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 will house all of this content in a beautifully designed app that will be 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.

God Lives Through This App!


I was reading in my YouVersion Bible plan, and stumbled upon a video. It was an amazing overview of the books, within really cool animations.

I showed my 10-year-old a few videos from the app, and he was in awe of the Comic-book-style renderings. He said it made the Bible so much more readable because it became fun. (But I have to admit, I think I'm more hooked on these videos than he is.) There are various artistic creations - from what look like comics, to beautiful scenes that look like they were painted in watercolors.

Of course, the app isn't just a bunch of videos. Do you ever look at scripture and wonder why there are line breaks and poetic-style passages? Well, not any more. Put into actual paragraphs, the Bible is an amazing read. Almost like a novel. Because of that, I find that I'm much better absorbing, and comprehending, what I read. The Bible has always been a bit off to me because of the style. Now I actually enjoy reading it.

Reading and watching is available at your own pace. Want to skip to books & chapters and read stories of what you feel is more important to you at different times? Go ahead. You can always go back and see anything you've skipped, (and also re-read the ones you haven't.)

I don't have even one negative to present. This is by far my favorite app of all time, and I hope everyone realizes the amount of time, effort, and super creativity that has been put into it.


Just what I was looking for

Sourdough Lady

It has daily readings of scripture arranged into about three chapters of Old Testament plus a Psalm, and the reading is often prefaced with a neat video of about five minutes. The video gives background and overview of the book that is featured in the reading.

When I have done daily reading plans in the past, I've been frustrated that I can't find a simple plan that divides the Bible into daily portions going from one cover to the other. I don't like mixing my testaments. The other option is a chronological plan, mixing chapters of books up so they go according to their historicity. Mutilation! This plan goes a book at a time, and the addition of the psalm each day infuses a devotional element that takes the reader out of the narrative and into communion with God.

The only thing I might add to this app is the ability to listen to the Bible readings.

This is Amazing


This app is such a blessing and exactly what I have been looking for. I use it every day. The videos are incredibly well done with artistic creativity while providing legitimate overviews of the books of the Bible that even the most biblically educated would appreciate. You read the scripture in the ESV and then end with a paired psalm. I recommend this app to anyone who's interested in reading the Bible.
My only negative comment is that there is issues with the portrait orientation. When I change my phone's orientation from vertical to horizontal the text changes location, even background color. Then when you flip it back it doesn't even go back to where you left off. So I always have to make sure my phone's orientation lock is on while I'm reading.

Such a fantastic app though. I'm thankful apps like this exist. Thank you!
