environment for Bible reading, study, and research
25 reviews

Xiphos is a Bible study program for the GNOME desktop environment, based on The SWORD Project by the CrossWire Bible Society, a framework for developing Bible study tools and of associated texts such as commentaries and dictionaries.

This package provides the main Xiphos program, a digital text reader with bookmarks and full-text search. It allows viewing multiple versions of the same text, for parallel reading of alternatives or translations. It also supports personal verse-specific notes and a rich-text study pad, both of which have spell checking and full-text search.

Xiphos has a built-in facility to browse and install freely-distributed content from CrossWire repositories.

1 Have Downloaded several times of the years, and have never been even able to get it to start, via GUI or Terminal. Linux Mint Cinnamon 17.x through 18.3. Tried it on quite a few different machines.

5 Export now works - great news. Xiphos is quick and reliable and there are a huge number of modules available. Who needs more than the AV and TSK though. Thankyou.

5 A very nice Bible to be able to read from on your computer. I haven't had any problems with it, and it works well.

5 Briljant! In het Nederlands is de statenvertaling + kanttekeningen beschikbaar. Verder veel extra's zoals bijv. de verklaring van Matthew Henry.

4 Worthy alternative to BibleTime. The repository manager is actually better than the one on BibleTime.

5 It is impossible to compare Xiphos to the commercial bible software I need to run in a VirtualBox, but for the quick reference it is awesome. I'd like to see tools to convert resources from my commercial programs into sword format. I actually prefer the Xiphos experience over BibleTime - but that is, as I said elsewhere, just a matter of taste...

5 I have used this tool regularly for years. (Including the privious version 'Gnome Sword'.) It has helped me research verses, commentary, etc. for many messages for my youth group.

4 Although it lacks the search features and original language modules in commerical programs, this is the best Bible program for Linux and has plenty of basic features to help with the study of scripture.

4 Great Bible program. I only wish the "proprietary" Bibles (NIV, Message, etc.) would come out with compatible modules. Makes it hard to quote verses from when people are expecting certain popular versions.

4 The interface takes a little getting used to but it makes it easy to do so. The compact layout doesn't get in your way but it's fully functional. Lots of modules to choose from, and easy to get them! I've not even tried all the features yet and I like it.
