Ratings and Reviews
I’m so glad I found this, it’s given me just what I’ve been looking for—a place where I can experience God and be welcome, without having to search hard to find the rare devotional entry that doesn’t force a traditional view of scripture down my throat, as happens in most bible apps.
The people writing reviews saying that this app is unnecessary or causing division by clumping progressives in one place don’t seem to understand what it’s like to live as someone who is unwelcome in traditional Christian spaces. This is such a beautiful oasis where I can simply relax into the presence of God, rather than having to intellectualize and debate and try to prove my worth as a gay man. Traditional Christianity has come close to forcing me away from God entirely, and I’m so happy to have found this app so that I can enjoy the faith practices that I miss so much, and do so in a healthy life-giving way.
And as far as the depth of the content—some is very Bible-centered, and some is more topical. Which is exactly what you need in an app that reaches people at any stage of their journey, and plenty of traditional bible apps are the same way. Just because some more conservative reviewers don’t agree with some of the interpretations of scripture they find here doesn’t mean the content is wrong or shallow.
It’s finally here!
I’ve been staying up to date with Our Bible and I’m thrilled that it is finally here. This is going to be a wonderful resource for so many Christians who find themselves on the margins. I’m really happy with the app in its final state. Things feel much smoother and more intuitive than they did when the app was in beta. I will say that the only thing I’d like to see is a way to interact with other readers, whether that’s via message boards or through some external app.
Keep up the good work and thank you for all you do!
The Bible is already pro-woman. It’s anti-ignoring poverty. It’s full of grace. It has stories of broken people who did messed-up stuff and faced real struggle, but through faith in Jesus are restored to his glory. It also tells of the beauty of his life, death, and resurrection. This app does not embrace need for Jesus or acknowledge that God’s Laws were given as a beautiful act of mercy. While the app has talented writers, the substance is shallow and often opposing what the whole Scriptures say.
My other concern is it’s one step further from asking tough questions and listening to viewpoints as progressives and conservatives together. We as all Christians are called to that as the Church. Lumping a “Progressive” app together sends the message of a need for division and apathy towards reconciliation.
