This week we highlight the New English Translation (NET) of the Bible for use within The Bible Study App.
The NET Bible®, a modern translation of the Bible based entirely on the original languages, has been updated and revised, and is now available as the First Edition. It is noted to be accurate, readable and elegant, and includes a limited sample of the translator notes from the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts, as well as limited references to scholarly works. The unparalleled detail in these notes unlocks the riches of the Bible’s truth from entirely new perspectives.

George Mueller’s life began as a faithless and dissolute youth. It ended as one of the most remarkable men of God, who daily trusted God’s provision for thousands of orphans, who never asked for money for himself or his work, who withstood the trials of life, and who never failed to place God first in all parts of his life. John Piper, in this short biography, maps out Mueller’s life of faith and his usefulness to the Lord’s work on the earth. Mueller’s inspirational life has lessons for us all.
We’re pleased to offer as a free download for The Bible Study App, Absolute Surrender by Andrew Murray.
From the author:
Absolute surrender — let me tell you where I got those words. I used them myself often, and you have heard them numberless times. But in Scotland once I was in a company where we were talking about the condition of Christ’s Church, and what the great need of the Church and of believers is; and there was in our company a godly worker who has much to do in training workers, and I asked him what he would say was the great need of the Church, and the message that ought to be preached. He answered very quietly and simply and determinedly:
“Absolute surrender to God is the one thing.”
