When reading a book that gives frequent Bible references, it would be very convenient if one could keep a computer handy and use an app to display the Bible verse or passage on the screen. Does such an app exist? [Answers, 16 December]

 

There are at least two excellent and simple ways of looking up Bible texts on an Android phone or tablet; no doubt these are available on iPhones and iPads too.

The Tecarta app is free and comes with a free King James Bible, and other versions can be bought for a small price. It is extremely quick and easy to look up Bible passages, and a lovely feature is that you can in seconds compare two translations of the same passage, simply by turning your device through 90 degrees.

Once you have downloaded your translation(s), you don’t need an internet connection to use it.

Alternatively, you can install a Kindle app, again for free, on your device, and then download a free ESV Bible, with or without cross references. Looking up Bible passages is very quick and easy, and much quicker than finding them in a print version; and other translations are available to buy.

The website bible.oremus.org (like the rest of oremus.org) is excellent.

It seems to me that it would be of benefit to both couples and churches if churches were available to rent as venues for civil weddings, just as they are hired for musical performances. They are, after all, already designated places. What are the argu­ments against this pro­posal? C. W.

 

Are there any good modern introductory books for church­people about the Non-Jurors (more recent than Bishop Wand’s The High-Church Schism)? A. M.
