This review is from: NIV Bible (Kindle Edition)
I have been using the 2011 revision of the New International Version since last November via the web, and have had printed copies since May 2011. It is a wonderful translation, treading a good line between readability and keeping true to the original language. Now it's on my Kindle and can go with me absolutely everywhere and be read anywhere. My only gripe with e-books of Bible versions is that few have good navigation, though the finder feature in this does help. Many books we read cover to cover, but the Bible isn't one of those. Most of the time we want to navigate to a particular chapter and verse of a particular book.
The Kindle is a great asset, I have over 100 books on mine - most are theology books and Bible commentaries to support my theology studies and my training as a Methodist Local Preacher. Its usefulness cannot be understated. My bookshelves were full and overflowing, but my Kindle has prevented the crisis worsening.
