The new Bible Gateway website is a complete rethinking and overhaul of BibleGateway.com, so you'll find many changes and improvements both big and small. However, a few key features stand out:
1. The same Bible Gateway you know and love. nearly everything you could do in the old site, you can do in the new site. No major features or content have been removed. On the contrary, we've added a number of new features and expanded the usefulness of some of the existing ones.
2. User accounts. You can now create a BibleGateway.com account that lets you manage your Bible Gateway profile, set your Bible reading preferences, take notes as you read (and synch those notes across multiple computers and devices), manage your devotional subscriptions, and more.
3. Personal Bible annotation. You can now take notes as you read the Bible on BibleGateway.com--your notes will be saved and synched across every device you use to access Bible Gateway. The new annotation tools also let you highlight and share passages.
4. A responsive, cross-platform experience. The new Bible Gateway works equally well across every type of device--whether you're using a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or phone.
5. An improved, easy-to-use interface. Building on years of data and feedback about how people use Bible Gateway, we've redesigned the interface to make it easier to do what you want to do on BibleGateway.com.
6. Unlockable digital study resources. Bible Gateway has always made a variety of references, dictionaries, and other study tools available for free to access alongside your Scripture reading. Those are all still available—but now, you can build up a personalized library by purchasing additional digital books to be unlocked in your Bible Gateway account.
As you explore the new website, you'll find many other small changes and improvements. Hopefully you'll find them an improvement--but we welcome your feedback regardless.
