I have several Bible translations on my Kindle (NIV, NET, ESV, NKJV) and I waited for months for the publisher (Thomas Nelson) to finally release the Kindle edition of the NKJV. I went so far as to write to the publisher and was told that they were taking time to make sure they got it just right. The other translations have the table of contents setup so that at the beginning of each Bible book the chapters have links so that you can jump to them. With the NKJV Kindle edition there are no chapter links so to get to Isaiah Chapter 50 you have to page through until you get there. To make matters worse, you can't tell what chapter you are in except on the first page of each. (see the NET Bible which has chapter and verse notation.

This NKJV for the Kindle was recently updated in October 2009 to fix some of the formatting issues present in the previous version as well as enabling chapter navigation. One word of caution regarding chapter navigation is that it works very well for me with the Old Testament but not so well with the New Testament (would take too long to explain). At any rate, I use this Kindle version as my daily reader and use 4 book marks to pick up where I last left off: 1. In the Old Testament 2. Book of Psalms. 3. Book of Proverbs. 4. New Testament.

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.

Each page of this Bible contains three columns of very small print. I can't even imagine trying to read it. I am extremely disappointed.

As one who has numerous bibles, I read and study from various versions including the NASB, NIV, TNIV, NRSV, ESV, HSCB, and the NKJV. Generally, for easy reading I go to the NIV or its updated TNIV. But for really serious study I go to the NASB and the NKJV.

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.

For those of you who don't know, this is God's second novel after the Old Testament. It's a marked improvement, in my opinion. He got rid of a lot of his previous angst and scorn, and has really begun to show some of the maturity present in his later works. He's become a much more loving and kind God, and, noticeably, he doesn't throw nearly as many tantrums as he did in the first book.

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.
