e-Sword – Additional Commentaries, etc.

E-Sword Macros In Microsoft Word

It’s been a while since I wrote anything about the e-Sword bible software program that I use.
There are a few macros that work from within Microsoft Word. What basically happens is this – Microsoft Word goes out and pulls data from the e-Sword program directly into Word.
Look at the first example below. You’ll find a highlighted bible passage on the Word document. Above, you’ll see the e-Sword toolbar. I’ve circled the icon to the right.
EswordWordMacro1.jpg
Now, look what happens when I press the e-Sword icon. You’ll notice that the bible passage is inserted directly into the Word document.

This is really a handly little feature. e-Sword is a totally free bible software problem that I highly recommend.

New Testament – $250 from POSB – $150 from ST

POSB – Software

POSBheader.jpgThe Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible software uses WORDsearch Software.
Here is what the manufacturer states:

  • Use WORDsearch to build a complete digital library of Outline Bible Resources.
  • Add up to 250 of the most popular reference works from other publishers, including 22 Bible translations. You’ll end up with a complete Biblical library at your fingertips.
  • Use powerful search features to search across your entire library. Conduct lightning-fast research on any Bible subject or theme—find what you’re looking for instantly.
  • Copy and Paste your research, then add your own notes using the built-in word processor.
  • Or copy and paste your research and notes into your favorite word processor, such as MSWord or WordPerfect.
  • Your sermon or Bible study is complete—it’s that simple.
    The ability to be able to cut parts of the commentary out of the software, then paste into either Word or WordPerfect is a real plus.
    I would imagine that I would be able to print everything to Adobe PDF also.

  • Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible (CD version)

    POSBcd.jpgAs mentioned several times before, the Preacher’s Outline & Sermon Bible is also available on CD.
    I can certainly see the use of having the entire bible in a software format. The great part is you can cut and paste. This makes things easier.
    From the publisher (Outline Bible Resources) the cost is $249.95 for the complete New Testament. However, Scripture Truth sells the CD for $149.95.
    I’ve had the trial version before and must say that it is nice. I believe everything is in Microsoft Word format. This would be a very handy software package to have at a good price. For $149.95 you get everything, plus what is listed below.
    The CD also includes the following:
    All 14 vols. of The POSB New Testament with Master Subject Index
    The Minister’s Personal Handbook: What the Bible Says to the Minister
    Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary on the Whole Bible
    Easton’s Illustrated Bible Dictionary
    Hitchcock’s Dictionary of Bible Names
    “Talking” Strong’s Greek & Hebrew Concordance
    Naves Topical Bible
    Torrey’s Topical Textbook
    Torrey’s Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
    Foxe’s Book of Martyrs
    Bible Reading Plan
    Bible Maps
