I have the Nook Touch, so I don't know if Amazon carries it too, but I have The Catholic Holy Bible - Chuch Authorized Douay-Rheims Version.It has a really good table of contents that makes it really easy to navigate.

I deleted the others I downloaded and kept only the Ignatius RSV-CE, the only one I can easily navigate.

thanks. It didn't get great reviews on Amazon, so I wasn't sure. Maybe the reviews were older versions that have been improved.

I use the Ignatius Bible(RSV-2CE) it is a good text and is hyper-linked for easy access.
I would recommend it

I use a Kindle, Kindle software on the Android, and Kindle software on the PC.

I can say from experience that both the Ignatius RSV 2CE and Ignatius Catholic Study Bible New Testament are fairly easy to navigate.

Stay away from the Concordance on the Kindle though. I found it unusable in that format. However, the printed version is well worth the $$$.

The Ignatius Catholic Study Bible. It is the RSV CE. It is only NT however. But it has some excellent notes by Scott Hahn and easily navigable even on the Kindle. A touchscreen is easier however.

Do you have a link to "Ignatius Catholic Study Bible New Testament"? I can't seem to find it on Amazon's Kindle store. I can just find Ignatius Study Bible's for individual books of the NT only.

If you go to the Ignatius Press website, you can download it to your kindle from there. Well, you may have to download it to your computer first and transfer the file, which is a little bit of a hassle, but I have it on my Nook and I think it is worth it. The link I provided should take you directly to it.

I think I will buy it from Ignatius's site. It says:

This edition does not contain study questions, or the concordance.

Do you know how to download the concordance? I can't find it as a separate product on their site.

I don't. They have a link to download the study questions, but I haven't found the concordance yet either. I don't know how the kindle works, but if it has a search function, you may be able to just search for a passage that way.

I have this version which great. Easy to jump directly to any verse once you get the abbreviations down:

http://www.amazon.com/Kindle-Catholi...2230063&sr=1-1

And the RSV-CE New Testament Study Bible

What device are you using to read this? The description says "Many features of this publication will not work on Kindle 1, software Kindles such as Kindles for PC, iPad, iPhone, Blackberry or Android".

I would be reading this using the Kindle app on my Android. So I wonder if one of the "many features" not available is Direct Verse Jump.....
