7 Bible Study Apps To Take You Deeper In God’s Word

To help you know which Bible study apps will serve you best, we’ve compiled a list of the ones that we think are particularly helpful.

For hundreds, if not thousands of years, most people had very limited access to the Bible. Scrolls and texts were only available to priests and scholars. For most people, studying God’s word simply meant attending their local church and hearing the Bible read aloud.

Technology has absolutely revolutionized our ability to study the Bible. Not only do we have almost unlimited access to God’s word in print form, but we also have dozens if not hundreds of Bible study apps that make it incredibly easy to take in the Bible.

However, the abundance of Bible study apps also creates a unique challenge:

How can you know which ones are the best?

To help you know which Bible study apps will serve you best, we’ve compiled a list of the ones that we think are particularly helpful. Here are seven apps that will help you dive deeper into the Bible.

Love Worth Finding

The Love Worth Finding app is a rich resource for Bible study. It gives you free, unlimited access to more than 30 years of Pastor Adrian Rogers' practical and biblical teaching.

This makes it so much easier for me to listen to (Pastor) Rogers at any time of the day. I always seem to miss the radio broadcasts when they are being aired but this way, I can still hear him while I’m on the go. Excellent addition to the ministry!

Great bible app! It has the ability to read the scriptures to you while you read along which I absolutely LOVE! It has the ability to highlight and compare verses to other translations to try and understand the scriptures more fully. Also I love the function of creating verse images.

One reviewer said:

I have tried several different apps for scripture memory and this is by far the best. I have memorized over 500 verses in less than 2 years. I almost never miss a day. I LOVE the review schedule. Every morning I wake up and my verses for the day are waiting. As I master them and recall them accurately, they are scheduled for review less and less frequently. That way I can concentrate on the ones I am learning.

If you want to grow in memorizing Scripture, this app can be a tremendous resource.

Logos bible software is indicative of the name "Word" bible software. It brings in-depth accessibility, language (Hebrew, Greek) and understanding to us who are serious about studying to show ourselves approved of the word. Not knowing the original language, culture, and setting, can often bring misleading and incorrect teachings, now that's a thing of the past.

If you want to significantly broaden your understanding of the Bible, the Logos app can be an invaluable tool.

Growing With Scripture

Pastor Adrian Rogers had this to say about reading the Bible throughout his life,

“I believed it when I began, but friend I'm not finding hidden flaws, I'm finding hidden beauties.”

The Bible is a book that can never be exhausted. Why? Because when we study the Bible, we encounter God Himself. As Hebrews 4:12 puts it:

For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

It is through the study of the Bible that we come to know God. The more we dig into God’s word, the more we understand who God is and what He’s like.

Don’t wait to immerse yourself in the Bible. Download some of the Bible study apps listed above and begin exploring the beauties of Scripture.
