So pleased with this app

I’m currently on day 110 having started this on January 1st. I’m a new Christian and this is my first experience of reading the Bible in one year, having only read isolated parts in the past. It’s a very good quality app: well designed; the bible readings by David Suchet are very easy to listen to and are read at a very measured pace; the commentaries from Nicky Gumbel really help aid my understanding and interpretation. The audio works out to be somewhere between 20-30 mins a day. I find I can read it a little faster than that, as it’s read at a steady pace (good thing). It provides the perfect accompaniment to my commute and I look forward to hearing/reading it each day.

You have to get this...

The best thing for me about this app is the audio option, listening to Nicky Gumbel reading the commentary and David Suchet reading the Bible passages - it’s also all there for you to read if you prefer. It is so inspiring and encouraging, with a common theme found for each day. I know the Bible pretty well but hearing it like this every day almost always brings out something new for me.

I simply love this!

It has been transformational to have the option go listening to scripture and teaching every day. I either listen when I exercise or sat on my sofa with a coffee and a pad. As someone who has done a lot of theology I also really appreciate the accessibility of the teaching whilst also addressing many of the really tough issues hat scripture addresses! THANK YOU! Role on 2019!
