Firstly, the number of words included that you can search by is massive. There are 24 choices just for the letter Q! This makes OpenBible’s Topical Bible a useful tool for both studying and preparing for sermons.
The comprehensive list is derived from the results of both Yahoo! and the ESV bible searches. This helps to ensure any topics people are interested in will be included. Also, if you search for any word then it should be added to the list (although it will be moderated to ensure the system is not abused.
You can also vote up or down any verses depending on how relevant they are to the word being searched. Alternatively you can suggest your own verses to help others out that are using the services.
Some of the verses suggested may be slightly tenuous, but often this will help to gain further understanding on any topics you may be looking into.
