    E-Sword is a great study tool. You can have several windows open at a time. The Bible and a window for commentaries and another for a dictionarym or Strongs, etc. I love the word search. It also has very many downloads for Bible translations and very many commentaries and creeds and early church documents and books. I use it often when studying foe teaching Sunday School.

    The process is the same as with books, only simpler and faster.

    1. Read the text
    2. Compare versions
    3. Do some historical research for preliminary background (maps, customs research).
    4. Look for patterns and repeated words- highlighting
    5. Make a preliminary outline of the text
    6. Develop questions
    7. Perform word studies.
    8. Examine other references – start by looking at those footnoted in text.
    9. Read up-to-date commentaries for help and direction – some very good websites are available too.

    I find myself bouncing between my bible program and MSWord.
