Try this in your Bible reading:

When you come across a verse that is hard to understand, don't go straight to a commentary. I know, this may sound like a strange suggestion from someone who makes Bible Software, but just give this a try and see what happens. I am not suggesting that there is anything wrong with reading commentaries -- that's not what this is about.

Try to make a habit of cross-referencing before you do anything else in SwordSearcher. Before you read your favorite commentators or start clicking on links in the Bible margin for topical references, check out some cross-references first. If you already do this regularly then you already know how satisfying this is during Bible study. If you never really did it this way before, give it a shot using the KJV-TSK in SwordSearcher [video tutorial]. It will help you with copious cross-references. Another helpful tool is the Find Related Verses function [video tutorial], which helps you do Bible searches based on the words in a verse you are studying.


Psalm 119:18 Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.

Quickly design a reading plan in SwordSearcher

If you can carve out 15 minutes a day, you can read through the Bible in a year.

Did you know you can read through the whole Bible in one month by devoting about two and a half hours a day? That may be too ambitious, so maybe you would like to read through the New Testament in a month -- very doable with about 30 minutes a day of reading!

SwordSearcher contains a powerful daily reading plan system that you can leverage right now to begin a Bible plan, and you will know right up front how long it will take.

You can use the preset "Bible in a Year" plan to read from the Old and New Testament every day of 2017, or, design your own reading plans for any portion of the Bible, either by calendar days or daily time spent.
