Free Book (Kindle) - The Holy Bible

The Holy Bible: HCSB Digital Text Edition is free courtesy of Holman Bible Publishers.

Book Description
This text edition of the HCSB has been optimized for easy reading on digital devices. Free from the visual clutter of footnotes, cross references, and other links, this edition is fast to navigate and easy to use.

The HCSB was developed by 100 scholars and English stylists from 17 denominations, who prayerfully translated what is one of the most significant Bible translations available today. The HCSB reflects linguistic advances in vocabulary, grammar, punctuation and formatting while it retains meaningful theological terms. In the HCSB you'll find God's personal name (Yahweh), the use of "Messiah" in the New Testament, and the use of "slave" in the New Testament, just to name a few examples. Also, you'll notice the contemporary speech patterns in the HCSB mean that words like "behold" and "shall" are not used. Instead, words or phrases that are common today can be found in their place.

The HCSB employs a first-of-its kind translation philosophy known as Optimal Equivalence, which seeks to achieve an optimal balance of literary precision and emotive clarity through a comprehensive analysis of the text at every level. This process assures maximum transfer of both words and thoughts contained in the original.

It says it's free, but it seems like some part of an elaborate scam that may cost you as much as 10% of your income. I love free books, but I'd steer well clear of this one.

That's covered too, in the revision. You have to pay both.

Yep, that's what we're doing. The "tenth" for the church is "baked" into the 56% of total tax I pay. But leaving the State Church does not give me 10% less tax, as I then have to pay extra tax on the "tax deduction" gained from not paying tax to the church.
So you see, this is a lose/lose situation for the taxpayer in Norway

that's fine,

the book has a price, there is nothing in the sale of the book, on Amazon, that implies any other obligatory charge.

Yes, there's nothing wrong when you buy the book - it is only later, when you read it, that it tries to convince you that you owe money.
