Hi 
 
I have just started creating The Layman's Bible Commentary module as I couldn't find this module for e-sword.
 
This is going to be the first module that I'm trying to create so the process may be a little more difficult that I expect.
 
Please let me know if this have already been created.
 
I downloaded the PDFs from archive.org but unfortunately they don't have all the books, their copyright status shows "Out of copyright"
They were published between 1959-1964 so are now over 50 years old.
 
Thanks
 
Alex

Congratulations on making your first module. This looks very good!

 

Two suggestions:

 

1. Make one quick pass through your text with your editor window width resized narrower or wider. This will reveal line breaks that shouldn't be there. (These can be difficult to notice if they happen to align with the width of your editor window and resizing the window width for one quick pass reveals them. They will stand out).

 

2. Matthew 18:1-35 (The New Community): is that supposed to be blank?

 

The quality of the text digitization is truly excellent!

Thanks for the tip about narrowing the margins, this will save me hours on the next few books, I only made the margin wider but I couldn't easily remove the line breaks that shouldn't be there.

 

 

The New Community has the text below, it's a heading for the next few verses/ passages, the author usually has a summary about those verses but in this case they didn't so I tend to mark those broader headings as a chapter comment rather than a verse but I understand your point when they are empty they don't fit there, maybe I just mark the broader heading as a verse for 8:1-14?? how do you normally deal with headings for multiple verses or passages.

 

The New Community (18:1-35) 
 
Great and Small in the Kingdom (18:1-14; Mark 9:33-49) 
 
The Gospel by Mark sketches a very vivid picture of this episode, showing the disciples wholly occupied with the question of their own greatness and Jesus taking a little child in his arms and giving them an example. These details are lacking in Matthew. He includes only the question posed here by the disciples themselves, and the reply of Jesus....................
 
Of Pardon (18:15-35; compare Luke 17:3-4) 
 
Here again, the thought concerns the new community established by Jesus. The question may be raised whether verses 15-17 go back to Jesus himself or whether they are the fruit of a later

Let's use your example text above.

 

"Great and Small in the Kingdom" applies to Matthew 18:1-4 and Mark 9:33-49. When using ToolTip NT, your markup would look like this:

 

√∑Matthew 18:1-4; Mark 9:33-49

Great and Small in the Kingdom (18:1-14; Mark 9:33-49) 
 
The Gospel by Mark sketches a very vivid picture of this episode, showing the disciples wholly occupied with the question of their own greatness and Jesus taking a little child in his arms and giving them an example. These details are lacking in Matthew. He includes only the question posed here by the disciples themselves, and the reply of Jesus....................
 
---
 
The comments then appear for both Matthew 18:1-4 and Mark 9:33-49.

The following volumes have also been added to the commentary

 

VOLUME 6 THE BOOK OF JUDGES THE BOOK OF RUTH THE FIRST AND SECOND BOOKS OF SAMUEL

VOLUME 17  THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO MARK
 

Hi Josh

 

I have tried applying a single comment to multiple verses as per your example but it's not working for me, the Tooltip guide has the coding the same as your example but they only apply it to the same book, any suggestions to getting this to work? because The Layman's Bible Commentary Volume 18 (Luke) author renewed their copyright I was thinking of using comments for Luke from the other volumes (books).

Matthew 11:2-6; Luke 7:18-23

Josh I worked it out, the multiple verse references option had to be selected in the Tooltip commentary menu.

I'll reset the uploaded date every time you had a book, so it goes to the top of the New e-Sword Modules list.
