Editors' Review

SwordBible offers users a no-frills digital Bible with an automated daily devotional. What this program lacks in flare, it makes up for in fantastic features.

The program is fairly complex, though not impossible to master. Its confusing icons will take some time to learn because of the cluttered interface. Another headache is that each Bible section in the menu is abbreviated, so users must know that Exod is short for Exodus and so on. Fortunately, the program's Help file is excellent and simple to manage. Once the navigational kinks are worked out, SwordBible reveals itself to be an excellent tool for studying the Bible. To start with, users choose between the King James Bible or the World English Bible. Each is simple to scroll through and contains the entire text. A Biblical verse and a devotional appear daily in a pop-up screen. Users can cycle through a calendar to preview upcoming entries or review past ones. The program is ripe with special features that help users enjoy their readings more. One neat feature allows users to compare passages from both Bible versions side by side. Another allows users to add and remove various annotations with a simple command button. In addition, users can search the entire Bible for a verse or phrase just like an online search engine.

While its interface is initially troubling, this freeware program's benefits quickly erase any problems. With great features and two easy-to-manage Bibles, this is a great download for religious readers.
