Bible Study …Can A Computer Really Help?

August 7, 2008

There is nothing to compare with sitting down with a Bible, and asking God to help you understand it …sometimes with the help of a commentary or devotional notes.

More and more people seem to be finding that computers really can help – here are the two main advantages I have found:

(1) Every resource I have is to hand and indexed when I open a particular Bible passage – no walking around thinking ‘now where did I read that…..?’

(2) The resources are with me all the time, wherever I go with my computer

Years ago I had a Windows PC, and at that point there was a program called ‘Logos’. This has gone through various updates, and I have stuck with it. I am currently running it on my mac using Parallels to run Windows XP, but I am really looking forward to the upcoming Mac version of Logos

People often ask me what I spend most of my time doing.

Well, that is an interesting question.

I meet with people a lot – talking about life, the Bible and God …for all sorts of reasons.

I pray and I read – all sorts of things, especially the Bible.

And I lead meetings and give talks.

Pastors do all sorts of things, these are among the most important. And computers fill a lot of our time, much like the rest of the world.

About a year ago, I took the plunge and bought a Macbook, and it is revolutionizing my life.

This blog will be all about how that is happening. I plan to look at email, managing actions, schedules & projects, blog writing, as well as the more obvious pastor things like Bible study worship and presentation.

So here goes…
