It is my opinion that theWord Bible Software is the most superior Bible Application there is! It can be tailored for the Beginner, in a simple form. Additionally; it can be tailored median, or; advanced. Module add on's make this the Student's Study Tool, or; The Ph.D. Head pastors Study / Teaching / Preaching Tool! To Conclude: I think it's just Wonderful! TY for it's developers - God Guided No Doubt!

What a blessing this software is. Not only that, it just blows me away that it is for free being that it is by far the best, and I mean the best Bible software out there in the market today.
You can either get the DVD, the flash drive (theWord on the go) or make your own backup copies and freely distribute them to people who actually need this software, those that don't know about it yet.
I have used every bible software program out there for years, including the famous Logos which I believe is just to overwhelming for anyone to use... and theWord is by far the best of the best.
It is just great software, ingeniously designed, powerful and fast.
I am a programmer myself however, I don't know what was used in the making of this software but it truly shows in its smooth performance and it caters to the bible student and those using it.
It has room to even get better I am sure but I am so happy with the latest version.
My hats off to theWord staff on what I feel is a beautiful creation of one of the most important tools one can have to study the bible in these last days.
BRAVO and to God all the Glory!
