Give diligence, reader (I exhort thee) that thou come with a pure mind, and, as the Scripture saith, with a single eye, unto the words of health and of eternal life, by the which (if we repent and believe them) we are born anew, created afresh, and enjoy the fruits of the blood of Christ. Which blood crieth not for vengeance, as the blood of Abel, but hath purchased life, love, favour, grace, blessing, and whatsoever is promised in the Scriptures, to them that believe and obey God, and stondeth between us and wrath, vengeance, curse, and whatsoever the Scripture threateneth against the unbelievers and disobedient, which resist, and consent not in their hearts to the law of God, that it is right, wholy, just, and ought so to be.
Mark the plain and manifest places of the Scriptures, and in doubtful places see thou add no interpretation contrary to them; but (as Paul saith) let all be conformable and agreeing to the faith.

Of course I haven't read it all the way through. My reason for getting it was to compare to what we have now. As far as it working on my Nook, it works fine
Don't get this book if you do not have a good understanding of scripture. (It IS free, however) It is written in VERY "Olde" English, but one can figure it out phonetically. I think it's a hoot! And Tyndale is a very respected translator. I'm enjoying it very much!
I love the way it is spelled out,useful when wanting to know what a photo copy say's.
