    Intricate thats a cool piece. Im commencement to see a occur in retro cunning themed technique lately with the us old farts who grew up with a nintendo controller in hand. The craftsmanship work looks great, with a infantile spunk of video games we loved. This is a subtle retrospective if anything of where our epoch came from.

  5. I like this post and I have gone ahead and bookmarked it as – http://globible.com/blog/?p=81 at Digg.com so everone on my email list can read your post as well. I used – ” Fast Company: “‘Glo’ Digital Bible Answers: What Would Jesus Click?” « Glo Bible: Glo Blog ” as the entry on Digg and I might add it to one of my Squidoo pages as a link if the reaction from my email list is good. Thanks again, Great stuff.

    I never even heard of this until I was googling around today. The HD video fot he holy sites is what I look forward to. Always good to watch.

  7. Great post. Will check back!

  8. Very novel way. I always loved reading NIV bible now this feature would be really good specially while reading it with my 2 children !

  9. As Newsweek points out, the content of Glo is steadfastly uncontroversial. For example, it doesn’t take a stance on homosexuality or evolution.

    We were always taught that reading anything except the actual Bible was sin. We were also told not to read the NIV. But since switching churches and reading and studying the NIV, my understanding has increased dramatically. Now, I can study the Scriptures right from my computer and I don’t have to be online to do! Thanks, for the help and God Bless!
