Am I Really Missing Out If I Don’t Get Verbum 7?

If you’re studying the Bible with paper books, you have no way of knowing that the insight you need for your sermon is buried on page 347, in the third book from the left, on the fifth shelf from the top of the bookcase alphabetized by authors A–G.

And, as you know, Verbum changes that. Even if you’re still on Verbum 4, 5, or 6, you’re saving a ton of time every week just from the library and searching alone.

But you may not realize how much has changed since we released Verbum 4 all the way back in 2009. There are a ton of new time-saving features that could transform your Bible study as much as the first time you took the leap to Verbum.

Here are a just few highlights of what we’ve added in the last few years. You can get them all in Verbum 7 for 20% off—but only for a few more days.


This is your one-stop shop for instant information on biblical people, places, things, events, and cultural concepts. Every time you search for something in the Factbook, Verbum generates an encyclopedia of information drawn from every book you own.

Inline Search

Chances are, one reason you use Verbum is to quickly find insights from books in your library. But what if you need to find something specific within the Bible itself? Or the theology book you’re studying?

Inline search helps you pinpoint the information you need, without leaving the book itself. And in Bibles, this is really powerful: you can search for something in English, Greek, or Hebrew without leaving your preferred translation. It transforms your reverse interlinear into a powerful search tool.


Sermon Editor

If you’re a preacher, two things are almost certainly true: you already have a sermon prep method, and you need more time to use it every week.

The Sermon Editor lets you keep your current method while saving you time. Whether you like to write a full manuscript, create an outline, or take just a few notes into the pulpit, your methodology can easily be incorporated into this word processor built for sermon prep.

Just type, and Verbum automatically creates sermon slides based on your work. Instead of hassling with multiple programs or emailing files to volunteers, you can set up the Sermon Editor to keep your volunteers in the loop automatically.

This is a truly fun and versatile tool that, as Verbum user Randy Brown said, is “a game-changer.”

Systematic Theologies

When you’re studying a passage, it’s good to get multiple viewpoints—not just different doctrinal points of view, but also insights from various disciplines. Studying a passage in light of archaeology, ancient culture, and biblical theology will help you understand a passage in new ways.

Up until now, incorporating systematic theology into your study has been very tough. Sure, Louis Berkhof or Charles Ryrie might have some helpful insights, but how often do you take a break from your study to flip through the tiny-type Scripture index at the back of their theologies? And who has time to do that with dozens of theological resources?

The Systematic Theologies section in the Passage Guide does all of that time-intensive work for you. Just launch the Passage Guide and see everywhere your systematic theologies mention the passage you’re studying. With a click, you’re reading a theological perspective on your passage from every scholar in your library. As Verbum user Bently Crawford said, “This is something that would be nearly impossible to duplicate with physical books.”
