We just added .mobi format Bibles for Amazon Kindle devices and apps to our list of electronic formats that we produce, at least for the languages that Kindle supports. Between .mobi and .epub formats, we can put Bibles on almost all tablet computers, dedicated e-readers, and smart phones.
Q: What is better than a free Bible?
A: Having your own free Bible that you can give away as many times as you like without losing your own copy. This means that Bibles can spread between compatible devices like flames in a candle light service.
Q: Sounds wonderful, but does such a Bible exist?
A: Yes: digital Bibles that don't have legal and technological barriers to copying are like that. As of today, with your help and the help of assorted Bible translation agencies and Bible translators, I have posted 675 Bible translations like that.
Q: But can everyone get a digital Bible?
A: No. Just the people who have access to a smart phone, tablet, dedicated e-reader, or computer and access to either a web site, media, or other device with the Bible on it. Do you know anyone who is not on that list?
Q: Aren't all Bibles freely sharable?
A: Unfortunately not. Look at the fine print inside the front of a modern English paper Bible and see if you can find limits on number of verses that can be quoted in other works, etc. The same sorts of notices accompany most digital publications, even when they are available on a public web site. The World English Bible is one of the few exceptions.
Q: How do I get a free Digital Bible to read myself and to share?
A: Just go to http://eBible.org/epub/ and download the translations you like in the format you prefer (epub for Nook, iBooks, Gitden Reader for Kindle or iOS, etc., or .mobi for Kindle). (Please forgive the temporary, crude index. A better one is under construction.) For the World English Bible, get http://eBible.org/epub/eng-web.epub. If you got one last month, you might want an updated copy. We have improved the formatting and compatibility of all of those files in the last month.
For as the rain comes down and the snow from the sky,
and doesn’t return there, but waters the earth,
and makes it grow and bud,
and gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater;
so is my word that goes out of my mouth:
it will not return to me void,
but it will accomplish that which I please,
and it will prosper in the thing I sent it to do.
-- Isaiah 55:10-11
