Synopsis

GnomeSword is one of a family of programs suitable for viewing bible texts provided by The SWORD Project. GnomeSword uses Gtk2 to show the user selected verses, commentaries, dictionaries, and other common useful features. In Oct 2006 it was recompiled against the then latest SWORD libraries for better placement of text on screen, though earlier versions will generally work okay, but not look as pretty if you know what you're looking for. In comparison to other programs such as BibleTime (KDE-based) and BibleDesktop (Java-based), it provides plenty of features and is well worth a look, and also supports many non-English versions of the Bible such as Hebrew, or Greek.
