The Holy Scriptures, God's Word, is worth reading.

I've been told this more times that I can remember that the Bible, God's Word, is hard to read because it's boring. I beg to differ.

I've been told this more times that I can remember that the Bible, God's Word, is hard to read because it's boring. I beg to differ.

Start reading the Gospel according to John first. You will learn about the Light of the world...Jesus Christ the Son of God - the God man -- fully human and fully God. God's redemptive plan for our salvation is put into motion. Then go back to the beginning.

Genesis, the book of beginnings, is the first book of the Old Testament. Genesis records how everything began. In this book, you'll meet the first couple, Adam and Eve, who were married by God Himself. This happy couple had it all: each other and a beautiful garden to live in and work. Everything was perfect until the deceiver came along. This deceiver, Satan, tempted Eve to eat the forbidden fruit and that started a chain reaction of failure and heartache that has lasted to this day and will continue until Christ returns.

The Old Testament tells the history of the world, the birth of the nation Israel, the major prophets (like Moses and Elijah), the minor prophets and a book of Psalms (songs, poetry, etc.) and Proverbs (wisdom from King Solomon), who was the wisest man on earth at that time. Ecclesiates was Solomon's journal, in which Solomon focuses on the meaning of life.

The New Testament focuses on the four gospels according to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. The books of Acts focuses on the apostles who set up the churches and introduces us to Paul, who in his early years persecuted the church. Paul was a murdered, but Jesus Christ changed him. Paul, under the Direction of the Holy Spirit, penned most of the New Testament letters.

Read God's wonderful Word and you'll never be sorry. Below are some study guides I recommend for every new believer.

do not buy

Unless you like to scroll through the entire bible, do not buy this version of the bible. You cannot just search and open one the books. I wouldn't even give this 1/2 a star, but the only choice was 1 through 5.

    Too hard to use on the nook.

    While I absolutely love the NKJV bible text, the ebook version of it was mostly unusable given the nook's navigation method. Trying to navigate 1000s of chapter headings from the touchscreen is unwielding. Bible reading & study tends to be non linear and the nook doesn't handle this so well yet :(

    more from this reviewer

    I hope they fix this.

    The nook is great for anything that is read EXCLUSIVELY front to back, but they really need to improve the search feature here, even letting you search by book , THEN chapter, as it is, this is totally useless until fixed.

    New King James version

    It is almost impossible to navigate around this ebook. Scrolling takes forever. Its only use, as far as I can tell, will be to read from start to finish. Not a bad idea, but not what I had in mind when I bought it as an ebook.

    I totally agree with previous review. There does not seem to be a way to navigate to find a certain scripture

    Not user friendly

    When I try to highlight a word, I activate the reference instead and it is annoying. Also once i activate a reference i have to go back immediately or i lose my place in the Bible and have to go back to the table of contents. Frustrating.

    Waaaaay to slow!!!!!!!!!!!

    This was not for me, I ordered for my pandigital novel ereader and it is just to slow, also to do highlighting it wouldn't highlight all the time I tried. I don't know if this would be faster on a nook.

    Duh

    How many of you actually read the operating instructions that came with your nook??? Perhaps read the instructions and then, if you can comprehend, you will learn to navigate and use the nook features.
    Also, if you read all the terrible reviews then why do you still buy the book ??

    Poetic, but not the most accurate...

    King James, New King James, both are classic and elegant, and have their place in devotional reading, but neither uses the full canon of available Greek and Hebrew manuscripts. For study, you will be better served by the NASB (1995 Update) or NRSV.
