e-Sword: Free Bible Study Software
Last night on of the individuals in my church house told me about this website. Check it out!
e-Sword - the Sword of the LORD with an electronic edge
This is a wonderful Bible Study software that is free to download. Once you download the main software there are tons of add-ons that you can download. Most are free, although some have a nominal fee associated with them. This software has multiple translations, dictionairies, commentaries, extra reading (In His Steps, Fox's Book of Martyrs, etc) maps and other great stuff.
I've downloaded it on my laptop so I can start using it during my lunch breaks at work to do my Bible reading, studying and my writing.
The man who started this is Rick Meyers. There is one section on the website that goes through the history of this software and why he has determined this should be a free software (you can donate to his ministry if you'd like and feel led to since this is his full time ministry/income now).
I think the verse at the top of the main home page (Introduction page) sums it up though:
"Freely you received, freely give." (Matthew 10:8)
I highly recommend this software and I also recommend supporting this ministry if you are able and led to do so!
Thank you Craig for telling me about this!
