NASHVILLE, April 19, 2011 /Christian Newswire/ -- LifeWay Christian Resources announced today the release of the Resurrection iWitness iPad app into Apple's App Store.
Aaron Linne, executive producer of digital marketing for LifeWay's B&H Publishing Group, said the highly interactive experience takes people through the collection of evidence for the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The background for this app release comes from author and designer Doug Powell who has previously published the Holman Quick Source Guide to Christian Apologetics.
The app is now available in iTunes for $.99.
"This app offers more than just text on a page," said Linne. "It is a tactile, sensory exploratory experience where users discover clues about the resurrection and alternative theories surrounding the resurrection of Jesus Christ."
The Resurrection iWitness iPad app adds to LifeWay's growing catalog of more than 20 other apps designed for Apple, Android and Xbox.
"The Resurrection iWitness app was designed for the rising generation to explore information in their native experience," Linne said. "We challenge users to scientifically look at the evidence presented and decide for themselves after taking an investigative journalistic approach to discover the truth about Christ."
The app encourages users to engage seven theories of Christ’s resurrection and draws from extra-biblical sources including The Gospel of Barnabas, Toledoth Jesu and the Qu'ran.
"This app is a great plug-and-play resource for people to talk apologetically about the resurrection across a coffee table or on a big-screen church presentation."
