Guidelines let you take your Bible study with you wherever you go. The week-by-week structure inspires thought, prayer and action and supports both daily and intense bursts of reading and reflection. Try before you buy with our sample readings then decide on which length of subscription you'd like to the Guideline service.

This unique Bible reading resource offers in-depth study, drawing on the insights of current scholarship. It is written by a global pool of leading scholars and represents a stimulating and thought provoking breadth of Christian tradition. This new Guidelines app means that you can build your own personal reference library to keep on your iPhone.

The weekly readings or Guidelines are broken into six separate sections, with an introduction giving context to the passage and a final section providing points for thought and prayer. Fit your readings around your work or home routine, and read as many or few sections as you wish on any given day. Each contributor makes suggestions of books for further study.

Major potential!

I love the insightful writings and the link to the reference scripture. I've found it thought provoking and enlightening. Two things are keeping me from giving you a 5 star rating, first- if I power the iPad down, it returns me to the latest study, not to the one I was reading. Consequently, I have to scroll thru and search for the one I last read. Second, there are occasional references in the writings to scriptures that are not linked, so for me to see the quote in context, I have to shut down, look it up, and then return to my reading.

A Rip Off!

I want my money back! It was fine until I purchases the 12 month plan for 14:95. It crashes and takes forever to open up since. The other thing is that the book of Judges can't be found and I still can't get access to the other guidelines for later months or even read the scriptures. I have purchased 12 month plan. What is this?

Full of ideas

This is exactly how a bible study app should work. Links out in case you don't have a bible handy.
