Olive Tree Summer Bible Reading PlanSummer is almost here – in the Northern Hemisphere that is. To celebrate Summer we’re offering a special Summer reading plan as this weeks free download for use within The Bible Study App.

Olive Tree’s Summer Bible Reading Plan is designed to give you an overview of the entire Bible in 14 weeks. Starting on June 1, the daily readings select passages from each book of the Bible and highlight major themes and events in the Scriptures. Additionally, each Bible book begins with an introduction to orient readers to the historical and cultural background as well as give author information and approximate dating. Each section of the Bible (i.e. Historical Books, Minor Prophets, Epistles, etc.) has a short explanation to give readers a big picture of the Bible’s organization.
