This is an excellent app for bible study.
Never used these before but have found them to be helpful, thought provoking notes with Bible verse links which are easy to follow. A great way to focus the day on the Lord.
Makes my Day !!
I would like to reiterate both the previous reviews . I have used Explore for quite a few years and have no plans to change. The ministry from the contributors is excellent - deep and challenging.
With particular regard to the last issue Tim Thornborough 's most excellent " Serpent crusher" series has been an anointed "Redemption history " ride through scripture . My many thanks and prayers for all of you for the future.
A good way to start the day.
I like the way explore challenges you throughout the study and gets you thinking about your relationship with Jesus. I would recommend it to others.
what iPhones have been waiting for
this is the perfect app for justifying owning an iPhone! Seriously though, it is a really useful, easy to use and encouraging app - if this doesn't remove some of the inertia we all face with bible reading, i don't know what will
My son uses explore and has a i pod touch. He will be totally delighted to find this is available as an App. Thank you - great idea the way to go to keep teenagers reading their Bible.
