Bible-Discovery is a complete Bible studying software which enables you to access 50 different translations of the Bible and includes many useful tools to help understand the texts in the original language.

Bible-Discovery is a Java based application and this download includes both the Windows EXE file and the JAR Java file to open it on Macs. However, despite this it works very quickly - there's no sluggishness - and it opens instantly.

Bible-Discovery features bookmark handling, customizable font size and color,s a biblical text importing pane, and a parallel and comparative Bible read feature. The translations - of which there are over 50 - aren't included in the download but you can download them from the developer website including an extra 10 dictionaries.

Bible-Discovery is generally easy to use - Menus are clearly laid out and there are tons of options although it is a bit buggy when switching back to the desktop as it tends to leave remnants of the Java menus on your screen. Also, it's a bit annoying having to download all the separate translations although since most users will probably only need one or two, this shouldn't be a major problem.

Bible-Discovery is an interesting and complete Bible study package.
