BibleTech’s presenters come from a diverse background of educators, programmers, developers, publishers, executives and ministry leaders. This diversity provides a well-rounded platform from which to speak about the number of ways that technology is influencing how we approach and study the Scriptures.
There are over 25 sessions including:
- Why Another Greek New Testament?Rick Brannan, Information Architect at Logos Bible Software, discusses the The Greek New Testament: SBL Edition (SBLGNT, also known as the SBL Greek New Testament), edited by Michael W. Holmes. Where did this new edition of the Greek New Testament come from? Why was it done? And more importantly for the BibleTech audience, how was it done?
- The Convergence of Technology and Prayer
David Gagne, the Media Post Production System Administrator for the Kansas City International House of Prayer, will talk about how the prayer movement globally is being strengthened through use of technology and the benefits and challenges of maintaining a life of prayer while working long hours on technology.
- Making Bible Search Results RelevantZondervan’s
Internet Systems Architect, Stephen Smith, discusses how, as an industry, we tune our search engines to handle specialized queries while ignoring common obstacles that people face when searching the Bible. Our goal should be to interpret the intent of everyone—from the scholar to the casual user of a mobile Bible app—and connect them with the biblical text they’re seeking.
- Educating the 21st Century Pastor: The Intersection of Theology and Technology
Knox Theological Seminary’s Dean of Distance Education, Jonathan Smith, will look at what theological education looks like in the 21st century.
