The Best Bible Study Tool, Hand’s Down - I’ve used study Bibles, commentaries, Blue Letter Bible, Bible Gateway, etc. This program brings them all together in an intuitive way that can’t be beat. The amount of free commentary available is remarkable. The parallel versions, the harmony passages, all these features make it simple to fully study a text without taking a long time. I can instantly find a passage, look up related passages, see what other commentators have said, and all within a few minutes. I haven’t even scratched the surface of all that can be done with this program. It’s free for PC, and the programmer seems to have only charged enough to cover the Apple agreement for Mac. This speaks volumes about the man behind this project. It seems he does this for the Kingdom, not for money. While you could spend a huge amount of money on Logos, or other programs for Bible study, you don’t have to. It’s here.
Extreme Lack of Resources - Truthfully this is a great product IF you prefer the KJV ONLY! It offers a limited amount of other translations. And what I mean by limited is just that. I can down;oad additonal language translations (Chinese, German, so on), but to get NIV is an additional $19.99, or NLT is $14.99 and NET is $19.99. So if you prefer on KJV this product is for you - as for the rest of the world…find something else…unless you’re loaded and don’t care.
