The Great Isaiah Scroll , the best preserved of the biblical scrolls found at Qumran from the second century BC, contains all the verses in this chapter. On "Isaiah 40". In: The Pulpit Commentary. First publication: Accessed 24 April Isaiah I love that my notes and highlights are always with me, at the least in my iphone. I also have about 15 versions and when studying, I often consider all of them in seeking to understand the original meanings.
Through many decades I now have more notes than any printed version, and I know where they are, and how to find them. Very good logic. I do not own a tablet, iPad, or any other electronic equipment which i can carry with me to install a Bible app. I do have Bible study software on my computer—but that is for when I am digging deeper because it is a lot easier to access the necessary references via software than to open up a half dozen different references on my desk when preparing a lesson or sermon—and it takes up less workspace.
But whether one prefers their Bible in a digital format or a hard copy format is meaningless if one is not studying and applying Scripture to their lives, being renewed in their minds, and growing more Christlike in character.

Nothing can replace holding the bible in your hands, and reading it. My bible is my life. The life and meaning that comes from the bible in book form is definitely more alive then in reading it in digital. It will never match up. Prise the Lord for his word in book form. I feel the same way, Norma, though others who are commenting are making good points about the advantages of digital.

We live in a society of distractions is up to the believer to remain focus. I fell like this an attempt to shift the blame from the individual. Is like the gun right people blaming guns instead of the Spiritual and person mental state, in the Christians life is the state of their spiritual life. So it works out great!. Which is why we are in the shape we are in. DO YOU read it, study it, obey it and guide your live by it. Most people who have hard copies or other means, have it sitting on the shelf form Sunday to Sunday. Thanks for the good word. As an older Christian who has been reading the Bible for more than 70 years I am amazed and thankful for the wonders of digital.
I think I could list more than 8 reasons why I prefer digital, but here are just some. I now easily carry my Bible everywhere I go 2.

I carry it in at least five versions, which I can switch between at a click 3 I carry it with at least two commentaries and a Bible dictionary 4. I can mark the verses or themes in a multitude of colours 5. I can add notes at any verse at will 6. I can recall marked notes or verses 7. I can make the text size anything I like 8.
I can read it with ease no matter the light conditions 9. I can share verses not just on occasions with someone on the train, but at a click with hundreds on Facebook around the world anytime a chose! My iPad is amazing, and in my old age I am thankful for this provision. Your point is very well-taken, Matthew.

I am pretty persuaded about the benefits of being able to carry multiple translations and commentaries! For me, however, the paper and ink is more than sentimentality—it makes me more of an active participant in my reading and understanding of the Word. Just me! Good points.. But let me tell you the main reason i use a bible app more than the actual bible. For one you can hold your phone in one hand, laying on your back, side etc and still be comfortable. You can read it at night no separate lights needed. Adjust the font to relieve eye strain. I get terrible neck pains and headaches hunched over for more than 15 minutes.
Again a phone can be held with one hand and can be held low, high in the middle etc without any arm strain. Try that with your 1 pound and heaver bible. Your arm will feel like its going to fall off. I say use whatever is most comfortable. Everyone is different. Does not matter how we are fed as long as we are being fed the word.
And i can use the olive tree app with split screen with different commentaries and bible versions etc to compare notes for study. Cant do this with a paper bible.
My 87 year old sister likes her Bible on her tablet, for print size etc. The amazing thing is that we live in a day and age when the Bible is available to more people than ever before, thanks to digital, and freely available on line in so many languages, and for that we praise the Lord! And, I do still like my hard copies as well when the light is good and my eyes are not tired! I use Olive Tree with every available Bible translation downloaded. I can click on a reference verse and see the verse off to the side without losing my place.
There is no comparison. Respect your opinion the bible is a beautiful book. But in the words of President Obama, we have fewer horses and bayonets also. Get the King James paper bible! When you read a Spirit filled bible your eyes will drop tears on the pages, and your mouth will give thanksgiving on what you are receiving from the word. Will not happen on an app , plus the Spirit of God has not been experienced in app.
Not by me anyway , and I doubt if anyone else has. I appreciate this article so much…My Bible study suffers alot when doing tablets,too much going on.
The Book is so impressive and a good witness. I never write in printed books. Of any kind. But I take notes in my Bible apps all the time.

I could not disagree more. It is faster when you also while studying to pull up a concordance page. I use world pad to make notes and look up questions for later.
