Of course. Thank you for taking the time to seek Him before jumping in.

Of course-- again! We can always use commited engineers with a right
heart. Praise God for you considering to commit time and energy in this
effort with us.

Very useful, though I'm not disciplined enough to stick to a plan like
that! Some mornings I read a chapter, and others I get caught up and
have to make myself stop :)

Try our API primer, at: http://www.crosswire.org/sword
Then select 'Development'
Then 'SWORD API Primer'
This should get ya started. Then I'd grab the source and see if ya can
get some of the tests/ examples/ or even the utilities/ programs
compiled and running. They are fairly small little programs that you
can change around and experiment with.
Hope this helps. Praying for you,
