An answer to prayer 5/5
By Great Sleep Coach!
Several years ago I started reading through the Bible because I wanted to get the full picture. I almost completed the task, but became incredibly discouraged because I didn't grasp the significance of the much of the reading of the Old Testament. I finally gave up within sight of my goal! That was two years ago almost to the day.
This morning I happened on this app and I am wild with excitement. This app is engaging beyond belief and gives me the background information to complete my goal!!!! I am so blessed!!! Thank you Crazy Love Ministeries!!! BTW how do I give you a ten star rating!!!
Thank you! 5/5
I rarely write reviews but had to just say thank you and encourage others to use this incredible app! Its sorta unbelievable this is free. The videos are so well done and this may be the best tool I've ever used to read through and better understand the Bible!
It's a good reading plan 3/5
By Heart, Soul, Strength, & Mind
I like the layout of the video, scripture, and psalm, but I wish I could highlight verses and write thoughts. It's a great app to get you reading, but not nearly as interactive as I would like. For example, I really like the Word of Promise layout and the Holman Christian Standard Bible digital version. Just being able to highlight, comment, and customize my experience helps me to be more intimate with my Lord.
Best Bible app ever 5/5
By Paxton LaQua
I have been thanking God ever since I've downloaded this app. Get it Get it Get it Get it!!!!!!
AMAZING app 5/5
It's hard to believe this app is free. Incredible design and videos that help being the Bible to life in a visual way. Great for the new Christian as well as the veteran.
Truth will set you free, Read the Scriptures 5/5
I love the Bible and I read it, listen to it and study it. However, Read Scripture series is incredibly insightful and does so much to give need information that helps to read the Bible intellegently. I could not recommend this more highly!
Incredibly Helpful 5/5
Bible project has an brilliant way of teaching scripture and fueling my excitement to explore the Bible!
Great app for Bible reading 4/5
I love the Bible project and this app with all the features. One thing I would like them to add is audio Bible for the whole Bible so the reader can listen to it. Reading is great but listening to the Word is also great for meditation... specially on the go. Thanks and blessings,
Just what I was looking for 5/5
By 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.

Found this ap a while back and highly recommend it ! Thank you
iPhone 5 issue with videos 4/5
Great app, but videos have trouble playing on iPhone 5 with latest iOS.
Good app with one exception 4/5
I have found myself very impressed with this app. I was turned onto it by watching The Bible Project videos on YouTube. However, the videos do not work on the app itself. I hope that this can be fixed in the future.
Love this Bible app! 5/5
This is one of the best Bible apps I have ever downloaded. The animated stories really help explain some of the more "difficult to understand verses" in the Old Testament. Thank you and may God bless your project!
Best thing since the App Store itself!! 5/5
This app is incredible! Not only does it provide embedded access to the animated bible series videos we've come to love, it's also got the scriptures in it as well. I love the integrations and the clean usefulness of the design. I've been looking for a replacement for the YouVersion bible myself and was afraid as a developer I'd have to make one on my own time. So glad I found this instead!! Job well done! 😊👊🏽
In love with the Word! 5/5
This app is by far my favorite I've ever used. I love the Bible Project and always wanted the videos to come in an app form and here it is! I love it so much. This has helped me engage with the Word and Papa God on newer, deeper levels. Thank you so much!
Great Reading Plan 5/5
If you are looking for a good bible reading plan, I recommend this App.
The videos that are before most readings are really insightful. They really show that even since the beginning, in the book of Genesis, everything was pointing towards Jesus. I think too often people look at the Old And New Testaments as separate. We even think of the stories within them as separate. This study really helps you see how the stories within make one big story about Christ.
Brilliant app 5/5
I love the way it's structured and the videos are great. So well done!
Reading the Word is exciting! 5/5
BEST BIBLE APP EVER! I was the typical Christian where I struggled to read the Word because I didn't know where to start and it typically got boring. Since I've downloaded this app I'm excited to read the Word daily, I rant about this app, it keeps me organized and it breaks the Word down in ways I've never heard explained (and I've been in church all my life)! This is one download you won't regret, thank you to the team that started this! Thank you Jesus!
Great Way to Understand the Bible 5/5
I watched some of their videos on YouTube and someone had posted they had an app, I had to download. All the skills and effort that went forth into this project/work of art is awesome. You guys are really helping folks out here ❤️
Phenomenal App 5/5
The videos in this app are anointed. Even after being in the church for 35 years and reading the Bible through many times, I learn something new with each video. Powerful!
Great App 4/5
Love the Bible Project and their work. Wished it would sync between devices.
Gift wrapped app 5/5
By beautiful in time
Enough bible everyday to draw you in or keep you a float. The graphics are inspiring and "thy Word is truth". Great for sharing in family devotional or home group format. Very helpful for those needing a bit of structure and wanting to see progress in their devotional time. Thankful for this team!
Just what I needed 5/5
Absolutely perfect. Accessible, and extremely well done. A necessity for my devotionals!
Great for all ages! 5/5
Even our teenager likes this Bible Study!
As a teacher, I love the way it hits visual and audial learning styles. The illustrations are amazing and the narration is done in a conversational way, almost like a friend were talking to you. I can't say enough about this app! It's great!
Amazing App 5/5
This app is amazing! It's bring the Bible app
I like this app. I like the take a breath circle at the top and the daily psalm. Nice orientation to reading scripture. The videos are great and bring up ideas I had not thought about. The video will not play in the app however. (Using it on my ipad - works fine on the iPhone). I have to go to YouTube.
The animation and cohesion of telling the story of the Bible is great. Easy to use and breaks the Bible into understandable sections.
This is one of the best apps I've ever used! I can tell that a lot of hard work and creativity went into this project. Thank you for putting this together!
I have been using this app this entire year. It's transformed my life.
The creators are Christians who hold to the historic view that the entire Bible is the Word of God. The videos are so very helpful, and have changed the way I view the entire Bible and my whole faith. They highlight the themes and the important shifts of each book, and do so in an easy-to-understand way. Their theme videos go through major themes in the entire Bible. They go from beginning to end.
The Bible Project is my favorite website right now. Each week they have been releasing a blog that goes along with the reading plan. It's eye-opening.
Won't work for me 2/5
No matter how many times or things I've tried, I can't get the videos to play in the app. I love the idea of the videos and scripture reading plan, but it would be nice if it worked.
An App with a Purpose 5/5
I decided to read the Bible all the way through starting on my spiritual birthday. I enjoy the format of this app. It's great to have the videos, a visual way to understand the Word.
What a blessing!! 5/5
As it is for many, I find it hard to be consistent in reading Scripture, even though the "payback" is wonderful in peace and knowing God. I began following "The Bible Project" several months ago, and when I visited their site recently, I saw the mention of this app and downloaded it.
How wonderful this is! The people involved in this app and that project are such a blessing to many. The artwork is just incredible, the narrations are top notch, and this app is so well organized.
I'm a programmer, and I like that my work multiplies the efforts of my users, but wow, these folks should know that their results are deeper and of eternal value!
Thank you, everyone involved in this. God's blessings on you!
Awesome app! 5/5
Through people like this. God is reaching non believers.
Thank you for your work!
Highly Recommend! 5/5
HIGHLY RECOMMEND the Read Scripture app! It takes you through the Bible, integrating short but extremely helpful Bible Project animated videos that show the Bible’s unified story by looking at its overarching themes, the way each book was written, and its historical context.
Thoughtful Engaging Reading Plan 5/5
This is a wonderful guide to reading through the text of the Bible. It makes it easy to want to ready as often as you can by keeping you engaged through examination of the text and daily prayer. The videos and organization are very well designed and thought out. Warning: you won't stop with the plan once you start.
Nothing but GOOD 5/5
I FINALLY feel like I can read the bible without getting lost or bored. I frequently glance at the posters and rewatch the videos to make sure I'm still 'getting it.' I LOVE this. SO. MUCH!
Love these guys and their work! 5/5
Thank God for Tim Mackie and Francis Chan! I've read 5 of Chan's books and listened to many of his sermons and videos and he's a solid Bible Teacher. I know Tim Mackie from The Bible Project podcasts and videos, and he's as smart as God makes them. I'm a Reformed Baptist (a la John Piper, Mark Dever, David Platt, etc.) But these guys (Chan and Mackie) really drag me out of the echo chamber with their insights. I love learning from both of these faithful yet distinct voices of the Church. God bless them both and their families and ministries.
Changed the way I read scripture 5/5
I have been a believer most of my life, so I grew up reading the Bible. But reading scripture through this app combined with the guided videos has changed everything. I am still working my way through the Old Testament but have had too many epiphanies to count. Thank you for creating this app, bringing your videos and knowledge to a platform I can use daily.
Cheers and keep up the great work!
Great app just needs a couple tweaks. 4/5
I really like this app. It's been really helpful for me to read the Bible. I travel a bunch for work so internet isn't always something I have. I'd love to have the option for offline of scripture. The video would be great too but that wouldn't be of first priority. Would also love to have a way to switch between devices and have it on the same spot.
Best App ever 5/5
I absolutely love this app. It has really helped me to start reading the Bible daily and understand concepts through the videos they create.
This is the best!! But, my videos only play for 5 seconds then the app closes😕
Incredibly helpful 5/5
This app guides the user through the Bible in a stunningly designed, intelligently narrated, and beautifully animated way. I look forward to my bible time now! Could not be happier with it.
What I like about the whole Bible Project is it's simplicity. The videos are clear and straightforward. They are simple and there is truth and beauty in simplicity. The app is clean and clear and is easy to follow. You do need an internet connection to access the videos and to use some parts of the app, so either use wifi or monitor your data usage. Download the app and start reading the Bible.
Our church is using this app as a way for everyone to read the Bible together. My husband and I really enjoy it. The videos are awesome!!
Unique App with a Unique Purpose 5/5
By I'll try anything
Having used a lot of apps and bible study resources for different purposes, I feel like this app serves a unique purpose to simply engage a reader into the story of the whole bible. Soak in the 'big picture' and see the 'whole story' come to life between the reading portions, and animated video portions.
Thankful for the intuitive ease-of-use of this app, along with the simplicity of its design. I think this will be an app that I will personally be able to use for a long time, along side other devotional apps, and bible study resources.
Thank you to all the behind the scenes people and contributors that have made this app FREE. Bless you all!
Side note: It's cool to see the faithfulness, and example of unity between 'Crazy Love' ministries, and 'The Bible Project' crew come together to do this project. It's amazing! Can't wait to see how it grows and continues to serve over the years.
Best guide 5/5
I love this guide. Excellent. Thank you.
Changed the way I read the Bible 5/5
This group did a great job presenting a lot of bible ideas into an organized app. Thanks
I have been praying for a way my wife would understand Gods word better, she struggles with reading the Bible like many other people and I know through this app she will gain a better understanding of God's word and therefore draw closer to him. Praise be to God and thank you to everyone involved in creating this app
Love it! 5/5
I've been watching your videos for a while and that's how I learned about the app. I love the reading plan, I love having those videos in key parts and sometimes I watch them again as I continue reading future days to keep track of where in the video I'm at (so I can connect with the larger picture better), I love the Psalms following each day, the encouragement to pray,... It's like a quiet time!
I have three suggestions for new features:
1) other translations. I'm liking ESV, but I'm more used to NIV. I'm sure other users will have other preferences as well.
2) my fiancée started using the app as well, but she had started reading the Bible a while ago. We played with the "start date" option and used the long tap option to mark everything up to here as done to match the dates of "read every day" with the current date. Maybe there could be another long press option for "Start here today" which would mark everything above as done and set the start date accordingly so the selected section is due today.
3) a dark theme. I like reading light on dark when the room is dark, plus it helps preserve the battery. I like the theme being used for the Psalms.
Thanks for the effort you're taking on and keep up!
Great App! 5/5
I love this app and got me on a daily plan so I can read from Gods word daily! I love it!!
