Logos Bible Software released version 6 of their popular software earlier this week. The new version includes a ton of new features and significantly updates many existing features. Is Logos Bible Software right for you? I explore some of the pros and cons in my weekly post over at the Why We Web blog.
Check it out….
One of my favorite Bible teachers is an Englishman of a former generation by the name Frank Binford Hole (1874-1964), however he is better known as simply F B Hole.
Those who are familiar with his written ministry will know that he writes in a fresh, straight forward and easy to understand manner. His scripture commentary is unique among commentators as he often provides insights to the Biblical text that most other commentators have missed.
Recently I was delightedly surprised to find seven audio records of brother Hole. The recordings are on the audioteaching.org website– here. Considering the recordings were made well over 50 years ago the audio quality is surprisingly good.

I am totally excited to announce that I am participating in a brand new ministry project called assemblyHUB!
One reason for my excitement is that assemblyHUB focus is the North American New Testament assemblies as I explain in one of today’s inaugural posts:
“Presently the assemblies are at a critical juncture. While we continue benefit from those who have gone before us, we must not rely on the blessings of prior generations to sustain us indefinitely. Individually and collectively, we must cry out to God for His mercy, leading, and empowerment to meet the challenges of our day. We must also have the fortitude and courage to follow where He leads.
My prayer is that the Lord will use the assemblyHUB website to encourage the saints to be busy going about His business; that we would tenaciously hold to that which is scriptural, be willing to free ourselves of the traditions of men, and to redeem the time we are given.”
The motivation behind this new ministry is best expressed Allan Dunlap in another of today’s inaugural posts:
“The purpose of [assemblyHUB] is to build up and challenge assemblies to consider the principles of the NT and how they can be applied to assembly and personal life. The focus will be on positive teaching and exhortation.”
So I encourage you to connect with assemblyHUB check it out for yourself!
This week, over at the Why We Web blog, I review ECS Ministries’ Bible Study app.
If you are looking for a great way to systematically study the Bible, you should check out my post.
The app also serves as a helpful educational tool. With materials appropriate for all age levels (8 & up) homeschool families, Sunday School teachers, youth group leaders, and parents will find the app to be a great way to engage students.
My post this week over at the Why We Web blog is an update of a post that first appeared in January: The Bible App For Kids.
During the course of the year The Bible App For Kids has been updated with several new Bible stories. Even better, the developers just announced a new Spanish language version of the app will be released soon!
Check out the new Why We Web post for the details….
Over at the Why We Web blog I just posted my weekly Wednesday post (yes, I know today is Thursday– I’m a little late).
This week’s post reviews a neat little app to help children memorize scripture with an engaging puzzle game. If you want to help the children in your life memorize scripture I encourage you to head over the Why We Web blog and check it out.
I just discovered that the Thomas Newberry Reference Bible is available online as a free download. See links at the bottom of this post.
If you are not familiar the Thomas Newberry Reference Bible you are probably thinking to yourself, “oh, no not another study Bible!” However, let me assure you this Reference Bible is unlike any other.
The reference Bible uses a system of symbols to indicate a wealth of information regarding the grammar and syntax of the original languages. For example, there are three different symbols to indicated if a noun or pronoun is singular, dual, or plural in the original Hebrew or Greek. This is very helpful because the tense of a word is not always clear in our English bibles.
