Discover Plans and keep your Bible Streak going.

We trust that your time in God’s Word during this Challenge has drawn you closer to him. And we hope each day helped you refresh or establish a daily Bible habit. The statistics from past Challenges are clear: once you build a daily habit across several weeks, that momentum can carry you forward on a streak of consistent time in the Bible.

We’ll help you get there, one week at a time, through short Daily Plans. We offer thousands of Plans, covering a wide range of topics – with more being added all the time.

The Bible App

If you’ve ever struggled to understand the Bible because you thought it was hard to read, or because you didn’t see how it applied to you, we made the Bible App for you. The Bible App helps you explore the Bible at your own pace, by yourself or (even better) with friends. Bible Plans feed you Scripture in short, daily selections, along with audio, video, or text that helps you understand what it says, reflect on what it means, and apply its truth in your own life. Browsing Plans is easy — and fun. And with thousands of Plans to explore (and more added all the time), you’ll always discover something new. Find a version of the Bible (or several) that really bring God’s Word to life for you: we offer more than 1,700 versions in over 1,200 languages. And if you’d rather listen than read, try audio Bibles.

Connect with God’s Word on your smartphone or tablet, or online at Bible.com.
