Trendy Bible software, Nifty Bible software
and Standing Word and art are original works solely owned by their author
and programmer Wayne McMahan, also known as McMahan and Daughters Creative
Desktop, MDCD. He first opened a christian web site domain in 1997 containing
his original clip art designs. Later he opened a1spot.com, Biblepower.com
and later Standingword.com with Nifty Bible and Trendy Bible.
My experience in graphic arts and
publishing led me to become familiar with programming and software design.
I saw a need to verify Biblical scriptures quickly and easily, so I programmed
Standing Word Bible software, renamed to Nifty Bible software. The very first
release of Standing Word Bible software was in May of 2002. It was one of
the very first free downloadable Bible software programs. Trendy Bible came
about when I saw a need to include Greek and Hebrew definitions, thus providing
a better way to understand a verse and its context. This newest Trendy Bible
version is now the new educational Eduv1 version, just released on January
1st, 2008. Below you will find listed all the materials used in these Bible

Biblical Material Used In Trendy
1769, 1881, 1901, King James Version:

The raw Bible text material used in Trendy
Bible and Nifty Bible were public domain USA. From that obtained material,
several applications were written to present the Bible text within Trendy
Bible as it appears; with gray underlined numbered paragraphs; blue words
encoded to their assigned Strong's numbered definition; and red chapter and
Some of the text material was verified
using the New Analytical Bible 1971 of the Authorized King James Version
1881, with bracketed American Standard Version 1901.
The Bible offers a wonderful library
about practically everything on human kind, both the good and bad. With Trendy
Bible Educational Software, you can go back to some of the earliest references
to bible word definitions. For example, joy has eight different
definitions, depending on where it was used.
There are many new discoveries that can
be yours in the Bible using Trendy Bible Edu v1.0. We all hope that you will
not only find these discoveries, but also Jesus Christ which the Bible was
written about and written for you.
