The Next Bible

The second Biblical revolution is—believe it or not—headquartered in Edmond, Oklahoma (pop. 83,000). That’s where a church called “LifeChurch.tv,” a young tech-savvy Christian by the name of Bobby Gruenewald, and his pastor, Craig Groeschel, are changing the way people read holy texts. It’s called YouVersion—“the Bible app”—and it’s coming soon to a smartphone near you.

Overstatement perhaps? You be the judge. Since Gruenewald, LifeChurch’s “innovation lead,” devised the Bible app in an airport security line in 2006, officially launched it in 2008, and relaunched with their first national television commercial last week, it’s been downloaded by 83 million unique devices. Four million new users are installing the app each month. The Bible app is in 215 languages, 450 different versions, and collectively users spend more than 3 billion minutes reading scripture on the app monthly. Hear that, ...

I though the Green family was going to open a Bible museum in Dallas? With Dr. Wallace as its curator? (See Series Title: The History of the English Bible to see some of his excellent work!) So, how is that progressing. No, I haven't seen the thingy of the HC on the Bible, they are much more adept at putting on shows about pawnshops onto t.v.

Oh, Chris, I would like to point out to you the somewhat lengthy--but excellent article--of How We Got Our Bible

The History Channel's Bible series comes to life in NYC:

Steve Green explained to CP that the artifacts inside the exhibit are arranged in chronological order, so people can walk in and follow a timeline of progression that goes from ancient times to artifacts only a few hundred years old.

"There is a brick over there from the actual wall of Jericho. There are nails from the time of the crucifixion of Christ. The Eliot Bible, 1685, is written in the Algonquin language," Burnett added, presenting some of the rare items.

"People who maybe can't afford to go to Jerusalem and the river Jordan and see the Dead Sea Scrolls and these artifacts – the Green family literally stepped up in about five seconds from a phone call to provide these rare, valuable artifacts, assembled for people for free."

I would suggest that you do get a Comparative Study Bible, if you really need bad AV with some really good Bibles to set you on the right course, Errors in the King James Version? Yes.

Ah, to really cover the topic: The Apocrypha and Biblical Canon Part 1 (PDF), The Apocrypha and Biblical Canon Part 2 (PDF), The Apocrypha and Biblical Canon Part 3 (PDF), The Apocrypha and Biblical Canon Part 4 (PDF), The Apocrypha and Biblical Canon Part 5 (PDF),and The Apocrypha and Biblical Canon Part 6 (PDF).

To shorten things up a bit, the 2nd Maccabees is considered of some use because of the history it gives. But then you have the 1611 AV with it there don't you?

By the way, the book of Enoch...very interesting concerning the watchers. I know they say these books are not divinely inspired, but do you all think they are all pure fiction? Like the Bible speaks of the Nephilim (giants), but the book of Enoch goes into much more detail. Maybe the writer was there to witness some of the strange things of old that went down?

Yes, it is the 1769 version. Jim calls it corrupt because sensible men have removed the apocrypha, as well as using the modern fonts. The apocrypha in the 1611 version was never regarded as scripture by Protestants, but was retained for reading in church.

Thus the 1769 rendition is the more sensible option, and is not corrupted.

Is The KJV Still the best?

Whatever Bible version you use PLEASE have a listen to the first 20 mins of the above dealing with the recent foreign TBS translations; truly heart warming conversions and reference to sufferings that we in the west know nothing of,- unlike our great Reformers burned at the stake.

The best new bible is the one that JohnuK kindly recently gifted to me:

Fantastic QUALITY Bible

It could be your 'Next Bible' if you are looking for accuracy and quality

Besides what I consider an excellent comment before this one, For you who just have to have a copy of the 1769 version of the Authorized King James Version, I would suggest a Comparative Study Bible which is a printed Bible (not too low priced if memory serves) which gives you three Bibles in one, one of which being the KJV. Now you can check out the above source, your nearest source for religious material and perhaps even some secular bookstores may have it. It should always be pointed out, more important than any particular Bible version you're using unless it's the NWT, (if you have that put it in your nearest paper recycling bin) is--How to Understand What the Bible Says

Actually Indian Hills Community Church gives a brand new NASB attendee to our church. Of course it also has an excellent selection of Bibles, Bibles at IHCC, most of which I would say lower priced than those you mentioned.
--But--
No doubt, SermonAudio is more interested in getting into people's hands --FREE-- Bibles, and since most people have either computers or tablets there is a quite a good selection of choices to be had, e.g.,

The Lockman Foundation -- Free Downloads (You can get the very best Bible the NASB)

e-Sword which I believe SA still highly recommends, and you can get the actual 1611 AV, with Apocrypha, besides the corrupted 1769 version. It looks quite good and I have it sitting on a couple of computers.

There are the various programs put out by the The CrossWire Bible Society and you find quite a few free Bible programs for Apple, Sword programs for various apple devices

By the way, MySword is packed with a lot of bells and whistles so it does look complicated with all of the default toolbars in view.

Ice cream sandwich and now, Jellybean. 4.1, 4.2 being the latest build. I'm running 4.1 on a Samsung Note II and a Galaxy Tab II. Everything runs great on these.
In todays tech world, what you consider ancient, I'm assuming your gear is older than 3 months? Ha-ha. It all really does move way too fast especially with me being a gadget freak always having to have the latest and greatest.

Chris, I was thinking of MySword, it just looked a little complicated and difficult to do on my now "ancient" tablets.

The only problem with And Bible you have to use the second best Bible, the ESV instead of the NASB, because the folks of the ESV made it easily available.
And Bible works on everything I put it on, Froyo, Gingerbread, (what the latest one I have? Ice Cream Sandwich, I'll have to look it up) An Android device just isn't worth the money unless you can put And Bible on it.
The only plugin I miss is the Webster's Dictionary whose definition I often afflict people with on this forum Hmm, I see I ought download the Eye dictionary -- if it's free.
Anyway, if I'm not using a netbook which I have the NASB on, I use the tablet with And Bible.
Eh?

1 Corinthians 14:11 KJV

Jim, thanks for the recommendation. I downloaded the AndBible last night and it looks pretty good. I already have My Sword Installed but will try both side by side. I like that My Sword is open source so there are 100's of 3rd party plugins.

Well, I do appreciate the AndBible-1.6.0.apk this is on Google, and you can get it free also off the Amazon Android store if Google doesn't like your Android device. I don't know if this is the latest version, but the freewarelovers site is also a place that you can get it though it might be an earlier version? And Bible. The earlier version didn't have a map viewing function. It is quite good, even makes it easy to get the KJV with the Strong's concordance/dictionary with it. My own church has an app on Google play, called Sound Words. So, if you're device is talking to Google (mine don't) You might check that out.

Also the "And Bible" app one can be moved to your SD card, I rarely keep any app that won't move since, I don't have that much room on my devices. Anyway, just like the The CrossWire Bible Society software for the big computers this one has many versions of the Bible and in different languages.

Don't get me wrong I am not against the technology I am against the confusion mostly. 1 John 5:7, acts 8:37 are missing in the new versions. That is confusion and dangerous for babes in Christ. I recommended the Alexander scourby app. His voice is classic. That is positive. I hope you see what I mean.
