This program is a convenient way to carry the Bible with you on your personal computer, and provides many handy tools to facilitate Bible study. It’s a great resource, particularly for students, ministers, and teachers.
The interface is clean, easy to use, and has options for turning parts of it off and on for uncluttered viewing. Bible Pro has many features, such as the ability to export chapters of the Bible as Word documents, PDFs, or HTML, as well as a built-in note-taking utility. It has the option to e-mail parts of the Bible, but when we tried this, we were prompted to open our e-mail program, which is problematic if the user uses Web-based e-mail. The program has an option that allows the user to listen to passages from the Bible. When we clicked on this option, the program directed us to a Web site, where the user can choose to listen to passages in either Flash or Real Audio format.
The program installs and uninstalls easily, and does not ask the user to provide any personal information. It has a drop-down Help menu. From there, the user can find help on the program’s Web site, or watch Help videos, or capture a screenshot to send to the program’s creators for help with specific issues. Bible Pro is free, but it offers expanded features such as Bible maps and book libraries for a fee. We think this is a comprehensive and robust program that users will enjoy.
WHAT’S NEW IN VERSION 14.3
Version 14.3 is a bug fixing release.
Bible Pro includes million verse links, 250,000 commentaries, 43 bible versions, more than 100 maps, and an interface with free updates for life. Bible Pro uses the same buttons, tools, look, and feel of Microsoft Word and Outlook to make it as easy as possible to learn how to use. The search finds any verse intelligently. Results are linked to commentaries, references, and translations. View a map of the places mentioned and designs of ancient buildings. As you search, read and browse references and commentaries that are displayed below the verse window for instant access. Words with ancient roots are linked to all the translations.
