We have a special opportunity this week for you to be aware of.
Q Ideas is hosting a FREE Live Stream with Eugene Peterson (author of The Message) Tuesday and Wednesday from 10:45am to 11:45am EST from New York. Gabe Lyons will be interviewing Eugene about how we can cultivate our inner life in an age of distraction. Specifically, they will talk about “Practicing the Sabbath” on Tuesday and being “Immersed in Scripture” on Wednesday. http://www.qideas.org/practices/live
Here is the description on the Q website:
On February 28-29, 2012, join Gabe Lyons and Eugene Peterson’s conversation via Live Stream for one hour each day. Two sessions have been selected for Live Stream during the two-day Q Sessions event taking place in New York City. Our vision for Q Sessions is to educate church and cultural leaders on important themes that develop personal renewal as we work towards cultural renewal. Many have read his works, but few understand the depths of Eugene Peterson– renowned pastor, author, scholar and poet–and how he has spent his life living theology instead of just thinking about it.
At 80 years old, Eugene Peterson is one of the most wise and respected authors and teachers of our time. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn from his wisdom. We hope you’ll join.
My friends on the Bible team here at Z have put together an excellent app for the NIV Study Bible. Here’s the vid:
There are a handful of reviews popping up. The video below is pretty thorough. Here’s a shorter review if you just have a minute to read.
Do you read the Bible as an Ebook? Where and why?
I’ll answer my own question: Yes. I have the NIV on my phone and I read when I’m eating breakfast or when I’m out and about and want to quickly reference the Bible. I still carry a print Bible to church and read a print Bible when I’m studying or reading for longer than 10 or 15 minutes.
