Bible resources announce big improvements to their online Bible Study Environment. It is getting good reviews and offers daily Bible reading plans, dictionaries and commentaries plus the Net Bible translation. You can also read articles and theological journals. There’s a powerful search function to find topics, words, phrases within articles, journals and the Bible. Mobile phone apps are available.

They even install on web-equipped ‘feature phones’ as well as smartphones. (Why buy a smartphone?)
