The Best Bible Study Tool, Hand’s Down
I’ve used study Bibles, commentaries, Blue Letter Bible, Bible Gateway, etc. This program brings them all together in an intuitive way that can’t be beat. The amount of free commentary available is remarkable. The parallel versions, the harmony passages, all these features make it simple to fully study a text without taking a long time. I can instantly find a passage, look up related passages, see what other commentators have said, and all within a few minutes.
I haven’t even scratched the surface of all that can be done with this program. It’s free for PC, and the programmer seems to have only charged enough to cover the Apple agreement for Mac. This speaks volumes about the man behind this project. It seems he does this for the Kingdom, not for money. While you could spend a huge amount of money on Logos, or other programs for Bible study, you don’t have to. It’s here.
Certainly the best Bible app, without doubt
I own Logos, Online Bible, Olive Tree Bible Study app and e-Sword. E-Sword is by far the best in terms of cost, access to top commentaries and resources and ease of use. Logos is absolutely the worst in terms of cost (!!!) and ease of use (!!!). Online Bible is easy to use and inexpensive but has little access to top commentaries. Olive Tree is kind of in the middle. E-Sword lets me have top commentaries and resources at about 25 percent of what Logos charges. Check it out. It requires no classes like Logos offers in order to learn it. It is pretty easy to use. I use it on my iPhone, my Windows computer and my Mac. Very happy with this product. Only change I would make would be to allow you to seamlessly flow from one commentary to another with a keyboard combo instead of using the mouse.
Good for the price
No this is not LOGOS but it also doesn’t cost like the others. Yes I wish had more of the more recent Greek texts (e.g. NA28) but I didn’t buy this software for that. I bought the software because in runs on my Windows 10, MAC, and even my iPhone (which is great during church). I like the fact that it has the ESV (free) as well as other great works by Pink and Calvin for example. So if you are looking for a good, multi-O/S, basic Bible software, eSword is an excellent choice. There are other translations for nominal fees. Keep up the good work!
