CUSTOMER REVIEWSThe Revised Standard Version for e-Sword
RSV review (2/9/2017)
Reviewed by (Anthony Strefford, Horncastle, Lincolnshire, United Kingdom) - The Revised Standard Version for e-Sword
I have had a hard copy of the RSV since March 1969 and it has served me well as a second to my KJV.
However, as I have gotten older - in my 70's - my eyesight is not as good as it was.
Having e-Sword is a blessing and having the ability to now use the RSV for my typed studies is great.
Thank you for making it available. Fully recommended!
Good Reading bible (10/19/2014)

Nice Translation, I purchased this for one reason, to compare the verses to ESV and NRSV. Personally, I appreciated good reading. I found myself that I like to check RSV again and again that will help me to understand the Scripture. With this translation, I will definitely recommend this to any one who read ESV or NRSV as nice addition to their studies. PTL
Death and comfort of the young (10/22/2013)
Reviewed by (Otto Lassen, Rushville, MO) - The Revised Standard Version for e-Sword
I love this version because some of the scripture is easer for people to understand especially when at a young child's death in a family you can quote Isaiah 57:1-2 and it gives them a lot of comfort. Thank you for all the trouble you go through to get the word into many hands.
RSV for E-Sword (6/2/2012)

RSV for E-Sword installed easily and works flawlessly. I use it to assist in writing sermons and preparing lessons. The price was quite reasonable. I have found E-Sword a valuable resource.

The RSV isnt bad, but I prefer the NKJV.
Not perfect, but my favorite. (3/2/2012)

Through the years I have found some of my favorite Christian writers quote from the RSV. I actually study several versions and while I have learned of their shortcomings, I find myself returning primarily to the RSV for two main reasons: 1) It really hits the mark on passages that are important to me, and 2) the overall flow of the wording reads well.
I originally got mine in a Harper Study Bible back in 1981, and now that I have the RSV inside of e-Sword, I'm quite happy.
Better than hoped for (1/26/2012)
Reviewed by (Gerald Kolf, Washington, District of Columbia) - The Revised Standard Version for e-Sword
I find the integration of the different units to be more helpful than I had hoped for. I find it very easy to quickly search for passages and then to annotate and cut and paste into other documents I am working on at the time.

I purchased this item to give me a greater depth of study and am very pleased with it. It has given me a new insight into phrases and verses that I was already familiar with and brought out the significance of others. Highly recommend especially with the Vincent Word studies commentary.

I was very pleased to get this version of the Bible at a reasonable price. It is easy to read and understand, and the Apocrypha is referred to when some of my studies quote from it.
