You have heard me talk about the “Electronic Bible” called “e-Sword” in many of my teaching sessions. I wanted to bring you an encouraging letter that is posted on the “e-Sword” web site from the creator of the software as to why he provides it free of charge to anyone, and everyone!
“‘Freely you received, freely give.’ (Matthew 10:8)
Jesus told us that since we’ve been blessed we should bless others. I am happy to provide a blessing to others in the form of free Bible study software!
As a Bible student and teacher I have experienced the necessary work involved in searching the Scriptures for the competent preparation of a Bible study, Sunday school lesson, or a sermon. There are volumes of books available as study tools (and the Christian community is indebted to the various authors’ perseverance and scholarship), but there is not enough time, money, or shelf space to properly take advantage of these resources. Computer software has changed the way we can study the Word of GOD. With a simple search or click of the mouse button, we now have access to these same volumes of scholarship within seconds!
e-Sword is a fast and effective way to study the Bible. e-Sword is feature rich and user friendly with more capabilities than you would expect in a free software package. The fact that e-Sword is free is just one of the blessings and does not speak of the quality of the software. I make my living writing software and I believe I have put forth my best effort in this endeavor. The real work, however, was put in by the godly men and women who devoted countless years creating the texts that have been made available for our benefit.
In His service,
Bless you, Rick, for your service, and giving heart, to the Body of Christ! I trust that you and your family are abundantly blessed!
