Finally! I’ve been waiting to see what this is all about. It’s LifeChurch.tv’s online Bible program. If I can remember correctly, I started using the Blue Letter Bible, then I moved to Bible Gateway, and most recently Ebible. But I’ve been stoked to see what LifeChurch.tv had brewing behind the scenes. From what I can tell this is an online Bible program that also promotes community and personal study & devotion. Here’s what I noticed after a 10 minute test drive:
- I couldn’t get the search feature to work
- Right now they only have ASV, KJV, Word English Version, ESV, and an Arabic version (my favorite versions are The Message, NLT, and NASB)
- You can star, tag, and email selections of scripture (very cool)
- The format is 2 columns – on one side is the scripture, on the other is an interactive window with…
- A Community tab – this looks like it will be like a sharing area, where relevant information is shared throughout the “community”. A reference to Matthew Henry’s Commentary came up on my screen.
- A My Version tab – looks like this is where your starred and tagged information is stored, although I couldn’t get it to work.
- A Journal tab – this is where you can write your own notes to go along with what you are reading or studying, very cool.
All in all the interface is totally Web 2.0 – very easy to navigate and very cool. Here’s my wish: A “You Version Widget”, where you could share what you are reading and what God is teaching you via the Journal tab in your personal blog.
