e-Sword是一款来自美国的研读圣经的软件。在同类软件中，e-Sword是我遇到的最棒的！它的优点很多，主要归纳为三点：一是功能强大，除了不同版本圣经的对照外， 还有地图浏览器，也能做笔记，用荧光笔对经文进行勾勒等许多功能(软件带有详细的插图教程，大家慢慢研究吧^O^)；二是内容极为丰富，e-Sword自带KJV版圣经，此外，通过安装插件，还能加入许多版本的圣经，其中有国际通用的ASV , BBE , CEV , ESV等，还有数十种不同语言的版本，有希腊语，汉语，希伯来语，保加利亚语，丹麦语等等，除了近百种版本的圣经外，还汇集有历代很多的解经书，圣经辞典，图解辅助和很多相关书籍，特别是能对希腊文和希伯来文版的圣经，进行以单词，章节，段落为单位的解释；三是各种版本的圣经及相关资料都以插件的形式制作，的确使我们在操作时感到更加灵活，方便，具有人性化！
注：必须先下载安装e-Sword v7.7.7 application installation，然后把其他包中的exe资料插件安放到该软件e-Sword目录下方可使用。插件无法单独使用。
e-Sword is feature rich and user friendly. This combination is what I pursued, and as such there were decisions I had to make when implementing various features. If a feature became too complicated for anyone other than a software engineer to use, then I abandoned the design in favor of keeping things simple. The $500.00 software packages might be able to do more "things", but does the average user know how to take advantage of them? No! Below you'll find a list of features that you will discover makes the study of God's Word both enjoyable and enriching.

The CD is specially developed for use with e-Sword and includes the works of John Bunyan, Beverly Caradine, William Law, F. B. Meyer, George Morrison, Andrew Murray, John Newton, J. C. Ryle, and many more! 468 titles in all!!!

J. C. Ryle Collection
"The characteristics of Bishop Ryle's method and style are obvious. He is pre-eminently and always scriptural and expository. He never starts with a theory into which he tries to fit various scriptures. He always starts with the Word and expounds it. It is exposition at its very best and highest." So wrote Dr. Martin Lloyd-Jones. This collection includes such titles as "Holiness", and "The Upper Room", as well as commentary upon the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke. This collection contains 14 volumes in all!
