SwordSearcher Bible Software Deluxe
Whether you are a accomplished Bible scholar or reading the scriptures for the very first time, you'll find SwordSearcher to be a fantastic resource. For one thing it is really, really fast. I found that I could easily search for specific Bible verses, words, or phrases instantly, without even reading the tutorial or help file.
There's an absolute wealth of information at your disposal. Not only can you quickly view passages, but you can keep lists of verses, margin notes, etc.
The interface is incredible easy to use. I scanned through the menus at the top of the screen, and was totally amazed at the material contained within this program. It's obvious that the author (Brandon Staggs) has been studying, collecting, and categorizing these resources for years.
Not only is the King James Version included, but also Strong's Links, the American Standard, Darby's translation, Dutch Statenvertaling, Geneva Bible, King James 2000, Luther German, Louis Segond French version, Spanish Reina Valera,Textus Receptus, Tyndale's, World English Bible, Westcott-Hort Critical Text, Wycliffe translation, and Young's Literal Translation. You can compare versions, show book reference links.
You can reference commentary from some of the most notable sources: Wesley, Abbot, Burkitt, Clarke,Darby, Scofield, Spurgeon and others. This is a very comprehensive collection.
You can set bookmarks so that you can return easily to your favorite passages, or quickly find your place during your course of study.
And the illustrations were fascinating! SwordSearcher contains hundreds of illustrations, maps and charts. Some entries have links to the illustrations which you can view while reading them. Or you can scan through the Rightly Dividing the Word illustrations, Easton illustrations or the incredible collection of maps, which really helps you understand the the scripture within the ancient geographical boundaries.
You can also copy verses, or write your own commentaries, for sermons, Bible study classes or for your own personal use.
I personally love the daily devotionals, where you read select scripture verses for a morning and evening devotional. You could also select a particular day, and print these up for a Bible class study. You can also read the Proverb of the Day.
For a comprehensive yet easy to use Bible resource, I would highly recommend SwordSearcher to anyone who wants to attain a better understanding of the Scriptures and learn as much as possible during the time devoted to Bible study.
