Editors' review

A person could spend his or her whole life studying and trying to understand the Bible, and we feel that the same can be said of The Word Bible Software. Much like the Bible itself, The Word is complex, powerful, and full of both answers and mysteries.

The benefits of even basic Bible software are obvious; you can quickly search for key words and move easily between books, chapters, and verses. The Word lets you do that, but also much, much more. At first glance, the interface is quite overwhelming, with multiple panes, icons, and menus. Fortunately, The Word lets users choose from eight layouts, from beginner to advanced, and users can even create custom layouts of their own. This makes The Word a great choice for everyone from casual Bible readers to serious Bible scholars.

What's contained in all those panes? A navigation tree, a search box, the actual Bible text itself, notes, dictionaries, and plenty of other customizable features. The most impressive thing about The Word is that it lets people download Bibles and related resources--some free, some not--and view them with the software. There's everything from the New English Translation to the Bishops' Bible of 1568. The program comes with the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia, Mickelson's Enhanced Strong's Greek and Hebrew Dictionaries, the Treasury of Scripture Knowledge, Robin's Morphological Analysis Codes, and other Bible study resources. The Word also comes with a comprehensive built-in help file that covers all of its major features. Overall, we think The Word will require an investment of time for most people to get comfortable using, but those who are serious about Bible study will find that it more than pays off in the end.

The Word Bible Software installs a desktop icon without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We recommend this program to all users.
