500 Life-studies App
We are happy to announce the launch of the 500 Life-studies app. It is designed to help believers to become constituted with the truth by using the Life-study of the Bible for their spiritual nourishment and growth.
This app allows users to:
1) create custom reading schedules;
2) read directly in the app via a built-in reader or http://ministrybooks.org integration; and
3) track their progress toward different milestones.
The app is now available for free download on the Google Play Store and Apple App Store. For additional resources and information, please visit http://500lifestudies.org.
- Please pray that this digital tool will be useful in bringing in a new culture of reading the Life-studies among the churches.
