OpenSpritz Bible

Date: June 23, 2014

Categories: Bible reading

OpenSpritz Bible allows you to read the Bible without having to move your eyes. This allows you to read quicker. While this might not be the best way to study the Bible in-depth, it is still a good way to get a good overview and flow of a large passage or of a (short) book.

The app will accept a number of different passage formats, for example:

  • “Mark”, “mark 1-16”, “Gen”, “ez” – Will return the whole book (maybe slow depending on the book size)
  • “Mark 1:1”, “Gen 1:1”, “ps 1:1” – Will return one verse
  • “Mark 1:1-6”, “gen 1:4-15” – Will return a range of verses
  • “Mark 1:1-4:5”, “1 cor 1:1-4:13”, “rom 3-5:6” – Will return a range of verses over a chapter
  • “Mark 1-4”, “rom 1-8” – Will return a range of chapters

Currently it will not accept split passages such as “John 1:3,7-8” or “Rom 4, 9”.

Features:

  • choose from 51 English translations including: ESV, HCSB, NKJV, NIV84, NRSV etc..
  • clean interface while reading to reduce distractions
  • progress bar
  • adjust reading speed
  • adjust reading font size
