Pastors using TB?
Apr 06th, 2011, 4:45pm
 
I was interested to read Rich Shields' post (Jan16). Are there any other pastors around here using TB for church leadership or preaching projects? I think this is a rich field to explore, but I'm not proficient enough to have gone very far yet.

Yes indeed there are!
I use it for: preparing class outlines and content, for organizing groups, general thesis research and structuring, for daily tasks, prayer lists and beginning to use it for sermon prep.
I initially did not use it extensively for detailed exegesis because of lack of support for Hebrew and Greek. The changes in the language support is allowing me to use it more in this regard.

I am interested in what both of you are doing. Ian and Rod, can you put up a screenshot of some of your work? And walk through it a little? I am always interested in knowing how other people approach tasks.

Right now I am teaching Hermeneutics, and have been outlining and taking notes in TB. Nothing sophisticated.

I am not a pastor, but I am a rabbi. I use Tinderbox to prepare lectures, sometimes relying heavily on Outline View (if I'm spending more time preparing) and sometimes Map View (if the relationships are complex or I need to present in a couple of hours from now).

I just put up three screenshots on flickr, but I have no idea how to link to them. My screen name is andysaff.

Good luck, 007
