What he is looking for is Today's English Version (TEV) which is renamed in 
some countries as Good News Translation (GNT) or Good News Bible (GNB), 
however, if e-sword uses sword modules then he already has the Bible.  He 
just needs to open it with Bibletime is all.  As for features, I like the 
parallel display best and compare several versions at once back to a literal 
translation such as Darby.
