    "Good Tool, But Has Limitations"

    September 17, 2009  |   By TheDataRat


    Utterly amazing that the NASB, NKJ, and ESV come free with this program !


    Interface could use improvement for search capability (SEE: Below).


    Absolutely fantastic that the NASB, NKJ, and ESV Bible versions are included in a ~freeware~ program !
    Interface is mostly ok, yet could be more visually appealing. Main thing, however, the search delimiters (restricting searches to a specific section of the Scriptures) has been buried in the ribbon bar under "Find Options" > "Range". This extremely important feature needs to be in plain view and next to the search bar. The drop-down list of previous searches is a good thing, though.
    The application starts up far faster than e-Sword. Unlike e-Sword, with the BereanBible you don't have to pay to get the NASB, NKJ, and ESV. [ But e-Sword has several additional translations (NRSV, NLT, CSB) available for purchase, and several others
    not included in the BereanBible (e.g., TM, JSP, Vulgate) available free. ]
    Most importantly, the BereanBible has no Strong's concordance. A crucial omission for any serious Bible exegesis ! Strong's -used as a lexicon rather than a concordance- is essential for programs like this. ( Or, at least, ~some~ Greek and Hebrew lexicon sync'ed to each word in the Scriptural text. )
