Broken Arrow, OK (PRWEB) May 20, 2008
StudyLamp software has announced the release of version 5.3 of SwordSearcher, its premier Bible study software for Windows XP and Vista. SwordSearcher makes study easier and faster for Christians seeking a deeper understanding of the Bible, with an efficient interface for both devotional and in-depth Bible study.
SwordSearcher makes Bible verse searches quick and simple, but also gives power users all the tools they need to do complex searching and cross-referencing. SwordSearcher's innovative Verse Guide technology allows fast access to hundreds of years' worth of commentary, topical guides, and exposition simply by typing in or clicking on a verse reference. Users can instantly access hundreds of thousands of pages of Bible helps by verse reference or topic.
New to version 5.3 is the ability to automatically link verse references in any text the user provides. When browsing the web and reading articles that reference Scripture, the user can have SwordSearcher automatically recognize verse citations, taking the tedium out of the work of checking references during study and saving time for the user.
SwordSearcher's extensive study library includes over 70 commentaries, dictionaries, encyclopedias, topical guides, Bibles, and other reference works in one package. Everything can be searched nearly instantly for any word or phrase. Advanced searching options include partial word matching, finding all word forms, fuzzy (inexact) matching, and Boolean expressions.
Bible teachers and pastors can use SwordSearcher's newly updated user-created commentary and book functions to help them build and keep records of personal Bible studies, sermons, or devotions. For version 5.3, the user content editor has been significantly improved, making Bible study planning and handout printing even easier than before.
Version 5.3 expands the SwordSearcher study library, adding the writings of C.H. Mackintosh (his Miscellaneous Writings and commentary on the Pentateuch), and A.C. Gaebelein's Annoted Bible commentary to the already extensive package of study resources.
The SwordSearcher Deluxe CD-ROM is just $49.95 and can be ordered on the Internet at http://www.swordsearcher.com. An evaluation version of the software is available at no cost from the same website.
