Book Reviews


Tad Bit Disappointed3 star

Downloaded the ESV Bible and I thought it would be great. Not so much: Problems with preferences. I cannot get the words of Jesus to show up in red. I cannot get the cross references to hide when I want them to hide. I cannot get the cross reference pop up box to show when I want it. The cross reference goes to the book of Leviticus most of the time when I wan to cross reference. The above comments in my reading with a sea of blue links that I don’t really care for and I have no way to correct that. If I have not installed the ESV Bible correctly on my iPad which is running the most current update, please let me know what I need to do to correct these issues.35


You can’t blame God4 star

Many people say when they were younger they went to church and the people just weren’t nice. Some people say they were hurt. But honestly there are many churches out there that just have a name and don’t really follow. You can’t blame God for something people did. He gave us an option and many choose to walk away from God. I hope you will choose to read this and realize that God loves you weather people do or not. God loves you!45

Book of Life5 star

I love having the book preloaded in my pocket. It’s always good to have a way to reference chapters, re-read my favorite stories and share the gospel with others. Thanks for making this book free.55


God is the true god5 star

There is no other god before him or beside him. He has no evil and is righteous and holy. We should all be Christians.55

Preferences don’t work3 star

I like the translation fine but when you set preferences for how to view the text- verse numbers , footnotes etc- it doesn’t keep them. Why not?35


The Bible is the truth.5 star

The bad reviewing people are idiots. 1.God is not a “character” he is real 2. Doesn’t matter if you don’t like the story. 3. Can’t rewrite the Bible. 4.Written by God at the beginning of the universe55
