CUSTOMER REVIEWSThe Living Bible® for e-Sword
A Beautiful Supplement (6/3/2018)
Reviewed by (Lana Law, Elkhart, IN) - The Living Bible® for e-Sword
I would never read The Living Bible exclusively for my Bible reading. I have found a few verses changed or missing and prefer the KJV. I do find some the LB has a poetic explanation that I find appealing. Corinthians 13:4 & 5: Love is very patient and kind, never jealous or envious, never boastful or proud, never haughty or selfish or rude. Love does not demand its own way. It is not irritable or touchy. It does not hold grudges and WILL HARDLY EVEN NOTICE when others do it wrong.
How I use the modules I have Purchased (12/15/2017)
Reviewed by (James Stoner, Tucson, AZ) - The Living Bible® for e-Sword
I have used E-sword for more than 15 years and I have purchased Bibles, Commentary, and dictionary. It is a powerful tool and resource. 99% of my modules have purchased from Estudy Source, I have been extremely happy with this company. I love the fact they save all my install codes for access when I computers have crashed or when I have upgraded my systems. I give this company 5 star ratings, and a big thank you.
Easy To Read Bible (12/15/2017)
Reviewed by (John Perry, MONTGOMERY, Texas) - The Living Bible® for e-Sword
The Living Bible is a welcome addition to the E-Sword community of electronic bible resources. It is a good way to gain an overall understanding of a scripture. The language is easy to understand and very helpful in understanding the big picture of a section of scripture which aids in explaining a scripture or telling a Bible story.
SUPPLEMENTAL READING (12/15/2017)
Reviewed by (JOANNE EGGEBRAATEN, LAKELAND, Florida) - The Living Bible® for e-Sword
I teach a Bible study and I like to use different translations for comparison. I didn't have this one in my list and one of my ladies uses this version so I wanted it as I said, for comparison. I really like my e-Bible program and adding translations etc. is very easy and inexpensive. It also saves me from having my table full of books. I just click back and forth between my document and Bible version I'm looking at. Thanks for making studying the Bible so enjoyable and affordable.
YOU CAN'T DO MUCH BETTER (12/15/2017)
Reviewed by (HERBERT TROKIS, BENONI, GAUTENG, South Africa) - The Living Bible® for e-Sword
I am a retired forensic auditor who derives enormous pleasure from researching bible topics and undertaking bible studies, both for myself, my wife and family.
Although I have an extensive library of (hardcopy) bibles, commentaries, dictionaries and a Strong's. Ever since I was first introduced to e-Sword nearly 20 years ago, it has become one of my most favored resources.
I bought The Living Bible because I was told that the version provides an excellent translation in relatively simple, easily understandable (modern-day) English, without compromising the integrity of the Word. It would be an understatement to say that I was more than satisfied. It is a truly worthy addition to my e-Sword resources and I recommend it highly.

Engaging paraphrase (7/1/2017)
Reviewed by (Richard Carpenter, Scarbororough, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom) - The Living Bible® for e-Sword
I'm not usually a fan of paraphrased versions of the Bible but I have found the TLB to be a valuable part of my library of Bible versions on E-Sword, sometimes just giving a fresh view of a passage not noticed before.
eSword and the NLT; My Thots (7/1/2017)
Reviewed by (Jay Rodriguez, Memphis, TN) - The Living Bible® for e-Sword
I like eSword. I got sucked into getting WordSearch, but after having used it, I like this one better. Could it have something to do with the fact that I got eSword 7-8 years earlier? Hmmm? Very likely. Not that I am a Bible software connoisseur or hoarder, but I think eSword is as good as it gets. At least, until a new, improved version comes out. We use the NLT at our church. Not exclusively, nor do we condemn those that would choose to struggle with the KJV. I find it much more readable than the NASB, HCSB, and the ESV. (I have these, just in case you are wondering. I prefer Proverbs in the CEV.) I had some difficulty with my order of this, but the folks at eStudySource were great about helping me correct things. Can I recommend this? Sure! Can I recommend that you purchase this? Well, to paraphrase a Nobel Laureate, I can't think for ya, you'll have to decide, whether this good translation has GOD's word inside.I am very happy with my purchase and have no regrets.
Just a great tool!!! (7/1/2017)

Thank you so much Mr. Meyer your bible software is awesome, just awesome and free at that, I like that you made The Living Bible available because I was going to another website and I would copy and paste TLB translation into my study notes, now that I have my own copy that is not necessary anymore. Once again thank you for a great product (Esword).
