It’s the Holman Christian Standard Bible … but it’s a lot more than a regular Bible – and it’s all free. Point to any word and learn about the Hebrew or Greek. Hover over any footnote and see an explanatory pop-up. Check out the free word studies, dive into the topical concordance, look up terms in the free Bible dictionary, and even listen to videos and other media about each scripture. Bottom line: If you’ve got the bandwidth and access to the internet, the Holman Study Bible online is one of the best deals in town. In fact, if you register (also free), it’ll save your notes, highlighting, and all your accompanying work.
But maybe you have a similar site at some other Bible publishing house. I don’t know of many for this price. Do you? If so, please jot a note in the Comments after this item on the web. Thanks in advance for any resources you can share.
Remember MissionMakr.com, that great site that would help you through your short-term trip prep, all your communication, and all your on-field reporting? Remember how it went south when the previous owners let it die? Well never fear — it’s alive again! A dedicated servant-heart named Rick has relaunched it better than ever. Check it out today and compare it to any other site for short-term trip management. We think you’ll find it favorable.

I’ve shared with you that a colleague or two and I have been using Nozbe for task management. Every once and awhile I catch a glimpse of something else and I wonder if it would be better. Then, by the time I check it out, I realize that I probably could have completed two or three tasks on my to do list, instead. :-) This past week, I checked out…
First, I’ll tell you up front, this app is currently limited to just two (count ‘em, 2!) users. However, we have a personal promise from the developer that they’re working on that limitation. Having said that, if you and your cohort (just 2, mind you) would like to try this program, it looks like it does have some strong points. It’s based on David Allen’s “GTD” strategy, which we like. It has the main features like Projects, Contexts and Next Actions. But it also other unique features like a “Goals & Vision Wall,” with multiple projects possible under each goal. You can even stash inspiring pictures linked to your goals, and have them delivered to your e-mail daily so you are motivated to take action. Goals can have Checklists for the repetitive tasks that you have to do, on a regular basis. It integrates with Evernote (shouldn’t everything?). It has native iPhone and Android native Apps that work offline and then Sync (shouldn’t everyone?), and also a mobile-web version that works from any mobile browser. A public API for third-party integrations is available too. So — if there are only two of you now, of if you’re planning on firing a bunch of people, check out gtdagenda. Or keep watch until they can add users. For what it’s worth.
Runway Languages is a new online language learning tool based on the Language Acquisition Project created by Dwight Gradin at Mission Training International.
Runway currently offers Mandarin Chinese but is looking for partners to help them develop content in additional languages. This is a revenue generating opportunity. They are interested in developing any language that that would be useful for Kingdom work. Contact J.D. at
