Glo is the newest digital bible study tool from Zondervan.  Glo is a inexpensive highly visual bible study tool for the masses.  This tool does not have the depth of Greek / Hebrew tools, concordances, and commentaries that many preachers, teachers, and pastors want.  However for the regular church member or small group leader this is a phenomenal resource.

The Spiritual Home Base and use of Lenses are brilliant breakthroughs for a digital tool.

The Spiritual Home Base tracks and reports your progress of what you have read, watched, experienced, as well as how much time you've spent in Glo.

The Lenses allow you do drill down in to content using a tagging system.  Just think of this as very powerful topical and timeline search.  To to to see more.

The only downfall I have seen with Glo is only avaliable on the Windows Operating Systems.  And I'm waiting to see how well their share and socialize functions work.  Haven't seen much in their tutorial and demos.

Coming in at a very modest price tag of $50, Glo is a great bible study software!

    I recently installed Glo myself. I agree that it is visually stunning, and the search features are tremendous.

    Looking at the "coming soon" promotions for Glo, it appears that they have ambitious plans to add new features and additional content over the next year.

    They're planning to add more Bible translations, and I've seen requests from customers for word study tools. I imagine word studies will eventually be incorporated into Glo.

    It's a brand new product with some limitations, but the framework is in place to establish a great Bible study resource as it matures -- for a relatively low cost. (I got mine for $50 at Amazon.)

    You may also want to look at e-Sword. This is a comprehensive package that includes an assortment of Bibles and commentaries. Plus it's all FREE!
