Mac - Reading Plans

Reading plans are a great way to read through Scripture with a guided set of readings each day. The Olive Tree Bible App offers many reading plan options. You can read through the whole Bible in a year, choose a plan that focuses on a specific section of the Bible, or choose a themed reading plan or devotional. This article will show you how to access and start a reading plan, how to set up a reminder and choose a preferred Bible translation, and more.

Accessing Reading Plans

Reading plans are accessed through the My Stuff section of the Study Center.
