    Does anyone have any thoughts to share about "Understanding the Bible: An Independent Baptist Commentary"? $125 seems a bit pricey in light of the fact that SwordSearcher is less than half that price and comes with a bunch of commentary and book modules out of the box.

    Too much $ like you said. I have it, but don't find it that useful.

    Searching and comparing Scripture is easily done with SS and there are plenty of commentaries available. Most commentaries never seem to answer the question that I am investigating anyway.

    Thomas Constable has a good commentary set in PDF or HTML format for free here: http://www.soniclight.com/constable/notes.htm.

    There is a framework for SS to link to the commentaries here: http://forums.swordsearcher.com/res...le-expository-notes-empty-html-framework.261/. It would be easy to download the PDF files and make links to them. Incorporating the html into SS would is more difficult, but the instructions are included in the previous link.

    There is so much on the web that I wouldn't pay for any commentary.

    Interesting, thanks for the pointer and your thoughts on the UTB commentary.

    This is a VERY good exercise.

    There was an 'altercation' last Friday in our Law, Freedom and Justice group, where a caller [to the radio program] got a bit aggressive with the guest host. Overall the program contained a LOT of material about Adam, Enoch and the Covenant(s) similar to what's found on the TC Genesis Commentary page:

    Think I'm going to start populating your framework with Genesis. :cool:
