Bible Desktop is free Bible Study software. It is actively improved with releases every few months.

Bible Desktop is based upon JSword, a Java implementation of the SWORD C++ Engine. As such Bible Desktop works with all SWORD Modules.



Bible Desktop has the following distinctive features:

Web Start Bible Desktop

If you have Java SE installed, this includes the Java Web Start technology called javaws. In Windows, to launch the Bible Desktop nightly build using Web Start, without having to open a browser, create a Windows command file containing the following line.

@start javaws

Save this with a suitable filename, such as BD_WS.cmd and then create a Windows shortcut to it. To go the whole hog, you may wish to optionally change the shortcut properties, such that the command window starts minimized, and even apply a suitable icon, such as the one found in BibleDesktop.exe
