v1.0 – September 1, 2016

This is our initial public release of the SourceView Bible app. We're thrilled to be a part of sharing God's Word in an exciting new way. 

READ THE BIBLE IN A FRESH NEW WAY

  • Biblical text in four different colors reads dramatically like a script. 
  • Color defines source roles per book:
    • Red letters when God speaks
    • Green letters when the speaking source is a lead character
    • Blue for supporting sources
    • Narration is always black text 
  • See who is speaking by revealing source names with a simple swipe to the right.
  • Scroll through an entire book without the disruption of turning pages or stepping through chapters.
  • All books and chapters have a calculated read time so you can plan your study accordingly.
  • We’re excited to launch SourceView in the New Living Translation, a version true to the original languages and easy to read out loud or privately.
  • In groups, readers can pick a color to read aloud, like taking a part in a dramatic script.

START YOUR JOURNEY OF ENDLESS DISCOVERY

  • Learn things you never knew about the Bible by observing data points that have never been available until now. 
  • See the relative word count of books and chapters and the amount each role played in them.
  • Look closer at who speaks, the words they used, and to whom they were directed.
  • Create pie charts, bar charts, and word clouds from information you’re curious about:
    • Who speaks most in the Bible?
    • Who said the word “peace” in the Bible?
    • What professions spoke in the book of Genesis?
    • Who spoke most in a given time period?
    • What words does God say to women in the Old Testament?
  • All visual discoveries point you right back to the Scripture that corresponds to your charts.

NAVIGATE THE BIBLE LIKE NEVER BEFORE

  • Quickly jump to a passage by entering a variety of different reference searches, e.g. J3:16 (verse) or John Jesus 18 (occurrence)
  • Step backward or forward through screens you have already seen, which is great for jumping around during a sermon or Bible lesson.
  • View a history of the screens you have seen direct links to key areas in the app, and any personally bookmarked location in Scripture.

* Occurrence counts are the number of times a source spoke in a book. John Jesus 18 is the 18th time Jesus spoke in John—similar to lines of a script.

GET TO KNOW WHO SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE AND THE ROLE THEY PLAY

  • See how much a source said and step through each speaking occurrence.
  • Review who a source spoke to and who spoke to that source.
  • Jump into any conversation by stepping through what one source says to another.
  • Learn more about a source's background, like when they live, what they did for work, and what books they speak in.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of a source's personal character by focusing on the words they used.
  • Observe how a source's words connect to the seven spheres of society with SphereView unlocked.

OBSERVE HOW SCRIPTURE SHAPES A BIBLICAL CHRISTIAN WORLDVIEW*
Society is shaped by seven spheres of influence. With the SphereView in-app purchase unlocked, you'll be able to make personal observations about how scripture can be used to shape a Biblical Christian worldview.

  • Read through Scripture with various SphereView highlights turned on
  • Explore key passages for each sphere
  • Meditate on how a source's words relate to and impact society

* SphereView will be available for free for a limited preview period. In the future it will require an in-app purchase.
