Bible Software

E-Sword Bible Computer Program: recommended. Most modules are free. Zodhiates' Lexicon on NT and OT words is $40 but excellent investment if you like Word Studies (Greek and Hebrew lexicon included). Easy install. Multiple translations (both free and $). Commentaries, dictionaries, maps. Even if you have purchased Bible software, you might still want to check out this product. One of the best commentaries (conservative, literal, "futuristic") I have ever read on Revelation is available as an no charge, add-on module for E-sword. It is not on the E-sword website but can be downloaded here - Revelation - A Testimony of Jesus Christ.

Simeon, Charles - Index to Horae Homileticae - Simeon's 13,000 pages of his sermons have been categorized by subject in an alphabetized index in the following links (only a few have live links because the prodigious volume of material would necessitate 100's of man hours to link each entry). If you would like live links to every index entry, you might consider purchasing Charles Simeon's 21 Volumes of Horae Homileticae Commentary but it is expensive (the index is found in volume 21 but to derive any benefit you would need to purchase the entire set). If you are not familiar with the great saint Charles Simeon see Dr John Piper's discussion of Simeon's life - you will want to read Simeon's sermons after meeting him! - click Brothers We Must Not Mind a Little Suffering (Mp3 even better)

DOWNLOAD InstaVerse for free. It is an easy to install and simple to use Bible Verse pop up tool that allows you to read cross references in context and in the Version you prefer. Only the  KJV is free with this download but you can also download a free copy of Bible Explorer which in turn offers free Bibles that work with InstaVerse, including  the excellent, literal translation, the English Standard Version (ESV). Other popular versions are available for purchase. When you hold the mouse pointer over a Scripture reference anywhere on the Web (as well as offline in Word for Windows, email, etc) the passage pops up immediately. InstaVerse can be disabled if the popups become distractive. This utility really does work and makes it easy to read the actual passage in context and not just the chapter and verse reference.
