FWIW - The developer is a nice guy. I've emailed him in the past and has responded politely and professionaly. He's more than willing to offer the software for free and it runs nicely, too. My thoughts are that if you'd like to encourage him, send him a little extra.

james - i have written the developer as well, but not about the translation matter. It seems the comment he gave you is rather "free will-ish". I mean, starting a petition to get a bible translation or commentary released to public domain? Sometimes the six year olds say all that's necessary - Out of the mouths of babes...

I wrote the developer letting him know that I had written Zondervan (which he requests users to do in the "read me" file in order to get them to allow him to use the NIV translation)... I also told him perhaps there should be a petition started... His response... "if you want". What? Not a "thanks, that'd be appreciated"... not, "thanks, but it's probably not a good idea".. just, "if you want". My 6 year-old gives more than that. I won't use the program. Accordance is the real stuff, though it could be prettier. As far as the KJV, I disagree about it's worthiness.. many, many, people died for this translation to exist, and while "variants" do exist, it does not change the theology of the books... I apologize, I realize this is not the place for such explanations.

You are easily offended. Sometimes people feel there is a need for something, but are not sure if burning torches in front of the house is the best way... which is what sending a petition to Zondervan would be doing. Calm down. He never said that the King James version was worthless or degraded it. It IS the version he is using with iBible! This is why the body of Christ falls apart. We get so offended by the smallest things. Lighten up brother.

KJV is public Domain. Most others arent. I'm sure if anyone would care to provide the developer with the funds to license the NKJV or something hed be happy to do so.

It's a good program, but it'll be somewhat useless until it is accompanied by an accurate translation of Holy Scripture. Why do folks cling to the inaccurate KJV when there are many and better translations out there. The KJV is the TRS-80 of Biblical translations.

I have heard that the folks from the Baptist religion say that the King James is more than a translation. How can that be since it was a person who translated it and he was far from a holy man as I have heard. I feel the same as you do about it and thought I'd comment you. :)I prefer the NASB personally.

This is a great beginning. I wish the developer wisdom and capability as he expands this program. For anyone's info, there are other Bible programs available, some online and some downloadable: Online: http://bible.crossdaily.com/ http://www.blueletterbible.org/index.html Downloadable: http://www.online-bible.com/maconlinebible.html

This is an amazing program, thank you very much Mr. Wright! I've been looking for a decent program like this forever, and this one is infinitely better than I expected to find :)

I think the iBible is excellent and can't wait for the other translations. Regarding selling the Bible - when were we able to walk into a bookshop and ask that we have the Bible on the shelf for free?!

when i tried to install the new translation, it didn't work. It won't even let me into system preference because it's trying to load. I had to deleat the whole program an re-download it. also, the strongs concordance has problems. I would say about 20% of the time, it won't show the correct strongs definition for the words.

That's too bad Einstein couldn't imagine such a thing. The place where he stumbled was over the question of good and evil, and invited two ministers of different faiths to his house to discuss. He didn't get a satisfactory answer, but obviously the question bothered him. He never did seek to find out whether it was true or not, whether it was historical, etc. But stumbled with his own questions, though convinced there must be a God who "didn't play dice with the universe". (Thank you for this software, Lief)

"I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own -- a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotism."

Excellent and easy to use. I love this. I wish it came in NKJV, but it is a wonderful tool! One flaw is a mismatch of a few Strongs numbers with their words and the other is that the program closes if the Strongs number window is not closed before trying another search.
