OPTION 2 The Bible: NewLife APP  preview link

By The Gideons, 1-2 meetups, free app resources

SUBJECTS COVERED:  WHAT IS THE BIBLE? // HOW DID THE BIBLE COME TO US? // HOW RELIABLE AND ACCURATE IS THE BIBLE WE HAVE TODAY? // HOW SHOULD I READ THE BIBLE? // HOW COULD THE BIBLE BE RELEVANT TO MY LIFE TODAY?

DESCRIPTIONS:   The Gideons have a new, well made app that has a section for people to explore some questions they have including those concerning the Bible.  These are not worksheets but more like small articles and some are repeat information given in other sections but it provides links for those who want to dig deeper.  Keep in mind that disciple making involves relationship so you don’t want the person you are working with to download the app and investigate on their own.  Even if they have the app, process the information together.  Check out a video preview of the NewLife app:
