Bible Software

Thank you for the email and I am excited about being a member. The main subject that I would like touched on deals with Bible software. I know there are many out there but what is considered the best for preachers? There is Logos, Wordsearch, E-sword, PC Bible, etc. I know Logos is the most expensive out of all but just touch on that area a little. Thanks in advance.


Ahh…That is a very good question. We will address this on the website or in the email magazine. I would first say for most purposes E-Sword would be sufficient. However for technical study of the original language I would suggest the very good BibleWorks. It is fast and good, but it is a bit expensive.

Another software package does allow the technical study of the original languages, but it is not its forte’. Logos is best seen as a software library. There are tons of resources on it. It can be helpful as well, but to find what others have said about the scripture.

Here is what I do….

  1. when I need to look up a scirpture quickly, I use http://biblegateway.com
  2. When I need to do technical study of the langauge of the Bible I use BibleWorks
  3. When I am doing my sermon I use both Logos and BibleWorks together.

If I didn’t have the budget, I would use E-Sword…and if I could only get Logos or Bible Works, I would get Logos becuase you can do all the stuff you do in Bible works, it is just a bit more clunky and slow…

God Bless and I hope to address this more substantially in the future…

    What do you get for the money paid for those Bible Programs? Are those paid programs that much better than the free ones?
