“We have a lot of pastors and a lot of church leaders that are big fans and users of YouVersion, and they actually encourage it from the pulpit. Some of them even teach from their phone using it as their Bible from stage. So that’s done a lot to reduce some of the reservations or hesitation,” Gruenewald says.
Gruenewald is quick to point out that YouVersion isn’t meant to replace the traditional Bible, but to create more opportunities for Bible reading and to take down barriers for Bible engagement.
