[Investigative Bible Studies]
Thank you for taking the time to look at this software. For English speakers, I hope that you will find it useful in helping
you to communicate Christ more effectively in the Chinese Language.
Each component -- Bible, Chinese Christian Music, Dictionary, editor -- is designed
to help you to do this effectively. For native Chinese speakers, I hope that the Bible text
will aid you in your studies, the songs will aid you in your praise and the dictionary
will help you to do this bi- or tri-lingually! With the final result of you coming
closer to the Father. To order a CD, please contact us either through the internet or via mail at the address at the bottom of the page.

improving this software collection, please contact me (AiZhu @ xiaotu.com). If you have songs which
you would like to add to this collection, and they are not under copyright,
please send them to me for inclusion in this collection. I hope that in the future
we can put more and more Chinese Christian songs and literature on computer for
