    Interesting. Always wanted a Bible I didn't have to carry, except preferably a more accurate one...

    One thing I noticed was, remember how they'd have the brackets [] to indicate words inserted, according to them, to complete the sense of what was meant in the original languages? I noticed that those brackets are gone, and the words are just in the text now. So if those words weren't what the original writers intended, well, now they are officially part of the Bible, according to the Society.

    Rather clever. Reminiscent of 'Animal Farm', to be sure. But at least it's a nice .pdf, eh?

    Funny. I converted one to mobi and put it on my (JW) wife's kindle. --Every marriage needs a least one good deed a day

    --Sorry state of affairs when it falls to the unbelieving spouse to do this though.

    The brackets are still in the study bible.. you are not supposed to know about them until after you are baptized

    great news sd-7 ... now I can download to my kindle ...thanks

    I don't mind about brackets or no brackets as the bible inclines towards groups making up their own truths ... what is important though is that they keep integrity to their own interpretation.
