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.

"Free, easy to use and has add-ons"

September 21, 2012  |  By mdshoemaker

 |  Version: The Word Bible Software 3.2

Pros

Easy to use and update. Simple process for adding unlocked books, etc. Can add personal notes. Customizable default window. Website easy to use and search.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

Previously used Logos, but they keep changing the basic software and I can no longer use the books that I purchased. A lot of money invested that I can't continue to use. Also, Logos was not a particularly user friendly app (of course they offered workshops - at a price). I found this app on CNET and am very happy with the free stuff as well as the two add-ons that I purchased for a reasonable price.

"Excellent Bible Study Software"

October 01, 2011  |  By davidgoedker

 |  Version: The Word Bible Software 3.2

Pros

Search several versions of the Bible at once and you can search in Boolean or regular. Various display options. Fairly easy to use.

Cons

Has a few less extras than e-Sword has as far as commentaries, etc.

Summary

Overall I love this version. I used to use e-Sword for many years. But was frustrated with some things and came upon theWord software. Although there was a slight learning curve to it, it is well worth the change. I think theWord is far superior to e-Sword as far as ability to search, layout options, print options, etc.

"Outstanding free Bible with Strong's Numbers"

February 10, 2011  |  By chessie1948

 |  Version: The Word Bible Software 3.2

Pros

Free. Flexible. Better than most paid versions.

Cons

None found yet. Also has NET Bible notes, which I don't recommend, but you may like and benefit from.

Summary

KJV with Dictionary, Strong's Numbers, etc.

Updated on Feb 10, 2011

Many more modules are available for download, most free, and some with a fee. Commentaries, other translations old and new, devotional books, much more than can be detailed here. Almost everything can be customized, including fonts, window layouts, colors, highlighting, bookmarks.

Updated on Jan 15, 2013

Version 4 is now available. Stability is excellent. Product remains the best Windows-based Bible software of any.

Updated on Jan 15, 2013

This exceptional software is totally free to all users. There are NONE of those gimmicks for unrelated toolbars or coupon interfaces. There are NO ads cluttering it up like other "free" Bible software. After you use it awhile, you are offered one opportunity to make a small donation, and there is no pressure to do so.

Updated on Apr 5, 2013

A version for Mac is now available. There is also a totally portable USB version called "theWord toGo".

"Hands Down the Best (Raised hands in praise!)"

January 03, 2011  |  By cycle_mycle

 |  Version: The Word Bible Software 3.2

Pros

Easy to use, very well organized, very customizable, so many resources to study with, great Bible versions, the different panes can be moved to desired locations and sizes, it can be loaded on to a USB for portability, all this makes for great study!

Cons

Not one thing, whatsoever.

Summary

With all the great modules that can be obtained for free and even some for purchase - depending on copyright - this is the most extensive and well organized Bible study software (in my humble opinion) ever. I have other expensive software that I hardly ever use any more since I have found The Word. I keep it on my computer and on USB for an all around Bible study experience that is, as far as I'm concerned, second to none. If you have only one Bible study software this should be it, why pay for any expensive software when you can have The Word. And if you just have to have copyrighted Bibles and dictionaries and such, then get them from the site.

I am so excited to have found this program; it is always running on my computer even if I only turn it on for a short time. I have had the best Bible study experience since I have been using The Word. Check it out for yourself I highly recommend it. Praise God!
