YouBible reminds me of the forthcoming Lifechurch.tv’s YouVersion. Anyone can post commentary on any portion of the Bible. There’s also an associated YouTheology where folks can post their thoughts under various theological categories.
This reminded me of a discussion some of us had some time ago under
While I do believe there is a place for open source biblical commentary and theology (and perhaps I should also mention that LifeChurch.tv’s offering is meant to be more than a place of traditional biblical commentary), I also think there’s something to be said for a process where folks weight carefully whether a book should be published before time, money, and resources are invested in it.
There is a place for both I think but I’d hate to see any new approach to this kind of reflection eclipse the publication of well-considered, well-vetted theological and exegetical reflection. Just because something is technically possible, doesn’t mean it’s always preferable.
