Sunday Musings of the Spirit: There's an App for That

I used to see lots of "Sunday bags" at church--bags containing scriptures, manuals, paper and pencils, etc.  Now, with smart phones, tablets, and e-readers, people pack lighter for church.

 Just this week, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced the release of a 2013 edition of the scripturesEven for those not of our faith, this edition of the King James version of the Holy Bible should serve as a wonderful resource.  

Want to study a particular topic?  Go to the Topical Guide and find references to that subject.  Click on the reference, and you will jump right to that scripture.  Curious about how far it is between Nazareth and Bethlehem?  Look at the maps.  Want to see the Garden of Gethsemane?  Go to the Bible photos.  Reading along and wonder about a particular phrase?  Check the footnotes.  I really can't stress enough how useful this edition of the Bible can be--and you can't beat the price (FREE)!

Anyone can go to this site, and under "Gospel Library", click on your platform, and learn how to download the Bible to your device.   Make sure to download the study aids, too.  If you prefer an actual, paper-paged book, that can be requested here.  (The updated print version will not be available until this summerThe current version does have the resources I mentioned, though, but the updated version contains new photos and updated information.)

If you decide to download a copy, I'd love to hear your opinion! 



Thanks for the ways in which technology blesses our lives, and thanks for the scriptures, no matter what format!
