Bible Society launch new app to see 'God's Word read aloud across the world'

by Heather Preston

The Scottish Bible Society has launched a new digital campaign to encourage global engagement with the bible every day.

Bible 2020 is a smart phone app that offers a daily bible reading plan to users, who are also invited to share videos of scripture being read aloud to their social media networks and the projects' online community platform.

Scripture readings have been made available in up to 2,000 languages.

The initiative seeks to strengthen believers in their faith as they commit to reading the bible every day and experience the power of speaking God's word aloud.

"Imagine a world-wide community speaking the words of the Bible together across towns, cities and continents," the website reads. "Lives will be changed!"

The organisation hopes the project will unite global communities to see spiritual change across the nations.

Bible societies from more than 85 countries are taking part in the global project and the app is available to download on Apple and android devices. 

A reading plan can also be accessed through the popular bible app YouVersion.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
