DALLAS (ABP) — BaptistWay Press, the publishing arm of Texas Baptists, has launched digital resources in an effort to meet the changing Bible study habits of believers.
BaptistWay recently started offering its Bible studies in a format that is downloadable to an Amazon Kindle e-reader or Kindle e-reader application on a smart phone, computer or tablet. BaptistWay also is offering Bible study materials as downloadable audio files that can be listened to on digital music devices such as iPods for people on the go.
BaptistWay Publisher Ross West said the digital offerings enable teachers, leaders, class members and other Christians to carry the Bible studies more easily. By putting the resources online, individuals also can use the BaptistWay curriculum to study the Bible easily during daily lunch breaks, exercise routines and quiet times.
“With the growing popularity of e-readers, we felt we needed to begin providing Kindle editions of our BaptistWay Bible studies,” West said. “We’re eager to find out how our BaptistWay readers respond. We feel sure that many people will appreciate having our materials readily accessible on their Kindles — including their Kindle apps on PCs, Macs, iPads, iPhones, Blackberries and Android phones.”
For more information about the downloadable mp3 audio files, visit www.baptistwaypress.com. The easiest way to access the BaptistWay Kindle library is by searching for “BaptistWay” on a person’s Kindle or Kindle application.
