The Bible for iPhones and Kindles

New ways to download the Good Book.

Like so many Christians, Kevin McNeese carries his bible to church on Sundays. He “pops it open,” he says, and follows along as the pastor reads that week’s chapter and verse from the pulpit. For fun, McNeese reads additional, sometimes extensive, Bible commentary. At the conclusion of the service, he closes his Bible—and puts it in his pocket. He used to carry the Good Book to church, he says, but now, thanks to an app installed on his iPhone, “my Bible is with me all the time.”
