Never a glitch, never disappointed. I wish I had more time to explore all the resources and tools available through this program. eSword is the best app I have on my phone.
Now three years into preaching ministry I can't imagine my spiritual life or planning for sermons or counseling without this wonderful tool. I love having it right with me on my iPhone at all times. There's not a day go by that I don't use it. Even the mobile app is easy to work with. I often do all of my sermon preparations from inspiration through final sermon notes all right on my phone!
The following was written two years ago:
I continue to be thrilled with eSword. It is a huge blessing to me as I study the Bible. I wrote the following a year ago, it is all still true!:
" So, a year into preaching ministry I can say that eSword has been invaluable to me. I get a thought/inspiration or wonder about a thing and within seconds I have the answer or verses I need. (Massive volumes of information right with me in my pocket!!) I especially like the ease of use of the Treasury of Scripture Knowledge. That one feature would make it worth having and using - but there are literally 100's of other resources and helps besides that. I hope I never have to go without my eSword! It is the only electronic Bible study tool/support I use, and I use it EVERY DAY! Thanks again."

I'm in seminary and I know the tools that are helpful for bible study. This app has those tools and you can have as many as you want or you can simplify and have just your bible and a dictionary. But the format of how everything is laid out is simple and easy to navigate. There is LOTS of free stuff that's actually pretty good that you can download onto your esword. If you want to upgrade to super good stuff to take your bible study to the next level you can pay for them at the esword online stores. I recommend the free commentary called "the poor mans commentary by Robert hawker. J. Vernon McGee has a commentary that's really good that you can download for about 39 bucks I think. SPEND SOME TIME LEARNING TO NAVIGATE AND USE THIS APP AND IT WILL ENHANCE YOUR UNDERSTANDING OF GODS WORD.
"Study to show yourself approved as a workman that does not need to be ashamed who rightly divides the word of truth"
PHENOMENAL Bible App!
There are quick searches of Scripture, awesome Bible references, different Bible translations which many are free. Also there are affordable Bible translations that can be rapidly downloaded. The paid Bible references and commentaries are even more excellent. As much as I love holding the actual, leather-bound Bible, something draws me to this Bible app because I love to make annotations from Scripture and sermons I listen to. The app even changes to black background and white text. This is a very useful app for being a student of Scripture and it helps me study like a Berean! I encourage you to go to e-Sword's site for other Bible related books and references that are compatible with e-Sword app. Don't forget to give your monetary support for this PHENOMENAL app! It costs to build, update and maintain. Give as well as receive.
