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!
John Wesley’s gift for preaching was the spark that ignited the Methodist movement in eighteenth-century England. In The Collected Sermons of John Wesley, his influential sermons are made available to modern readers in their original language.
Readers can experience impassioned messages on topics such as The Nature of Enthusiasm—and how any true experience of religious devotion will yield heartfelt joy, calling Christians to bold and often unconventional acts of faithfulness—and Free Grace—about God’s grace freely given to all, making transformation and perfection in Christian love possible for any believer. In this free ebook, over 140 of Wesley’s sermons are collected and arranged alphabetically by topic.

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.
