XV: the Bible in 15 by Matthias Media
XV helps you do two things: zoom out and see the magnificence of the 'big picture' of the Bible's story, and then zoom in to focus on the life-changing detail.
So you'll start with a zoomed-out introductory overview of the story of the Bible in 15 stages, from creation through to new creation.
This will give you a framework for the next phase of the using the app: zooming in to study the detail of God's word—understanding it better because of your new sense of how it fits into the big story.
To zoom in, we've got passages for you to read—for 15 minutes a day—focussed on particular sections of the Bible, or certain themes, with questions to help you understand the passage, things to ponder, and ideas to prompt your prayers. Each of these readings will help you get to know God better, and add to your zoomed-out overview of the Bible's story.
All of this is something you can do in short chunks each day—spend 15 minutes a day for 15 days to get an overview of the whole Bible, then 15 minutes a day to zoom in to the treasures of God's word.
It's a whirlwind tour of the big breathtaking picture of creation, the fall and the history of God's dealings with Israel, the promise of restoration, the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and what is still to come—the whole story, with all its ups and downs, and with the certainty of God's promise shining through.
