A helpful translation (12/19/2013)

This translation adds clarity and meaning to the text, bringing some old English up to date. I find the variation from the regular KJV to be minimal and not affecting doctrine so far. I find it very useful in my personal study and message preparation.

What an amazing resource! Every resource on e-sword is a useful tool for any person who wants to expand their biblical, theological and Christian knowledge. I first started using e-sword when it first came out and have been using it as my main program for research, and sermon and bible study preparation ever since. e-sword is the most user friendly program that I have ever used. It is a God-send for the disciple of Christ, period. The basic program is tremendous but for sometime now you can purchase resources from e-studysource that automatically load into the e-sword program upon purchase and download.

I write a lot of materials and quote from the Bible a lot too but find that the old King James version sounds way to offish to young readers or listeners and in my opinion the Good News version does not get certain messages across the way I want it. The new King James version helps me make that connection and I have found it very useful in my works so far. I use mostly the electronic version so I cannot comment on the printing but generally I find it a very useful Bible version.

NKJV FOR E-Sword is wonderful! (9/16/2013)
Reviewed by (Mary Ellen Roit, Groton, CT) - New King James Version® for e-Sword
I have been reading KJV all my life and have memorized many verses, but when newer word for word translations came out, I began searching for something more current. I went thru several translations and discovered that not only had I not found the translation I was searching for, but that I was forgetting many familiar references. That disturbed me. So I began searching for a copy of the New King James Version that would be appropriate for me. When I did find one, I began using it in my quiet time. My fear had been that it had become too modern. What a delight to discover that is still has the flow and poetry of the original KJV. So, since I use e-Sword extensively for my Bible studies, I purchased the NKJV for e-Sword and immediately included it in my parallel Bible, next to the KJV. I am delighted to find that there are few verses that have changed so much that I have to learn them all over and that it is so easy to make my notes in the editor. Very soon I will be comfortable to drop the KJV from my parallel Bible completely while still having it available for Strong's numbers in my research work. Many thanks to e-StudySource for the NKJV for e-Sword. I feel at home again as I study the Word. May God continue to bless you richly,

Reviewed by (Bob Pezold, Lady Lake, FL) - New King James Version® for e-Sword
My first experience with NKJV, and my first e-version experience for Bible study. I'm finding it a good addition to my resources, and prefer it to the KJV for obvious reasons. Using it along with NIV, NASB and The Message. I'm finding that the translation takes some liberties in adding words (not included in the original Greek) - my preference is still the NASB (for accuracy). I like the tool (e-Sword) version a lot; it really facilitates quick comparison study. I think it's an excellent value and would recommend it to friends.

I have given this 5 stars for ease of reading. I am an OLD KJV reader and have studied the old KJV. Personally I miss the Thees and Thous, but that is me. Changing from the old English into modern day, how can you tell who is being addressed? Is the pronoun singular or plural? Despite this, I will continue to read from the NKJV and use the KJV when I need to clarify.

Good for what it does (9/4/2013)
Reviewed by (Thanos Kiriakidis, Toronto, Ontario, Canada) - New King James Version® for e-Sword
My preferred Bible translation of choice is the NKJV. This version for the eSword allows me to easily do so. What I really like about it is that it allows me run the NKJV in parallel mode alongside the Greek with Strong's reference which I have enhanced by downloading for a small fee AMg's complete word study plus any other translation that my friends and colleagues use. I could only give this version four stars because it lacks a Strong's concordance of its own so I also have to run the KJV with Strong's concordance in parallel mode when doing my word studies. But for what this version does do - it does it very well. I do not find it buggy whatsoever

I like the NKJV because it does not omit words and verses like some modern translations. A lot of modern translations have the text in a paragraph form but the NKJV does not which makes finding a particular verse easier at times. But I would like to say a few words about E-Sword in general. I use E-Sword to help prepare lessons and to locate verses all the time. I find E-Sword to be one of the best tools I have when it comes to finding verses and preparing lessons. It is also easy to copy and paste verses into my lessons. I have many translations and like to compare them with each other but I find myself using the NKJV the most. An excellent translation in my opinion.

Having been in ministry for 35 years, as time has changed I have come to rely on my computer for Bible study. My computer recently crashed and I lost the programs upon which I have depended. As newer versions of the Bible have emerged, I try to keep an open mind to them, choosing my own method of comparing translations. The New King James Bible has, for me, become am indispensable tool for study. Some of the newer versions go as far as removing entire passages of scripture and relegating them to the margins to explain them away. The New King James Version is the one from which I preach and give to new candidates for ministry. I cannot be without it.

Reviewed by (Steve Scott, Herndon, VA) - New King James Version® for e-Sword
The hard copy version I'd seen had, for instance in Song of Solomon, divisions and headings which identified the supposed speaker of given verses, such as "The Shulamite," "The Beloved," etc., which made the book much easier to comprehend. I know such things may vary from publisher to publisher, but I somehow expected to find this in the e-version.
I gave this five stars because it seems to be a faithful translation, and because I use e-Sword daily, including at church, and having the different versions readily available lets me follow along no matter which version a teacher may reference.
(While the NKJV is noticeably more like the KJV, for reading aloud with my wife each morning I have found the ESV better lends itself to speaking.)

I have been privileged to own many Bibles in many versions. I must have over two dozen now! While nothing that man does is ever perfect, and while I personally feel there are a few discrepancies in it, I nevertheless have found that the New King James Bible is the most faithful to the original of all the ‘Modern’ Bibles. There are aspects of the Old King James which make it unique, but if we desire to read our Bible in a more modern setting, I would certainly recommend the New King James over any other – any errors notwithstanding.

After using many different Bible versions over the years, I now believe that the texts/manuscripts used for the KJV and NKJV are the most reliable. I appreciate the poetic majesty of the KJV but let's be real, it is harder for younger readers to understand. Even I have trouble with some of the archaic language and I'm 61. The NKJV speaks the same way I do, so it is my go-to translation. Not that it's perfect, but to me it's the best choice in the English language.
I've been using PC Study Bible for years and just began using e-Sword this year and I love it. It's faster and easier to work with. The only problem I have found with the NKJV addon is that some of the words which should be in italics are not. Two things would make it perfect: fix those missing italics and make it available with Strong's numbers. Thanks for a great product!

Some Good, Little Bad (11/16/2011)
Reviewed by (George Koll, Walla Walla, WA) - New King James Version® for e-Sword
One of the great things about the NKJV is that it preserves some of the vocabulary on which bilbe-based thology in the English-speaking world has been based such as "Tribulation," "atonement," etc. Thus one can recognize, for example, the "great tribulation" vs. something like "the great distress." One of the bad things about the NKJV is that is also retains some of the inconsistency of the KJV such as "eternal life" in John 3:15 and "everlasting life" in John 3:16 which can have people debating the difference between "eternal" and "everlasting" whereas in the Greek the phrase is identifical in each. No doubt the translators feared that any change there would be perceived by unifmored, ultra-conservatives as tampering with the word of God when, in fact, as they sometimes did according to what they considered the best English style of the time, the KJV translators actually tampered with the worrd of God at times by using two English synonyms for the same Greek word or phrase in the same context. Also, the Greek text underlying the NKJV, although I will concede that the differences between this and the best Greek text are pretty inconsequential thologically, is not the best though typically the differences between their text and the Majority Test and the Nestle/United Bible Society text are footnoted. So, the good thing is that the NKJV continues a tradition and the bad thing is that where they might have made some improvements they continued the tradition of errors. sometimes they correct the situation in one case and, apparently is something like a hymn has been based on the KJV translation, they will leave the errror. (See what the translators do with "diadem" vs. "Crown" in the portions of the Revelation where the word is unquestionablly "diadem," though, granted, not everyone is aware of what a diadem is and what it may signify, i.e., imperial or absolute power -- see Rev. 12:3' 13:1;, and 19:12 where the Greek is the same in each case though only translated correctly in the first case. It might have been better to either correct all occurrences or to simply leave it "crown" in each case. Still, it is a translation that continues much of our English theological language and this is a valuable thing.

NKJV just another of the top notch attachments for E-Sword.

Version Comparison (9/21/2011)
Reviewed by (Rex Kiser, Castroville, Texas) - New King James Version® for e-Sword
I have been aware for years of the qualitative difference in Bible versions. More specifically, I refer to the omissions that are commonly found in modern Bible versions, e.g.,missing key passages; missing names of Christ and titles of Diety. I am now teaching a Sunday school class which presents the opportunity for enabling student insight into the aforementioned reality. Of course this opportunity presents itself through the necessity to read and study Scripture. E-Sword has enabled me to place the same Bible verse from several different Bibles into columns for side by side comparison. The ability to set this up and print it out for perusal is of inestimable value as a teaching tool! Naturally, as a first step, I was in need of the best Bibles, in my view, for comparison. eStudySource has an excellent selection of electronic Bibles at reasonable cost.

e-Sword Helps Teach Cross-culturally (7/20/2011)
Reviewed by (Dennis Steinmetz, Punta Gorda, NA, Belize) - New King James Version® for e-Sword
Much of the teaching I do is cross-cultural, in fact, across 2-3 cultures simultaneously; and Bibles are in short supply, so using "eStudySource's" NKJV straight-up, or copied to power point slides; and then projected on a sheet tied up, (oftentimes) in a thatched church allows all of my students to be on the same page. Accents and vocabulary deficiencies can foment confusion, and this helps to eliminate this confusion as well. Literacy varies greatly, and this method gives my students an opportunity to practice reading skills as well. Seeing and hearing the same Word helps ensure comprehension, and increase interest. The program works on my computer without a hitch (Windows 7) and allows me to set up quickly with a minimum of equipment. I can print hand-outs complete with commentary easily, too. We can quickly go to the Hebrew or Greek using Vines Dictionary to explain or define nebulous concepts if unanticipated questions or situations arise. This helps to keep group study relevant. With the NKJV I can more easily prepare my lessons. And as long as I have my laptop I can study anywhere, knowing that my dictionary and commentaries are with me. (Quiet time in the bush is very conducive to hearing His voice.) Only the Holy Spirit is a greater help to me in my studies and my teaching.
