Last Update Sep 2011: Updated links, product versions & descriptions; Removed (no longer available or website gone):  Brinkman's Bible Toolbox; Device Computing's BibleLink;DNR's Christian Bible Scholar and ThML reader; EveningDew Bible Reader; GMP Soft's Bible With You (Palm); HolyMac Software's Bible Viewer; TrendyBible; SL Software CE Bible; Removed MoNoon's Bible Reader (not updated since 2002); Removed Zondervan as they no longer publish Pradis (Zondervan Titles are available under Logos for Windows, and Accordance for Mac); Also removed CadreWorks individual listing although it is still available (see note about individual Mobile apps below).

Note 1: This list will NOT cover Bible programs developed exclusively for the iPad/iPhone, Android, or Windows Mobile platforms. There are just too many to list, and they can easily be found by searching your devices corresponding App Stores.

There are lots of great resources on the Internet for obtaining Bible Study Software. The following is a list of many of the Bible Study programs available for Microsoft Windows, Linux, MAC, and PDAs (Android, iPhone/iPad, PalmOS, PocketPC, Symbian, etc.).

The table below provides access to the web-pages of many of the software programs available. The idea is to provide the reader with a quick overview of available programs, and to provide a brief explanation of the program offerings.

Please note that any survey such as this one is only a snapshot in time. The day I post a version and a description could be the day a new update comes out. The best suggestion is to check with the author's website for latest version information.
