Faithlife: New Year’s solution for getting through the Bible in a year
New Christian social platform brings community, accountability to age-old New Year’s resolution with reading plans, groups, Community Notes, more
BELLINGHAM, Wash., December 28, 2012 — Preparing for 2013, the new Faithlife social network is making it easier to read through the Bible in one year, a New Year’s resolution that regularly goes uncompleted. Faithlife’s Read the Bible in a Year plan keeps everyone in a reading group on track. The free Faithlife app lets users join reading groups with their friends, their churches, their small groups or the whole Faithlife community, giving access to more shared reading plans, notes and prayer requests. The free app (available with coupon code "FREE" through March 2014) connects to the Logos ecosystem, which provides access to powerful Bible-study tools and a massive digital library of more than 31,000 resources.
“It’s a simple truth that I forget far too often — to know God, we have to know His Word,” says Jefferson Bethke, Christian blogger and spoken-word poet. “Reading the Bible in a year helps me do just that. It keeps me organized, disciplined, and reading parts of the Bible I wouldn’t otherwise choose to read on a normal basis. The Bible is a delicious feast, and reading it all the way through makes sure you aren’t leaving anything on your plate. You’ll miss some days, that’s for sure, and that’s fine — use Faithlife’s Read the Bible in a Year plan to bring you closer to your Maker and His Word.”
Faithlife is wrapped around the world’s largest, most advanced study Bible, the 2.3-million-word all-digital Faithlife Study Bible, which ties into the cutting-edge Bible-study tools and comprehensive digital Christian resources of Logos 5.
“Reading the Bible from beginning to end is an incredible opportunity to dig into the Word and identify themes that run through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation,” adds Faithlife Product Manager Joel Muddamalle. “Faithlife brings your family, friends and church members into your Bible study to share thoughts you might have missed on your own. It gives you the opportunity to dig deeper, together.”
