Portable Study Library…

 —  March 22, 2012 — Leave a comment

I use a digital version of God’s word every day.  Bible software has taken my shelves and shelves of study tools and condensed them onto a portable library.  Now when I leave the office for my favorite study spot I have all I need to prep a message. Here are 4 of my favorite digital Bible resources:

YouVersion: This is my go to reading Bible in church and while teaching.  It’s free, hold notes and bookmarks well and it is very quick. (Available On: iPhone, iPad, Android, BlackBerry, Windows Phone, Windows 8, HP/Palm, Java, Symbian, Mobile Web, Kindle Fire, and online)

Logos: It is a pain to take a study Bible to a coffee shop much less 5000+ books. If you are looking for a great study tool checkout Logos, it is an outstanding tool, a bit pricey but worth it. Check out all the books at here. If you own Logos the apps are free. (Available On: Windows, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android, and online)

WordSearch Bible: WordSearch can feel a little clunky at times but it is a very good application, it is affordable, and the only Bible software I know of that has a few good youth ministry resources. If you own a copy of WordSearch the apps are free. (Available On: Windows, Mac, and iPad)

FighterVerse: I use this app everyday.  This memory verse app is rich in features, the $2.99 download is worth every penny.  It currently contains 5 years of weekly memory verses with the ability to quiz me and keep track of the verses I have memorized. My favorite feature may be the “Use Verse as Lock Screen.”  It creates an image of the “verse of the week” and I set it as my lock screen to read and memorize every time I turn my phone on.  At the rate I turn my phone on I should have the entire Bible memorized my summer 2012…seriously, it is embarrassing how many times I turn my phone on in a day (way too much).  (Available On: iPhone, iPad, Android, and hard copy)
