N. T. Wright has undertaken a tremendous task: to provide guides to all the books of the New Testament and to include in them his own translation of the entire text. Each short passage is followed by a highly readable discussion, with background information, useful explanations and suggestions, and thoughts as to how the text can be relevant to our lives today. The series is suitable for group study, personal study, or daily devotions.
This CD-ROM features the WordSearch Bible software platform and includes the complete eighteen-volume commentary set. The WordSearch software also includes the NRSV Bible, allowing users to easily search and compare texts and scriptures.
Features include the ability to search, print, highlight, bookmark, save notes, create custom desktops and reading views, simultaneously read and cross reference commentaries with other texts and Bibles, and many other features. A built-in word processor and web browser are also included. This product is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, and 8, as well as Mac OS X 10.5 and newer Intel Macs only.
