I’ve had a desire to provide more women’s titles through a Bible software program. As a user of the WORDsearch program for many years, I knew this would be a great resource through which we could begin to make available women’s books and Bible studies. I am copying the press release here for you. Please share this good news. If you are not using a Bible software program, I encourage you to consider the value of having your theological library with you wherever you go.
|New Hope Publishers Partners with WORDsearch|
(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.)—November 4, 2010—New Hope Publishers has entered into an electronic publishing partnership with the software company WORDsearch. Included in the agreement are the “Called and Accountable” series by Henry and Norman Blackaby as well as a library of books and Bible studies by Jennifer Kennedy Dean, author of the best-selling Live a Praying Life Bible study.
Another element of the agreement is a new section for women. Women’s Bible studies, leadership, women’s issues, spiritual growth, mentoring, and parenting are some of the topics that will be available. “I have been using the WORDsearch program for years, and often noticed the need for more titles that appeal to women and women’s study groups,” commented Andrea Mullins, publisher for New Hope. “I look forward to partnering with WORDsearch to provide books that meet women’s needs and can be used in women’s Bible study groups.”
“It was my wife’s involvement in a small-group Bible study that first drew me into the Bible software field, yet most of our products today are aimed at pastors,” said Randy Beck, president of WORDsearch. “I’m looking forward to doing a better job of providing products for women’s study needs through our new partnership with New Hope.”
WORDsearch has been producing software and electronic books for the Christian market since 1987. The company’s products include WORDsearch 9, a powerful professional tool for pastors; Bible Explorer 4, the easiest Bible software available; LESSONmaker 8, a tool for small-group Bible study leaders; and InstaVerse, a tool that pops up Bible text when you point to a verse reference; plus a library of more than 4,200 volumes of electronic Christian books.
