      Description

      When clicking in a daily devotional for a bible passage, it is generally an entire chapter. This makes the popup preview pane much to small to be usable. Making it resizable would help, but it would make more sense and intuitive to load it into the main bible window instead. I can work force this to happen by clicking a passage link in the preview pane and then closing it.

        Hi Marco, which devotional are you reading when you see this?
        Those devotionals that are simply Bible readings (such as BibleCompanion, OneYearRead or MCheyne) will make the Bible reading open in the Bible tab. For all other devotionals it will appear in the small window at the bottom. I have picked the devotionals that seem most appropriate for the verse to appear in the Bible tab, but I am open to suggestions of others to add to this list!

        Actually, I rolled my own using "For the Love of God" by D. A. Carson for my own personal use. Carson's work is a slight modification of MCheyne along with his own excellent commentary. Each day's commentary is a several paragraph commentary so maximum screen real estate is desirable.

        Since Carson currently offers it freely online on his site (thegospelcoalition.org), I've contacted him requesting permission to redistribute it (hopefully via crosswire) and am awaiting a response.

        Contact me offline if you're interested in details about this devotional.
