Xiphos - Open Source Bible Study Software


I'm still trying to play catch up on a lot of things in ministry and life. The new computer is working well thankfully.

Today I found a really cool piece of software. I make no bones about promoting e-Sword but I may have found something better than even that!

Xiphos is an open source program with a bunch of modules available. It's got an internal module manager and I'm grabbing everything I can get my paws on right now. I'm going to make it my main Bible reader for the next few weeks and see if it really does top my beloved e-Sword.

Howdy Kev, I'm always interested in Open Source stuff! How's it workin' out for ya so far? Are you runnin' it under Windows or Linux -- or both?

I've found it a bit awkward in navigating the books of the Bible. It's got great resources though...

Kinda like to see them team up with e-Sword.

If you've got problems or suggestions for how navigation works, by all means let us know. What part of the navbar is awkward?

Likelihood of us "teaming up" with e-Sword is...very low. Regrets. Rick is emphatically not interested in any such thing.

Hi Karl,

I'll go back to using it so I can give you an accurate overview of my thoughts.

Thanks for stopping by! I LOVE that people are willing to serve the Lord by making it easier for others to learn about Him.

Thanks!!!

Karl,

I know it has been a while since my last comment.

I intend on making a screencast of my experience with the software.

Thanks,
Kev
