ANNOUNCEMENT #1: It is with great pleasure that God has opened the door for A Faithful Version (AFV) to be inserted as a module into the bible tool, e-Sword! This popular bible program has had over 40 million downloads since its inception in 2000.

And now one can make easy copy and paste verses into their sermon notes. The e-Sword program can be downloaded here:

AFV (A Faithful Version) is to be loaded from e-Sword itself, on the option "Download" and then select "Bibles" and then select the Language "English", and the option to "Free" downloads. Tap the pointer on the Title "A Faithful Version", and the Bible will be downloaded to the PC. Close e-Sword. Re-start e-Sword to see the new additions, and the Bible will be listed in the Bible window. This is for the text only, not including footnotes, and not including the Commentary or Appendices at this stage.

New Dim Light greenish background color which may ease eye strain for some people.

Bible Search improved to locate words that include accents on the first or last character.

User-made Bible modules can now include footnotes in the text and database.

If updating an existing e-Sword installation then make sure it is not already open when you run the setup, otherwise its files cannot be updated.

To download and install e-Sword on your PC, please follow these simple steps:

Click the top button that says "e-Sword Install".
When your browser's Save dialog appears, choose "Save" to start the download.

Open/Run the file (for example by opening the folder where you saved it and double-clicking the installation file). There is no need for uninstalling older versions before updating. The installation program guides you through the rest of the process. It is recommended to use the default settings for installation.

HINT: Watch what comments occur when you download the file to your PC from the internet. If the PC security parameters wants to delete and not keep the exe file, because the filename and the source is not known, then follow the ... options, and look for details, and authorize the PC to KEEP the file, and give the PC authorization to RUN the file.

HINT: If you have alternative folders in which you save your ...\e-Sword files then run e-Sword and in Options, "Resource settings" change the path in the two windows, shown for "Bibles, Commentaries, Dictionaries, Devotions, Graphics, Reference Books", where you want e-Sword to access "Resources Location", and where you want e-Sword to access "User Files Location". Then exit e-Sword, and run it again. The relevant resources in the folders you have defined will then be accessible.

I hope you find this information useful. (Mr O.B, South Africa).
