Given its low price, SwordSearcher Software uses Free Public Domain resources for its Bible Study, with many of them from the early 1900's or one hundred year old or more -- this is true for the Commentaries and Books they have.
I've since been using TheWord(dot)net software that's free or donate and the product of one man's vision and hard work (programming) ... Costas Stergiou, living in Greece. Go to TheWord website for screenshots and book listings.
To underscore my point that this software used (old) Public Domain material, go to its FREE competitor TheWord(dot) net BIBLE SOFTWARE and you'll see most of the same resources used.
Plus he now has additional (modern) books, dictionaries and commentaries (mostly Paid Modules) that you download and install, from Christian publishers like IVP Intervarsity Press, Zondervan, Thomas Nelson and Tyndale House.
He also has Bible versions from dozens of languages and translations of his application screens in many of these languages (including Chinese and Arabic)
If I'm paying money for software, I would prefer some 20th century resources, that would shed more light on a wider range of Bible Study (not just multiple free, old translations)
So apparently, we are paying money for Sword Searcher's features and NOT current up-to-date Bible Study resources ... especially, when you consider related, important material like the Biblical Archeology and Manuscript discoveries that have been made in the 20th century
To SwordSearcher - PLEASE include ONE MODERN COMMENTARY like:
Holman Concise Bible Commentary
NIV Compact Bible Commentary by John Sailhamer
Tyndale Concise Bible Commentary
Nelson's New Illustrated Bible Commentary
MacArthur Bible Commentary
New Bible Commentary 21st Century Edition by DA Carson
Life Application Commentary by Tyndale House
I'll probably reconsider some of the more expensive software from ChristianBook com software -- Zondervan, WORDsearch, Logos, Biblesoft -- to fill in these 20th century gaps
Second, you have "commercial but affordable software", usually written by one person or a small group of people. There are actually very few Bible software packages that fall into this class that I could find, though SwordSearcher is one of them.
Third, you have freeware and shareware packages, also usually written by a small group of people. Packages in this class range from awful to very good, with the best one being eSword.
In my experience, for the average lay person wanting to engage in a deeper study of Scripture, the quality of software in the latter two classes often rivals that of the big commercial hotshots. I found out the hard way. After spending $200 on one of the big packages I found myself continuously frustrated attempting to do even the basics - searching, cross referencing, storing of my own notes, etc. I held out longer than I should have simply because I spent so much money on the dumb thing. But in the end the pain won out and I sold it to some poor soul on eBay.
But now what to do? SwordSearcher to the rescue! For the money, SwordSearch is one of the best values out there. It's strengths are its clean and efficient interface and its search options. The effectiveness and ease of Swordsearcher's various search and indexing features simply wipes the floor with any other package I've used, freeware, shareware, or commercial. Its the only product I found that allows you to search for a specific word, topic, or verse reference across all Bibles, books, commentaries, and personal study notes with one fell swoop.
Another nice feature is it's Verse List, which consolidates all the verses from a search, or from a particular book entry, into its own pane. This allows you to actually do more with the verses without losing sight of the original list or having to work around a search results popup window.
It comes with a wide range of commentaries, dictionaries, and books, some more useful than others. However, the software is KJV-only, so if you're looking to compare various translations you won't find it here. This may or may not be a negative for you. The only other real negative that I could find is the included maps and images - they are old and archaic, and seem very out of place in such an otherwise fine product. This is easily remedied, however, by visting the swordsearcher_help yahoo group and downloading some updated maps and images. These are the only two reasons it did not garner a 5-star rating from me.
Even though I am not a "KJV-only" person, I have found SwordSearcher to be such a compelling product that I use it almost exclusively for my day-to-day study and collection of my personal commentary, notes, and illustrations. I usually only hop out of SwordSearcher to eSword when I want to do a translation comparison with some modern translations.
All in all, I highly recommend SwordSearcher.
One very cool feature is that it allows you to create books from your own personal Bible studies and import them into the product turning them into your own personal study guides that can be referenced directly inside SwordSearcher. It has many other great features as well which I hope you will research at the product's website.
For those of you who study the Bible, you will find SwordSearcher to be a very useful addition to your Bible study regimen.
