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.

I am very happy that this is available on e-sword. I remember having this as a kid but for some reason it became hard to find. Ty for having this.

Version said things easier to understand on some Verses....Now I have the Living Bible as my Teachers little Helper as well and its a Blessing for me and the Guys in my Class....Thank You eStudySource....Thank You very much !!
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).
