NANY 2018 Release: Ready Bible Study v2.90
« on: December 19, 2017, 08:53 PM »
Version 2.90 of this program was just uploaded. I merged in most of the functionality of two other applications. I wanted to add it here as it involved several hundred hours of work. I'm not trying to proselytize to anyone. I was just amazed that AutoHotkey could manage 40 megabytes of text files as fast as it does to create a working Bible Study application. I heavily modified a number of Bibles, Commentaries, Dictionaries, etc. into INI files and used the R_INI library to access them. It's just a good example of AutoHotkey capabilities.

Users may press F6 to start Audio playback from any displayed text. Pressing F6 multiple times places items into an Audio queue. Audio may be paused or stopped. If Audio is playing when the program is exited, the user will be prompted to restart from the last item in the queue when the program is started next time. [that took a lot of work]

There are many more screenshots on the program's Blog page.

@mat2016: That looks interesting.
Could you please inform us a bit more about this?
e.g., Which Bible and which version/translation this is based on?
I looked over the relevant post on your blog/website, but could not immediately see an answer. Informative website, by the way.

At the bottom of the Zoomed View image, it says KJV.

It has three Bible translations:

1) King James 1769
2) American King James 1999 (just a simple replacement of some 'archaic' words, mainly Thee, Thou, etc.)
3) Lexham English Bible 2012 (from Logos Bible software - more info)

There are several other free to use translations that I could make available.

@mat2016: I would be very interested if you had the Watchman Nee New Testament Recovery Version with all of its cross-references. I have a hardcopy of that and have often thought that a a computerised version would be an ideal reference source.
The best such i have come across so far is: The Interfaith Explorer (FREE) - Mini-Review

I looked at the website for the Recovery Bible. I'm not sure if I can request that text. It's only New Testament so that would be interesting in itself to integrate into my application.

The site I looked at is: Recovery Bible

Yes, that is it. I am pleased that you took the trouble to go and look - and yes, it was a simple test, of sorts.
The Recovery Bible does not seem to have any particular religio-political bias, though I think its theological basis on the New Testament might deny the historically more recent Holy Trinity - i.e,., the Nicene Creed which was invented as dogma by the RC Church in about 325AD***, and thus which authenticity Islamism tends to protest about (with arguably good reason).

Note: ***
Nicene Creed /nVI"si;n, "nVI-/
ยท n. a formal statement of Christian belief, widely used in liturgies and based on that adopted at the first Council of Nicaea in 325.
Concise Oxford Dictionary (10th Ed.)
__________________________________________
NB: This creed invented the dogma of the Holy Trinity, and, politically, it served a useful purpose for preserving the solidarity of the Church, at a time when a major schism may have been threatened.

Hallo!

What do you/Lexham have for the word "meek" in the "meek shall inherit the earth..."?
This is only a fast note to get this post on the board, but I have been listening to Jordan Peterson for a week (stay with his psychology and some religion, and away from the poitical gadfly stuff!)

He remarked in a clip (now buried in my notes) that instead of "meek" as near "timid", one translation of the phrase comes out "those who have weapons and know how to use them, but then vow to keep them sheathed if at all possible" ... shall inherit the earth!

Quite a new direction to think about!

I'm not sure about the meek keeping weapons ready but in this day and time it's probably a good idea. If you press ALT-T from the Mini View and search on meek you will find all relevant verses. Or from the Zoomed view, click the Topics tab and choose Meekness from the drop down list. Pressing F12 will rotate through the three Topical references.

What Christ really means by Meek - Dr. Jordan Peterson -
-YouTube

he is saying that one interpretation said "it meant something like..."

It's not difficult to be meek, if the other guy is stronger. But it's big, if you are the strongest, but withdraw from using your physical strength to get your will. "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit" says the LORD of hosts.

@mat2016, I am very pleased that you're including the rare LEB, Lexham English Bible.

Post modified:

The Kindle version of Recovery Version is $10 and without footnotes, so there is no free meal there.

Interesting. Contrast that with the hardcopy version, that I got out of interest when they dropped a flyer in my letterbox a few months back. It is given away free by Bibles For New Zealand (bfnz.org.nz).

Details:
  • First edition, 1985
  • Revised edition, 1991.
  • ISBN 978-1-57593-907-0 (economy edition, black).
  • Published by Living Stream Ministry (LSM), Anaheim, California, USA.
  • Printed in India, on what looks like high quality bible paper.
  • It's very well printed, with small but clear fonts and copious footnotes and cross-references and margin notes/cross-references.
  • Binding is a glued spine with a tough paper-backed vinyl (flexible plastic) cover, with a pigskin grain effect.
  • It has a simple vinyl/plastic sleeve.
