Why do I think it's great? I think this is the best Bible app! I have tried several, and this is by far the easiest to use. Having the app on my iPhone means that I always have access to a Bible wherever I am. Plus there is an audio feature, and a live stream feature for some church services which is fantastic!
The search facility is my favourite feature; it allows quick Bible searches using key words or phrases when you can't quite remember a verse or the location of a verse. Plus, you can bookmark and save verses.
The numerous Bible versions available are a huge bonus. The ability to switch quickly and easily between versions is fantastic. The app features the New International Version (NIV) which is usually so difficult to get hold of on a Bible app. I was recommended this app by my friends, and now I am sharing it with you. The best bit is that it is free!
How much? FREE
In the midst of learning about the philosophy of ethics, a friend suggested checking out the website of Ravi Zacharias International Ministries. As a Christian, I had been struggling to understand the secular worldviews that shape society's mindset in thinking through the ethical issues faced by healthcare professionals. How was I even going to share the gospel with my classmates - these 'deep' medics who were intercalating in medical ethics and law?
The site is loaded with numerous resources. An archive of free podcasts includes subheadings like 'just thinking' and 'let my people think' and you can also read articles on subjects such as 'emotion and impulse', or 'common questions'. Newsletters, essays and bibliographies also feature.
In addition, there are videos to watch and links to other organisations and websites which will equip you to engage in evangelism and apologetics; meeting people where they are culturally, intellectually and spiritually in order to bring them to the knowledge of truth. My favourite to read has been the 'slice of infinity' (which you can 'like' on facebook) – a section aimed at reaching into our pluralistic culture with words of challenge, words of truth, and words of hope. It has helped me talk about my faith with confidence and I believe it will be useful to readers as well.
