Gain knowledge on any passage of the Bible, exactly when you need it. The Resource Guide will let you know when information in this title is relevant to anything in the main window. It will also track along with you as you read through the Bible.
Get a feel for how books of the Bible are laid out and how your commentaries will be structured. You can also access these from the Resource Guide when it's applicable to the passage you're reading, providing additional context.
Quickly find information about a book of the Bible, its author, date, audience, purpose, and other topics. If you have an introduction to the book of the Bible you're currently reading, the Resource Guide will make it easily accessible for you.
Did your resource mention a passage of Scripture, but you can't remember what the verse says? Never fear! Tap the linked verse and a pop-up window will appear, giving you quick and easy access to the verse in context.
