I use my Android as my primary Bible and commentary. I have several Bible apps installed on my Android device. I just downloaded the Faithlife Study Bible and it could possibly become my favorite Bible for my Kindle Fire and Android phone.
Not only does Faithlife Study Bible include 1.4 million words in study notes alone. It also includes 3 layers of study notes, the Lexham English Bible, devotionals, about 400 photos, videos, and infographics and a Lexham Bible Dictionary.
The best part of the Bible is the layout on mobile devices and tablets. They’ve made it easy to read through the Bible while seeing study notes on the bottom. Something that other Bible apps haven’t done so elegantly.
We’re big fans of the work of our friends at Logos, who are continually improving and developing their Bible software to help Christians train and study. They’ve been incredibly generous to the readers of Resurgence by offering a standing 15% discount off of their Bible software base packages for the past few years now.
We’re excited to be one of the first to let you all in on a sweet new app of theirs that you can grab for free right now: the Faithlife Study Bible, a monster 2.2-million word, fully mobile study Bible. It gives you access to a ton of notes, articles, photos, videos, infographics, and a Bible dictionary with 2,700 articles at your fingertips. It also lets you share your own notes, highlights, and even prayer requests with others, so it can be a tool for churches, book study groups, and small groups. What’s more, since the Faithlife Study Bible is digital, the content isn’t static, and the team at Logos will be continually adding new in-depth content and media in the future. Grab it today, because it won’t be free forever.

Dan Phillips explains on the Pyromanics blog why you should have a bible reading plan.
Why a plan? One is mindful of the possibly apocryphal story of the evangelist who was set upon by a critic, who announced, “Sir, I do not like your methods!” The man replied, “I am always glad to hear of a better approach. What is yours?” The critic stammered, “Why, I…I don’t have one.”
“I like mine better” was the response. And while pragmatism is a baneful worldview, there is something to be said for a touch of it once one has set on the needed goal within a God-centered worldview. Find the goal that pleases God, then figure out how to get there from here.
Ligonier has a good list of reading programs to start this year. If you never have used Professor Horner’s Bible Reading System before I highly recommend trying it this year. Reading 10 chapters a day might look like a lot to read but once you start you can see that it doesn’t really take that long.
Reading ten chapters a day, in the course of a year you’ll read the Gospels four times, the Pentateuch twice, Paul’s letters four to five times, the Old Testament wisdom literature six times, the Psalms at least twice, Proverbs and Acts a dozen times, and theOT History and Prophetic books about one and a half times.
