Many Christians find it difficult to regularly read the Bible. It can be quite a task to find one's way around such a large, diverse and ancient collection of writings. Some of the books in the Bible are historical, some are poetic, some are prophetic, some take the form of letters. The big question is - how does it all fit together?

The best way to find the answer is to adopt a pattern of daily Bible study and prayer. Not only does this give the reader more knowledge of the Bible, but more importantly it offers a chance to listen and hear God speaking personally to them through His strongest medium - The Word.

Explore gives you the opportunity to delve into areas of the Bible that have perhaps eluded you for years: the laws of Leviticus; the wisdom of Proverbs; the meaninglessness of Ecclesiastes; the pain and suffering of Job; the terrifying apocalyptic imagery of Revelation. Explore shows how the Old and New Testaments are linked and how God's promises of salvation for his people are fulfilled in Jesus Christ. It also challenges the reader every day to be more like Him.

“Encouraging and informative”

(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

I like these notes becasue they focus on the bible passage itself
and provide a framework for listening to what God is saying in the passage. It has been good to delve into some of the more difficult chapter in Daniel and the prophets recently to discover how God is speaking to us in these challenging times and challenges us to worship him more and follow him more closely. The Facebook Group is helpful for sharing thoughts and for questions

It is good to study the Bible systematically and Explore facilitates just that with comment by sound biblical scholars that not only challenges the mind to grapple with truth but also engages the heart to bring about change in thinking and conduct.

We have been using 'Explore' for a couple of years and find them very good. They are enjoyable, thought provoking and a good way to read and study the Bible.


“Succinct, structured and thoughtful”

(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

I have often grappled with making the most of my engagement with the Bible in the limited time I have in the mornings. Explore is very helpful in providing some structure to my reading and reflection of God’s words, with thoughtful and succinct suggestions for application and prayer. :)

“The best”

(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

In my opinion these are the best Bible reading notes out there. Almost always on the money. The notes drive you back to the text and they offer wonderful insights, alongside helping application and prayer. I use Explore and I encourage my Church family to choose Explore.


“Highly recommended”

(Review written for 'Explore - 1 year subscription')

I have been using Explore to study the Bible for several years, and my 16 year old daughter now uses it too. It is excellent for making you look carefully at the Bible text and gives a lot of helpful links and references to other passages. The app is ideal for studying the Bible on my frequent long rail journeys.
