Source Materials – Bible Gateway.com When I’m writing (I keep my journal online in the form of this blog), it’s really helpful to have an online bible that is incredibly easy to search by text, topic or keyword.
I most frequently use BibleGateway.com to easily find and link the scripture I’m referring to. This is particularly handy when searching for a passage by keywords (no, I am nowhere near memorizing the bible yet!).
For bloggers, there is also a handy embedding feature that allows you to search for the passage you want, and to embed it into your blog with one click. Bible Gateway is also really nice for flipping between translations, browsing passages by themes (e.g., mourning or eschatology) and listening to audio versions of the text.
