The Resource Guide is the most powerful feature in the Olive Tree Bible App. As you read your Bible in the main window, the Resource Guide follows along and displays relevant Bible study information from your study notes, commentaries, maps and more.
Gain knowledge on any passage of the Bible, exactly when you need it. The Resource Guide will let you know when information in this title is relevant to anything in the main window. It will also track along with you as you read through the Bible.
Quickly find information about a book of the Bible, its author, date, audience, purpose, and other topics. If you have an introduction to the book of the Bible you're currently reading, the Resource Guide will make it easily accessible for you.
Did your resource mention a passage of Scripture, but you can't remember what the verse says? Never fear! Tap the linked verse and a pop-up window will appear, giving you quick and easy access to the verse in context.
Available for: iPad, iPhone, Android, Kindle Fire, Mac, and Windows Desktop, running app version 5.9 and above.
There are commentaries, and there are books on preaching - but very few books that are specifically geared to the preacher or Bible teacher tackling a series on a Bible book or doctrinal theme. Key features of books in this series are introductory chapters on 'getting our bearings in the book' and 'planning a series'. The 'meat of the book' then works systematically through a suggested series, working with the Bible teacher from text to sermon or talk. Each chapter ends with a suggested preaching / teaching outline and a detailed Bible study which would be ideal for small groups.
Books in this series are aimed at developing confidence in handling God's Word in a variety of contexts. Whether you are a preacher, a small group leader or youth worker, these books will give you the necessary tools for teaching.
Teaching Acts is a welcome addition to the series. Acts is a tough book to teach, but vital to the church in every generation.
The Teaching the Bible series is designed to help the pastor/preacher, a small group leader or a youth worker teach their way through a Biblical book. It will help you in planning and executing a lesson advising on background, structure, key points and application. They are all geared to teach you the truth of Scripture. This series is published in conjunction with Proclamation Trust Media whose aim is to encourage ministry that seeks above all to expound the Bible as God’s Word for today.
