Three Resources for Better Bible Reading

For many of us, the new year is a great opportunity to commit to a daily Bible-reading plan. We are just one week into 2021, and it’s not too late to commit to reading scripture each day.

There are so many resources to help you as you commit to reading the Bible. Here are just a few.


The Bible App is a handy resource to have on your smart phone to help you explore scripture. There are a wide variety of plans to help you read through the entire Bible in a year, or you can find plans by topic. Some plans are just strictly scripture reading, while others include devotional materials. Once you commit to a plan, YouVersion can send you reminders via push notifications or email. Another great feature is their audio plans, where you can listen to the Bible. (Great for exercising or if you have a long commute!)


This website is one of my personal faves. I love the videos they produce that are animated overviews of books of the Bible. In 2021, I have joined their Bible reading plan, which includes a weekly email with links to passages to read, a video to watch, and thought-provoking questions. You can sign up for that plan here.

Read the Bible Newsletter

The Gospel Coalition puts together a daily scripture and devotional reading plan called Read the Bible. You can even sign up to get daily emails of the plan.

These are just a handful of the many well-produced resources to help you get into scripture each day. It is estimated that it only takes about 70 hours to read the entire Bible cover-to-cover. So, with just over an hour each week, you can read through all of scripture in 2021.

Have a scripture resource you’d like to share? Drop us an email at to tell us what you’re using this year.
