Dear Pastor JW. I have asked all the Bibletimes supporters the same question,
and have yet had the answers to the things that I prefer about e-Sword. It
has been a long time since I tried Bibletime, but at least then, it did not
have the features I use when I am studying scripture.
At this time, I am reading a new translation, the Good News Bible. It is
important that I can use that translation. When last I used Bibletime, it was
not available. Additionally, I use the highlight and underline features. And
a feature that is not necessary, but very desirable is the ability to increase
font size. I read from 4 to 6 hours daily and the enlarged print causes less
eye fatigue. I am in a vacuum right now. I have been without my e-Sword for
about a month. I feel spiritually vacant.
Please answer my question about GNB and mentioned features. If they are now
available in Bibletime, I will struggle no further and install Bibletime. I
also like many of the alternate offers, like historical mapping, etc. I can
live without them, but I would rather go through the trouble getting e-Sword
installed than miss those features. Thanks brother.
