The goal of Read Scripture is that everyone would read the Bible for themselves and discover the truth and beauty of God’s Word.
To this end, we are curating a year-long Bible reading plan and supplementing the reading with amazingly creative videos (produced by our friends at the Bible Project) that explain every book of the Bible, major theological themes of the gospel, and tips on how to read the Bible.
We house all of this content in a beautifully designed app that is available to download in the App Store.
We encourage you to experience Read Scripture in community but it is set up so that you can go through it on your own.
Scripture quotations are from the ESV® Bible (The Holy Bible, English Standard Version®), copyright © 2001 by Crossway, a publishing ministry of Good News Publishers. Used by permission. All rights reserved.
Hark! A Read Scripture Update! In addition to several small bug fixes, we have added a more robust video player to solve connection and audio issues.
Ratings and Reviews
Great app!!! (But don’t use this in isolation)
This app is an excellent reading plan. That is what it is and that’s what the designers made it to be. Get this app if you want a really helpful reading plan to get you through it all the Bible and gain a great view of it.
If you want an app for general use (eg. speaker at Church makes a reference or a friend recommends a book/verse) then I would say use something like YouVersion or something that has each of the books in order and you can search up each verse individually.
I love this app!
I have been using this app for some time now and just love it, the main features are:
- Videos embedded in the app, they help you set the stage when you are starting a new Book pr new area. Really helps to get the overall picture.
- The reading text is already sorted for you so you just need to click and in the same page you have 2-3 chapters of different books for you.
I recommend this app and thank the team behind the scenes: thank you!
Everything about this app is truly inspired. The animated introductions to each book of the Bible are concise, but never boring. The path through Scripture is very easy to follow and the whole thing has a very modern outlook, that would suit most people. This app and the contents therein make you want to read and read and read Scripture until you’ve fully appreciated every book. Absolutely brilliant.
