I love the MacArthur Study Bible! I have it in print form, so of course I wanted it in a digital format on my Nook too. I do wish that other translations were available though, like the ESV or NASB. For the record after a quick call to my local Barnes & Noble store, though the rep was very willing to help, she referred me to customer service. I called, and John, in the Philippines, was very helpful. He came to the conclusion that it was the e-publisher who needed to address my problem and offered a complete refund. John actually downloaded the MacArthur Study Bible on his device, I walked him through the issue and he found that he had the same problem as I did. So what is the problem? The MacArthur Study Bible has over 20,000 study notes, the only reason that I bought it in the digital format was to have access to the notes on my Nook. So here is the problem, when you open up a page, the pages have highlighted links, the highlighted links take you to other pages where the study note or map or whatever is located, to get there, you touch the highlighted link and it takes you to the page where the commentary is located, in some cases thousands of pages away from the original page. You read the study note, but now, how do you get back to the original page? There is, when you touch the link and it takes you to the new page, a little tab that appears at the top/center of the Nook page that says "back", if you touch it, it takes you back to the original page, the problem is that it only appears for a few seconds, and there is no way to get it back up. So if the original page was page 1 and the study note is on page 4000 there is no way to get back to page 1 after you read the study note. If you do touch the "back" tab that pops up at the top center of the Nook screen, before it disappears, it will take you back to page 1, but it doesn't stay there long enough to read the study note. The only solution that I found, and that John in customer service agreed with, was to first "bookmark" the first page, then touch the link that takes you to the study note page, then to return back to the original page, you have to touch the center of the screen, which brings up the blue tool bar at the bottom of the page, touch the "contents" tab, touch the "bookmarks" tab, then touch the "bookmark" that takes you back to the original page. Now obviously that isn't going to be very practical with a Study Bible that has over 20,000 study notes and extras that comprise about 6000 pages! So e-publisher would you please make the "back" tab that pops up, when you are taken to the new page, stay there? Or make a way to bring it back up on the screen? The problem that that fix wouldn't address is that, on the page that you go to, that has the study notes, there are even more highlighted links that will take you to yet other pages, and so on and so on. So ultimately what is needed, is a "back" tab, or "back to the original page" tab. I would also suggest to make the e-version like the printed version, place the study notes at the bottom of the same page as the Biblical text. Regardless, make a way to get back to the original page after following a link or series of links. Also there isn't any way to tell exactly where you are in a specific book. Once your off the title page it doesn't say the name of the book any longer, only chapters, verses, page numbers and links.

It works great with the nook. Maybe those that wrote it didn't did not know how to navigate thier nook. Right now the price is reduced. it's a great deal that you don't want to pass up.

While the MacArthur NKJV Nook Version is a good useful Bible, the navigation needs work. It is too hard to return to a scripture verse and search verses and return to where you started... Especially hard to do in church. I really prefer the Hard Copy... Sorry, but you asked my opinion.

This is the most poorly designed of any ebook I've come across, and that's a shame because MacArthur's commentary is a wonderful study tool to have. The people who rated this good and persuaded me to purchase this should have their heads examined. The interface is clunky. You are far better off with one of the free versions available!

This Bible is fairly easy to navigate on my NOOK. I had read so many reviews of Bibles that were not NOOK-friendly. This one is. This Bible contains more than 7,000 pages! Therefore, it always takes a few seconds to open to the book or chapter you're looking for. Only 2,000 or so pages of this Bible are actually Scripture. The other 5,000+ pages are extras. While extras are always nice in a Bible (dictionary, concordance, maps, applications, etc.) there are SO MANY extras included in this Bible that, unless you are a serious Bible scholar, you may feel overwhelmed.

I would highly recommend this Bible. It is a wonderful edition and the commentaries are rich. Please note that the sample one may download does not allow one to access the chapters, thereby giving no idea of the full Bible! It is worth every bit of the $31 price.

Locks up constantly and I have to force quit. Only thing in my library that does not work.

I sampled as many NKJV bibles as I could find for use on the Nook Touch, and this one is by far the best. Navigation to book and chapter is four clicks (Contents->New/OldTestament->Book->Chapter). Super easy to navigate between verses and notes. Since they are stored in different sections, you can read straight through the verses, or straight through the notes, or use the cross-links at nearly every verse to jump between the two. Cross-references work similarly. Click a verse's cross-reference, and it jumps to a screen with all related verses. Click on any of the linked verses and it takes you there. From that verse, either click the 'back' button (not as useful), or re-click the cross-reference and navigate your way back. My favorite, though, is in the Gospels: At the top of each subsection (e.g. each parable, miracle, sermon, etc), there is a direct link to the equivalent subsection in the other Gospel books. One side-note: The latest update for the Nook Touch changed the navigation slightly. The "Contents" button no longer goes to the beginning of the Table Of Contents (ToC), which was annoying in this case. So instead, I just bookmarked the Old Testament and New Testament sections of the ToC, which accomplishes the same thing.

I have many study Bibles, however I find that I turn to the MacArthur Study Bible for John MacArthur's insight every time. His clarification and insight on scripture is unmatched in IMHO. I use this Bible for all my studies and carry it as my main Bible to church. (I have the eBook as well as leather bound version). The eBook version allows me to quickly move from study notes and cross references to main text.

Disappointed can't access the study notes and comments in printed version...don't purchase digital format...not worth the cost

This is by far the easiest (to navigate) version of the Bible that I have seen to date! You can select the book and verse, but you need to "flip" to the correct verse. It also has several reference sections that you can use as study aids. Reference scriptures are available also. This is a must have if you own the Nook Color! BTW, it is the New King James Version. It reads slightly easier than King James, but does not differ greatly...

I¿m not sure it gets any better than this: The Holy Bible rendered in the readable yet reverent New King James Version ¿ with study notes provided by the inimitable John MacArthur. He has included a number of excellent articles on subjects ranging from how the Bible came into being to how to recognize genuine saving faith. And he provides sound advice on how best to study Scripture ¿ critical for someone who no longer has all the time in the world left.

MacArthur is the first pastor/teacher I've found who teaches like our deceased SS teacher. They are amazingly alike, and our teacher had hardly any formal education...but he read all world history, and Jewish history, and knew the Bible and it's people. I have read the new Scofield three times...and now I'm reading is like having a commentary included!

The Bible does not change in its message but the MacArthur Bible opens your eyes to what the message REALLY is. If you're hungry for the word but having a hard time being nourished by it, this is a Bible you should very seriously and strongly consider!

Very easy to understand translation that retains the cadence of the original KJV. I love it. The study helps, etc., make it the perfect E-version of the Holy Bible to own

Best book ever published!!! The MacArthur Study Bible is the greatest single-volume book in the history of the written word! John MacArthur has been pastor of Grace Community Church since 1969. During that time, he has preached verse-by-verse through the entire New Testament, as well as significant portions of the Old Testament. The essence of John MacArthur's credibility as a teacher and spiritual leader is his unswerving devotion to the Divine inspiration (authorship), absolute inerrancy, and complete authority of the Bible. Since the Bible is the true and infallible written revelation of God to mankind, Dr. MacArthur has said: "The only logical response to inerrant Scripture is to preach it expositionally. By that, I mean preaching in such a way that the meaning of the Bible passage is presented entirely and exactly as it was intended by God." He is manifestly committed to declaring "the whole purpose of God" (Acts 20:27), and yet equally determined "not to exceed what is written" (2 Corinthians 4:6). This honest, forthright handling of Scripture renders MacArthur's work refreshingly free of the distortions and outright oppositions of the ear-tickling theology demanded by fallen human preference--which is so often shamelessly catered to and pandered to by the Lord's foes and friends alike! In this study bible (and in any of MacArthur's books, commentaries, and sermons), Holy Scripture is always handled with credence as trustworthy, dynamic, living truth that has urgent and immediate application for every reader--as you would expect of words written by Almighty God Himself. According to the "Grace to You" ministry website, the MacArthur Study Bible is an "al-in-one spiritual library [which] contains John's personal study notes below the full-length Bible text. Virtually every Scripture has a matching study note with detailed information, explanations, and helpful insight. The MacArthur Study Bible...can transform your personal time in God's word by clarifying difficult passages, bringing unseen cultural and historical details to life, and helping you understand and apply biblical truth." The MacArthur Study Bible has nearly 25,000 study notes buttressed with 80,000 cross-references, and it is also rich with other valuable features, including complete introductions to each book of the Bible, a treatment of key historical, political, and religious developments in the intertestamental period, several full-color maps, over 140 two-color maps, charts, timelines, and illustrations, informative background articles like "Introduction to the Bible" and "How We Got the Bible," an overview of theology, an index of key Bible doctrines and where to find passages relating to them, an extensive concordance, and more. On every page of this magnificent resource, the meaning of the Word of God is faithfully explained with clarity and concision that will readily appeal to the most serious Bible student, and yet the content is not overly technical so as to be too laborious for a layman. Not only the study bible, but ALL of John MacArthur's books and sermons are valuable for their forthright, straightforward proclamation of the truth of God, including the one true gospel of salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone (apart from any false considerations of human merit, Isaiah 64:6)--which is mankind's only hope of escaping God's righteous judgment against the sin we are all guilty of committing against Him.

I have this Bible as a book and I love it. It is great to have reference to the harder verses *Sam*

I have the print versio of this and i have this on Kindle. The highlughting is a little wonky in that it is easy to pull up the notes or flip the page on accident when trying to highlight something. Otherwise, no complaints about this bible. The notes are great and I like the NKJV. When you look around at other bible apps, they don't allow highlighting the notes. So the fact that I can with Nook and Kindle makes these the best options for digital bibles. Kindle is the King for ease of highlighting though.

Overall I really enjoy the layout and ease of use.  This has good footnotes on a lot of things.  I do not agree with everything in the footnotes, but it is all orthodox stuff.  So it just like there is no such thing as a perfect study Bible.  I would recommend this to anyone.
