Fall asleep to the word of God being read over. As we sleep, we are reminded that we are dependent creatures. The Lord renews and sustains us as we learn to rest in him.

Wonderful tool for discipleship

There are so many positive things I could say about Dwell but a top three would be the following: First, Dwell is an app that has something to offer everyone. Whether you are just beginning a rhythm of regular Bible reading or are a lifelong Christian who desires a new, beautiful and accessible way to engage scripture, Dwell’s myriad reading plans, translations, devotional series, and interactive features (e.g., memorization mode, playback speed, read along, etc.) allow one to tailor the app to their individual needs. Second, Dwell is always evolving to become a better, fuller Bible reading experience. The recent update which implemented the “read along” feature changed the game. I used to need to grab my Bible, make sure it was the right translation, and then follow along that way. But now, I can listen and read along all in the app. I trust that the Dwell team will only keep revising and improving the app experience. Third, and most importantly, it is so evident that the Dwell team’s motivation for creating this app is that they love the Lord and, by way of this app, they want to enable and foster a love of Bible reading in others. The result is a wonderful tool of discipleship that is always improving and accessible to all people regardless of where they are in their journey of faith.
I love this app so much, I can’t recommend it highly enough!

Innovative, Quality App

The Narrators are very good, they don’t over-do the reading, and they are smooth, consistent, and clear. The Dwell mode (repeating a chapter, book, or playlist) is probably my favorite feature as it allows you to really focus on a particular portion of Scripture for study, contemplation, or memorization. The pre-set playlists also set this app apart, as there are selections with messianic Psalms, or with only Psalms written by David, or with a compilation of Jesus’ parables. I don’t know if any other apps that offer these features, or that execute it so well. I also enjoy the yearly reading plan options with the choice of going straight through the Bible (Genesis through Revelation), or a mixture of Old and New Testament readings, and also the option of doing a seven day a week or a five day a week plan. All in all, I rate this app five stars.

One suggestion that I have is that the developers made a reader option with all of the readers together almost like a dramatized version, but just switch to the female voice when a woman is speaking and switching between the male narrators during conversion. This would require no extra recording, only re-editing and re-arranging when certain voices are heard. This feature in other apps helps me to follow historical stories more easily and it holds my attention better than the traditional single-reader style.

Love it more than I thought I would!

I didn’t plan on purchasing a subscription when I first downloaded this because I haven’t been doing too well financially. However, I heard great things about this app and have been wanting to read the Bible but have very little time to actually sit down and read it (especially the way I want to) so I thought I’d give this a try with the intention of canceling after a week. As soon as I started in the book of Genesis, I loved it and decided this app would be a necessity to my lifestyle and a tool for my spiritual growth. So I couldn’t bring myself to cancel. I think this is well-worth the investment, especially if you’re like me and trying to get the word in whenever you can and as much as you can 💪🏼.

I also highly suggest this for anyone who’s new to the Bible (I’m new) because of how simply and beautifully structured this app is. I can tell a lot of thought has been put into this app to spread the word of just how great our God is. 💛 I’ve tried other bible reading apps (free ones) but none of them stuck with me like this one does. I really love this app and will use this as a daily staple.

Thanks, Dwell.
