Promo video: a livelier one

October 19th, 2008
Here’s the one I prefer… with the same photo credits: Photos by freecultureNYU, biblicone, kretyen, Edward B., futureatlas.com, terren in Virginia, Alan Joyce, liewcf, GeoWombats, Wonderlane, knowhimonline, the bright and morning star, nexus6

Doing a promo was stimulated by David’s video, he reckons that I’m too frenetic, so here first is a quiet one 😉

BTW if you want to embed this on your blog or website, with a link to PodBible.com please! Use this code:

Bible 60: Leviticus

October 16th, 2008

Yes, by popular demand 😉 one of the least read (by Christians anyway) Bible books now comes packaged in neat Bible 60 format – just download and write to CD, dub to cassette, for someone who finds reading difficult, or just get an hour at a time for listening in the car…

Blog Action Day

October 14th, 2008
Today is Blog Action Day and the theme is poverty. Today’s reading comes from the end of the book of Judges (Judges 18). This and the next few chapters are part of the Bible that is NEVER read in church, too gruesome, messy and disgusting. Which makes it not a bad section to be reading on this Blog Action Day, since poverty is also too gruesome, messy and disgusting.

The other connection is that in these chapters we are reminded what happens when there is no decent government to protect the weak, and order society so that everyone has a chance. Many of the world’s poorest live in places where that is true, military dictatorships almost never prioritise ensuring everyone has enough to eat, access to medical care and schooling, warlords ensure such things even less often, and the kleptocracies that “govern” many African states (not just Zimbabwe) give only lip service to the many from whose soil their wealth is looted.

Bible 60: Exodus

October 9th, 2008

Bible 60 packages chapters from the PodBible reading of the CEV in convenient clusters. Each package will be about 60 minutes, ideal to dub to a C60 cassette, or write to an audio CD, for someone who’s eyesight is going, or an easy 20-30MB download to listen to on a journey…

Here is Bible 60 Exodus:

Other books will be available soon!

Mike Crudge’s book

October 9th, 2008

Mike Crudge has taken an interest in PodBible since we started, so some PodBible people might be interested in Mike’s book. The Abel Tasman Coastal Track: The best bits of New Zealand the book has reproduced Mikes photos really well and it would make a nice present (under $20) for anyone who has been there, or who might enjoy beautiful coastal scenery, NZ bush or unspoilt places. Mike has walked the Abel Tasman track, and photographed its stunning natural beauties annually, for so long it is a tradition.

To whet your appetites, he has allowed me to put small copies of a couple of photos up here, so you can get an idea how good they are 😉

On my personal blog I pointed to a brilliant resource (HT Stephen) The Bible Style Guide claims to be “a reference text designed specifically for those working within the media industry.” It also provides a “crash course in the Bible” for most other people too. It is the best introduction to biblical studies I know in just 79 pages – actually it is the only one anywhere near that short and better than most that are several times as long!

It combines very brief, down to earth glossary of key terms that people use when talking about the Bible, with a crash course in the nature of biblical literature, translation issues and adds some fascinating info on the Bible in today’s world. There is probably no one who can not learn something from this free 79 page book!

If you:

  • think Ebionite is a sort of ancient plastic
  • a Codex is related to secret messages
  • a canon goes “bang”

The Bible Style Guide will soon put you right! The answers are neat, quick and sensible.

Kids, do you think the Bible is old fashioned but confused because you were brought up to think it a Holy Book? Just get The Bible Style Guide and browse through it like a magazine.

Mature Christians (code for “not quite so longer young”) who get the Bible Style Guide will discover something new and inspiring – before breakfast and it’s absolutely free!

Quite seriously this is the most compact, useful and easy to use Bible Handbook I have ever seen…
