I’m happy to announce that SwordSearcher 7.1 is now available!
If you’re already a SwordSearcher user you can read upgrade details here.
Here’s a summary of what’s new in 7.1. A complete revision history is available here.
- The Preacher’s Complete Homiletical Commentary The massive 37-volume commentary by Joseph Exell, William Jones, George Barlow, et. al., filled with illustrative and expository sketches, outlines, and quotes.
- James Hastings’ Dictionary of the Bible With almost 6,000 entries from various authors, this work is properly considered a single-volume Biblical encyclopedia.
- Jonathan Edwards’ Notes on Scripture Notes from Edwards’ private Bible notebooks, arranged as a commentary.
New feature highlights:
- A highly flexible and intelligent Bible Reading Schedule System. SwordSearcher can help you stay in the Scriptures daily with standard and custom reading plans. The reading schedule functions of SwordSearcher prominently feature estimated reading times and use them for calculating plans. This is far more useful than dividing readings only by verses or chapters. Custom reading plans can include any segments of Scripture needed. Plans can be created based on calendar period desired, or based on how much time you want to spend reading each day.
- The new Passage Analysis Tool shows details about a selected portion or portions of the Bible. Among the interesting details provided are complete word lists and “most unique” word lists, so you can see which words appear more predominantly in any given area of the Bible compared to other areas.
- Even faster and more convenient access to library modules with new library tab drop-down selection menus.
- Several user module editor enhancements, including built-in support for pasting images directly into user notes and topics.
- Lots more.
