We continue our focus on Scripture reading for one more week.
As technology continues to develop, better and better resources are becoming available to the Christian community.
There’s nothing like a good study Bible. But what is really cool about the Faithlife Study Bible is the number of maps, diagrams, and pictures that help you understand the context of the biblical text– all just with a simple click of the mouse. Faithlife is giving away itself away through a software download, enabling you to have a study Bible on your Mac, PC, iPad or iPhone, Android, Kindle.
Another interactive Bible to check out is the Glo Bible. There are two platforms, one free, one at cost (that sometimes goes on sale). A unique feature of the Glo Bible is the number of photographs and ‘encyclopedia’ type articles that connect with places, people and things in the biblical narrative.
There’s another gift at our disposal as readers of God’s Word, though it is much less practiced– reading Scripture with people from the past. Here are two online & free resources to connect you with the writings of people from the Church across time: Monergism and CCEL. Both are searchable theological libraries full of writings from the ‘cloud of faithful witnesses.’
