Some of us knew very little about the technical side off Bible study when we started. We grew with the aches and pains of trial and error. God bless you in your endeavor. I'm looking forward to seeing your work.
There's more there than I remembered that is still available to make as modules. However, it is more than just copy/paste. Mr. Andrews inserted a lot of graphic letter instead of text letters into his work. Still, there it is.
I just checked my personal library, and I find a total of 18 titles for G. Campbell Morgan. I think all but one of them are available either here or at my site. ("Discipleship" by GCM is the one title I'm not sure of. I have it, but it is in poor order. When I get around to it, I'll clean it up and make it available.)
1923 is a key date for much of the work done at sites like this one. That is the copyright public domain cutoff date. Anything done prior to that year is public domain. About half of Morgan's works were published prior to 1923. Those are his public domain works. Several years back, a small team of module builders worked hard at mining the "G. Campbell Morgan Archives" to turn the available public domain works into modules. Our focus was on his expository works. The result were books like these being made into modules: Malachi's Message to the Men of Today, The Acts of the Apostles, The Crises of the Christ, The Gospel According to Mark, The Gospel According to Matthew, The Great Physician, etc. These titles are all public domain. I also know that some other individuals not associated with the group just mentioned also built some GCM modules.
BibleSupport user "David Psalms" somehow got permission from Mr. Andrews to turn The Parables and Metaphors of Our Lord into a module. We jumped at that, because in my opinion, it was one of Morgan's best works. Alas, it is my understanding that it is the only Morgan work published after 1923 legally available as a module.
I don't remember if we have all of Morgan's pre-1923 titles available as modules. I do believe we have most of them, and the best of them, available.
Even if someone has the "raw materials" from the above mentioned site, they would have to have copyright permission to publish the 1923+ titles here in any fashion. Of course, anything published in 1922 and earlier is public domain. Those raw materials not yet converted to modules would make great fodder for module building.
I'm using an older version of T4 (2.31 - should I be embarrassed?) and tried for the first time ever to turn a module into a .pdf file. I went to the file menu, chose "Save As" and then .pdf. It created the file - but when I used Adobe Acrobat reader to look at it, there were only blank pages. I've attached the .pdf to this post.
I had to look this up. Here is a wikipedia article for those unfamiliar with egalitarianism.
adiel, not only is this site a conservative, evangelical site; it also focuses on materials that are in the public domain. The vast majority of available resources for modules were originally written in 1922 or earlier, with a few from 1963 and earlier. Mainstream egalitarianism is more recent than that. The result is that it's writings are still under copyright.
I seriously doubt you'll find anything like that here.
The bad news here is that migrating your sermon notes to eSword is going to be cumbersome. The good news is that it can be done.
Now, not knowing how long you've been sermonizing, nor how many older sermons you have to convert, you may "pick and choose" here how best to proceed. Here are some ideas you might be able to utilize.
The "Topic Notes" editor is more useful than first appears. At first glance, it looks like you'd have to actually file every individual topic in this one topic.topx file as an individual chapter. You could do that. Or - you can hold down the CTRL button while you right-click the mouse, and make a "new" *.topx module (and call it "grace" or "law" or "fool", etc.) or open another module you've already created. This would allow easy access to multiple topic modules. In fact, the "Reference Library" is, for the most part, a simple reader for *.topx modules.
The "Study Notes" are simply your own comments on individual verses of the Bible. By the way, if you hold down the CTRL button while you right-click the mouse, you'll discover that you can create more than one set of comments (you could have a "MrRhodes" set of study notes, and a "MrsRhodes" set of study notes, etc.). If you'll think about the options there, it expands the potential you have for filing.
This section of notes is the least useful for your purposes, but if you wanted to file anything by the date entered, this is the section of the notes that you would use. And again notice that you can open/create multiple different journal notes.
BRINGING IT TOGETHER
If I wanted to migrate all of my sermons/notes into eSword, I would divide them in my mind into two categories: expository studies, and topical studies. Then, I would copy/paste the expository studies into the appropriate study.notx file verses.
The topical notes will probably require a little more thinking. Do I want one massive topic file, or lots of smaller topic files? Once that is decided, it is simply a matter of copy/paste into the file(s) in question.
Your decisions here are probably party determined by the amount of material you already need to manage. I've been preaching for 25 years, so I think about this task and say "ugh." However, if you want to leave your notes as a legacy to anybody, this might be the cheapest way to do so. AND once it is done, adding your weekly notes will be simple - especially if moving forward you actually use eSword as your primary word processor for sermonization.
The AMG Dictionary (made famous by Spiros Zodhiates) is worth the price. The dictionaries mentioned in the above post are all good; but the AMG dictionary surpasses them for original language research. Add that to the fact that all you'll need to do is click the Strong's #, and you get right to the correct root word. For eSword, this is the one dictionary for this kind of work.
Let me encourage you to find and download the Greek New Testament Bible "TRi" (available here) and use it in conjunction with the RMAC dictionary (available within eSword's dowloading system). The Greek language is verb intensive. The TRi NT has extra codes in it that allow easy research into verb tenses, especially when used in conjuction with the RMAC. If you really want to look into original language, verb tense is almost as important as root words.
NOTE: The AMG dictionary is tied to both the OT and NT. I wanted to mention that since my comments were all specific to the NT, but it's OT comments are also "best available" for eSword OT language work.
ALSO: I checked the Stanford University copyright renewal database, and didn't find any of Marsh's works listed - meaning they are almost certainly public domain (the Stanford database is a gold standard for checking copyright renewal for works originally copyrighted 1923-1963). His works would make an excellent addition here at Biblesupport as free eSword modules.
It would appear his "Larger Catechism" is available here only as an eS7-8 file (http://www.biblesupp...atechismtopexe/) - perhaps one of our BibSuppers would be willing to convert it and upload it. Otherwise, the text is available freely on the internet, and is public domain. The text from this site - http://www.sacred-te...er/largecat.htm - would be relatively easy to turn into an eS9-10 module.
I've posted three here you might be interested in. Search the download (upper right hand corner of this window - change from "this topic" to "downloads") for "Fred Wight." You'll find three of his titles: one on archaeology, one on OT types, and another on manners and customs. (Don't get the one posted by Module Robot; look for the ones I've uploaded.)
Any module I've made includes copyright information in it. The vast majority of my modules are public domain. Just check in the module's contents (or the "about" tab) to find any relevant copyright information. Any of my public domain modules may be freely transmitted into other Bible software programs without prior permission.
