Adding new modules to your existing module sets is so simple in TW4! Costas has included
a filter and several additional search parameters to make finding & filing your modules
Simply install a new module and open TW4. It recognizes that you’ve installed a new
module, and asks if you want to add it to one of the current views. Believe it or
not - you don’t!
Adding a module to one of the current views means replacing a permanent module set
with a temporary one. Once TW departs from the modules on your window, that temporary
set is gone, never to be retrieved again. It is best to immediately add new modules
to your permanent sets of modules. After installing a new module, then, you should
add it to at least one module set (and perhaps several of them, depending on the

As your library grows, you probably find yourself “tripping” over your digital books
occasionally. I know I do. Organizing and maintaining your digital library is as
important as keeping your office orderly.
eSword has two different maintenance features that are not intuitive; but once you
know that they are there, they’re certainly easy to use, and increase the power of
eSword. The two features are:
1) The Ability To Delete Modules
2) The Ability to Manage Modules & Module Tabs
Let’s take a look at each.

Several years ago, I secured copyright permission from Dr. Towns to turn several
of his free online books into eSword modules. Because they are available only in
.pdf format, I did not have a good method of converting the text into something that
would work well with eSword (.rtf - or, “Rich Text Format,” in case you’re interested...).
So, although I had permission, I did not immediately go to work on the texts.
Fast forward three years: I am introduced to a free software package called “Calibre”.
Calibre is an e-book reading software program. It’s intended purpose is to read etexts
from many different providers all in one platform. One of the tools inside of Calibre
is .pdf conversion - and it converts to .rtf. Well, with that discovery, I was off

This is a review of the Study Notes only from Thomas Nelson’s New King James Version
of the English Bible. It is not a review of the NKJV Bible itself. (I know, it’s
a little confusing....)
What do you do with a book that functions like a commentary, yet contains a large
section of topical material? Prior to TW’s hybrid module, something had to be sacrificed.
Well, not anymore!
To paraphrase a popular commercial - “I think you’re going to like the way it looks.
I guarantee it!” (Please remember this review is free.)

Many of our DDT users are serious students of the Bible. We do our Bible study sitting
in front of a large computer screen, with a mouse and keyboard at our fingertips.
Why? We’re studying to make notes so that we can then use our studies to teach others
But as technology continues to advance, some of us are also using Bible apps on our
phones. Maybe we’re not performing serious Bible studies with them; but we’re using
those 5-15 minute intervals that used to be wasted while we waited for someone to
serve us (doctor, mechanic, waitress, etc.) to do some free reading.
And now, I’m joining that group!
Starting October 28, I am going to post all of my modules not only for eSword and
theWord, but also for MySword. I am also going to start working backward and convert
many of my “classic” DDT modules for MySword use.
I’m not sure what the final format of my MySword page is going to be; but for now,
you can start visiting it regularly (daily?) to download modules for your MySword

Many of us don’t just use our Bible software educationally nor exegetically; we also
use our Bible software experientially. And that requires, among other niceities,
a prayer list.
Unfortunately, TW does not integrate any kind of official prayer list module. Fortunately,
TW is easily customizable and the user can create his own.
I’m sure that many TWers have created their own simple prayer lists. It isn’t difficult
to do. But for those who haven’t done so yet, let me give you what I’ve developed.
It’s an unofficial “My Prayer-list” module built as a general book (.gbk.twm) TW
