Holy Bible, English Standard Version,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Holy Bible, English Standard Version (with Cross-References): Old and New Testaments (Kindle Edition)
Usually I read the NIV, but was persuaded to down load ESV on to my Kindle, because a Pastor friend reccomended it, and because its "Free"
The NIV is a little more readable - the text flows better, but the ESV is a closer translation. Since none of us are of the time when the Bible was written, and very few of us understable the original languages, it is helpful to have the Bible in different translations.
I bought my Kindle primarily to have the Bible on it, making transport of the Word of God, more compact. As I get older, larger print is more of a necessity, and in a printed version, larger print means a larger book to carry, but with Kindle, I can have larger print, without more bulk.
