Bible App: The Reformation Study Bible

For you iPod Touch or iPod phone fans, you're probably getting addicted to all the cool apps that you can download from iTunes!  I have great news for you -- The Reformation Study Bible is available from iTunes for $15.99.  A bit pricey, yes, but compared to the ones I downloaded before it -- the "cheapies" that were 99 cents or a few bucks -- this one is far better.

Here are some of its features:
"The Reformation Study Bible, General Editor Dr. R.C. Sproul, is a tremendous resource created by more than fifty scholars and featuring more than 20,000 study notes on Bible verses and terms.  Additional study notes include introductions to the seven groups of biblical books, book introductions with outlines, and 96 notes on central doctrines of Scripture.  This version also includes the entire text of the English Standard Version (ESV) Bible.  The entire resource is stored right on your phone for instand access without a network connection."

Features include:
• Fast keyword, phrase, and wildcard search
• Highlight verses in multiple colors
• Personalize verses with your own notes
• Additional translations free: KJV, ASV, YLT, WEB, Darby, RVA, AA
• Free downloads: Greek NT, Matthew Henry's Concise Commentary, Easton's Bible Dictionary, Spurgeon's Daily Devotional, Thompson Topics
• Web backup of notes and highlighting
• Direct, two-way Web synchronization
• Split screen view
• Verse tagging
You might be familiar with the name R.C. Sproul.  I enjoy and highly recommend his radio show "Renewing Your Mind."   Normally, however, I listen to his show via podcast, available from free from iTunes.   (Click here to read more about the Reformation Study Bible.)

I still believe a real book in your hands is the best; but, when you're in a pinch, having the Bible with such capabilities on something as small as your iPod is great.  And, with the introduction of Apple's new iPad earlier this week, I imagine reading the Bible on that will be wonderful.

Great for the Christian techie ...
