ESV Bible is a Bible reading App for Android/iOS based smart phones and Windows Mobile. It is developed by Crossway, the publisher of the English Standard Version of the Holy Bible. I have been using this app for few months now and decided it would be a bright idea to share my thoughts with you. Let me start with the pros.
I received my first Children’s Bible in the late 80s. It was filled with beautiful illustrations and narratives but very bulky. Fast forward to 2013 and there’s a Children’s Bible capable of fitting into a pocket, thanks to a smart phone app called “The Bible App FOR KIDS” developed by previously mentioned YouVersion.
As a preacher and an expositor of the Bible I need frequent access to solid reference material and software tools. eSword, MySword and the Expositor’s Bible Commentary by Zonedervan Publishers are some of the software tools and reference material I use very often. In addition to these I Google the net for any new tools that might have been introduced so that I can add them to my collection.
Today I want to introduce you to Faithlife Study Bible by Logos Bible Software, the latest addition to my collection. I already used it to construct a couple of sermons and although it has been designed with small groups in mind I am quite happy what I could accomplish with it as a preacher. Presented below is an introductory video clip about the new software.
It’s been a while since I last updated this blog because of my tight schedule. as I don’t like to post ‘junk’ for the sake of posting but couldn’t come up with any quality sermons or other content either, I was very glad when Paul Thompson, the creative director of Free Bible Images told me about The Word in Pictures and I decided to write a short introductory review.
Our regular readers must have noticed this blog is not updated quite as often it was used to be. The reason is I am very busy these days serving the local church while doing some work for the Assemblies of God of Sri Lanka. Probably this condition will remain longer and I won’t be able to post anything much until mid September.
Google doesn’t have all the answers. The Word of God does.
Each day brings questions for which we need answers. In a world that grows more complex hour by hour we constantly face new problems and opportunities. What should we do? How should we react? What can we believe? The word of God has the answers to all of these questions. Often we just don’t know where in it to find those answers. Below are some.
This video Bible by “I am not ashamed” is a great tool that you can make use of during personal devotions (or what ever purpose you intend to use it for). I love it because these video clips help me to remember scripture much easily and quickly. It also allows visitors to upload their own clips too. Click here to check it out.
PowerPoint, although designed with the Business presenter in mind, is a great tool for presenting the word of God also and God Company seems to be doing a brilliant job with it. All the slides are professionally designed and come with a useful and practical Bible Study. The studies are doctrinal and theologically correct too, colorful to the eye and understandable because the author use simple layman’s language in all of his teachings. All the slideshows are free and you can download them into your computer with just one click. Check the embed slideshow for a sneak peak view or visit God Company’s SlideShare channel to preview all the available slides.
