Here's a great way to hear from people at the intersection of faith and technology: the Faith Leads Tech conference. It's in Nashville on Nov. 9th. Get tickets here and come find me if you can make it! http://faithleads.tech/

Google organizes the world's information with the Knowledge Graph. Facebook captures our relationships and experiences with the Social Graph. I am organizing subjects of the Bible the same way for the next generation of apps.

Why re-make a map that's already in the back of your Bible? This intro video answers that question, with a few action shots tossed in!

JUST RELEASED: A new map of Paul's missionary journeys with Roman provinces, roads, and cities. Control which routes to see and click a place for details. Try it here: https://viz.bible/journeys/

When I look at the maps in the back of my Bible, I want to be able to zoom in closer and tap to get all the information I need, just like I can on my phone. I made this map so you can do that (even on small touch screens).

I love this map from the 1611 KJV. We just don't make illustrations this good anymore to go with our family Bibles, study Bibles, or study helps. It's all about low-cost mass production today. I'd be thrilled to have a colorized reproduction of this.

Updated with 2017 survey data: the extreme left is now even more extreme. Last year I used data from Pew Research and inspiration from their animated chart (below) to highlight how the ideological divide doubled over the last decade. You could say both parties became more extreme in that time, but this new data shows that one side has clearly become more one-sided than the other.

I should mention this is based on surveys of voter ideology. Measuring Congress yields different results.
