The S.O.A.P. method of Bible Study is one of the most popular and effective ways to study and journal the Bible.
It's very easy to learn, and will serve as a template to help you dig deeper into what God's word has to say to you.
What Is SOAP?
S.O.A.P. stands for scripture, observation,application, and prayer. It's a very effective way to study The Bible while journaling your thoughts and recording how God is speaking to you during your reading.
How To SOAP?
The process is very simple and takes a few minutes to understand.
Scripture: During your reading, once you find a particular scripture that speaks to you, write it down (or look it up using our built-in KJV bible)
Observation: What is the context of the verse? Who is writing it? What is it about this scripture that is speaking to you?
Application: How can you apply this verse to your life? What are some action steps that you can take?
Prayer: Pray about the scripture and ask God to help you apply it.
Ratings and Reviews
I agree with the person who said that we got our $2 worth. There are very few other Bible journals out there so I am grateful for this one. I do wish as one person suggested that we could adjust fonts, etc. I also wish that when the app looks up a Bible verse that it would give you the option of choosing more than one at a time. As it is you have to go back in and look up the next verse again and insert for each verse you would like to include in your journal for the day.
I hope to use this a lot.
Beware! It looks like this app has been abandoned and it hasn’t been updated in more than two years. Since I wrote my earlier review (below) the disappearing daily entries have become more frequent and I’m going to have to abandon this app.
I use this app (almost) every day and continue to find it useful and helpful. But it is in serious need of an update to fix bugs and hopefully add features. My biggest complaint is that my daily entries sometimes disappear completely. I’ll spend a half hour or so writing and then go back later in the day and realize that day’s entry is completely blank. Other times portions of my entries are there but other parts are not saved.
You’ve got a good app here, please update it to fix these bugs!
Great app but...
Great app! It allows me to journal my thoughts and put down my prayer in writing. Recently, we were taught a way to enrich our relationship with God pretty much the SOAP way.
I would give this app a 4-star rating if it allows me to format my entries - make fonts bigger, most especially that I do not have 20/20 vision. A 5-star rating if it provides a variety of fonts, allowing fonts to be in bold, italics, underscored, providing a variety of backgrounds to choose from.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
