Charles Finney was a descendant of the New England Puritans, and was born in Connecticut. Many are inclined to regard Finney, 1792-1875, as the greatest evangelist and theologian since the days of the apostles. It is estimated that during the year 1857-58 over a hundred thousand persons were led to Christ as the direct or indirect result of Finney’s labors, while five hundred thousand persons professed conversion to Christ in the great revival which began in his meetings.

Charles Wesley, the brother of John Wesley, helped found the Methodist denomination. He is most well known for the thousands of hymns he wrote, including some that are still well known today. Among those hymns that are still sung by Christians all over the world are “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing,” “Christ the Lord is Risen Indeed,” “Jesus, Lover of My Soul,” “And Can It Be?,” “Love Divine all Loves Excelling,” and “O for a Thousand Tongues to Sing.” Charles Wesley also kept a journal of his experiences spreading the gospel and ministering in England.

One great feature in The Bible Study App is the ability share text from the Bible, a devotional, or even a study resource. You can do this from an Android or iOS device. Here’s how:
Share feature for iOS
First select the text you want to share. In the screenshot below I’ve selected two sentences from the Streams in the Desert devotional. After selecting the text (by tapping and dragging) then tap on the ‘Share’ option.
You’ll then see four different ways you can share the selected text. If you haven’t already connected the App to your social channels you’ll be prompted to do so.
Share feature for Android
Similar to iOS tap and hold or in the example below, since I want to share a Bible verse, I can also tap the verse number and select the range I want to share. Once you have your selection, tap the ‘Share’ option.
What’s different with Android compared to iOS is that you can share the selected text through a variety of other Apps you have installed on your device.
So the next time you’re reading an ebook, devotional, or a passage that really means a lot to you, try out the share option. As always we’d love to hear what you think and what other ways would make The Bible Study App an essential tool for your spiritual growth. Feel free to share any ideas in the comment section!
