BibleTime is not using Sword's support for CLucene, it has it's own 
implementation of module indexing, searching, etc.

It should be possible for your to use Sword's lucene support, but as soon as 
you have to change things (e.g. the indexer's type, the types of documents in 
the index) or you need more information about the internals (e.g. sword 
doesn't support versioned indexes yet) you might have to change Sword or 
implement your own solution.
Also be aware that CLucene is always behind Java Lucene in development.

Just my thoughts,
