A few months ago I decided to get my Bible reading habit back on track. After some searching, I found the NET Journal Bible and decided to give it a go. Here is a review including a video version with some differences.[Read more…] about NET Journal Bible [Review]
“Pray without ceasing.” Easy right? Well, yes and no. It’s no wonder that there are many prayer notebooks, Bibles and apps to help people. This is why the YouVersion Prayer feature is worth a look.
Although there are many prayer apps out there, the latest one from YouVersion takes a few unique decisions, not least of all the fact that it’s built straight into the most popular Bible application in the world. So I guess it’s really a feature rather than an app, but I believe it’s worth comparing it to a standalone app.[Read more…] about The New YouVersion Prayer Feature In Its Bible App
Stain glass, hymns and other forms of art have not only been worship aids but media. For hundreds of years many people’s faith was enhanced through them. They were and, in some ways are still a part of people’s spirituality. Today, with developments in tech, it only makes sense that apps take the part of these mediums. Devotional apps have found space on the screens of many Christ followers. That’s why I thought we’d take a look at some Lectio Divina devotional apps.
It’s a New Year, and another chance to read the Bible all the way through. Yes, you don’t have to wait for a new year and you could start at any time, but the New Year can help act as a prompt to get going so why not take advantage of that. The only problem is which plan should you choose?
There are so many different ones with advantages and disadvantages.
- The whole Bible in a year vs part of the Bible;
- One long reading a day vs readings from different sections of the Bible;
- Reading the Bible in the order it appears vs chronologically reading the Bible;
- A Psalm every day vs only reading the Psalms once;
- Seven days a week vs a plan with catch up days.
Sometimes you can find a plan which has a few of these characteristics but not all. Well, John Dyer created a tool to help you make the Bible reading plan you want.
Happy Birthday to the most distributed Bible app in the world!
Can you believe it’s been 10-years since YouVersion was first released?
Do you remember the first time you downloaded it? Do you remember the first time you recommended it to someone? Can you imagine not having it anymore?
The New Year is more than a date change for many people. It is also a time of recalibrating, setting resolutions and goals (I chose one word instead of a set of goals or resolutions.) At this time, people tend to commit to doing something about their spiritual formation also. They commit to attending church more often or being more active in small groups. Prayer and Bible reading are also included in some of these personal goals. For this post, I’d like us to focus on Bible Reading plans on mobile.
