Apocrypha?
Bibletime 1.4.1 on Mandrake 10 Official.

I've looked around on the Bibletime site and on eSword's site, and I've found only one mention of an apocrypha: On eSword there's a KJV with apocrypha but it apparently is only for windows. I downloaded the Douay-Rheims Bible thinking it would have an apocrypha; I can see files in ~/.sword/modules/texts/rawtext/dra that look like they might be an apocrypha, but I can't make the apocrypha display in the books listing pull-down window. The manual and faq don't seem to cover this. crying

So is there any way for me to get at the D-R apocrypha, or any apocrypha?

In faith, Dave

Re: Apocrypha?
First, there's absolutely no relation between Sword (including BibleTime, GnomeSword, the SWORD Project for Windows, MacSword, etc.) and e-Sword. The modules are not interchangeable, the development processes are not similar, etc.

Sword does not currently support apocrypha at all. We're working on it and should have something available within one of the next two releases. (Sword 1.5.8 will be released fairly soon, and I don't believe the support for apocrypha will be ready by then.)

[Moving this thread to General Discussion.]

Re: Apocrypha?
OK, thanks for the info. Apologies for confusing Sword and eSword. I like Bibletime quite a bit.

I personally hope y'all get an Apocrypha pretty soon. I'm talking the deuterocanonical apocrypha.

cool   Re: Apocrypha?
If you have a Palm OS device, I know that the PalmBible+ application has at least one (and I think more than that) bible with Apocrypha. It also has Darby Translation notes for Apocrypha - kind of like a commentary. Good luck. cool
