In honor of the King James Version’s 400th anniversary, Koinonia was giving away an Old Testament Commentary or New Testament Commentary. All you had to do to was:
To enter just comment below by Thursday evening with a common English phrase which traces its origins back to the King James Bible!
My entry: “Out of the mouth of babes.”
This past weekend I downloaded an iPhone app that I love. It is the KJV Bible Audiobook.
I am unfamiliar with the developer (iTourSoftware) or the church affiliation, but the app is first rate. It is much more than an audiobook. It is really a KJV Bible application with the option to listen. The user interface, search function, bookmarks and notes features are simple to use and more than adequate for their purpose.
This app won’t replace a Bible study app like Logos, but the audio function definitely makes this app worth having. I have downloaded, tried and erased several iPhone Bible apps, but this one is a keeper.
And best of all it’s free. You can donate, of course, and the proceeds support a good cause as best I can tell. I haven’t found where the app is available for other smartphones, so sorry non-iPhone users.
Note: since the app contains the entire audio KJV Bible, it will take a while to download on wifi (it took me almost an hour), or you can transfer from iTunes. But, the app loads and runs fast and I have not noticed any side effects from the file size. Enjoy!
Don’t forget, the Logos Great Bible Giveaway is still going on. There are plenty of chances to win and lots of ways to enter (facebook, twitter, posting, commenting, etc.).
Logos Bible Software is celebrating the launch of their new online Bible by giving away 72 ultra-premium print Bibles at a rate of 12 per month for six months. The Bible giveaway is being held at Bible.Logos.com and you can get up to five different entries each month! After you enter, be sure to check out Logos and see how it can revolutionize your Bible study.
…or so the search string goes.
Not as frequently as searches for Satan, but pretty frequently some eager searcher for the truth lands on my blog while searching for the:
- best bible translation
I hope said eager young searchers aren’t too sad to learn that I rather like all (or many) of the English Bible translations.
So, searchers for the best Bible translation, please feel free to check out the Bibles page for info, though I, regrettably, do not have the answer to your question.
I have also written on the subject here:
You can also shop for great Bibles and all the books reviewed here at BOB’s Bookstore.
As you may know, I personally prefer thinlines and compact Bibles for day-to-day use. But, my wife regularly reads her NIV Life Application Study Bible, which is 5lbs. if it’s an ounce. So, my baby definitely “got book.”
This is pretty darn funny, especially if you remember Sir Mix a Lot and his classic (which I never listened to, but I did hear about it from friends ;) )
“So your girl likes paperback?
Well, I ain’t down with that.”
Thanks to my sister-in-law for the tip. Enjoy!
