Looking for a feature-rich Bible program? Want a free Bible program whose price tag does not reflect its power? In the Beginning was the Word is the perfect mixture of power and cost. With a price tag of zero, The Word combines truly unparalleled feature-richness with a very reasonable cost. Neither features or cost was sacrificed. Both are perfectly combined in The Word. See below:
Your Bible Program
The Word is completely customizable. Built from the ground up to be fully international, The Word is perfect for you if you speak a language other than English. The Word layouts save and restore custom user window layouts and settings to easily pick back up that in-depth Bible study you started. The Word has many preinstalled skins to satisfy your sweet-tooth for eye candy. Fonts and their sizes are easily changed to your liking. You may completely customize how you view your Bible, including Strong’s Numbers, red letters, Greek morphology, inline dictionaries and commentaries, cross-references, Old Testament quotes, translator’s footnotes, paragraph layout, translator’s paragraphs, and the list goes on. Not to mention you can highlight/mark up your Bible any way you like and know it will be there when you need it. Customization is one of strongest and sought-after features of The Word. You will not be disappointed.
Create Your Content
Another of the strongest features of The Word is its built-in ability to create user content. Do you have commentary or dictionary notes that you want to compile? Have a wealth of cross-references you want to integrate into your electronic Bible study? The Word enables the user to easily and powerfully create commentaries (not just by verse, but by chapter, book, or verse ranges) dictionaries, regular topical books, and maps or images. The power comes through a full-featured rich text editor that can handle nearly any type of content you can throw at it. Once you create your content, you can utilize the extensive search capabilities to find anything you need. And later, if you so choose, you can prepare your module for distribution easily. In addition, you can create custom cross-references sets with marvelous ease-of-use. Many The Word users have found that they had to look no further for a way to put their work into a useful electronic form.
Your Personal Library
The Word features an ever-growing and extensive library of official modules. Modules created by users are added to this library continually. The modules are not limited to English either. For those modules that may not be freely distributed, there are resources for sale on a per-module basis. What about having a whole library in The Word? If you have too many modules, will you break it? No need to worry. The Word can successfully handle over hundreds upon hundreds of modules and still have its zippy speed. Also, you can define custom module sets to organize your vast library to be able to effectively find the title that you are looking for and to put an end to the clutter. But what good is a large library if you can’t search it effectively? Good question. The Word’s search function can be both simple and advanced. Every type of content can be searched in many different ways. Other than the typical Boolean functions, The Word can utilize regular expressions, custom search ranges, multilingual searches, etc.
In Your Pocket
Ever wanted to take your Bible program, all its settings, and your entire library with you? Yep, you guessed it again. The Word can be easily installed on a USB flash drive. Your entire library, however large it may be can be stored with The Word with all of your customsettings, cross-refs, layouts, user modules, etc. Also, even if you don’t want The Word on a USB drive, but you want the entire program run from one folder on your computer, you can do that too. How much easier could it be??
Your Ease of Study
Space fails to tell extensively about the valuable Clipboard Monitor (to display the text of any copied verse reference in Windows), The Word’s unbloated installation and very responsive use, ease-of-navigation through the Bible, extensive verse list capabilities, etc. The best way to find these things out, is to give The Word a try. We are sure you will love The Word. And, if you ever have a problem, there is an active forum in which the developer of The Word takes an active part. Give it a shot!
