Let's face it: We officially live in a digital age. Anyone in America born after 1980 has been "born digital" - growing up in a world with access to the developing technologies of home computers, the internet, social media, mobile devices, and more. And just so we're clear from the outset, I'm a fan of these technologies. I'm grateful for the laptop computer on which I work, my iPhone and iPad - these offer me features and capabilities that would have been unbelievable 60 years ago.
As a pastor and teacher, one of the evident ways these digital technologies touch my world is through the "Bible app." Bible apps and their kin - whether it's the YouVersion Bible, BibleGateway, the ESV Study Bible, or any other of MANY options - offer tremendous opportunity to get God's Word into the hands of lots of people. But there are also dangers that can accompany "mobile device Bibles." My goal in this post is to highlight both two available strengths and two potential pitfalls of mobile device Bibles, so we can leverage the strengths and avoid the perils.
