FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) – Many people enjoy Bible study. Choosing which scripture to study though, can sometimes be a challenge. Where do you even start amid all the chapter and verse?
A new app, developed right here in the Tennessee Valley, decides for you.
David Robinson tells WHNT News 19 he was at his Shoals-area church, at a weekly Bible study, when he got the idea for a scripture generating app.
Spin The Bible offers random passages for users to reflect on. Really, Robinson said, it’s just a digital upgrade of his old study method.
“When I was younger I would always flip through the Bible to random scripture and that would be my starting point,” Robinson recalled.
Spin The Bible is easy to use and free to download for iPhones and iPads. A quick shake of your device generates a fresh selection of scripture.
Robinson said he’s not a programmer, so he paid someone to develop the app for him. In the two years since, Spin The Bible has gained popularity and Robinson hopes eventually it will be found in church pew pockets nationwide.
Robinson said the app has already been downloaded in 14 different countries and is available in multiple languages including Spanish.
