"Great Bible reader for mostly public domain versions"
Works with Windows 7, not buggy, easy & intuitive interface.
BibleMax is great but only has available Bible versions I normally wouldn't use. Was hoping for NIV, NASB, RSV, or NRSV: no luck. The $3 CD option includes KJV2000.
BibleMax works great! It's the best Bible program out there that I've seen that actually WORKS with a Windows 7 64-bit computer. And it's free. Tried a different program first (BiblePro) which crashed every time. Biblemax has three main windows: the Scripture verses, a commentary pane, and a references pane, all well laid out. Fast and intuitive interface. Pleasure to use.
You can choose from several Bible versions and several commentaries. Most are public domain versions that are 100+ years old. Also numerous reference books and devotional books that I'd be unlikely to look at. There's an ad when you boot up the program mentioning you can get a CD from them with many more versions for free but $2.99 shipping. Seems reasonable to me. However I would prefer NIV, RSV, NRSV, NASB, or ESV - none available. Mostly old-time public domain translations, but they do have KJV2000 on the CD so I may get it. CD has 24 additional commentaries, 15 reference books (dictionaries, encyclopedias, etc.), and lots of devotional books. I'm still looking for a NIV version; there's got to be some brand out there that has it for a Windows 7 machine, whatever the cost. Until then this will do.
If you're OK with KJV and various other (mostly) older translations, some great Bible tools, in a snappy interface that works great, then this program is for you. As I was writing this review I think I've decided to get the additional CD so I can have the KJV2000 translation. Was hoping for a NIV but since it's not available I'll see how I like this one!
