It's not random, the selection of passages and reflections is themed.

It is also useful as a basic Bible app. As well as the daily passages

A lot of work has clearly gone into it, and I think that many people
will find it useful. I'm not entirely sure, though, that it will
generate as much revenue as the investors think it will.
