Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel: Apps bring religion into the 21st century

Posted by Kendall Harmon

Most days after work, Diane Werle can be found hunkered down and reading her Bible, often at a neighborhood coffee shop.

A devout Christian, Werle covers at least a chapter a day. And she takes detailed notes, often flipping from book to book researching and double-checking passages.

There was a time when Werle carried her leather-bound and dog-eared Bible everywhere she went, scribbling in the margins as she read. These days she accesses the word and makes her notes on her iPod Touch.

"It's nice to have a portable and easily accessible copy with you when you're out and about," said Werle, who attends the nondenominational New Day Church in Greendale. "You never know when you might get into a discussion with a friend about what it does or doesn't say, or run into someone who has questions."

Read it all.
