Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:

GOD’S WORD Translation (GW) accurately translates the meaning of the original biblical texts into clear, everyday language. Readable and reliable, GW is living, active, and life-changing. The combination of accuracy and readability makes GW ideally suited for devotional reading and in-depth study, preaching, teaching, and worship, memorization, and discipleship.

The Kindle edition of GW includes direct verse lookup and book and chapter navigation.

To navigate this Bible on the Kindle, just start typing a Bible reference in the lookup bar using the book abbreviation. The search results will come up automatically, and you can move the cursor to click the verse you want to view. You can also type a full reference, using the period in place of a colon (e.g., Ps 119.111). On Kindle for the PC and other non-device versions of the Kindle, use the Table of Contents. Links to the Bible books will lead you to pages with links to individual chapters.
