You get over 60 resources with the purchased product. This includes 18 Bibles, 10 dictionaries, 24 commentaries, 11 books, and
about 400 illustrations and maps. Unfortunately, you get very few contemporary resources with the package. Most of the available
Bibles, dictionaries, and commentaries, are the same that you get for any of the free or low-cost packages. I'm not saying these
older books are bad, they are not. Just the opposite, in fact, as they have stood the test of time. You get good commentaries,
dictionaries, cross reference books, and of course, the standard KJV. However, as in any field of study, knowledge increases over time.
We learn more about the original languages in Scripture, archaeology uncovers new finds, and new generations of scholars make their
marks on the world. It is good for this knowledge to be available in your Bible Study program, and it's something the low-cost
packages usually lack.
There are no modern Bible translations available for SwordSearcher, just the KJV and various older derivatives or translations.
A major reason for this is that the author of SwordSearcher has a strong KJV-only conviction, meaning he does not believe that
contemporary translations are necessary, or even valid. (He has his own website on the subject here: av1611.com).
Therefore he has no real incentive to bring any other Bible translations to the product.
However, there is no restriction from 3rd-parties to bring their works to SwordSearcher. Unfortunately, the bigger and more popular
translations, such as the NIV or NASB, rarely seek out small Bible software packages to make their product available. Usually the
software vendors approach the publishers. Given this scenario, don't expect to see any other Bible translations than what is
available right now.
Back when I was an full-time user of SwordSearcher I started work helping bible.org import their NET Bible into SS,
but I ran out of gas on the project, mostly because I switched software packages. There was talk a year ago of it happening again, but
apparently it didn't go anywhere.
Overall, there is nearly another 100 resources available to SwordSearcher that have been made available by the SwordSearcher
community. You can find many of them at SSModules.
