About This Show
The Commute is a Bible reading plan we created that you can do on your smartphone, while you commute. Every day it will take you through a little bit of the Old Testament, New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs, and it will even read it to you while you drive. All you have to do is set aside minutes from your daily commute. To make it even easier to get through The Bible this year, we will kick off each week with a podcast to help you better understand what you're about to read each week. Don’t let time stand in the way of reading the best-selling book of all time. You never know, it just might change your life!
