Sword Searcher 4.8 Review by Trisha White

I found this program to be very helpful for my Bible study time. Within the program you will find 22 different commentaries, including Scofield, Family Bible Notes, and John Wesley's Notes on the Bible. There are also several Bible translations, including KJV (with or without the Strong's Concordance notes), the New American Standard, Wycliffe's Translation, and Textus Receptus. You will also find bonuses, such as Webster's 1828 Dictionary, Strong's Hebrew Dictionary, Foxe's Book of Martyrs, maps, and illustrations.

The program is customizable. You can choose which tabs you want visible and hide the rest. You can set it up so that only the Bible text shows or so that all the options are showing. Tab colors and fonts can be changed--so many ways to make it "your" program.

There is an option that allows you to post your notes and save them, making this a great resource for pastors. The Search feature is helpful for those times that you're thinking of a verse but just can't remember where to find it. It is easy to copy and paste verses into email or into other projects you may be working on, such as Sunday school materials. This program makes all those projects a breeze. I found the price of $49.95 to be very reasonable for all that is in this program.
