I have previously bought, read, and actually finished The One Year Bible - NIV Kindle version. It was not easy and I did not particularly enjoy the process. I am a husband, a father, and an engineer; I have real life going on every single day that competes for devotional time. I often had to double back to catch up a week or more of missed reading. But, having it broken down into daily readings by date did make it possible to complete. Having it accessible on my Kindle reader device and my iPhone also made it possible to compete. And again, I did actually finish it.
So, our church recently switched to NLT across the board, so I bought this Kindle version. I have read it enough to comment that it functions as adequately as the NIV version. You can search the text for keywords, you can jump right to the date you need given the Table of Contents. That is what you should expect from an e-book and the rating should probably be 3-1/2 stars, but I rounded up since I actually did finish in one year.
I don't think the publisher had much luck optimizing the graphics for the Kindle; but the illustrated version is the same price as the non-illustrated version, so consider it a free upgrade. The illustrations are relatively small banners at the start of each daily reading; I mostly used them to notice where each day started and stopped.
There is an 'Engage' passage highlighted for each day, but this too is a mini-banner that floats within the text (usually just before the passage). It's not a hyperlink that you can click on to view the entire passage on one page, just a banner. I found these banners distracting and eventually trained myself to ignore them entirely; I was reading all the text anyway.
Also, the Bible text includes references that are actually hyperlinked. Clicking on them takes you to a mostly blank page with reference text presented. You then have to click the back button to continue reading. Some kind of floatover text would have much less disruptive, in my opinion.
The One Year concept is good and the Kindle version is adequate, but it seems like lots of potential formatting was left for future releases. I REALLY wish the publisher released interactive reading so I could hear professional narration while the text highlighted itself. I would easily give that 5 stars, if offered.
In summary, if you really want to read the Bible in a year, give this a try; but know that in the end it is simply a matter self discipline. Fall.. get back up. Fall... get back up. Fall behind... catch back up (try reading two days worth each day during the week, three per day on the weekend.). As long as you don't give up you haven't failed; and there is no prize for finishing exactly on time. Good luck with your devotional time and good luck reading the entire Bible.
Follow the steps of good men instead, and stay on the paths of the righteous.
So follow the steps of the good, and stay on the paths of the righteous.
Also owning the Catholic and compact KJV versions, I'm a fan of The One Year Bible format of including OT/NT/Prov/Ps (plus Deuterocanonical in the Catholic version) per day since it gives a good change of gears that you can keep track of for casual reading instead of having to use multiple bookmarks. I'm hoping they come out with a compact NKJV soon, or an updated NLT compact.
