theWord Newsletter – November 30, 2012

theWord 4 is Out!

Simpler, faster, better than ever.
The best free Bible software now offers much more at the same price,        which is free!

Bible Reading Plans

Enjoy reading the Bible from a set of predefined and extensible list of Bible Reading plans, or create your own Bible Reading plan according to your own needs. theWord offers the most versatile setup options that allow you to tailor your plan to your personal style and pace like no other application.

Organize your Daily Readings

Now there is a single place to organize and follow your daily readings! Follow one or more reading plans, meditate on one or more devotionals each day, and keep track of all your readings in a single place. theWord will remind you every day (or whenever you want) of your plan and help you catch-up with your planned readings. It has never been easier to monitor your reading progress.

Integrated Module Installer

No need to run module installers anymore! You can now simply drag-n-drop modules in the integrated installer to easily add new modules to your installation and enjoy more content. theWord will now associate all known module extensions thus allowing you to install modules just by double-clicking on them.

Use theWord as Your Personal Ministry Tool

The new version of theWord allows you to customize and package it for your own personal needs! Create packages to share with a class, make your own distribution and provide your own unique content and welcome screen to your target audience.

Make your work easier with the new version of theWord.

Enjoy many more additions and features to make your experience better:

    Is there a Linux version of theWord in the pipeline?

    If not, is it Open Source — i.e. can one compile it to run on a UNIX/Linux platform?



    • Peter Pellerin

      Paul, theWord is not open source.

      theWord is my favorite software like Doug.

      It does not run native in Linux, here is a discussion on using it in Linux with wind or crossover: http://forum.theword.net/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=8

      I use another software alongside theWord (Bible Analyzer) that has a native LInux version. http://www.bibleanalyzer.com/download.htm

      • Paul

        Thanks, Peter (and apologies for the delay in replying): I’ll take a look…

  • peter romer

    I do wish you nwould stick with the KJV Douglas
    Peter in Australia

    • douglashamp

      Hi Peter, we use the KJV. Just for the record, however, I do not believe that the KJV is the only acceptable translation. I think the KJV only camp is slightly nutty. No translation is perfect and that includes KJV. They all have their pluses and minuses. KJV is a fine translation, but it is not the original. Hebrew and Greek are the original. Blessings.

      • Paul

        “I think the KJV only camp is slightly nutty.”

        The phrase “slightly nutty” sounds very British to my (British) ears! …And I agree with you: slightly nutty. Sort-of like a good breakfast cereal.

        On an entirely unrelated note… Being more American at heart than British, I’m listening to Gene Autry and I’ve just heard him singing of how “the longhorn cattle feed on the lowly Jimson Weed”.

        Now, I’m no farmer, but that doesn’t sound like a good idea.

        From what I understand, Jimson Weed is a very powerful deliriant — and a herd of paranoid, hallucinating longhorn surely isn’t quite the thing, as far as animal husbandry is concerned. Wouldn’t want to try milking them, anyway…

        Can someone please explain?
