Staff Pick – Daily Prayers

cam_062312Each week the blog will feature a favorite book of a staff member that’s available on WORDsearch.

Words have always been important to me, so all too often I get exasperated by the cliches and the jargon that dominate much of our thoughts and conversation. Of course, both cliches and jargon are necessary and have their place, but when used thoughtlessly, the words used to form them often lose substance. After a while, I find myself forgetting the power and significance behind certain catch phrases and words… which is kind of problematic when those phrases involve words like faithgrace and God.

Staff Pick – HCSB Study Bible

TerrFayeCasperiaEach week the blog will feature a favorite book of a staff member that’s available on WORDsearch.

I’m a big proponent of daily Bible reading because everything in life makes more sense when God’s Word is fresh in my mind every day. It strengthens my spirit, gives me energy and makes me a better husband, father and minister to others. This year, I chose to read through the HCSB Study Bible and it has been an absolute joy!

For years, I had the mistaken opinion that the Holman Christian Standard Bible was a “Baptist Bible” because it is published by Broadman & Holman. Reading this study Bible has certainly changed my mind. My experience has been that this is a very accurate translation that is easy to read and understand. The HCSB Study Bible includes a ton of helpful material that will bless anyone, regardless of their denominational preference.

4CEach week the blog will feature a favorite book of a staff member that’s available on WORDsearch.

For years and years, I’ve been trying to successfully read through the entire Bible. I’ll invariably get bogged down somewhere in Leviticus or somewhere in the minor prophets, if I’m lucky to make it that far. Around the beginning of this year though, I decided to take a good look at one of the books we were having a promotion on: The 365-Day Devotional Commentary by Lawrence Richards.

Here is some good news if you’ve been wanting us to bring back the original WORDsearchiPad app. Your old app is now available. You can reinstall it and use it as you did in the past.

WORDsearch Bible Classic – In the App Store Now

While we continue fixing the bugs in the new app, you can now reinstall your original version of the app. We were required to give it a new name, so just go to the Apple App Store and search for WORDsearch Bible Classic. If you are on your iPad now, you can find it by clicking here.

Just sign in with your email address and password to install. If you’ve already installed the new app, it’s not necessary to delete it from your iPad. This way, you’ll automatically be notified each time a corrected and updated version of the new app is available. You can have both apps on your iPad at the same time. It’s your choice. You can run the old app, the new app or both.
