PARSONS TECHNOLOGY UPGRADES QUICKVERSE



New Version Offers Color-Highlighting and Daily Bible Reading Plan

HIAWATHA, Iowa, June 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Parsons Technology today announced it is shipping an upgraded version of its popular Bible software, QuickVerse for Windows. New version 4.0 offers color- highlighting of Bible text and the ability to create a user-defined Bible reading plan. QuickVerse is designed to make Bible study more productive for anyone.

"Customer surveys and letters have confirmed that what users appreciate most about QuickVerse is how easy it is to use," reported Craig Rairdin, Vice President, Church Software Division. "Our customers want to spend their time learning more about the Bible -- not how to use software. In keeping with that, the new features we've added to version 4.0 will enhance our user's Bible study immediately."

An exclusive to QuickVerse 4.0 is support for the Rainbow Study Bible(R). The Rainbow Study Bible aids the Bible student by color coding every verse of the Bible according to one of twelve thematic headings (i.e. God, Discipleship, Love, Faith, etc.). Its unique design encourages reading and meditating upon the Word of God and provides an easy way to understand the Bible's great themes. "We wanted to make the new color highlighting in version 4.0 even more valuable to QuickVerse users," commented Rairdin. "The Rainbow Study Bible is included with every upgrade and the QuickVerse CD-ROM collections."

New features in QuickVerse 4.0 include:

-- Color highlighting of Bible verses. Users can highlight any word, verse or passage in a variety of colors.

-- Customizable Bible reading schedule. Create a plan to read through all or part of the Bible. Users can choose the books to be read or from preset plans (i.e. Bible Sequential, Major Prophets, Epistles, etc.), select duration of reading plan (from 1 day to 3 years), and days they want to read (i.e. weekdays, weekends, Mondays, etc.).

-- Find any word or phrase in any note file, including user created note files or study Bible note files (i.e. Disciple's Study Bible, Ryrie Study Bible, etc. -- sold separately).

-- Multiple "desktops" can be saved and restored instantly. Saves translations that were opened, the configuration of the open windows, the current verse and highlighted word in each window, etc.

-- Note import/export allows a user to easily add text from another document to a note file or copy information from a note file to an external document.

QuickVerse 4.0 uses unique technology which permits it to take advantage of the advanced features of Windows(R) 95 while at the same time remaining fully compatible with Windows(R) 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups A version of Windows 3.1 introduced in 1992 that added peer-to-peer networking.

Windows 95 users will appreciate long file name support, context-sensitive right mouse button and the improved Windows 95 "look" -- all the features they expect from a program designed for Windows 95.
