Free (mostly non-Catholic) Bible Study Software

  • e-Sword: A very useful Bible study tool, lots of free add-ons and modules, some for purchase. Looks like the printing options might be really handy. Check out the free graphics and extras too. Received this note from Michael Jacques:

    Also all Esword modules can be converted to function in the free bible program “The Word” [see below]. Many of these modules are now also produced for Logos.”

  • Bible Explorer: Free downloadable Bible study software for PC or Mac. Full featured, lots of freebies (such as St. Jerome’s Latin Vulgate). NAB and RSV (with apocrypha) available for purchase. (Note: That’s not the Ignatius version, not the Catholic Edition; it’s Protestant with the apocrypha added.)

Catholic Bible Study Software: Not free but oh so amazing!

Verbum Scripture Study Software and Much More!

I had written here before that I hadn’t found any desirable Bible study software for Mac that was also Catholic. That was before I bit the bullet and bought Verbum from Logos. I started out with a base package, then upgraded, and finally upgraded all the way to the Capstone package. I’ve been using Verbum for a year now and I’m still discovering things about the software itself and my marvelous library, too. Using Verbum has revolutionized the way I study Scripture and the way I study the faith. Amazing. Absolutely amazing. And, yes, I do run Capstone on my 13″ MacBook Air, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, 512GB SDD. This is the machine I use most of the time. My workhorse. My baby. ;)
