The Preacher’s Library

One of my favorite projects is The Preacher’s Library. I created it (with the help of Dennis Rogers of TheWord) some two years ago. The website is a free online software geared to help Bible students with their studies. The end goal is much more larger than what the app does today, but it is a great start and so much help as it is now.

It is comparative to the famous LibraryThing software. You can add books to your own library and provide reviews, tags, and ratings to these books. However, it is bent on helping the Bible student and not just the unqualified reader. Users of The Preacher’s Library are readers of the Bible and books that help their Christian walk. Therefore, there are other features of it that lean toward its audience. For example, users can add notes to their books and use the notes in many different ways (as future features are added). I like to call it the online book rolodex.

So, why mention it today? Although the app has existed for over two years, it has never had such a facelift like it has this past weekend. The entire system was rebuilt from the ground up. Thus, the interface is more user-friendly and certainly easy. Also, the backend (or the parts underneath the hood) were programmed in such a way that future enhancements (as users have requested) can easily be integrated. I hope and expect many of these enhancements to be added in the next few weeks.

For now, swing over to The Preacher’s Library and set up your account for free. Give it a try and see if it helps you in your studies. Then, let me know what you think. Let me know what you would like to see.
