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!!
I love the app and the Bible Project! 5/5
I first found the YouTube videos of Jon and Tim narrating the Bible and then I downloaded this lovely app. I have enjoyed thoroughly everything this team has created and this app works wonderfully. It is easy to use and not complicated, just sleek and simple. And I love the content. 👍🏻👍🏻 Get this if you are interested in learning about the Bible and Jesus.
Amazing and clear! 5/5
Love the setup and videos. A great app and clear message of Gods love through his word. Thank you!!
The videos in this app for each book of the Bible are incredible. I've never seen or heard so much theology presented in such a concise and understandable format. This has become an incredibly valuable component of my devotional time. Thank you!
So helpful for studying the Bible! 5/5
Great app for working through the Bible day-by-day or at your own pace! Love it!!!
Great app! Now 4+! 5/5
By late nite
I've been reading through along with the Year of Biblical Literacy, and it's been great to have the app to read without verse numbers, track progress, and see the companion videos.
I'm happy to see this app is no longer rated 17+!
Amazing App 5/5
This is the best Bible reading app I've ever used! So helpful and engaging!
God Lives Through This App! 5/5
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.
BEST Bible Reading Plan Ever 5/5
The videos accompanying this Bible Reading Plan make all the difference. I am getting so much more out of my reading with these big picture overviews of each book of the Bible and of themes such as Covenant, Messiah, etc. This app would be perfect if the full-featured You Version Bible were incorporated as the Bible to read as that App allows me to highlight, make notes, compare translations, etc. Oh and You Version reads to me when I want to meditate on God's Word. God is using The Bible Project to reach many. I've shared it on Facebook and texted it to people so they can install it right away.
Awesome even for adults!!! 5/5
By Lemonade love
I think this is the coolest way to read the Bible it really gives you an overview before you start opening the word so you can understand it thoroughly great job guys !
Awesome Resource 5/5
By Arthur Pienaar
We have started using the website a few months ago and were excited to discover the app. It's an excellent resource to deepen your understanding of the Bible, and to enrich your experience with God's word. The high quality videos explain concepts that many might be familiar with but few understand. As missionaries in Africa, this is an amazing resource to us as we teach people to remain in the Word.
Mad lit ma dude 5/5

Inspired App! 5/5
This is the best way to start your morning! Thank you for creating such an insightful and well done way to stay connected to God!
KJV Bible 5/5
By Grady Yonas
I really like your app!! My only problem, well not really a problem, my request is to have it in KJV version. Because I believe it's the closet you can get to original copy.
But thanks for your hard work! Praise the Lord!!
By Tommy Clay
Great app! The only thing I would love to see would be audio playback so I could listen while I drive. It would be cool to have Francis reading it to us as well 😁
Spiritual Lift 5/5
It's always been hard for me to read scripture just from the Bible. I never really knew where to begin. This app has given me a beginning which is the very very beginning of the Bible. It makes it easy for me to understand how important the scripture is though. That's why I like it so much. It has me looking forward to waking up in the morning and reading each day. I am very blessed to be introduced to this app. Thanks God ⛪️💞
Highly Recommended! 5/5
For those looking to read through the Bible, to better understand how it's put together, how the various books relate to each other, to discover the overarching message woven from beginning to end - look no further. The folks at The Bible Project have created some FANTASTIC video resources, some that summarize each book of the Bible in a quasi graphic novel style while others illustrate biblical themes, and here they have integrated all of these video resources along with a one-year-through-the-Bible reading plan into a simple and elegantly designed app.
5 stars. Enjoy.
Best App Ever!! 5/5
By Reading it all
This app is so well thought out, incredibly written and has mind blowing graphics. I have thoroughly enjoyed waking up and watching this every day. Thank you for putting so much effort into making the Bible come alive. It's incredible!!!
Read Scripture 5/5
By Amelia 34
This is a Great app for learning the word and of God Especially the character that is placed on it makes it better to understand
Great way to stay on track. 5/5
If you want to commit and read the Bible, this app is the way to go. The videos are also amazing and help me understand more clearly what I just read.
My favorite app 5/5
This is the one app that I use every day. My eyes have been opened and my understanding and faith deepened. This has been a fantastic way to read the whole Bible and see how the whole story hangs together and points to Jesus. I eagerly await each video, blog and podcast. Thanks guys! Lord bless your ministry.
SO GOOD! ...just throw is a description 5/5
The app, the videos, and Chan's podcasts, are all amazing!!!
My only feedback would be to add some sort of description to the podcasts to make it easier to know which weeks aligns with which verses.
..ya know, for those of us who fall off track by a day or two! ;)
Excellent for all ages. 5/5
Great app to give to new people to help them gain a better understanding.
Bible study material for millennials 5/5
Installed it last night and already loving it. Will be using it in the Bible study soon
A great app 5/5
This is an excellent way to read the Bible in one year. They weave videos as well as scripture together. It is pretty awesome... even if parts of the Bible is still hard to read.
Helpful and Clear! 5/5
Love this app! Great for personal devotion and Bible study and reading.
This is awesome! 5/5
By John 4:29
I've never seen anything like this app. It's great, it's interactive and I love it! Thank you for making it!
Love this app! 5/5
The videos are great! They really help tie together themes throughout the Bible. I am learning a lot more than previous times I have done a whole bible reading plan.
I love this app so much. Thankyou for beautifully illustrating the background of each section of our history and masterfully allowing us to fall deep into the text that we usually think is too far-fetched and outdated to understand! I'm very excited to share this with anyone that I can
Best app ever!! 5/5
This app is awesome! It's well organized with a clean layout. It makes reading the Bible easy! What I love most is that it has the Bible Project videos built into it! These videos help me to understand what I've just read or what I'm about to read! Best app ever!!
Thankful for these two teams 5/5
So thankful for the crazy love team to partner with the Bible project. An awesome practical app to help believers read the word and actually be able to study it for themselves. We love you Francis+crazy love team, and the Bible project team! Thank you so much for creating this app. I pray the lord would use it to draw more and more followers of Christ into the word of God that transforms lives!
A New Lense 5/5
By Kainoa W.
The Bible Project has slingshotted my relationship with Christ and understanding of scripture. I have already read the entire Holy Bible before but after following their Reading Plan for only 2 months now, I've learned more in these few months about God and the history of His people than my whole life. I also have a new growing interest in scripture. It's now become the highlight of my day that I can't wait to get to(despite what book I am in). It's because The Bible Project has simplified concepts that are difficult for those in our day and age to understand. God is moving and He is using this ministry to help simple folks like me see through a new lense!
My favvy Bible App! For teens, college students, adults! 5/5
Our teen daughter and college son recommended this app. Now we are all going through the Bible in a year. There are amazing summary illustrated video clips that go along with each book. The videos are done so well--the Lord has been speaking to me in new ways, and I really have a greater sense of God's purposes through the ages. Thank you!!! Even some of my not-so-tech savvy friends are using this now, with ease. God bless this ministry-we pray for you all!
Absolutely Awesome Resource 5/5
This gives you absolutely "zero" excuses for not reading the Word regularly. This is excellently put together and very comprehensible. I love the introductions to each area, really puts what you are about to read in perspective. Really really good!!!!
Thank you! 5/5
This app is absolutely incredible. I'm a teen and at my age I never thought I could understand completely some things in the Bible but I was wrong. This innovative way to connect to God and read the Bible is amazing and I'm very sure that a lot of people will come to God through this project.
Great but... 4/5
I love this app but ever since the update, the reading will not load on my phone.
WONDERFUL app! 5/5
Thank you for creating and sharing this wonderful app. It has changed my life. Thank you...
Love it on phone not iPad 3/5
Really can't say enough about the resource...it is excellent.
The app is not working on my iPad 3. I will gladly give 5 stars if the iPad issue gets fixed.
Guys, this is incredible work. The Bible project has already been so impactful in my life and others around me, and to formulate it so we all can work through scripture and have structure; awesome. Looking forward to syncing across devices, too. Thanks again.
So legit 5/5
This makes reading the Bible so much easier
Amazing... best app to happen to me this year 5/5
Where has this app been all my life?
I can't believe I've missed out on the genius storytelling of the context and history behind each book of the Bible. Well told (both visually and verbally), extremely informative, and absolutely helpful in reading the Word and understanding the bigger picture.
The church has needed to step up its art and technology game for a while now, and this is an example of excellence being restored to the church!
So good. Thank you Crazy Love Ministries for this wonderful tool in reading the Bible.
Love it! But.. 3/5
Been using it faithfully since August, and love it! However, since the latest update, it seems to stall out a LOT on my iPad when I click on any date to read that selection. Just the bible icon with turning pages...that keep turning and turning and turning. Help please.
By Molly Dog 2005
One of my most favorite apps.
