About this app

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 and on Google Play.

We encourage you to experience Read Scripture in community but it is set up so that you can go through it on your own.

My go to read the Bible in one year. The latest update seems to have an issue with playing the videos. They are very small and no longer will go full screen on my device. Hopefully will be fixed soon! Thank you for such a great app and all the hard work! Update the dev team has resolved the video playback to be full screen and you can now set your start date. Thank you for the update!

The app seems good but I can't watch any videos. Whenever I click on a video it just closes out the app. Just installed this app today so it's up to date. I see others in reviews saying the videos in the app aren't working for them either. I'll likely just uninstall today bc there's no point in keeping an app that doesn't work properly.

*Edit- After the response from the developer, it is now working perfectly again. Thank you for giving me that tip on getting my progress back.* When it was working, it was great. I was through to Nehemiah when it just stopped loading, just white where the scripture list was. It was like it couldn't connect - cleared cache/data, reinstalled - and it won't work anymore. Same on different wifi and cellular. Will use the pdf to finish up. Still working on my kid's phone though, so I have no idea.

Hi Tim! We're so so sorry you are experiencing an issue with Read Scripture. If you close and reopen the app now it should be working. You will have lost your reading progress when you cleared data but you can long-press/hold down on the last day you read and select "Mark up to this date as read" to pick up where you left off. We pray this helps!
