I really enjoy using the Believer's Bible Commentary; however it is a little difficult to use in Analyze Verse.
Even though it is generally a verse by verse commentary, there are no links for each verse.

It seems like they would be very natural and easy to add.
Is there another reason why this isn't feasible?

Thanks

The BBC, like some other commentaries, is not written on a verse-by-verse basis, but rather in "though chunks", so you generally get commentary at the beginning of each new thought.

We've given this some thought, and were thinking that, in a future update, we could include links in the Analyze Verse screen to the next or previous block of commentary. So say the commentary covered verses 1-5 and the next block covered 6-10. You choose to view verse 3, but there's no commentary there, so you get a link to view the last commentary (verse 1) or the next (verse 6).

Would this be helpful?

That would be very helpful.

Thanks

This same issue occurs at many places in MacArthur's Study Notes - he may talk about a block of verses, and only the first verse has the note show up. Perhaps the link to the note could occur from all applicable verses?

What we were thinking was more along the lines of this: in Analyze Verse, if the verse you clicked on didn't have any attached commentary (for a given volume) you'd get the last/previous commentary links instead of "No commentary found" or whatever it says now.
