The Vatican has released the post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation on the Word of God in the life and mission of the Church.
Unfortunately the Smoke of Satan has entered the Church since the Apostolic Exhortation on the Vatican website has been released in PDF format. Jimmy Akin has rightly called this “an evil file format” as he explains here. Though some of his objections are overcome for Mac users since PDF’s can be read natively without extra software or those who use and Adobe Reader replacement program like Foxit Reader on the PC. The formatting of this document is pretty nice though.
Regardless I still don’t like reading long PDFs on a computer anyway. So I have converted Verbum Domini to two eBook formats which gives a good in-depth table of contents and being easily readable on a eBook reader.
ePub format This format is good for most eBook readers except the Kindle.
mobi format Good for the Kindle and some other eBook readers.
Note 1: I uploaded these files to Dropbox. This is a great service that gives you 2GB of space free that you allows you to create a folder on your computer that is continuously synched and can be synched on multiple computers with difference operation systems. If you’re interested use this link which both gives me 250MB more file space and automatically adds 250MB to your free account.
Note 2: I got a Word file version from The Cross Reference and then was able to load it in Apple’s Pages and export it to ePub, which is a really nice new feature. I then used the open-source multi-operating system program Calibre to convert it to mobi format.
Thanks for sharing my link, Jeff. Glad it was helpful for you.
Calibre rocks. Jeff, thanks for your work on this and tonsure tap to Happy Catholic for linking to you.
Thanks so much for making this available in .mobi!
