Christian Retailing passes on the good news.
Zondervan is reporting more than 7,000 free downloads of the Today’s New International Version (TNIV) Kindle edition in the first two weeks since the company began offering the digital Bible version April 4. The promotion will continue through June.
Compatible with Amazon’s Kindle book reader, the digital TNIV has risen to No. 36 on the Amazon Kindle charts, followed at No. 37 by Crossway Books & Bibles’ English Standard Version Bible–also a free download. Baker Publishing Group is also offering the Bible in God’s Word Translation as a free download.
Crossway has also promoted its ESV Study Bible with a special price of $9.99 in the Kindle store. Company officials told Christian Retailing that the digital Bible version had reached No. 1 on the Kindle chart since its release.
If you download the Kindle app for your iPhone, you can access these on your iPhone as well. I don’t own a Kindle, so I use my iPhone exclusively to read these free downloads. I believe this will also work for the iPod Touch, but I’m not sure. Can someone with an iPod Touch let me know?
