My wife uses the Kindle reader and enjoys it, especially when traveling. Books may be downloaded as less cost than the bound volumes in advance.
First, I want to mention to current Kindle users that the NIV Archaeological Study Bible is available for the Kindle for $3.99. Yes, that was what I paid for it this morning. The cheapest hard cover edition is available for $31.49 at Amazon. Use this link:
NIV Archaeological Study Bible: An Illustrated Walk Through Biblical History and Culture
If you have a Kindle you just order in the usual way for your device. This may be a limited time offer. I suggest you act quickly. The archaeological and historical notes in this Bible are extremely helpful. I have been using the hard back edition for a few years.
Kindle has two devices now. The Kindle Wi-Fi reader is only $139. Order from this link:
Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Wi-Fi, Graphite, 6″ Display with New E Ink Pearl Technology
The Kindle DX Wireless reading device may be ordered from this link for $189:
Kindle 3G Wireless Reading Device, Free 3G + Wi-Fi, 3G Works Globally, Graphite, 6″ Display with New E Ink Pearl Technology
The NIV Archaeological Study Bible has its own web site here. Check the Gallery. Many of the photos are too small to be useful in presentations, many of the MAPS are nice. I look forward to using the NIV Archaeological Study Bible on my tours to Egypt and Israel next year — assuming my wife will loan her Kindle to me!
Many thanks to Todd Bolen for calling this to our attention. He says,
You don’t need to have a Kindle to read it, as software is now available for the PC, Mac, BlackBerry, iPad, and iPhone.
Please don’t ask me how to do this. I do not have time to do it for you, and I do not have an office in India.
