)-- In partnership with Bible.org, Olive Tree Bible Software has released the NET Bible® First Edition for PDA and Smartphone devices. The Bible text only is available as a free download for your Palm, Pocket PC, Windows Mobile Smartphone, BlackBerry, and Symbian devices. The Bible text with the full translators' notes (almost 60,000) can be purchased for your Palm, Pocket PC, and Symbian UIQ devices.
The NET Bible® First Edition is the culmination of a project that began in 1995 – a fresh translation of the Bible, based entirely on the original languages. The result? A translation that is accurately based on the original languages, readable as a modern translation, and elegant in its style. Also included in this work are more than 700 references to scholarly works, and almost 60,000 translators' notes that were made as the translators were working with the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts.
Endorsed by Bible scholars and translators, Christian leaders, pastors, students, and readers alike, this relatively new translation is finding a warm welcome among Christians today. Following is a review from a professor at Dallas Theological Seminary.
"The NET Bible® ... is a refreshing and radical departure from previous translations of the Bible into English. It includes extensive translators' notes explaining and defending the translation and showing other options for handling difficult passages. The translators' notes, along with the study notes and textual notes, form an excellent resource for pastors, teachers, and students of the Bible. Yet the translation itself is still easy to read and understand, well suited for pulpit use as well as personal reading and study. Highly recommended."
— Howard G. Hendricks, Distinguished Professor, Chairman, Center for Christian Leadership, Dallas Theological Seminary
The NET Bible® – An accurate, yet modern and elegant translation of the Bible that brings new insight to the Scripture through the vast information included in the translators’ notes. The unparalleled detail in these notes unlocks the riches of the Bible’s truth from entirely new perspectives. This translation is now available for your PDA through Olive Tree Bible Software, so you can carry this Bible study resource with you wherever you go.
