Great to have a KJV Bible for Mac OS X!
Bible Viewer is simple enough to use, but pretty generic.

I would be nice to have some viewing options and customization of colors and Fonts like Bible Viewer 2.01 for Mac OS 9.
Hint, hint =)

I have been using BRF for a good while now and I have to say it is excellent.
Can't wait for version 1.
I use it in personal study and in ministry to JWs where it has proven itself to be invaluable.
Thank you! (Philippians1:3)

You should do a similar thing with Shakespeare's works. That would be grand!

I am pleased to see this type of software being developed. Searching the Scriptures has been a part of my maclife for some time now, and simply easy and beautifu on OSX. I've had BRS since X.0, have been looking at Accordance, iBible, and my Personal favorite... MacSword. Bible Reader looks like it will take it's place among these. I'd like to see a fuller toolset. When Accordance has been around for years (thanks for updating for X), BRS (no longer in development?) pioneered Bible Reading on OS X, the Palm Reader elegantly presents the scripture for reading, iBible like, the others (except BRS) providing Bookmarks in its features list and the Cocoa built, MacSword, makes Bible Reading powerful (Built upon the Sword Project: An attempt at a Klingon Version shows it's power! Chinese, French, Swahilli, RED LETTER FEATURE!!!etc.) and simple. I love accessing the software via services from other apps(great when discussing scriptures via Instant Messaging or Chatrooms)... What i'm waiting for.. is one of these to present a Guttenberg style Bible.. or not only pics, decorative text items... but, encyclopedias.. with dictionary like illustrations of antiquited ideas and objects. (i.e. Solomon's earthquake resistant, building methods.. 3 layers of stone.. one of timber.., or ancient images etc.) i encourage the developer to keep up the great work! Maybe you all should "talk amongst yourselves...." see what you can do.

Searching with Swaps activated was added in version 0.98, but it's incredibly slow when searching complete books of the Bible, and in my opinion, unusable. This 'feature' will be removed until it can be reworked. An updated version will be posted to the website hiddenfield.com tomorrow. Apologies to everyone who downloaded the current version.

Works great, it's easy to use and has a wonderfully clean interface. Very streamlined. And the search feature is lightning fast: On my eMac, using Panther 10.3.4, I ran a a whole Bible search for "peace." Bible Reader found 426 verses in 23 seconds (I think that's about one per every 5 hundredth of a second, I think). Then I ran a New Testament search for "joy" and received 63 finds in a little under 9 seconds.

Highly recommended!
