YouVersion::Is it 4 u?

I've been watching this new website called YouVersion that is an interactive online bible. Here's what they say about themselves:

Welcome to YouVersion

I'm eager to find something online that is truly a tool and help for online bible reading and such. This site seems to approach that although it has a way to go. I like the use of technology but it's still pretty restrictive in what you can do. Kudos to Lifechurch.tv for their pioneering efforts here. I noticed that Northpoint.org church has plugged it as well.

Anyway, check it out and get back to me here. Tell me what you like and what you don't. Tell me what you wish it had that it doesn't. I'm trying to figure out how it can help us and how we should promote it. I'd like to promote it when we do our series through Romans when I challenge our church to really dig into God's word.

Another tool that I found very helpful is echoprayer.
