Now, I know this is not for everyone. But if you would like a bible in your iphone, and not just the KJV translation which is in a language few people understand, this is FREE.

By default the bibles in the app are online, requiring a data connection. However, you can download them offline into your iphone. I've downloaded NKJV and the Message bible. In total, many many translations available (>30).

Don't vote cold just because you don't read the bible. Go outside and enjoy the sunshine this fine Saturday instead.

This app is not for me, I am not a Christian (and I already own a hard copy of the Bible for research) but I don't understand the cold votes. It's a freebie, it will be useful for Christians (or anyone who wants to research), so why cold?

Forget about whether a post could potentially save someone, who actually would like or want the item, some money. This site is really HotOpinionUK and some votes are based on people's opinions of the product not whether a posting is a deal or not. :whistling:

Really???

Not that I am seeing that the Bible is fiction, because I have no intention of offending Christian and also because I believe large chunks of it is based on 'truth'. However, there are stories in there of horror, action, heroism, sacrifice, humility. How can you possibly find it boring?
#12
People who say it is fiction have not bothered to read the book itself. Over two-thirds can be proven as historical fact from outside sources.

And what outside sources are these? As Wikipedia would say... Citation needed.

Visit your local library to see the vast display of historical books that prove the historical facts of the Bible, then study a bit of archaeology to see that tens of thousands of items have been uncovered to show that events mentioned in the Bible actually happened and the people actually lived. You might knock the spiritual aspect of the Bible, but only someone who can't be bothered to read and investigate will dismiss that it is historically sound.

I think you'll find it's you that can't be bothered. You're stating what you say is a fact and then telling us to go and look at it in the library. If you make a point, it's up to you to prove it, not people questioning you. Fox example, I can tell you there's a tea pot going around the sun. Should I then expect you to go and find the facts, or should I prove that it's true. And I'm afraid that it's a sad fact that the events in the bible did not happen as depicted. Fox example, historical fact shows that king herod wasn't around at the time said so in the bible. There was no mass killing of children, specifically around the time mentioned in the bible. This is just one of the historical "facts" that didn't happen. Go to a library and look it up. [hippocrtical point intended)

New World Excyclopedia

Herod I or Herod the Great (Hebrew: Hordos הוֹרְדוֹס) was a major Roman client-king of Judea approximately 37-4 B.C.E. in [COLOR=#002bb8]Jerusalem[/COLOR]. Known to history as a ruthless man who did not hesitate to kill anyone who might have threatened his throne, Herod also proved himself to be a capable administrator and far-sighted ruler who reigned over a territory greater than any Jewish king following [COLOR=#002bb8]Solomon[/COLOR]'s era. He navigated the treacherous political waters of the [COLOR=#002bb8]Roman Empire[/COLOR] during the reigns of [COLOR=#002bb8]Mark Antony[/COLOR], [COLOR=#002bb8]Cleopatra[/COLOR], and Octavius. His leadership also helped to build the economic might of Judea by founding cities, expanding religious sites, developing agricultural projects, and creating a relatively stable government during a particularly tumultuous period. The [COLOR=#002bb8]Jewish[/COLOR] historian [COLOR=#002bb8]Josephus[/COLOR] wrote extensively about Herod's reign both in his The Jewish Wars and Antiquities of the Jews, and thus more is known about Herod than any other Roman client-king in history. Herod is best known today from references to him in the Christian Bible.
Herod's most famous project was rebuilding of the [COLOR=#002bb8]Temple of Jerusalem[/COLOR], greatly enlarging it and making it into the most beautiful in its time. Some of his other achievements include: the rebuilding the water supplies for Jerusalem, building his own palace in Jerusalem, refurbishing and constructing fortresses such as [COLOR=#002bb8]Masada[/COLOR] and Herodion, supporting the financially troubled [COLOR=#002bb8]Olympic Games[/COLOR], and creating whole new cities such as Caesarea Maritima and Sebaste. He also engaged in substantial relief programs during periods of [COLOR=#002bb8]drought[/COLOR] or [COLOR=#002bb8]famine[/COLOR] and influenced [COLOR=#002bb8]Rome[/COLOR] to protect the rights of Jews in the Diaspora. Herod regarded himself as head of the Jews throughout the Roman Empire, of which they comprised approximately 10 percent. This enhanced his power, since Judea was a relatively small province. Herod wanted to make Judea more cosmopolitan and favored Hellenized, [COLOR=#002bb8]Diaspora[/COLOR] Jews in his appointments. His concept was that Jews would be second to none as contributors to art, culture and learning and he no doubt saw himself as a religious reformer, “trying to drag an obstinate and conservative ... people into the enlightened circle of the modern world” (Johnson 1987, 112).
Herod's fatal flaw appears to have been his obsessive insecurity about his place on the throne. However, there is also no doubt that there were indeed many plots against him. Nevertheless, his ruthlessness in dealing with perceived threats has earned him a place in history more for his cruelty than for his many positive accomplishments.

http://www.newworldencyclopedia.org/entry/Herod_the_Great

You are thinking about the father of the Herod mentioned above who lived 37-25 BC. Many lazy researches make exactly the same mistake. There were at least four Herods in the Herodian Dynasty and because they were all cruel rulers it is easy to get them confused. Whilst there is no written proof outside of the Bible about the massacre of the children, it is a fact that the Herod mentioned there lived exactly at the time stated. Even Josephus, the Jewish historian indicates this.
You mentioned that yopu couldn't be bothered checking out the facts but instead refer to "facts" that are going around the internet such as Zeitgeist and Wikopedia (LOL) but in fact are proven errors by foolish people who can't be bothered to intelligently research history above the level of a infant.

but..... how am i supposed to wipe my bum with an iphone ?
#22
Now if the iPhone had the Bible in Hebrew/Aramaic and New Testament Greek, I might trust it but these translations/interpretations into modern languages such as English are a bit dodgy, if you ask me.

Still, it will come in useful when telling the large number of female evangelicals who bother me on my doorstep to buzz off, so I'll mark it hot. Now, it would be great if only I could find one for the male G-d botherers too. :w00t:

I think you are mistaken. I'm unsure what qualifies as "best selling" but Quotations From Chairman Mao, popularly known as "Mao's Little Red Book", is certainly the most widespread, with more than 6.5 billion copies of this single edition printed. If you add together all the various versions and translations, The Bible comes a close second with between 4 and 6 billion copies (many of which have been given away freely, not sold e.g., during missionary work). No other book comes close to either of these two. The Qur’ān (Koran) has had about 800 million printed.

In the case of Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code over 80 million copies were printed and sold ergo best selling does not necessarily indicate intrinsic value. :giggle:

Mistaken?

http://entertainment.howstuffworks.com/arts/literature/21-best-selling-books-of-all-time.htm

Title/Author Copies Sold (millions)

1. The Bible 5,000 - 6,000
2. Quotations from Chairman Mao Zedong by Mao Zedong 900
3. The Qur'an 800


Though missionaries and churches give them away free, they still have to be bought by someone. There is no such thing as a free Bible (or any book for that matter). The cost usually lies with the person giving it away for free.
Quotations from the Little Red Book does not work either, but if you think it does, then we'll have to include the billions of books that are sold such as "Quotations from the Psalms" - "Quotations from Jesus" - "Quatations from Paul" ... I could go on. Then there are in individual Gospel booklets that are bought. The fact is the Bible is the best selling book.

I can guarantee the more people have access to a bible than Mao's Little Red Book which I have never heard of

Agreed. Heard it and seen it before. :)
Btw, thanks to everyone who are keeping this discussion/ debate civilised. It is always interesting to hear the opinion of both sides.

Nice find, heat added!

Obviously some people have a really big problem with God and Christendom. In reality people try to disprove God's existence because they don't want to be held accountable for their sin. At the end of the day, they are the real cowards.

Wow! Someone is spoiling for an argument!The Bible may be the "best selling" book but it is not the most widely printed book. Fact. Period.

Admittedly, best selling is not indicative of best value; look at newspapers! "Best-selling papers in the UK, as of July 2, 2006, according to the Audit Bureau of Circulations are the News of the World (Sunday only), 3,471,415; The Sun, 3,148,700 and The Daily Mail, 2,340,255." Wikipedia.

I bought my first and only copy of "Quotations from Chairman Mao" back in 1966 (and didn't think there was much to it). Yet I have about 15 different translations of the Bible (I studied theology). I don't think Mao's book is better than the Bible, just that more copies have been printed. Fact.

Anyway, now the Bible is available digitally, I guess the argument about how many books are printed or sold is merely academic, isn't it? [Hey, Moses, pass the iTablets! :giggle:]

LOL, no I'm not looking for an arguement. These theads help all of us to get our facts straight. I'm not sure about the Little Red Book but no one really knows how many copies of the Bible have been printed, sold, or distributed throughout the centuries, so I suppose the topic of which book has been printed the most is of no real value.
I too studied theology and now teach it. I have nearly 200 versions of the Bible / New Testament. Apart from the obvious contenders most of them are the work of private individuals - it's amazing whay you can find on the Internet.
Anyway, going to leave the subject there if that's ok :)
