Logos 4 Mac

One of the great bonuses of attending the BibleTech 2010 conference in San Fransisco last March was being able to talk to and get to know many of the developers behind the Logos software.  Logos creates one of the most sophisticated (and awesome) Bible study and research software on the market. Back in March, many […]

Thinking about Bibles

I have continued to think about what I would want in a Bible. I continued to think about Bible design after my Random Research Friday a couple of weeks ago where I researched a new note-taking type Bible.

I have continued to develop the idea. I recently compiled a list of qualities (both design and production) I would like to see in this Bible.

Big Christian Words

I was reading through the preface of my ESV Bible and read the following passage… The ESV also carries forward classic translation principles in its literary style. Accordingly it retains theological terminology – words such as grace, faith, justification, sanctification, redemption, regeneration, reconciliation, propitiation – because of their central importance for Christian doctrine and also […]

Dig Deeper Book Review

Dig Deeper by Nigel Beynon and Andrew Sach is a very engaging book that sets out with the goal of giving Bible readers tools (mostly literary tools) to better study and understand the Bible.  I really enjoyed this book, but to really understand it you have to read it through a couple of times.  Also, […]

Random Research Friday: Custom Study Bible

Random Research Friday is taking a day of the week to explore a concept, product, idea, or anything that peaks my interest. My goal is to chose a topic I do not have vast experience in and just to learn more.

For the inaugural Random Research Friday, I thought I would explore a topic that I have been thing about for a while. The concept for a custom study Bible came from my own exploration of how I study. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am an avid note taker. But also I enjoy having multiple resources at my disposal at the time that I am studying.

Jason Gray – Everything Sad is Coming Untrue (Music Review)

I have been hooked on the new Jason Gray album.  I can literally listen to each song without having to skip a song.  Jason Gray uses very smooth and clever lyrics and rhymes to keep you interested.  The sound of the songs are split.  Half of the songs will remind you of a normal pop […]

John Piper – Reciting the book of Philippians by Memory

While at the BibleTech conference, I heard mention of a recitation from memory of the book of Philippians by John Piper. John Piper is a popular pastor the of a church in Minnesota. He runs the Desiring God website, and I recommend you check it out as its resources of growth and learning are vast.

Below is a video of his recitation of the book of Philippians by memory.

BibleTech 2010 Wrap-up

Well BibleTech 2010 is over.  Great time here in San Jose, CA.  I was able to connect and meet people that I would have NEVER have the opportunity otherwise. I was happy with my talk introducing Holy Lamp.  For the last couple of weeks I have been working hard (unsuccessfully) on getting the parts built […]

BibleTech 2010

I will be a speaker at the BibleTech 2010 conference in San Jose, CA. It is going to be held on March 26 and 27 and should be a great conference to network and see what’s happening within the world of Bible technology.

I am going to be demonstrating a new web application I am building, Holy Lamp (I will post more about this soon.) It is an interesting conference, and will be a new experience for me. I have only gone to a handful of conferences anyway, and no Christian-based conferences.

Rob Bell’s “Everything is Spiritual” Lecture

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SqZSqRlVXYk

Rob Bell is a pastor for the Mars Hill Bible Church in Michigan. This video goes through some scientific facts, some universe weirdness, and overall spiritual nature of everything. It is really cool to see him talk about string theory, 2D interactions with 3D objects, and other nerdy things. There are actually 8 parts to the lecture, so if you like this first part, click on the video and head over to YouTube to watch all of them.
