eSword vs. Quick Verse

At the suggested price of $799.99, Quick Verse 2007 Platinum edition, goes deep into your pockets.

While it comes with all sorts of add on books, aids, and bible translations; I can’t see dropping this much money into ANY software package. Below is what is included in the newest edition.

I have an older version, with much bells, whistles, and books. While I recommend Quick Verse to anyone wanting to spend the money, it is not my software of choice.

I’ll continue to use eSword, a free software package, that is powerful enough for me.
