among books and chapters. It is a pleasure to read from it!
This Kindle edition has hot linked cross reference verses that are easy to use. Just touch the underlined superscript letter where a cross reference occurs. There appear not to be many cross references, except that the usual scheme in the 1984 print editions is that the couple of references given are to lead you to other references that lead you to still more references. So, do not stop with just the first reference to which you are taken.
Navigation is different from the usual list of books with a list of hot-linked chapters at the opening page for each book. The New Testament section of the navigation page lumps the Gospels and Acts together as "history books." But, getting to one of the later Gospels does not mean thumbing through every page. Just make a long swipe from the bottom of the screen upward on the Kindle Touch and suddenly you are at the index page for the next Gospel. Unfortunately, this is not explained for the user anywhere. I am not sure how navigation works on other Kindle models. As a backup plan, I began at Genesis and recorded the Location number for the index page with pen and ink. Then I swiped to get to the opening of Exodus and I recorded its Location number. When I had finished all of the books of the Bible and the Apocrypha, I made a MS Word document with all of this information and mailed it to my Kindle e-mail address for loading onto my Kindle. I can always look up a particular book and enter its Location number.
The opening page of each book does not give chapters, but theme headings. So, Matthew 5-7 (Sermon on the Mount) is one unit. The user must thumb through each of these sections until the desired passage is on the screen, but the user is thumbing through only a couple of chapters. It is different, but it works. It is possible to go directly to a chapter in a book. Search for the two letter abbreviation used for the book followed without a space by the number of the chapter. So, I wanted to find something in Mark 5. I searched for "Mk5" and the Kindle went right to it.
I was surprised that the new "Rechtschreibung" from 1996 has not been adopted in the Kindle edition. So, you will find ß for ss in the new system.
When I studied German in college I believed I would never need more than the ability to read a few lines. I did not bother learning the gender of each noun well. But, now I find myself in a position to give sermons in German, and did so twice during the last eight months. I have found I can touch a word in this Bibel text and the on-board German to German dictionary on my Kindle brings up the usual information found in a dictionary, including the gender. This process is much faster on the Kindle than it is with a paper dictionary, and I am using it to check the gender of just about every noun, even though I have learned quite a few of them over the years. This Bibel is helping me fill some voids in the German I learned.
