Tara-Leigh Cobble’s The Bible Recap Tops U.S. Podcast Charts at No. 1
BLOOMINGTON, MN (January 4, 2024)—On January 1, 2024, five years after its inaugural episode, The Bible Recap podcast ascended to No. 1 in All Categories on Apple Podcasts. The accompanying book, The Bible Recap: A One-Year Guide to Reading and Understanding the Entire Bible, published by Baker Publishing Group’s Bethany House division, also secured the No. 2 spot in All Books on Amazon, with The Bible Recap Study Guide ranking at No. 20.
Tara-Leigh Cobble, creator of The Bible Recap and Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The Bible Recap book line, began The Bible Recap podcast in 2019, guiding readers through a comprehensive one-year chronological Bible reading plan. “My prayer was that 300 people would listen. I never dreamed we’d be the number one podcast in All Categories,” she says. “God has blown my little heart wide open with His exceedingly more.”
Today, The Bible Recap podcast has exceeded 328 million downloads, inspiring individuals to engage in daily Scripture reading and experience a deeper faith.
Since its publication in November 2020, The Bible Recap book has sold more than 350,000 copies, and the entire product line—including the original hardcover, deluxe faux leather, real leather, personal-sized, study guide, devotional, discussion guide, and journal—has collectively sold more than 600,000 books.
Baker Publishing Group CEO Jesse Myers praised Cobble’s achievements, saying, “Tara-Leigh’s winsome, approachable, and faithful guide to reading the Bible is helping Christians all over the world to read and understand the Bible better. The Baker Publishing Group team is immensely proud to be a part of bringing The Bible Recap to the world.”
Cobble expressed her gratitude to listeners and readers, saying, “Thank you for being here, and thank you to my incredible team. And thanks most of all to God, who keeps drawing people in to read, understand, and love His Word.”
On January 30, 2024, The Bible Recap book line will add its first resource for children, The Bible Recap Kids’ Devotional: 365 Reflections and Activities for Children and Families. This book, tailored for children ages 6 and up, follows the adult Bible reading plan, making the story of Scripture accessible to the whole family.
