Officially known as the "Revised Version, Standard American Edition", this translation was released in 1901 and rapidly became the standard bible translation in seminaries, earning it the unofficial moniker "The Standard Version". It has now been reworked - Old and New Testaments - for the Kindle by Theospace.
Theospace works with some of the major Bible Societies in producing their ebibles, and thought we'd bring the best of our technology to some well known, and well loved, public domain translations, including this one.
Making the bible easy and fast to use, adding in various notes and glossaries, without making the text cluttered, are hallmarks of our approach.
This version contains :
- The text of the American Standard Version bible. Any additional content is hidden behind hyperlinks so as not to distract from the text itself.
- an overview page per book containing a link to each chapter, and to the index.
Locating a passage is much faster than ebooks without this feature.
- two indexes. On the non-tactile e-readers, several clicks are required to get to the main index. We've created a second one, accessible from each book overview, so you can get around the Bible faster, spending less time clicking, and more time reading.
- smartphone-adapted navigation. Each verse has a hyperlink to the start of the chapter - useful for quickly checking the context, or for then clicking through to the book's menu.
You'll be surprised how useful this can be on a small screen!
