theWord Premium Module Reviews
DDT TW Fast Facts
TheWord’s InterVarsity Press Bible Background Commentary New Testament module is a one volume New Testament commentary. While the entries are relatively brief, the subject matter will appeal to those who are studying the Bible more academically than devotionally. Pastors, teachers & serious students of the Word will probably enjoy the background material herein contained.
This download actually contains two modules: the main commentary module (which works exactly how you would expect it to) and a supplementary .gbk module that contains charts, maps, glossary, and a few other “back of the book” topics. (Please note: the .gbk module is identical to the .gbk module contained with the IVPOT version download.)
The commentary module is simple, intuitive, and easy to read. Very nicely designed, Costas!
The top screenshot shows you a picture from the main commentary module. You’ll notice
the paragraph by paragraph formatting notes in the topic book list on the left side
of the module window. Yet inside the main commentary window, you’ll be able to find
those comments verse by verse. Some parts of the Bible are listed by paragraph; but
many/most are verse by verse. Notice the size of the slider on the right side of
the window: there is a lot of material for Rom 3:19-
Now take a look at the second screenshot. There you’ll find a picture of the supplementary material contained in the secondary .gbk module. This is the kind of information you’d typically expect to find at the back of a book like a commentary: maps, charts, and glossary. (These kinds of materials don’t work well in the .cmt format, so Costas has included them in this supplemental .gbk module. Bravo, Costas!)
IVPNT for TheWord is only $25.95 -
