality, but the binding is excellent and I find the Bible to easily lay flat regardless of what page I'm on. That for me is a huge plus!
One more thing, there is very little in the way of margins in this Bible at 3/8ths of an inch all around.Read more ›
That said, there is still vast room for improvement. Plot wise, there isn't really much suspense, and the story can be incredibly repetitive. In like four chapters, he just rewords the same basic story over and over again. To top that off, he puts those chapters one right after the other. Like we wouldn't notice! I like the whole Jesus character, but let's face it, the whole good guy martyr thing has been done before. There was no need to devote so much of the book to that guy.
If you're really looking for a good God read, check out the Koran or the Book of Mormon. They're much more polished. Plus, the storytelling in the Book of Mormon is wild. Some people say it goes too far and point to it as evidence that God's over the hill, but I beg to differ. Just read it. God's like a genius or something. I mean, magic spectacles! Tell me that isn't awesome. I don't know how he dreams up some of this crap.
