Victor Hernandez Senior editor

This program allows users to read, study and compare different versions of the Bible, as well as to consult various reference books written by reputable Bible scholars, all this from a single, easy-to-use and custmoizable interface.

The basic free program has a built-in version of the Scriptures, but users also can easily download different modules featuring the Bible in several languages and versions, as well as other useful texts such as dictionaries, commentaries, cross-references and more.
Most of these modules are free, although there are some pay-based, whose cost can range from $5 to up to $29.

The free version of the program has some disabled features, such as Search in all Bibles, Search Parameters and others. Also, it shows suggested shareware or pay-based modules to purchase. If you want to activate these features and get rid of the suggestions, you will need to purchase the corresponding program extension to upgrade your application.

There appears to be no new features in the new version other than, perhaps, new downloadable versions and translations. Nevertheless, the problem of the failure of copying more than one verse to the clipboard that has been pointed out in the review of the previous version has been fixed.

Pros

  • The core program is free
  • You can download and install many different versions and translations of the Bible, both free and pay-based

Cons

  • The program extension, as well as some modules, are not very affordable.

Publisher's description

Bible-Discovery software was designed for those who are not satisfied with the skimming of the Bible and they need more, who would like to understand the Bible verses and their original messages. Several tools and methods are showed them here for studying the Book simpler, easier though more effectively.

With the help of the dictionaries you can determine the additional specialized meanings of the translated words. Finding more expressive words you can get more accurate and deeper meanings. You can even determine the meanings of the proper nouns. This way the original message will become clearer from the dictionary due to the specialized meanings and the "speaking names".

Using the "Find and word analyzer" feature you can collect and organize the occurrence frequency of the words. You can spare a lot of time when you use it.

A benefit of the Cross Reference Systems is to show more verses related to the Word places that could be found by larger and/or smaller research work. To be confirmed the message of a verse in you, it is often enough to read through these Word places related to a verse.

Displaying the translations side by side, you can compare or analyze the various Bible translations and you can understand the text better.

A strength of the software is its search feature, so you can excellently use it as an advanced concordance.

The software was designed that the visually impaired users could set any font size. In addition to the size of the Bible text, any general font size can be set. Due to the particular font and colour options any colour scheme can be set.

Beside the Hebrew and the Greek words their latin transliterations can be displayed. When you refer to an Ancient Greek/Hebrew word in a discussion or preach, then you can pronounce it properly. The transliteration provides a control for those who study the language as well.

    The Bible application is free while the other resources like Commentary and Bibles somehow need paying after 7 days.

    The Word of G-d should be free, I am upset when I only have 7 days to try this application while I need it to learn the Word of G-d.
