We’ve been blogged.


Mobile Ministry Magazine, which we have been reading from time to time, has done a post about us and used such nice words as “Effective In-Bible Interfaces” (is it really about us?)  The full extent of the power of mobile Bibling (Bible-computing, my coinage) is still to be explored.  But even now it is clear that mobile Bibles penetrate through the tightest of fences.  The Soviet Union may not have survived as long if God’s Word was freely available electronically as it is now (see my earlier post about the treatment of God’s Word in the Soviet Union).

MMM* has reminded me about my ruminations about various approaches to Bibling: (a) a walled-garden, expensive, heavy weight one a la Logos; (b) apps way (for iOS, Android, etc.), (c) epub/mobi open ebook method (what I have been mostly doing); (d) simple Java Bible for each cell phone that has power to revolutionize missions in prosecuted countries.  I may refine them and put them to paper (screen) in the future.


*Apropos, there are a couple of associations for me with this abbreviation, 1 and 2

  1. It’s our pleasure to have written about your efforts. And yes, interfaces for bible reading, searching, studying, and sharing is indeed a topic MMM has taken on from time to time. There are a number of behaviors not yet explored, and perspectives forgotten as we run throughout mobile and it’s various iterations. Designing for the experience that best fits the device is all too often left behind.
