Bible-Discovery is a very useful application that comes in handy to those who wish to analyze the Bible's contents or compare its translations. This excellent Bible study reference tool also makes it simple for the users to find and download the digital version for various versions of the Bible, as well as religious eBooks, Bible dictionaries and many more.
Looking similar to a Bible eBook reader, this application comes with a simple and fully customizable interface that can be handled by any users. From the Settings menu you can change the Bible pane settings, the visibility of databases, and the language according to your needs.

If you ask me, the greatest feature of this program represents the ability to download and purchase Bible related eBooks and study materials directly from its interface. In addition to that, you have access to an advanced search tool that helps you find any verse you require within the Bible.

Furthermore, you can take notes, save verses as bookmarks for later on research, and compare Bible texts. The only thing I don't like about using this program is a minor one: it fails to copy to clipboard more than one verse at a time.

In my opinion, Bible-Discovery is a distinctive program as it provides its users with all the tools they need in order to effectively study and analyze the Bible.

Pros

  • Intuitive and fully customizable interface.
  • Brings you a powerful search tool.
  • You can take notes, bookmark verses, find bibles information, etc.
  • Allows you to download bibles, dictionaries, and eBooks directly from its interface.

Cons

  • Fails to copy to clipboard more than one verse.

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.
