Keeps me on track


I’ve struggled for years to incorporate daily bible reading with my routine. I would start out with my one year bible in hand and before I’d know it my attention had wandered off to daily concerns. I love how this app layers in commentary and short messages with the passages and verses. This helps focus my reading and I find myself meditating on the messages throughout the day, often re-reading later in the day to refresh my memory. I’ve been recommending this app to anyone who’ll listen!!

BY FAR THE BEST way to get through the Bible in a year


This is my second time going through this program. I started Jan 2017 and the BiOY makes it easy and enjoyable to go through the Bible as Nicky Gumbel pulls together a similar thread for the day out of seemingly different passages.

For those who drive to work this is a must. The audio is clear, concise, easy to listen. It was and is part of my daily commute.

Best tip I think is to just keep going. If you’ve missed more than a few days, just start with the day’s reading and pick it up from there. You’re better off doing that instead of trying to keep up and then get discouraged as the days to catch up gets longer and longer.

God bless you Nicky and HTB! If we do not meet, I look forward to thanking you in person in heaven.

Great app for a long time

I have loved this app for several years now, but I think it was the older version. It worked very well. I loved hearing Nicky and Pippa's voices taking me through the Bible every day and I liked the audio bible readings. However, when I bought a new iPad I was forced to get the newest app, which will not automatically upload the new material each day like it's supposed to. I have to delete the app and install a new one every day.
