Berean Bible homepage  

Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true
(Acts 17:11)

BerBible is simplified Bible study freeware that includes the complete ESV (English Standard Version ©2001 from Good News and Crossway Publishers), NASB (New American Standard Bible ©1995 from The Lockman Foundation), and the NKJV (New King James Version ©1982 from Thomas Nelson, Inc.) Bibles at no cost. The learning curve is all but trivial because only the most used functions are implemented:

  • lookup a specific verse (such as John 3:16)
  • find verses with one or more word (super-concordance)

Word/phrase searching is extremely fast, intuitive, and very flexible to find what you are looking for. On most computers, BerBible is running immediately after you launch it, and searching is faster than you can type.

The small, self-contained 1.9 meg ESV Starter Kit, NASB Starter Kit, and NKJV Starter Kit downloads for Windows desktop PC's include the program, the specific Bible itself, and extensive help and documentation. See the downloads page for other Bible translations, such as the KJV and a 'bundle' with the ESV, NASB, and NKJV. Versions are available for the Pocket-PC and for Palm pda's and Treo's.

  • mini-tutorial with 7 steps that is 90% of what you need to know to use basic features.
  • Beginners' tutorial oriented to less experienced users
  • 70 step tutorial of New Features for experienced users
  • Context sensitive help, F1-Help, FAQ's, hover tool-tips, e-support, and more

BerBible also works great on obsolete computers that are too slow for software oriented to Bible scholars. It doesn't assume a high resolution monitor and latest hardware. Its small download size is optimized for people with a slow, unreliable, and/or expensive Internet connection.


God is pleased when followers of the Lord Jesus Christ have a growing knowledge of His Bible, His Son, and His message of salvation and repentance for a lost and dying world. Logo
