A couple of days ago ABC News published a story called “Looking for a New Religion? Apple Gives Dose of the Divine.” While our immediate reaction might be that it is absurd, I think there is a lot of truth in it. There are many that worship at the Church of Apple. How many people anxiously awaited their new iPhone 4?
But this does not just apply to Apple (though they may have more devoted followers than most). I think that our technology can easily and very quickly becomes idols that we worship. Technology is a good thing . . . something created by the image-bearers of the the great Creator as they imitate Him. What we do with it is the problem. These items quickly grab the affections of our hearts.
Crossway recently release their ESV Bible + for the OS4. The introductory cost is $9.99. Is it worth it?
First, you should know that Crossway has a free version of the ESV called the ESV Bible (with no “+”). If you do not have the money to spring for the ESV Bible +, you should definitely get the ESV Bible.
If you have the money though, I think it is well worth it. The interface is very elegant, probably the best of any Bible app that I have seen.
