About this app

Creative & Fun
Word@Hand is designed to engage you in a dialogue about the Bible and what God might be calling you to do. This isn’t some boring handbook trying to tell you what to think and do–rather you are invited to use your whole self to explore your relationship with God and God’s creation.

With Word@Hand you will find:
• Good news of God’s love for you and all of creation
• Wisdom to guide you
• Hope to sustain you
• Truth to empower you
• Forgiveness to change you
• Peace to bless you

Choose the Translation
Whether you read the Bible daily or have never read it at all, Word@Hand puts wisdom in the palm of your hand! Word@Hand gives you powerful tools for exploring the Bible. Choose from some of the most accurate and respected Bible translations in the world, like the New Revised Standard and Revised Standard Versions in both Protestant and Catholic traditions as well as Anglicized English editions. Noted for its Shakespearean elegance, the King James Version is also available in Word@Hand.

Your Bible, Only Better
Unlike printed Bibles, Word@Hand allows easy access to the most accurate versions of the Bible that you can carry anywhere you go! User-friendly bookmarks and highlights give you instant access to passages that mean the most to you and the insights you value. It’s the easiest way to carry the Bible with you at all times.

• Conveniently organized—everything is housed in your mobile library
• Quick recognition—highlights and bookmarks help you tag what’s important
• Integrated multimedia—video presentations help portray biblical settings

Wisdom & Insights Within Reach
Journey with Word@Hand to dig deeper into the words and stories of the Bible. Journeys help you go beyond simply reading the Bible. These Journeys provide comments and questions to help you determine the main idea, interpret the symbols and metaphors, identify the writers’ point of view, and analyze the characters’ actions. The more you know and understand, the more you’ll enjoy a better life with God.

Each Journey includes:
• 42 Bible readings
• Six Draw Unto Me scripture videos
• Insights to inform understanding
• Questions to spark deeper reflection
• Prayers to foster your conversations with God
• 48 illustrations to stimulate active faith

Draw Unto Me videos bring the Bible to life, illustrating the story on a whiteboard. Seeing these stories drawn helps you imagine how they might actually have happened. Each step of a Journey includes:
• A Bible reading for each step
• Thought-provoking reflections on a Bible reading with questions to prompt your thinking
• A prayer to pray as you build your relationship with God
• Concrete actions you can take right away to enrich your life with God

Available Bibles include:
• NRSV - also Catholic and Anglicized Editions
• RSV - also Catholic Edition

I got this app for the NRSVue. What I really like is the efficient search feature. I don't like how slow the app is and how it crashes sometimes. Also, when you swipe the screen left or right, it will bring you to the first chapter of the previous or next book, making you lose your place, which is super annoying. Friendship Press, please fix these problems and enable the Bible to be read without having to be connected to the internet. Thank you for your time.

The app is useless without a purchase. I got it so I could purchase (for more than any other translation!) the NRSVue to use for comparison work in sermon and Bible study prep (I'm a pastor) before the print edition becomes available. In the first 30 seconds of using, not excited or happy with the navigation.

This app is really klunky. Navigation is klunky. You cannot copy text. It is near useless for Bible study. It is easy to accidentally lose your place. It does not work off line.
