Bible time is a real blessing, I recommend it to all of my friends.
Some of them use e-Sword on Windows, and in fact I assisted a friend to
acquire it and install it just the other night.
There are plenty of resources in the Crosswire Bible Society
fileservers, but I was wondering if it could be possible to download a
Paid for Bible from the e-Sword repository?
For example, I would like to install the NASB in BibleTime, even if I
have to pay for it. I also have a copy of the NASB on my Palm OS
device. I imagine that it is in .pdb format. What sort of format
should BibleTime Bibles have?

Thank you for your responses, Martin and Peter. I trust that although I

it may pass through moderation fairly quickly.
I have cut and pasted the earlier messages in this thread for clarity.
I imagined that the e-Sword (Windows) program was drawing on the sword
libraries, so when I discovered that there were a number of works which
could be purchased for e-Sword, I naturally thought that there may have

I understand that Open Source means that apart from the software making
the source code available, in many cases it is also free as in gratis,
zero cost. In my early days of Mandrake 7, 8, 9 and 10 I travelled
free. But I realised that the effort in producing great software needed
financial support, and so I became a paid member of the Mandrake (now
Is there any relationship (other than the blood of Christ) between the
e-Sword project and the Sword Project? Does the Crosswire Bible Society
intend to have a range of translations available for sale?
Is the current NASB module to be a free or "paid for" product?
Many thanks, and God Bless
