    "This a great way to get kids interested and invested in the bible. I like the way stories are told and how they give children a way to connect and learn the stories."

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that in 1631, a bible version of King James Bible was published with the word "not" missing from the seventh commandment? Making it "thou shalt commit adultery". Read it again. Yes, you read that right! Publishers Robert Barker and Martin Lucas made about 1,000 copies of the bible and it was later dubbed as the Sinner's Bible (it was also coined the Adulterous Bible or the Wicked Bible). Well, we'll never know how many people actually abided by the law said in that version! It's pretty humorous to think about it now but looking back, it enraged the King Charles I of England and Archbishop George Abbot of Canterbury. The worst part is their license to print was revoked. According to sources, it wasn't a typographical error caused by man but rather an alleged act of sabotage done by Barker's rival. Well, apparently, bible printing one-upmanship was a thing before.

After 400 years, experts say only 9 copies of it are left. But by some random twist of fate, a rare copy was set for auction lead by Bonhams in 2015. The price of the wicked version ranged from $15,000 to $23,000! Anyway, gone are the days of typo-prone scriptures. We thank technology once again for making anything convenient and easier for us. There are now bible apps available for reading through your smartphones!

    "I am a christian and I take my faith seriously. I read the Bible daily and I find inspiration from the words within the Bible. When I found the Bible app at google play I thought I had died and gone to heaven! The greatest thing is it helps me organize the way I study the Bible, which is something I do daily. It will help you share important things with other believers and makes reading the Bible very easy. I love it."

    "There are many different Bible apps available for your mobile devices nowadays. Bible by Olive Tree is one of the best in my opinion. The fact that it doesn't require a WiFi connection to use, means no matter where I am, I will never be without my Bible."

    "Harper Collins did a real service in making this Bible Study app available to the public for free. I love the ability to read annotations from biblical scholars, and to see the location of places mentioned on a map. Plus, it's a lot easier on the eyes than your average Bible. "

    "I thank God for this wonderful App! It enables me to honor Him every day the way He intended me to. Sometimes, when I'm walking in front of the clinic and other heathen places, I find myself in need of a specific verse, and this also allows me to search for those, so I can share God's wisdom and love with the evil, whoring heathens that go to those sort of places. What a blessed app!"

    "This is truly a BLESSED app! Not only can you hear HIS word, but you it has the original Greek! It is like HE is speaking directly to me. I take comfort reading my daily verses detailing how HE will cast the sinners all around me into that great lake of fire. It's the only way I can tolerate these sick heathens I work with. I don't just mean the women, or those with the Mark of CAIN, but the Homosexuals and Liberals. I don't know how I would ever be able to cope with these vile sinners around me if it weren't for Bible.is. I thank my LORD and SAVIOR for it, AMEN."

    "For the deeply religious person of Christian faith who would like an alternative to the book version of the bible, this app is certainly a good alternative. It seems that this app has had previous bug issues which have been fixed in current edition. If those issues are truly fixed and this app can run error free, this would make a huge difference in the quality and usability of the product. The other main concern is the ability to navigate data and the ease of use. Without actually trying this system, I would not be quick to give it high marks. I have to wonder if this isn't just another exploitation of religion to make a profit."

    "Honestly I tried this for a few weeks, switching between various plans, and I was just never very impressed by it. None of the studies go very deep, and they seem to be more focused on making you feel better than actually teaching you more about the passage you're reading."
