7 Bible Study Software to help you grow deeper into the Word of God.

Are you looking for some great Bible study software or programs? When it comes to studying the Bible, things have really changed. Not that long ago you would have a tower of Bibles, commentaries, dictionaries, and concordances…just to name a few.

Now you don’t have to fill up half of your library or break your back carrying these awesome books to your desk. Sayonara, chiropractic bills!

You seriously can get endless resources all on your computer and it’s a blessing. Doesn’t matter if you are using this for personal study or if you are in the ministry.

These programs are great to take your Bible study time to the next level.

The one thing you do need to be aware of is that these do cost and if you are on a tight budget you might have to pass or save up. In the next coming weeks, I will be sharing with you all some free online options.

So, keep your eyes open for that awesomeness! If you are wanting to read more Biblical topics then check out my Christain Faith section.

Bible Study Programs

computer with the Bible

Below you will find Bible Study programs and software that work for PC and with Mac. I know sometimes it’s hard to find something for the platform you use. Especially if you are using a MAC.

Here are two handy little graphics with a list of Bible Software for each platform. You can pin them to your Bible board on Pinterest for quick referencing.

Accordance

Platform: MAC, Windows, IOS, Android

I am a personal fan of Accordance. I’ve had it for the past 6-7 years. It does require a learning curve, but overall a great software. You can buy the starter bundle and from there buy different packages if you like.

“Accordance equips you with cutting-edge original language tools, interactive 3D maps, a dynamic interlinear, drag-and-drop graphical searching, and a host of other tools designed to take your Bible study to the next level. All of these tools come packaged in a clean and simple interface that can be customized to complement your Bible study objectives….”

Logos Bible Software

Platform: MAC, Windows, IOS, Android

I have heard from a lot of people who love and adore Logos. I will say Logos and Accordance are the top two most popular Bible study software out there.

“Get into the Word faster—and get more out of the time you spend there. The Courses Tool lets you choose from dozens of learning plans that guide you through Logos features and key readings on a score of topics and books. Or, start with one of our Quickstart Layouts tailored to different types of study and core Bible study tasks. Then, connect your Bible with your favorite commentary and scroll them in sync for easy reference…”

Olivetree

Platform: MAC, Windows, IOS, Android

Olivetree is an extremely popular app on smartphones, but it’s more than just Bible reading app. Olivetree is not just for your phone or tablet. You can even get it on your laptop and the base software is free! If you want to add more books you will have to purchase them.

“With the Olive Tree Bible App you can access the Olive Tree store, and build a robust reference library that will be available on all of your devices. Your entire library will always be with you wherever you go!”

QuickVerse 10 Deluxe

Platfrom: Windows (XP, Vista, 7)

Not going to lie, I’m a little surprised this guy is still around. I guess if you have an older PC this can be an option for you. 

But it is impressive with how much content they give you… 

 “252 study tools ideal for preaching, teaching and personal Bible study. QV10 has been completely rebuilt on the advanced CROSS software platform. Searching for scriptures and topical content is intelligent and lightning-fast. Enjoy unlimited parallel Bibles that sync side-by-side, plus built-in word processing that becomes searchable like any other book in your library. Instantly share with others using the Facebook and Twitter functions. This package includes 23 Bibles (including the NIV, NKJV, NLT, The Message), 35 commentaries, 11 Greek and Hebrew tools, 57 classic Christian works.”

Wordsearch Bible 

Platform: MAC, Windows, IOS, Android

Wordsearch software is made by LifeWay. That should be a good indicator that this software is going to have the goods. Wordsearch like Accordance had extra packages you can pick and add on. 

“Wordsearch 12 is our newest, most advanced desktop software for creating sermons and personal study. Wordsearch 12 is updated with new features and a 50-volume library worth over $350, in order to provide a more streamlined experience diving deeper into God’s Word.”

SwordSearcher 8.0

Platform: Windows 

SwordSearcher is in a great price range and they even give you a 30-day trial. If you are not a big fan of buying “extra” bundles and want something all-inclusive then this just might fit the bill! 

“Hundreds of volumes are just a click away. SwordSearcher’s innovative Verse Guide and Topic Guide technology make looking up information super-fast with relevant results. An entire lifetime library of books, dictionaries, and commentaries can be searched in seconds and indexed by verse reference, and it’s all included. You won’t be nickel-and-dimed just to build your library.”

BibleSoft 

Platform: MAC, Windows 

If money is not an issue and you want to go full out then Biblesoft is for you. There are three series you can choose from: Discipleship Series and Professional Series. 

Here is a little snippet about each one:

Professional Series:
