iPad / Kindle / eBook News and Resources

Here are a couple of useful links I found over at Justin Taylor’s excellent blog, Between Two Worlds. There should be some helpful stuff here for studying the Bible using electronic resources.

The iPad, the Kindle, and the Future of Books

Share your NET Bible story

Those of us who are regular and happy users of the NET Bible will be interested to see the following post on Michael Burer’s blog. If you haven’t come across this translation yet, I warmly commend it. It’s a fresh and original translation and its extensive footnotes are particularly helpful for pastors or students undertaking exegetical study. I hope to write a full review of the forthcoming version 2.0 when it comes out. (See my review a while ago of version 1). Read more »
