Fast and efficient, this one has worked very well for me. It takes a wee bit of configuring. (I accidentally saved myself a bunch of time by trying to set up BibleTime first before installing Xiphos... which, apparently must use the same setup info, as Xiphos installed and started up pre-cofigured with what I was trying to accomplish with BibleTime) It can take a little bit of patience to configure, or to hunt down specific modules if what you need isn't in the repository. Works great as a concordance and some-what as a lexicon. If this package doesn't quite suite your needs, I HIGHLY recommend BibleAnalyzer by Timothy Morton, as it is also free, but amazingly powerful. (@prefersummer2 - AV & TSK, I whole-heartedly agree!) Note: Xiphos package has also been built for ARM processors, and works great on the pinebook!
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.
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.
Good alternative for e-sword .
very very nice.
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.
My favourite Bible study tool, but Davar3 is better :-)
Briljant! In het Nederlands is de statenvertaling + kanttekeningen beschikbaar. Verder veel extra's zoals bijv. de verklaring van Matthew Henry.
Worthy alternative to BibleTime. The repository manager is actually better than the one on BibleTime.
Needs more translations such as NKJV and AMP
Briliant BIble study program, has never crashed here :)
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...
Gracias ,saludos desde Chile
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.
No big deal...
but there is the new version: 3.1.4..
this is very very handy
adelante!!! pode ser mejor que el e-sword
