Guest Post – myWSB and the Mobile Pastor


When people think of a pastor they have a mixed bag of imagery. Some see him as a kind older man hugging people in the hospital and others envision a gentleman locked away in his study praying for the people and digging into the Word of God. While both of those certainly are the case, most of us are walking a different path. As a preaching elder I am in need of study. It is a heavy load to stand in front of God’s people every week and help to explain the Word of God and then show them how they might apply that to their lives. At the same time I am always moving. Sometimes I am in the office, other times I am rushing off to the hospital and still at many times through the week I sit in a coffee shop listening and sharing with people that are counted among our church. For this mobile lifestyle WORDsearch is my friend.

With WORDsearch Bible I have a fantastic set of tools I use to dive deeper into the Bible. With the new cloud site I have many of those tools and nearly all of my books wherever I am.

Free Friday! Ryrie’s Practical Guide to Communicating Bible Doctrine


Happy Free Friday everyone! Today’s free book, usually $10.95, is Ryrie’s Practical Guide to Communicating Bible Doctrine by Charles C. Ryrie.

Sound doctrine is, literally, healthy doctrine; therefore, to learn, teach, and preach doctrine brings spiritual wellness and wholeness to believers. The same word used in 3 John 2 for physical health is used in the pastoral letters for spiritually healthy doctrine (1 Tim. 4:13, 16; 5:17; 2 Tim. 1:13; 4:3;Titus 1:9, 13; 2:1, 7). In light of these verses, who can dare to suggest that doctrine is not practical? Notice also that some of these verses are addressed particularly to Timothy and therefore apply especially to ministers and leaders (1 Tim. 4:13, 16; Titus 2:1, 7).

When a resource or book is opened, it will open in a new Pane in the reader. To learn how to open resources from the Library page click here.

Once a resource is open in the reader, various settings and tools are available in the UI (User Interface) Ribbon of the resource pane.
