Comments Off on ESV Study Bible available for Kindle

According to the ESV blog, Crossway has released the ESV Study Bible for the Kindle electronic book reader. In keeping with Amazon’s attempt to keep Kindle book pricing low, the ESV Study Bible can be purchased and downloaded for less than $10! This looks like an introductory promotion until June, when the price increases to the princely sum of $14.99 (compared to at least $40 for the hardback).

I have not yet picked up a copy of the ESV Study Bible and I have to confess to being moderately curious as to how the format works on the Kindle. I would expect a large amount of clicking to access verse notes, as with any Kindle-formatted Bible, but the additional articles and maps would be additional challenges to access. The full-color illustrations would definitely lose some impact with the Kindle’s greyscale presentation.

** Update ** Crossway has made the Gospel of Luke available as their free “sample” download on Amazon – I’ve downloaded that and will take a closer look at how the notes work.
