I have just purchased the Kindle edition of the New International Version (NIV) Bible and I must say I'm impressed. Don't get me wrong as far a ebooks go its not perfect. You still can't search BOOK:ChapterVerse, eg, John3:16. What you have now though is finder links and chapter links within each book. There is NO table of contents. Pressing right or lift on the d-pad takes you forward or back a book making jumping around the 66 books easier.
When you first enter the book you are presented with "Welcome to the Bible [Finder]", followed with the intro blurb to the NIV. Clicking on [Finder] takes you to a page containing all the links to all the books. They are displayed horizontally and not vertically like in other ebook bibles. Below the book links are further links to "Welcome to the Bible", "The Bible at a Glance", "People of the Bible", Well-known events in the Bible", "Well-known events in the Life of Jesus", Selected parables of Jesus", "Selected miracles of Jesus", "Help and Guidance", "Reading Guide", "About the NIV (Preface)", "Tables of weights and measures", "Bible Guide" and "Copyright Information"
When you select a book to read there is a [Bookname][<][>][Finder] Link above every chapter.
Overall for the price I think this is a great Bible ebook. It has solved some of the navigation issues that are prevalent in ebook bibles and I only hope that as publisher get use to producing ebooks of this nature that they improve on the getting-around-it bit.
Enjoy and God Bless!
