LifeWay Reader App Details

The LifeWay Reader is moving to! is a new, free, web-based platform created to help you read and study the Bible online wherever you go. Anywhere you have an Internet connection, visit myWSB, and you can access Bibles, commentaries, study Bibles, reference works, and more online. Once you've added a book to your library, not only is it available on, but it will sync to the WORDsearch® mobile apps. Save your work in either of these places, and you'll be able to access it no matter what device you happen to be using.

App Reviews

  • Wish I had found it sooner

    By takethisworldgivemejesus
    My college course uses LifeWay for textbooks. I wish I had known about the app sooner because the website reader is not mobile friendly at all. I didn’t discover this one until there were only about 2 weeks left in the class.
  • Works with some books but not all

    By Regicus
    For books that the reader actually downloads it works well. However... it won’t download all the books available. Gets a “request timed out” error after a few minutes.
  • Overall, disappointing

    By shifty1592
    This app is slow and laggy. It also lacks basic features like font size editor and even page search. I attend school online and some of my text books are through Lifeway online. It’s frustrating that I have a 1,500 page book and no way to jump to a specific page
  • Lifeway vs kindle

    By wmc46
    The application has many update needs. I have used kindle for many years. The Kindle application far exceeds Lifeway application. The applications should be competitive.
  • Can’t Read with This “Reader”

    By Rev from Indy
    Just bought the Fall 2018 Explore the Bible Leader Guide. Freezes every time I open it. 😖
  • Quirky at times

    By Cweeks 73
    Purchased 2 ebooks and enjoying them very much. However there are times when a page will not advance to the next one unless I exit and reopen the app. And when I open a book, it doesn’t open where I left off, it takes me back to beginning. Thankfully the bookmarks work, so that is of some help. Please update this system as I plan to purchase more books. Thanks so much and God bless.
  • It’s okay

    By DJcash17
    I downloaded the app on my iPad and also read my books online at work. I noticed that when I take notes they do not transfer over to my app. This is frustrating as now I have to go back to purchasing actually books until this app can be updated.
  • No support

    By Vapor31
    This app will work for about a week and then it will run into some issue where it won’t work and there is no support. No help button no troubleshooting nothing. I enjoyed the app when it worked. Most of the problems lie in texts that have imbedded videos. It will work until a certain point and the. It will tell you that it is preparing videos and will just lock up and freeze. It thought in the beginning it was my internet connection. I have a T1 at work and it still does it there. No thanks I will move on to something somebody actually supports. Not a very good Christian witness if you ask me. Shouldn’t do something if your not going to play full out in his name. Such a shame it would be a nice app.
  • Needs lots of work

    By Lindybear63
    writing a review is not my cup of tea, however, in this case, I hope this review will help someone else be spared the agony and frustration of buying ebooks from Lifeway. Bought an ebook on Rachel and Leah. A study book, that has places for answers to be typed, references from Bible, etc. This app will not let one type answers in. One can type, sometimes, but the answers will not stay. Sometimes links to bible verses works, and sometimes not. When links do work, the versers and references all run together, which make reading difficult . In summary, my suggestion would be to find the ebook at amazon or some other ebook store. If only place to buy is Lifeway, then buy the print book. This will be the only ebook purchased by me at Lifeway. Hope this helps others to not have the same frustration I had!
  • Eh

    By Nicandrob
    It works great, but the videos have issues. The whole thing stops and says preparing videos. Waited for hours and nothing worked. I figured out it works, but I have to delete the app and reinstall it again. I love the highlighting features and how I can read my school books on my iPad, phone, or laptop wherever I am with WiFi of course. Just wish I didn’t have to reinstall the app every time I use it.
