HolyBible is now at version 1.99, which has extensions to support new extra-Biblical Resources with extensive content. A free upgrade and online tutorial
can be reached at the bottom of this page.
Major features include:
Displays windows for several Bible Versions simultaneously.
Supports multiple views per Bible Version
Rich text display with headings, footnotes, and (for most English versions) prose/poetry
styles. For most modern versions such as the NIV, NRSV, REB, GNB the screen display is almost an exact match of the printed Bible!
Font face, size, aspect, colours of Bible text can be changed at any time. Text is
reformatted on the fly while the window is resized.
Due to an intelligent cacheing system, viewing several Bible Versions simultaneously is no
problem even on an early Acorn 4MB machine, such as the A5000.
Parallel tracking of Bible windows. Due to our Universal Canonicalised Numbering
system this even parallel-tracks versions with different numbering schemes correctly.
Fast, intuitive searching with keyboard mappings for foreign language versions. Word search,
phrase search and word search across multiple verses. All found verses are displayed in a window
and can be saved as a Verse List file.
User-editable Notes files containing notes for an arbitrary number of verses
Unique Resources feature:Resources are files which are tagged to Bible passages. The Resources
window always shows icons for all Resources files which apply to the currently marked verse. Resources
can be any type of file: Text, Draw, Sprite, JPEG, Replay movies etc. Like Bible texts, Resources
can be searched as well.
Intuitive drag-and-drop feature for Bible references: Bible references in the main Bible
text, in footnotes, in notes, in resources, in verse lists etc. are interpreted by the software.
Export of Bible verses and passages as plain text to any word processor or as Impression DDF
retaining all styles of the rich text format when exporting to Computer Concepts' Impression family
of word processors and to Ovation Pro.
HolyBible is a modular piece of software. So you can buy the Base Pack (KJV) (containing the King James
Version) first and then add further Bible Versions later.
