I just realized that the stock car racing Bible linked earlier is one of the few ebook editions of the 1984 NIV left available (nearly all ebook NIVs are the 2011 edition) and is still $6.99. It has some racing-related articles and pictures at the beginning, but is otherwise just the Bible text and translation notes.

For anyone that didn't know there was a difference, the 2011 edition was updated with (among other things) gender-neutral language. Romans 1:13, for example, now begins "I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters..." whereas before 2011, Paul was just worried about the "brothers."

I bought mine from B&N, so if you get one from somewhere else, you might want to check the free sample to make sure that the list of NIV copyrights ends in 1984 rather than 2011.

I believe the NIV Archaeological Study Bible is another version with the 1984 NIV text but it is not discounted at $24.99 in the US.

That one's been on my wishlist for two years and the price hasn't budged.

I spoke too soon. Just the ESV Study Bible ebook is $29.99, but the Web App is now packaged with the ebook as well, and that is $4.99. Customer service verified for me that it has the same download access (DRM-Free, future updates, both epub and mobi files) as the regular ebook product. I then bought it and can confirm it firsthand. There are several other Web App + Ebook combos right now (though apparently not on sale).

Actually, that sounds like it might be the best bargain if you want access to the web app. The ebook versions from all the vendors you listed have a disclaimer at the bottom: "Please note this edition does not come with free access to the Online ESV Study Bible resources." Apparently if you buy a print version, it includes a code for free access to the online resources. If the web app is the online resources it mentions, then this is the way to go.

Edit: Just saw the note at the bottom which indicates this IS the online version you get free with a printed version: "About ESV Study Bible Online - The ESV Study Bible Online is now available as a module for ESVBible.org. Free with the purchase of any print edition, the ESV Online Study Bible is also available for purchase separately."

Yeah, I thought that the product descriptions were less than clear about exactly what is included for what price. I used the customer service chat widget on the website to ask for clarification.

The LDS (Mormon) Church has updated its ebook Scriptures. The PDFs are now electronically typeset rather than scanned, so they render faster and the epub/mobi versions now have embedded links to footnotes. They're all DRM-free and free of cost.

There's another interesting translation, The Jubilee Bible 2000, available for free at B&N, Kobo and Amazon. If you're searching, beware that B&N has a second link to (apparently) the same book for $5.99 instead of free.

Quote:
In the Jubilee Bible 2000, the usage and context tends to define each key word so you won’t need to depend on theological dictionaries or reference materials. Careful attention has been made to properly translate the first usage of each key word, and through to the last occurrence. Then, as the word makes its way across the Old Testament and if we make the correct match with the corresponding Greek word in the New Testament, an amazing pattern emerges. The Jubilee Bible is the only translation we know of today that has each unique Hebrew word matched and mated to a unique English word so that the usage (number of occurrences and number of verses where the word occurs) sets forth both a very meaningful number pattern and a complete definition of what God means by each word.

I've had the Amplified Bible on my want-list and $2.99 is a good price to finally pick one up.

You're welcome! And the Zondervan edition has much better formatting than Lockman's own.

Before buying, I sampled both Zondervan's and Lockman's and Zondervan's formatting is definitely better.

A few Zonderkidz Bibles are on sale for $3.99.

NIV Discoverer's Bible B&N Amazon ($3.79)

NIrV Discoverer's Bible for Early Readers B&N Amazon

The Great Outdoors Bible for Kids (NIV) B&N Amazon

I flipped through the samples and it looks like the "kids" content is a small amount of artwork in the first two and just the cover of The Great Outdoors Bible.

As far as apps there is also e-sword. It's for computer rather than an ebook
E-sword
There is an online version too. E-sword onine It doesn't cost anything (though one add on does) and they have windows, linux and Mac versions.
