How to Search simplybible.com —Using SiFi our automated clerk
The studies on simplybible.com are indexed not only manually for your eyes, but also in a manner accessible by our robot clerk called SiFi. You suggest a topic and the robot tries to make a list for you.
What does SiFi do?
SiFi is simplybible.com’s own unique search program.
It includes a comprehensive index/directory to simplybible.com’s pages.
You can enter a keyword, topic, or short question.
SiFi attempts to understand your input so as to respond intelligently.
SiFi will present you with a short list of Bible lessons and a brief explanation of what each lesson is about.
SiFi might also suggest some cross reference lookups, and make helpful comments.
SiFi can handle most minor mispellings or typing mistakes.

Using Other Search Engines
SiFi does a good job most of the time, but on occasions you may wish to search all the content of simplybible.com rather than just SiFi’s databases. Below you can search with Google. Or you can go to our instructions on how to enter search terms into most search engines, with the search limited mainly to simplybible.com rather than the whole world.
