Best Study Tool
This is one of the very best tools for studying I have ever used. E-Sword is packed with features and resources to aid in research and discovery, i.e., definitions of words that have been wrongly translated and handed down through the traditions of men. The features are too numerous to mention; it is very easy to navigate and learn and I enjoy the program on both my iPad and laptop.
E-Sword has been my favorite companion for reading and the possibilities for studying and going deeper are amazing. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting the ability to read the Word, take notes, highlight text, journal and create topics of study within one software.
I have been using it for several years and am very satisfied. My favorite resource!
Best mobile bible available
I used this app on my PC for many years and loved it there as much as I love it as a mobile app. The ability to move between passages, books of the Bible, follow references, search phrases, search commentaries, access multiple versions, access commentaries, access devotionals, cross reference, I could go on and on. It's not pretty and doesn't have social networking interfaces ( at least I do t think so). It won't remind you to read your bible, it just gives you all the resources you need to be in the word and search the scriptures which is all you need to gain wisdom and understanding. It's not awesome, because only God is awesome, but it's sure is an outstanding
An Excellent Study Tool
This is a very thoughtful and well designed software suite. I like the price as well. It's a relatively easy to use, easy to navigate program. Most of the books link together providing a near seamless Bible study experience. Also, the available add-on Bible reference materials are in abundance and has a vast selection that compliments your collection. My only gripe is that when you follow a reference link to another study tool in your collection, if the tool you just navigated to references another tool, although there is a link or it appears to be a link you can't access it without having to leave where you are and go to it manually. Adding this functionality raise my rating to 5 stars.
