With this much content, how can you sort it all out to see what’s relevant for your Bible study?

Here are three ways the Olive Tree Bible App makes the Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible even more powerful.

THE RESOURCE GUIDE

Open your favorite Bible in the main window and open the Study Center.  As you scroll through the Bible text, the Resource Guide keeps up with you. It searches through all the books in your library for content related to the passage in the main window.

If you scroll down the resource guide results, you will see the section headings “People,” “Places,” and “Topics.”

Tap on the topic you want to learn more about.  I chose “Altar” in this example. Then the app brings you results from within the resources you have on your device. This is where you will find results from the Zondervan Encyclopedia of the Bible.

You’ll see that the resource has the words “Article on ALTAR” underneath the book cover.  Tap on the book cover and the app will take you directly to the article within the encyclopedia.  Then you can scroll down and read the entire article without having to leave your Bible text.

    I was a bit confused by your article till I noticed you used an ipad for your app. Is there a way in the Windows app to use search to only search the Zondervan Encyclopedia? It wants to search all my books.
