Information technology has found its way into bible study in the world in recent time as a new bible study application, ‘To you Bible App’ was recently launched in Nigeria by one of the country’s US based cleric, Pastor Gregory Lanre Ijiwola.
Speaking at a press briefing held in Lagos recently, to unveil the application, Pastor Ijiwola, while introducing the Bible App, described it as an application that will revolutionise the user’s approach to meditating on God’s Word.
The cleric said the app remained the only one of its kind in the world, adding that the application has been endorsed by a number of reputable clerics within and outside Nigeria including the American Bible Society, which endorsed it as the Most Innovative Apps.
Others are Pastor Sunday Adelaja, Rev. Sam Adeyemi, Leke Alder, among others.
Explaining the Bible App background, Ijiwola said, “ToYouBible is a personalised Bible App for daily reading, meditations and Bible study. It was an idea that came to Gregory Lanre Ijiwola (pastorlan.com) to create an app that helps readers of God’s word enjoy a more personalized experience in their Scripture readings and meditations."
Explaining the reason for the app, the cleric said, “The Bible contains thousands of wonderful promises to be trusted, believed and appropriated in the life of the reader. When these promises are read, they often sound generalised and distant.
“ToYouBible instantly populates the name of the reader in the text of scriptures, personalising the relevant passages makes Bible-reading come alive, enhancing the devotional and faith-building experience of the readers," Ijiwola said.
The app is currently available on the Apple Store and the Google Play Store respectively. It is also available on the iOS and Android devices, and can be downloaded on the link is http://ToYouBible.com.
According to Ijiwola, the app is already downloaded in the thousands from over 35 nations such as: United States United Kingdom, Canada, Rwanda, Australia, Turkey United Arab Emirates, India, Latvia, Netherlands, Namibia,,South Africa, Norway Spain, Switzerland, Nigeria, New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Philippines, Belgium, France, Hungary, Indonesia, among others.
The bible app is a unique one, helps readers of God’s word enjoy a more personalized experience in their Scripture readings and meditations." For Instance 'The Lord is my shepherd' will be personalized as 'The Lord is Tope's Shepherd'. I like it oo. Please download yours
