Glo Digital Bible from Immersion Digital LLC

Updated on January 24, 2010

While I was at CES, I saw a product that could easily get those who hate the Bible into the Bible.  Yes, I know what this sounds like.  If you start talking about the Bible, people automatically think of some sort of right-wing pre-programmed Christian type.  

I am a Christian guy, and I was grateful to get a chance to try out Glo from Immersion Digital LLC, and it is a great interactive Bible.  Not only that, it is quite user-friendly as well.  From the moment it was loaded onto the computer, it was pretty simple to go to the visual menu, and focus on the book, chapter, and verse with just a few clicks.

In addition to the interactive Bible, the Glo main menu gives the user access to an Atlas to see where the stories of the Bible occurred.  It also has a Timeline so the user can see what happened in The Book chronologically, and zoom in on any part in the timeline that he or she wishes.  There is even a Topical menu to address any biblical content by a topic, person, or subject matter that the user wants. 

That was just the first disc being loaded.  The program had two other discs that allow the user can go through the interactive media.  Glo has 3.5 hours of HD video with on-location footage and insight from scholars like Norman Geisler, Max Lucado, William P. Young, Dr. Joel Hunter, Leen Ritmeyer and Avner Goren.  It also has more than 550 virtual tours, 2,300 high-resolution photos, 7,500 encyclopeida articles, and 140 maps.  It also has artwork, audio, web content, plus more.   

Another feature of Glo is the “Spiritual Home Base”, this is a customizable reading plan enables the user to set goals and read the Bible at one’s own pace.  It has a Browse and Filter program that will focus on whatever content the user wishes and then get all the pictures or videos related subject matter.  It also has a “how do you feel” feature that keeps track of what you are reading. 

The company plans to make a lot of changes to the 2010 version, such as bookmarks, scripture, and media that allow users temporary authorization so they can share with friends.  The 2010 version also has the entire Bible in audio format, as well as some new web content.  It is also planning on going Mobile and being web accessible to PCs that don’t have Glo installed on them. 

You should be able to get the Glo Digital Bible for about $50.31 off of Amazon
