This module is now verse by verse with previously missing content: http://www.biblesupp...stament-4-vols/

Alford was a talented artist, as his picture-book, The Riviera (1870), shows, and he had abundant musical and mechanical talent. Besides editing the works of John Donne, he published several volumes of his own verse, The School of the Heart (1835), The Abbot of Muchelnaye (1841), The Greek Testament. The Four Gospels (1849), and a number of hymns, the best-known of which are "Forward! be our watchword," "Come, ye thankful people, come", and "Ten thousand times ten thousand." He translated the Odyssey, wrote a well-known manual of idiom, A Plea for the Queen's English (1863), and was the first editor of the Contemporary Review (1866–1870).

His chief fame rests on his monumental edition of the New Testament in Greek (4 vols.), which occupied him from 1841 to 1861. In this work he first produced a careful collation of the readings of the chief manuscripts and the researches of the ripest continental scholarship of his day. Philological rather than theological in character, it marked an epochal change from the old homiletic commentary, and though more recent research, patristic and papyral, has largely changed the method of New Testament exegesis, Alford's work is still a quarry where the student can dig with a good deal of profit.
His Life, written by his widow, appeared in 1873 (Rivington).

Thanks for doing this commentary. It is great to have Gnomen, ExpGNT in e-sword. Is there a way to shorten the length of the name "The Greek New Testament by Henry Alford" to AlfordGNT?? Just a thought.
Jogirl, the abbreviation has been updated. Thanks for the suggestion.
Thanks, pfpeller, I missed it.
Hi pfpeller,
can I convert your file to obtain a BibleWorks module to use in BibleWorks and share it with other BibleWorks users.
Thanks
Hello,
I answered your PM as well, but this is in the public domain, no permissions necessary.
Thanks,
Peter
Hi pfpeller,

For some folks, like me who have a slow internet connection, could you please have this in a compressed file format e.g. zip

Thanks,

Dyan
Thanks for this. I have one copy of the 4 volume set and really wanted to study the set. Now I can, yippee!
Indeed this is a quarry that deserves to be dug, and in digging many wonderous things come to light. Enjoy this everyone.
Great resource to have on e-sword, however the Greek font appears as a mixture of letters and numbers. Since other modules with Greek text are ok is there any way to fix the problem for this particular module? Evidently not everyone has experienced this issue.

Thanks
Aaron

Hi Aaron,
Hopefuly there will be a fix someday. The Greek displays on Vista/Windows 7 but not XP for some reason. When you fix it for XP then it does not work in Windows 7/Vista. I think there will be a fix so it will work right for all someday (hopefully soon).
Blessings,
Peter
Thank you for your work. It would be wonderful to give to Alford the same formatting that we have seen for Nicoll, Pulpit, Bengel, and Lange as of recent. Thank you once again.
