Esword is a wonderful tool for studying the Bible. It gives you multiple translations, but in addition, commentaries, reference works,and even Historical volumes such as the Church Fathers. I find this great! But, I do have some questions.

For example, I realise that studying things such as other Religious is important, and I know that some people who load Esword belong to differing views. EG, Catholics and Protestants alike load Esword. I myself am a member of the Churches Of Christ, so am neither Catholic nor Protestant. (Restoration Theology denies the central tenet of Protestantism, Salvation by Faith Alone.)

I am sure some people who load this tool are Mormon, or members of the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints, Or the Community Of Christ, or some other offshoot.

So, both for those loaders who are Mormon, and for those of us who would want to study Mormonism, having the Book Of Mormon is a valuable resource.

But, I wonder two things.

The first is, why is it in the Bible tabs? I realise its Scripture to the Mormons but this makes it difficult to use. I also realise that the Bible programme doesn’t have the books in the Book Of Mormon so it'd be hard to load it, but, as Esword has other areas, why not use them?

EG, Esword has a Reference Library. Why not load the Book Of Mormon into that instead? It'd make it easier to read, and fit better in with the programme's parameters.

That said, why not also load the modern Book Of Mormon, the Doctrine And Covenants (Both LDS and RLDS) and the Pearl Of Great Price?

I'd do this but don't yet know how to make Modules, so I'm just asking if its possible to make module’s for the Book Of Mormon, and the other Mormon Scriptures for the Reference Library instead of the Bible Tab, and why the Book Of Mormon 1830 is in the Bible Tabs.

Thanks, sorry to be an inconvenience.

They (and several others) are availible in topx and refx files


If you do a search of the downloads you will find these and more.
Thus says the LORD, "Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, (Jeremiah 9:23-24a)

"Defenders of the faith are inclined to be bitter until they learn to walk in the light of the Lord. When you have learned to walk in the light of the Lord, bitterness and contention are impossible." --Oswald Chambers, in Biblical Psychology from The Quotable Oswald Chambers.
