  • Re: The Impact of Digital Bible Reading

    [quote user="Al Het"]In a setting such as this forum, you are most likely to get answers based on preference, as few of us have been part of objective studies. However, there have now been numerous studies done on retention with regards to paper vs plastic (electronic). People in the field of learning/memory almost universally say the debate is over

    [quote user="Liam Maguire"]I suspect that were we to have performed the same modern scientific tests in the past as we can today, we would have found that over time, this development in modern technology also affected memory and neural-pathways, not to mention the social and religious implications.

    [quote user="Perk"]I can see how coming to a digital Bible first really changes the experience.[/quote] Certainly if someone doesn't have any understanding of the context of what they are reading, digital Bible reading would be a challenge. But this applies to physical bibles too.

    [quote user="Liam Maguire"]I believe these visual elements help me retain the information better, but of course, I can't prove it. [/quote] I think the key to remembering anything is actually engaging in the text. Whatever tools we use that help us do that will surely help us with memory and comprehension.

    [quote user="Sean"]I have a nice, nearly pristine (well, pristine till very recently ) one I've reserved just for preaching and teaching that I bring sometimes and tell myself to use to try to set a good example.

    [quote user="Veli Voipio"]In Africa one person may read a book aloud and a group of people is sitting around listening and they comment the reading regularly (often together as a choir). That kind of process might be quite natural for humans and I just wonder how to apply it in our current igital environment.[/quote] I think you may be on to something

    [quote user="Denise"] A good book on memory is 'Searching for Memory' by Daniel Schacter. It's primarily 'brain' based ... what happens when something bad hurts part of the brain, and how the brain tries to re-build. One interesting part is that memory has much to do with how it arrived ... auditory, visual, language, all different parts of the brain

    [quote user="PetahChristian"]Logos offers much power and convenience in terms of searches and study, but I do think we miss out from the lack of natural Bible markup and notetaking in the margins.[/quote] I'm not convinced that using Logos for study is less effective than taking notes in a physical margin. I think the key thing is actually engaging

  • The Impact of Digital Bible Reading

    Christianity Today just published a very interesting article on the impact of digital Bible reading. https://www.christianitytoday.com/pastors/2019/spring/people-of-ebook.html Probably, like most of you, I've heard more and more research about this. Here is a quote from the article that is typical. [quote]Many survey respondents complained that digital

    [quote user="Jack Hairston"]I love the revised context menu! (And expect to love it even more when my eyes get used to where all the functions have moved to.)[/quote] My opinion exactly. I love the new context menu although I need to get used to it.
