e-Sword Live

August 15, 2008

You may already be familiar with e-Sword, the outstanding free Bible software for Windows PC, and its smaller companion, Pocket e-Sword. I’ve just discovered a new platform where this tool resides, called e-Sword Live, an online Web 2.0 Bible study tool.

You’ll need to register to access all the features of e-Sword Live. After selecting a user ID and supplying your name and email address, you will receive a temporary password to log in to the site. Once you log in, you will want to visit your profile to select your favorite translations, commentaries, dictionaries, lexicons, and topical resources. You can even link to verses on the e-Sword Live site in blog posts. When readers follow those links, they will have access to commentaries, dictionaries, and lexicons coordinated with the linked passage — a nice advantage in comparison to other existing online Bible study sites. If you are logged in to e-Sword Live while browsing, you can switch between your selected translations, commentaries etc just like in the original e-Sword application. If you are not logged in, you will get the ESV for Bible text and the Matthew Henry Concise Commentary when you follow the link.

I think I’ll start using that tool for scripture links. Let me know what you think!

  1. Wonderful words.It is wonderful to see God working in various ways. I think it is easily for some to limit and put God’s power (words, strength, etc) in a box. I am glad that more and more Christians are starting to think and see God as He is, all powerful, mighty, mercy, graceous, love God even over various multi-medi ablilities. I think it is wonderful that we can get the Bible, God’s word, anywhere at anytime via the internet. We are much more closer for all to have heard and have the opportunity to recieve the grace that God offers. I think e-Sword, Pocket-e-Sword is great. Thank you so very much for sharing this wonderful post with us. Wonderful tool for all!
