New for PocketBible: Dictionary of Christian Spirituality

Posted on: May 30th, 2012 by Michelle Stramel 1 Comment


Christian Spirituality. Spiritual Formation. Spiritual Theology. All have become important concepts in the global evangelical community. The Dictionary of Christian Spirituality, now available for PocketBible and MyBible, is an accessible and reliable academic resource for information on the full range of Christian traditions of spirituality. It is also attentive to otherwise neglected topics, concerns, and formative figures in the evangelical tradition of spirituality.

Part One of the dictionary gives you 34 “integrative perspective” essays that provide insight into the major themes of Christian spirituality. Part Two of the dictionary provides nearly seven hundred shorter length articles on historical Christian movements, biographical profiles, and other concepts and topics pertinent to the study of Christian spirituality. The articles offer a discerning orientation to the wealth of ecumenical resources available, exploring the similarities and differences between Christianity and alternate spiritualties. All in all a singular reference filled with informative, interesting articles on Christian spirituality that you won’t find elsewhere.

The Dictionary of Christian Spirituality sells for $31.99 and can be used with PocketBible for iOS, Android, Windows PC and Windows Mobile. It is also available for use with MyBible for Palm OS.

New for PocketBible: KJV and NIV Commentary

Posted on: May 17th, 2012 by Michelle Stramel No Comments

We have released new commentary for use with PocketBible and MyBible, Zondervan King James Version Commentary. The two volumes in this set can be purchased separately or as a bundle:

The Zondervan KJV Commentary is based on the best-selling Zondervan KJV Study Bible. Study notes have been expanded by a group of conservative, evangelical scholars from a wide range of denominations to encompass the two volumes of commentary. Includes verse-by-verse exposition that is based on the King James Version text.

Also available for use with PocketBible and MyBible is the NIV Bible Study Commentary from Zondervan. This is a one-volume commentary designed to be a companion to your reading of the New International Version (NIV) Bible. It is more of a quick reference resource rather than an in-depth study tool. Valuable when you want to get an overview rather than diving deep into a passage.

Jeff Wheeler

My friend and Laridian co-founder Jeff Wheeler passed away this morning, the victim of a rare and particularly aggressive form of cancer. He was 49.

Jeff and I worked together for 27 years at three different companies and founded Laridian together. The features that you love in QuickVerse and PocketBible and which you often praise me for were likely Jeff’s ideas and his doing. If I didn’t build on Jeff’s foundation, he would dig me a new foundation while I was paying attention to something else. He was my sounding board and my reference library. While being all this to me, he still managed to deeply impact his family for Christ and touch others through his home school choir, his leadership in his local church, and his service to his denomination’s state board.

Men like this do not pass this way often. Well lived, Jeff.
