Monday, April 06, 2009 Milestone has revolutionised my Bible reading in the last couple of years. I had slipped out of really sticking to a regular plan. Yes I read the Bible often but mostly for study, preparation and preaching.

When YouVersion launched on the web I loved it. I tend to spend much time on my lap top and now I had the Bible with a ready made plan that opened infront of me everytime I switched on my Mac.

Then the iPhone app came along and it is amazing. Here is a copy of a post from their blog a few days ago:

Yesterday, YouVersion passed one million unique users on the iPhone/iPod touch through the YouVersion Bible App. Since the launch of the Bible App users have spent 407,000,000 plus minutes engaging with God’s word!! Wow!

I’m gonna let that number soak in for a second.

407,000,000 minutes = 326,388 days, 21 hours and 20 minutes of Bible engagement.

Our excitement stems from our desire here at to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ. From the start YouVersion’s purpose has been to open new doors to help people connect the Bible to their daily lives. At the core, our focus remains on relevancy as we consistently strive to demonstrate and teach people how God’s Word relates to everyone, no matter where they are in life.

YouVersion isn’t just a tool to impact the world using innovative technology, more importantly, it promotes engaging people into a relationship with God as they discover the relevance the Bible has for their lives. So thank you for spreading the news, twittering, and blogging about YouVersion. We are looking forward to many more minutes of Scripture engagement as we all strive to become fully devoted followers of Christ.
