I agree that MacSword should be at the top.
BPBible does run under Mac (with some slight problems), but I didn't have
time to package it up properly before the release of 0.4, so anyone wanting
to use it would have to install python 2.5 and wxPython and build the sword
binaries themselves. It's probably best to take it off this list for now.

God Bless,
Multitudes, multitudes,
   in the valley of decision!
For the day of the LORD is near
   in the valley of decision.
