Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Please share your favorite tools for Bible reading/study. I am fond of the free tools available at Fatihlife, especially the Faithlife Study Bible and Lexham Bible Dictionary. Go here to sign up for free: https://bible.faithlife.com/

I like Faithlife.  I have Logos, which is awesome.  In the past I've used eSword, which is a nice, useful, FREE, program.

I use Olive tree which has free and pay resources and it works great on mobile or desktop. 

WWW.OLIVETREE.COM

Bible Reading and Bible Study with the Olive Tree Bible App from Olive...

But as far as 100% free goes, I like Blue Letter Bible.

Accordance is confusing and not user friendly.

 

Logos may be bloated (speed got much better in the latest version) but that is not the best word to describe it. The tools in Logos are simply amazing and useful.

I have used it for years and do not find it confusing at all.  I also find it to be very user friendly.

It was the very first Bible software I used and I never got used to it. I have tried to go back and use it, nope, doesn't click.

 

Logos is the way to go. AND they have a free version.

To each his own.  I have no problem using Accordance.  In fact just yesterday I purchased the Peshitta module.  It is fantastic.

It is really all about what someone is use to.  You feel comfortable with Logos.  I feel comfortable with Accordance.  Someone else may feel different.

As the old saying goes. YMMV (your mileage may vary).

What do the posts by Jasmine and Denise have to do with the topic?  Are they "real" people, or just spambots?  Are they really two different people, or just one with MPD?  Most or all of their posts seem designed to market writing stuff.

On the topic itself -- I like e-Sword, but for the past several years, my Bible study program of choice has been "The Word."  It is free.  It has a nice feature set (and frankly, I'm still discovering ones I didn't know it had), a large selection of free modules, and a good selection of "premium" modules, most of which are priced reasonably.
