What is Virtual Scriptures

BYU Virtual Scriptures exists to educate and inspire scripture readers using compelling visual experiences that are memorable, meaningful, and uplifting.

We create interactive apps to help people experience the scriptures, immerse in deeper study, and engage in a visual way with the stories found in the scriptures.
