    I sometimes use my iPad in church. It's easy to highlight certain passages or bookmark them for later. Also, I can take notes on my iPad, so I'm just switching back and forth between apps (Glo Bible and Notes) rather than shuffling my Bible and notebook around. I also don't have to keep up with pens (I use a red pen for Bible highlighting and a black pen for note taking). I find the iPad more convenient.

    Although last week I took my actual Bible. Sometimes it just feels good to flip through its pages.

    I dont see any problems using a e-bible. But I like to flip through mine, and just open a random book and start reading, i would see that a bit harder on an ipad. of course, i am biased towards print books as a general rule. Im a young person and already old :p

    I'm actually kind of glad that last weekend I left my iPad at home and took my actual Bible. Right before service, I opened it to a random page. A couple minutes later our Associate Pastor asked us to flip to the first verse of the service, in Psalm 127. I looked down and my Bible was already opened to that page. That was pretty awesome.

    I'm with you on that Newmar. I have a kindle but to me nothing beats the "old school" way.

    I prefer to take my bible to church. I do have a bible app on my phone that I use mostly during lunchtime at work.

    I got a lot of looks using mine from some members when they first saw it. At the 'meet your neighbor dance' they always make it a point to ask what I'm doing. Then everything is all good.

    Honestly, short of one or two verses, my church prints the scripture on the bulletin. So I barely use it.

    Whatever works for each individual is fine, as long as God's word is read, studied and preached.
