In-Depth Software for Better Bible Study
SwordSearcher Bible Software

This is one impressive program. While we don't study the Bible - or anything else - we're extremely impressed by the features, content and functionality that SwordSearcher offers. It's a great example of what good software is capable of.

SwordSearcher's main window lays out four "surfaces" for Bible study: the Bible Panel, the Book and Dictionary Panel, the Commentary Panel, and Search Results. While each panel may be hidden, they never overlap. You won't be lost in a deluge of cascading windows and finding what you need is quick and direct.

Deep Referencing links verses to every resource available: other books, other verses, topical references, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and more. No more searching for topics or dictionary headings that might be relevant to the passage you are reading - SwordSearcher puts it all a click away.

If you're studying the Bible, either as a believer or a scholar, you can't do it better than with SwordSearcher. It's powerful study features and intuitive interface make it ideal for both devotional and in-depth study.
SwordSearcher Includes:

* 18 different Bible texts, 22 commentaries, 4 guides, 9 dictionaries, and over 360 maps and illustrations, with complete indexing of each one by verse and passage. Over 300MB of useful info! (Which we don't expect you to download - you'll get the complete contents on CD-ROM.)
* Hyperlinked cross-references that can be enabled for detailed study, and disabled when not wanted.
* Easy to read Bible text, and columnar displays of different Bible versions for comparison.
* Easy access to multiple commentaries, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and topical guides. The color-coded commentary viewer tabs lets you easily switch between commentaries, quickly go straight to related material by different authors, and follow links to every resource available.
* The Topic and Verse Guide - a mega-index of the library resources available. Get complete lists of all book and commentary entries that reference any search phrase.
* Plus: Daily proverbs, Morning and Evening devotions, printing, bookmarks, user-controlled fonts & colors, ability to "hide" unused resources, user-created commentaries and books, instantaneous Bible searching, full-reference searching, and more.
