Some Free Bible Study Tools
The most important thing we can have (besides a personal relationship with the Lord, Jesus Christ) is His Word, to read and hold within our hearts. For this reason, I wanted to share some favorite free online Bible study tools!
This first one, YouVersion, is the one that I use daily! http://www.youversion.com/ They have an online version for your PC (not sure if it works on Mac, or not), a mobile version, and several free mobile apps. I use the app on my iPod Touch, and I LOVE IT! I have several of the Bible versions downloaded on my iPod, so that I can read even when I am not online! There are a plethora of reading plans and devotionals to choose from, but you must be online to access them. Also, while online it is very simple to share verses that really “jump out” at you on your Facebook and twitter. This is my number one pick, for daily use. Also, on the iPhone app, they have recently made several of the versions available on audio (BONUS!).
Another one I use quite often is the free e-sword software I have downloaded on my PC. http://www.e-sword.net/ This one, again, has features you can use online, and offline. There many more tools, on this one, you can use – such as, concordances, commentaries, dictionaries, topical indexes, etc. This is very good for really digging into something in the Bible.
Next, is Bible.is… http://www.bible.is/ This is an online audio Bible, of which there are 3 English translations, and other various languages. They also have mobile apps, but you must be online, in some way, to use it. 😉
There are a couple more that I have not really used, but look promising. If you end up using them, let me know how you like them! There is at least one Mac option to download…
Enjoy, be blessed, and let me know what you like best about any of these! ~Annette
