I was very surprised that a religious tool is named "Sword". Is that the way christians want to evangelize? I hope not, that had been too often the case.

Really really good Bible app - I prefer it to Logos. Manfred is a good guy - he seems a little serious, but he's a good guy. I asked him about "MacSword" which is my go-to Bible app, and he was quick to point out that Eloquent is just as good, and that conversation brought me back to the app. I also discovered the ability to copy and paste text into the user module for a customized commentary. I copy and paste my epub NAC, chapters of Isaiah here and there depending on what I'm working on, and it keeps track of it verse by verse. Something that's hard to find in other Sword project apps. Does anyone know where to find MacSword online anymore? Or if it's being kept up? Just kidding, Manfred!

Hi Manfred, Can you help me with Strong's Hebrew Numbers that no longer work. I deleted something else, then lost the function. I tried to remove and redownload the whole app again, but it appears to remember me and when I check to update the module, it tells me I have it, so cannot reinstall it. I tired removing and reloading it, but nothing seems to work.

Overall I'm glad this exists, but one problem I had suggested to fix years ago is still there in the latest version. It still does not let one pre-select the Highlighted Text Color for a Bookmark or remember the color choice for it. In the main Preference Pane there should be a checkbox and selector for Bookmark Text Color or the Bookmark Edit Pane should remember the settings As is, one needs to check the Highlight box and select the color each time the Bookmark Edit pane opens. I don't know if this is too complicated, but maybe check how some Firefox Highlighting plugs handle this so elegantly. There is also a problem that I can't bookmark at all, unless I click each verse to open in a separate window, which is not the case in v.2.2.12.

Who is making decisions in programming of this software? It's really going downhill! The new name "Eloquent" instead of the nice old MacSword is plain ugly and without any biblical meaning. The new icon of the program is extremely ugly. Version 2.3.5 is still massively bug ridden, extremely slow even if you only have the standard KJV bible installed and nothing else. Try search! Unbelievable slooow, even when it grabs the power of both CPU cores shortly before the beach ball of death comes. In comparison to MacSword 1.4.4 which I still use Eloquent 2.3.5 is pure junk. MacSword 1.4.4 is very fast even with dozens of bibles and commentaries installed. Search is very quick. Sometimes it crashes, but it's a nice program. I'm not gonna try Eloquent anymore, it's a dead end with no future. If MacSword 1.4.4 stops working I will move on to another bible software. Be warned! Instead of Eloquent load the old MacSword 1.4.4 from their website. It still runs on OSX 10.6 (and should on Lion)! BTW: MacUpdate should update to the new icon of Eloquent!

This might be a bit harsh, but MacSword 2 simply doesn't work. The GUI is totally unintuitive, illogical and very hard to use. Nothing works like expected. The Search function doesn't work at all. The program crashes all the time (hangs with beach ball). Parallel views of bibles is not synchronous. Scrolling sucks. This program is not even an Alpha release. Totally useless. And it is totally slow on a Intel Duocore with 2,4 Ghz (MacSword 1 is light-speed fast). Developer: Scrap MacSword 2 and restart working on MacSword 1 again. I am using MacSword 1.4.4 and I'm very happy with that great software!

I have two problems with the latest version: 1. Multiple ref string entries into the search-field do not produce the respective text in the window. The page remains blank. 2. Bookmarks with multiple refs, which are given a title and saved show up in the sidebar often without the title. To get the title shown, the bookmarks must be dragged out and back inside their folder. Both the above occur intermittently.

Until today I had been one of those annoying, smug Mac users who had never experienced a crash and/or hang. And then I updated to MacSword 2.2.5. Don't get me wrong, my iMac is certain it has died and entered into heaven with 2.2.5, so beautifully does it do its job (finally Greek with accents!). My MacBook Air, however, will not run this application. It launches once, then quits - "unexpectedly". I have followed the usual advice; I have deleted all kinds of files and things; I have effected clean installs, etc. As a PhD student in theology, I am at a loss, and am considering sack-cloth and ashes as final recourse - though I reserve any hint of optimism, alas . . .

I, too, can't seem to be able to get it to work on OSX 10.6.3.

Ever since MacSword turned 2.0 I have been unable to get it to launch successfully on my 2008 iMac. I have commented on this a number of times before in this column, been told by the developer that it must be something about my specific system setup, that I should describe precisely what the problem is (which I do as best as I can), and the problem will be discovered and solved. I am trying once more to get a better result, namely a *solution* so I can use the app. My setup is: late 2008 iMac 24", 2.8 GHz Intel, 4 GB ram, OS 10.6.3 (the newest iteration). I have a modest number of apps I use regularly, most of which are in wide use by Mac Users. Hopefully this time will prove the charm. Tom G

There are some problems with Notes: - When Notes are dragged into Folders, the original note remains where it was, creating thus duplicates. - Editing both Notes and Folders is neither easy or obvious Having said this, I am very happy with the direction and progress of MacSword. I am spending less time with OnlineBible and more with MS. Great work!

Alright! This edition works in Snow Leopard 10.6.2. Installer still needs work - a ReadMe txt file is needed badly. After scouring the various web sites, I found the Movie instructions (which a ReadMe should state the URL for) and pulled down the latest zip's of the texts I wanted - I manually installed them - makes life easier but good work on the module-installer function. One complaint - it's irksome that after selecting a text, I have to type a chapter to get it to open in the workspace - the start of the text should just appear - then if I want to skip ahead and so forth, I can type in what I want or choose it from the right-side panel. IMHO. Looks like the application is on the right path. Needs better instructions in a ReadMe text instead of having to go to a wiki, a home page, et al - or at least the ReadMe should give the direct URL's to these pages.

AGAIN, no read me file in the installer. (Mannfred, even drag-n-drop installs are known as the installer, as far as the DMG is concerned - that's standard Mac lingo.) It would take VERY little effort to write a small text file on how to intall the modules. Copy/paste the relavent parts of the web page or forums into a text file and bundle it. I'm going to play with this latest update and hopefully it will work. I loved the old 'sword and really want this application up and going like the old days. SL 10.6.2

The recent update fixed the problems, and the software works great. It is presently significantly better than 1.x ever was. The developer is right, problems should be reported through proper procedures first, so the developer has a chance to work on these problems before he sees everyone in the world seeing a problem he could have fixed had he known about it.

This update broke it on my OS X 10.5 which was updated, not freshly installed from 10.4. Not sure why it's broke. I deleted it, downloaded the lasted from macsword.com and it still didn't start up. I'm guessing, though I could be wrong, that this update fixed snow leopard stuff and broke leopard stuff. Doesn't load up enough to update, so, I guess I'll have to keep checking back.

STILL does not work! I don't understand why the developer continues to issue public updates for Snow Leopard that just do NOT work. Sure, bugs are expected in alpha/beta/Release Candidates but they should basically WORK. For one thing, the installer come with no Read Me or anything, just the application. Secondly, the CrossWire page does not correspond with the actual program - example, it calls for creating a "Sword" folder under App Support - but the program creates a MacSword folder. This is pure laziness not to get your FAQ/help/support pages in line with the application. Secondly, what is stated as far as modules are concerned under preferences doesn't even exist in the application! There is still no accurate, simple instructions for getting the application pointed towards the modules or where to put the modules. Developer, spend some time getting your ducks in a row, PLEASE. This used to be a wonderful application. I'm getting very worried about its future.

I like the direction MacSword is taking. However, I believe some improvements are greatly needed before it can become a useful tool, such as: Better bookmark management by allowing nesting folders, or else, a provision for user-defined categories. Direct access to commentaries from the verse (Biblical Texts) layout (i.e. when verses are colourised, showing the presence of commentary) Ability to view "next" commentary without having to guess the verse under which it exists. If this exists already it isn't obvious.

All of the 2.0 betas, including this one (0b2), unexpectedly quit on my Macbook (2gRAM, 10.5.7). I remove 1.4.3, start 2.0, and that's it- a quit. I send the reports to Apple, but is there something to installing/running this app that hasn't been communicated? Theological hissy-fits aside, 1.4.3 is an excellent piece of software. I'd love to be able to try 2.0.

I do see how this is an improvement over MacSword 1.4 series. - 2.0 easily merges all of the places to click into one window. This is nice. Hope in the future to be able to re-arrange all sections with each other. I do not see why it was necessary to program only for 10.5 and up. While 10.5 is significantly nicer for the programmer in my opinion, Apple's own programs still have glitches for me in 10.5, which is why I recently went back to 10.4.11. For this reason, I think it would have been nicer for the user to have programmed for the 10.4 series and up.

this program is freaking great. it has allowed me to efficiently keep track of and access quickly, thousands of scriptural citations, which has aided my writing of many a paper. i mean, unless you want to spend hundreds upon hundreds of dollars on other "bible software", this is where it is at. there are many modules in many languages available (even some non-religious/dogmatic texts, also maps and such), and it uses webkit for its display of the modules, which means it natively supports any language your mac does. 5 stars! having said that; beff, you are a moron. one can argue with the accuracy of most historical accounts from the periods(s) in which the old and new testament literatures were written just as well as one can argue with the historicity of the biblical accounts themselves. the fact is, that aside from being inspirational and "spiritually relevant" reading for many people across the world, ANY "older" religious texts (that would include hindu, buddhist, zoroastrian, jewish, christian etc...) do AT-LEAST offer us valuable insight into early stages of human, cultural and psychological development. some of us study judeo-christian biblical texts for the same reason people across the globe are taught about greek and mesopotamian mythologies [as early as 4th or 5th grade in many schools], to gain knowledge about certain periods in time that we would otherwise know very little about, if it wasn't for the texts. older religious or "mythological" texts, regardless of the doctrines they espouse, offer us treasure troves of information about the history of this thing we call, the "human condition". atheist or theist, agnostic or gnostic, older religious scriptures can teach everyone a lot. to discount these valuable learning tools as merely "fantasies", is just plain ignorant.

I've been using this program for a bit over a year and it's generally great. Lots of downloadable modules allow searching in many different sources. In response to the guy who asked why one wouldn't use a web based program...It goes with you when there is no internet connection and it's also much faster. No need to reload pages. If you don't think a program is necessary, don't use, but don't leave negative comments about the program. Have a little respect for the developer who has obviously invested a lot of time in this.

MacSword is an excellent program. It is very simple with no extra features to bog it down. It simply does what it says. Since the update, it is very stable and it has saved me much time when trying to learn or study various passages of Scripture. The fact that this software is FREE is amazing to me. Anyone who wishes to study the Bible and who uses a Macintosh will benefit from this software.

Great icon, crusader flavour mixed with OS X spirit. I use it for my role playing games books ;)

Such hate towards a simple Bible study program. If you're so smarter and enlightened than the rest of us, why can't you come up with a better insult?

"Words can't describe the sorrow I feel for you." This is typical of a Christian, for sure. Such arrogance... What will happen when once you discover there's no god who's going to save you? I agree with the first poster: play World of Warcraft and stop feeling sorrow for anyone (except for you in any instance). And I triple-dare the previous poster to read the Bible seriously and face the truth: lies won't help anyone. Have the guts to be free to think for yourself.

Excellent product. However, bad MacUpdate/SourceForge cooperation. The "best" link for the product is at: ftp.sourceforge.net/pub/sourceforge/m/ma/macsword The http links here and at VT are bad/incorrect.

This is great software. No other literature in all human existance has a better collection of manuscript evidence than the Bible and this software brings it to your desktop. Excellent!

Macsword is the perfect tool for clergymen like me who are Mac users. The developers and maintainers of this program are to be highly commended for their contribution to the spreading of the Gospel of our Lord, and Savior, Jesus Christ. With sincere thanks, Rev. John Walls

Remember that a WHO (Person) is also a WHAT (Object). (A person is a special kind of object.) Please don't argue dogma here, or I'll come by and argue semantics. Thanks. :] (I'm not the dev)

How do I install the modules? On their website they only have instructions for Windows & Linux users. I can't even download the modules' .zip files. Otherwise that seems to be a good project!

Comment to enrico: Here's the deal: It's One WHAT(God), Three WHOs(Persons)...as opposed to this: One WHAT(God), Three WHATs(gods). Notice the WHATs and the WHO. They are two different catagories. To confuse the catagories misrepresents the one true triune God's nature. The latter example is a contridiction, the former is not. That is where most people's comparison examples break down. I am WHAT? Human. I am WHO? Tommy. I have only 1 person. God is different than me. God has a total of THREE eternaly existant, eternal seperate persons, where I have only one. He's One WHAT, Three WHOs. The bible is clear that there is but only 1 God. It's equaly clear that Father is that God, Son is that God, and HG is that God. Yet, there is but 1 God only, anywhere, anyplace, thru anytime ever. Thanks, hope this helps.

This, simply, is the best. Cocoa, services, module architecture......... it's just too nice. Now, if it could syc with an iPod or Palm or Tablet etc etc... It would be the perfect application. Wait! what about showing images like the Guttenburg Bible or illustrated Bible... Or, if the Sword project had encyclopedias...... LOL this would be the greatest!... well, i think it's already that. LOL

This is probably the best Bible-viewer I've seen for Mac OS X. I was about to write my own, but now these guys made a better one, so I'll stick with this one. =) -I'm hoping for more toolbar buttons (smaller/larger text, prev/next page, prev/next book, (perhaps a search field). I especially like that you can have verses on each their own line. Well done. (I'll mail the author with suggestions for more features!) =)

This is something most of us are having trouble understanding. But to try and provide an answer that we humans do understand, imagine a hand, where you see 3 fingers. These are separate fingers, however, they are actually one - and you will see that, when you see the entire hand. This is probably the best way I can explain in english (please forgive me, I'm from Denmark...) =) All the best...

some would say there are 3 and one at the same time - probably god is a class and the 3 are instances of class god.

I've only played with this a little, but here are a few things of note. (1) The program crashed whenever I closed the main Bible window (2) you can only view one chapter of the Bible at a time (3) searching the Bible was arduously slow. (4) The Strong's number links led nowhere. Presumably I need to download some dictionaries for them to work, but there was no warning message to that effect. MacSword is free, but there are much better Bible programs out there. The Christian Mac User's Group (http://www.cmug.org) is a good place for info.

It's nice at last to have an OSX version of some bible software. I can't get some of the modules to work, in particular the PRACTICE and NEENORMAL modules. This is great value, keep the modules coming.
