Digital Discipleship Tools
Here are a few things I’m using regularly that are helping me merge my life as a disciple with technological advance. Still nothing better than an open Bible and journal, but wanted to share a few of my favorite resources.
ESV Bible Reading Plans – Nine different Bible reading plans that can be accessed in six different formats. I’ve downloaded the plan directly into my iCal and I get the RSS Feed to my phone each morning. The RSS Feed includes a link to audio files, so if I miss a passage in my morning devotional time, I can listen to it on my way to work. Currently doing the Outreach Bible Plan. Probably going to switch to the Chronological plan in January.
YouVersion.com – Using this resource as an iPhone App as well as the website. Great for Bible Reading online, searching Bible verses, cutting and pasting Bible verses, looking up verses in other translations, and more. Developed by LifeChurch.tv, totally free, and by far the best digital Bible out there.
Verse Card Maker – If scripture memory is important to you, you’ll love this tool. Type in the verse references you want to memorize and it makes the cards for you to print and cut. Developed by a computer programmer turned Seminary student. Verses are only in English Standard Version at this time.
Please send others that you’ve found helpful. So many resources out there. There’s no excuse for not interacting with the Bible daily.
