Studying and Preaching the Bible in the Digital Age (Part 2 of 4): Resources for Spiritual Disciplines

Bible Digital AgeThis is part 2 of a 4 part series. Part 1 is here.

Here are some recommended resources for help practicing the spiritual disciplines of Bible reading, Bible memorization, prayer, and journaling.  The idea of the list is to share resources that you can selectively use (not to make you think you have to use all of these).

All apps and programs are free unless otherwise noted.  All apps have access to multiple translations unless otherwise noted.
