Good news: We’ve released a significant update for the ESV Study Bible, Kindle Edition, and it includes a feature that allows you to quickly navigate to any verse.
If you own a previous version of the ESV Study Bible, Kindle Edition, you’ll want to replace it with the new file; you may have to go to Amazon.com’s “Manage Your Kindle” page to reinstall it. Please note that because this is an entirely new file, any notes and highlighting that you’ve made on an earlier version will be lost.
To quickly access to a verse, first open up the ESV Study Bible and click the “menu” button, and then the “index” option. Then start typing the book (using 2- or 3-letter abbreviations) and the chapter and the verse (each separated by spaces). Then click on the “find” button. That’s it!
You can read more detailed navigation instructions in the “How to Use the ESV Study Bible, Kindle Edition” section of the eBook, which you access by going to “Menu > Go To > Beginning.”
This may be a good time to also update your Kindle operating system; you can find the latest Kindle OS on Amazon’s site.
Note: The new navigation feature doesn’t work on the 1st Generation Kindle.
We really appreciate your constructive criticism; without it, we may not have revisited the ESV Study Bible’s navigation as quickly. Please leave additional feedback below, and we’ll do our best to answer your questions and pass your concerns along to our developers.
