ChristianBook eBooks on the Sony Reader
To read a Christianbook.com licensed eBook on your Sony device, you will need to use Adobe Digital Editions.
Without using ADE, the Sony Reader will attempt to open eBooks with its own software, the Reader Library, and you may receive an error message.
To bypass the Sony Reader Library, return to the eBook portion of 'My Account' on our site, and click to download the eBook again.
When the Adobe Digital Editions installer comes up, click on 'Download Item.'
If you are downloading a DRM Protected eBook, you will be prompted to open or save the URLLINK.acsm. Click 'Save'.
Save the file to your Desktop for quick access later.
Right-click on the URLLINK file, then select 'Open With' and choose Adobe Digital Editions.
If Adobe Digital Editions is not in the list, click 'Choose Default Program' and then select Adobe Digital Editions from the list.
Your eBook will open and display in ADE.
Plug in your Sony Reader, which will now display its model number and not just as Sony Reader.
Now just click, drag and drop your eBook onto the Sony Reader icon.
You can now eject your Sony Reader, open up the Books library and your eBook is ready to read.

John TSt. Joseph, MIAge: 35-44Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5Doesn't include translation notesSeptember 13, 2012John TSt. Joseph, MIAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 2Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2I love the NASB, but this edition doesn't include translation notes. These are, in my opinion, an integral part of a Bible translation. If you want the notes, look to one of the NASB study bibles. The NASB edition of the MacArthur Study Bible, for example, includes the translation notes in addition to the study notes.
matt1616TXAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5awesomeAugust 19, 2012matt1616TXAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5i've been waiting a long time for this. when i checked back in 2010, lockman only had the nook and kindle versions out. looks like they put this out in 2011 and i just discovered it (2012).
so this book is in the ePub format with adobe DRM. i've got a sony e-reader (e-ink based) which i purchased primarily because i didn't want to be locked into the nook/kindle formats and devices. this ePub version should work well on a wide variety of devices.
to address a couple of the other reviews, i think the navigation works fine. i'm not really sure how they could do it better (but i also haven't used bibles on other devices either). i book marked page 12, which has all the books in the Bible listed on one page. i click/touch on a book, and i get a list of all the chapters in that book, also on one page. click on a chapter, and i'm there. so i can get to any chapter of the Bible in two clicks.
the search functionality is based on the e-reader, not the book. my search works fine ... but of course it searches the whole bible for whatever text i type in ... i can't tell it to only search a particular book.
it does have chapter/section headers and paragraph breaks. but it doesn't have footnotes or cross references, so i guess that would be one area that could be improved.
i'm really glad this finally came out. hope this review helps out someone else.
love in Christ,
MHRitterhouseAge: 35-44Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5Great translation, poor eBookMay 8, 2012MHRitterhouseAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 2The NASB is a great translation and I've enjoyed reading the actual book. Yet the primary problem with the edition I purchased, ePub, has horrible navigation. The ePub edition isn't designed for eReaders that are eInk based. If you have a Kobo Vox, Kindle Fire, or Nook Tablet then it MAY work.

Perhaps The Lockman Foundation can make it available in the future.
kateAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5August 4, 2011kateAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3Wish there was a way to highlight a passage (this may be my e-reader and not the e-book's fault, though). Wish there was a way to look up a certain verse by just typing it in instead of having to go to book and then chapter by chapter. Overall a great value for a Bible!
