Electronic Bibles?
« on: August 12, 2013, 07:23:50 PM »
Is anyone familiar with an eBible book or an electronic bible of some sort? Not a laptop, but some sort of an electronic eBible that:
- can be bookmarked?
- is not hard on the eyes?
- has references that can be clicked on?
- comes in at least two different versions i.e. KJV and something else?
- has a built-in Greek and Hebrew dictionary where a word can be clicked on for a deeper interpretation?
- etc.

Sounds like you might want to look into a tablet of some kind. Doesn't have to be an ipad as android devices are much cheaper (assuming you trust google lol) there are several good apps that do what you're looking for. I know the nook can do these things and although I've never used one I'm sure the kindle can also.

Yes, that's what I was thinking. I couldn't remember the names (nook and kindle).

Nook is at a very good price right now. There are advantages to both but I choose the nook because it will read more file formats natively. For instance the Kindle (last I knew) won't handle a pdf file without some kind of conversion. With the nook you just slap a pdf file on and it will automatically be able to read it. The same goes for epub books. There are many good free books to be downloaded out there but the majority is in epub format. Again the kindle doesn't natively read those.

Excellent information. Do you know of a particular bible that can be downloaded into Nook or Kindle where we can click on the references and ***POOF*** it will take us there? Sort of like having a bunch of hot links everywhere...

Good question. I'll will try to find out. I'm also trying to find a Bible app that has strongs definitions available in the same manner. I've never taken greek or hebrew I find that looking up strongs definitions sometimes help.

Exactly. We're on the same page. Click on a word and get the Hebrew or Greek definition of the word. Hotlinks everywhere!

Haven't found any Bible apps with strongs but I did find one with cross-references. It's called "Logos". However, it has a downside. It appears that you have be on wifi to use it. The other apps will let you download Bible versions for offline reading. I didn't say a way to do that with this one. :(  Hopefully I"m wrong.

Forgiveness is available until we get to eternity and then our eternal fate is sealed. Right now, people are free to sin and repent; but there is no forgiveness of sin for the damned in hell.

JUST A THINK ABOUT IT: Will you embrace the full meaning of Christmas? Jesus didn't die just so you could go to heaven. He came to give you life - His life; an abundant life free from guilt, condemnation, and slavery to both sins and religion. He came to bring a grace revolution to the world and tha
