Description

The BibVision is a Bible text viewer for Amiga computer. It supports many of the freely available electronic text versions of Bible translations including

  • King James Version
  • The Vulgate
  • Finnish year 1938 and 1992 translations
  • Swedish year 1917 translation
  • German Luther Bibel 1545 translation
  • French Louis Segond (LSG) 1910 translation
  • French John Nelson Darby translation

The basic purpose of BibVision is to be able to study Bible. You can select the translation and book according to your taste and interest. For regular readers there's the bookmark; by setting it you can continue reading from this point later.
The strength of BibVision is, however, that it supports multiple (only memory limiting) windows. You can open the Bible simultaneously from multiple locations, or for comparing, even from different translations.

Furthermore, there's also a full single-or-multiple book pattern-matched search feature. You can search words in the Bible books by using regular AmigaDOS patterns.

Bug reports and suggestions

Please send all comments, bug reports and suggestions to my email (replace 'AT' with '@'). Include a description of your system (OS and BibVision version, hardware you ran BibVision on, other software and hacks running) and what you were doing when the bug came up. The Grim Reaper crash log would help, too. Please check if the erroneous action is reproducible.
