Also, our introductions are tagged — meaning that when you’re reading a Bible in the main window, the Resource Guide can give you fast access to the appropriate introduction. Just keep your eyes open for the title under the “Introductions” section!

Next, let’s look at the summaries. The Bible Reference Companion references every verse, but lumps them together into meaningful sections. You’re going to quickly get the full picture. If you were to tap on the verse references there on the left, a pop-up window would appear with the passage in your most recently-used Bible translation.

Easy-to-Use Dictionary

Usually, Bible resources stop with what we’ve seen above. Or, you can get a dictionary separately. But the Bible Reference Companion isn’t kidding when it says it is an all-in-one tool. Check out this dictionary!

One way to find what you’re looking for in the dictionary is to search. But you can also use another part of the table of contents to drill down into the entries alphabetically.

Also, this aspect of the Companion will work in other resources as well. For instance, if you select a word in the Bible text and tap “look up,” we’ll let you know what dictionaries have entries on that word—including this one.

Helpful Images to Guide Your Learning

There are so many neat images of artwork in this resource. You can always tap on them to get a closer look if you want, too.
