Chapter 1. Introduction

BibleThumper is a complete study Bible application written PalmOS handhelds. It includes a full text Bible, Strong's concordance, fast searching, bookmarks, dictionary, commentaries and greek/hebrew lexicons.

Reading the Bible at John 3:16

The BibleThumper resources ( Bible, concordance, commentaries, etc...) are in separate databases so they may be installed according to your needs. New commentaries, lexicons, etc. can be added later to expand your study tools. The smallest installation of BibleThumper takes approximately 1.5MB which includes the BibleThumper application, Bible, bookmarks, and personal commentary . Version 1.1 and above supports all VFS enabled memory cards.

BibleThumper has many features to help you get into God's Word. The concordance makes it fast and easy to find the verse you're looking for. Webster's 1828 Dictionary gives you the proper definition of Bible words. The Strong number database and lexicons help you look into the original tongues of the Bible. Bookmarks save your favorite verses and feature notes for each bookmark and categories for organizing. Commentaries feature hyperlinked verse references, just tap and go to the verse.

This User's Manual describes all the features of BibleThumper and will help you in your use of the application.

Keyboards

BibleThumper is designed to allow most features to be accessed from the keyboard. At the end of every section of the manual a list of keyboard functions is listed. Some features are accessible using the Option key. This key may be labeled something different, such as Function.


Chapter 2. Installation

Installation of BibleThumper is the same as any other PalmOS handheld application. If you do not know how to install applications on your PalmOS handheld, please consult PalmOS handheld documentation.

Important: Read the installation instruction carefully! BibleThumper requires that certain databases are installed in order to run.


What to Install

If you are running Windows, you may run the setup.exe application to install the main parts of BibleThumper. Additional databases, such as commentaries, can be installed using the following instructions.

You do not need to install everything provided in the package. BibleThumper is designed to use as little or as many resources as you can fit into your PalmOS handheld. You may install other resources later and BibleThumper will find them. Some databases are required, the following table describes each file in the package and whether you need to install it. The databases you have may vary from this table depending on where you received the package and how large it was. All databases are available at the the web site.

Table 2-1. BibleThumper Databases

File What Is It? Required?
BibleThumper.prc The BibleThumper program. Yes
KJV with Strong's Numbers.pdb The King James Bible with Strong numbers from Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. You need either this database or the next for BibleThumper to run. Installing this database will allow you to tap on a word while reading the Bible and see the original Hebrew or Greek word and a definition from Strong's lexicon. If you are concerned about size, install the next Bible.
KJV without Strong's Numbers.pdb The King James Bible without Strong numbers. You need either this database or the previous for BibleThumper to run. This database is smaller but still has the full text of the Bible.
Concordance.pdb The concordance used for fast searching. No, but searching will be slow.
Webster1828.pdb Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language No
Strong's Hebrew Lexicon.pdb Hebrew lexicon from Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. No
Strong's Greek Lexicon.pdb Greek lexicon from Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. No
Commentary Directory Various commentaries. No

Memory Cards

BibleThumper 1.1 and above can be installed on memory cards such as Compact Flash and other similar cards. Your handheld must support the VFS Manager, which is a standard feature of PalmOS 4.0 and above. The VFS Manager may be added as an extension to older PalmOS versions. Please consult your hardware documentation as to whether it supports VFS enabled applications.

The BibleThumper application file (i.e. BibleThumper.prc) must be installed in the /PALM/Launcher directory of your card. You may also choose to install it in the RAM of the handheld and store the databases in the memory card.

The databases must be installed in one of the following directories in order for BibleThumper to find them.

/BibleThumper /PALM/Bible
/Bible /PALM/Launcher/BibleThumper
/PALM/BibleThumper /PALM/Launcher/Bible

Note: MemPlug owners cannot use the PiDirect application to run BibleThumper from a memory card accessed through MemPlug. As per the MemPlug website, PiDirect is only for read-only applications. BibleThumper is not a read-only application, it writes to databases to save your bookmarks, personal commentary and temporary copies of Bible text, notes, dictionary definitions, etc. As of this writing there is a beta application PiVFSMgr that adds VFS Manager support to MemPlug devices. This may or may not work for you. Please check the MemPlug website and/or their technical support for status.

Chapter 10. Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions about BibleThumper.

1. Installation
1.1. After I order I only get one file that is very small compared to the ZIP file I downloaded. Shouldn't there be more files or a ZIP file?
1.2. I copied the databases to my memory card but I get an error telling me it can't find the Bible database?
1.3. I use MemPlug on a Visor and it doesn't work right.
1.4. Why doesn't BibleThumper work on my IPaq, Jornada, etc?
2. Resource Databases
2.1. Where can I get more databases?
2.2. Will other versions of the Bible be made available besides the King James Version (KJV) ?
2.3. When will commentary "..." be included?
2.4. Can I create my own commentaries, dictionary, etc?
3. General
3.1. When will feature "..." be included? or Why doesn't BibleThumper do this?

1. Installation

1.1. After I order I only get one file that is very small compared to the ZIP file I downloaded. Shouldn't there be more files or a ZIP file?

The difference between the unregistered version and registered version is in the application itself. This is the small file you received after ordering. The other files are databases for the Bible, concordance ( search index), dictionary, etc. These are the same for both versions. You only need to install the registered application, it should automatically replace the unregistered version.

1.2. I copied the databases to my memory card but I get an error telling me it can't find the Bible database?

Make sure you installed either "KJV with Strong's Numbers.pdb" or "KJV without Strong's Numbers.pdb" databases. You don't need to use the same filenames when storing on the handheld. Also make sure you put the databases in the root of the memory card, or in one of the following directories:

  • /Bible

  • /BibleThumper

  • /PALM/Bible

  • /PALM/BibleThumper

  • /PALM/Launcher/Bible

  • /PALM/Launcher/BibleThumper

If you have done these then check with your hardware manufacturer that your handheld and memory card supports the VFS Manager feature. The VFS Manager is a standard feature on PalmOS 4.0, it may be added as an extension to older versions by vendors.

1.3. I use MemPlug on a Visor and it doesn't work right.

First of all, do not use PiDirect. This configuration is not supported since the MemPlug web page states that only read-only applications should be used with PiDirect. BibleThumper is not a read-only application. If you are using the VFSMgr application, it is beta as of this writing. Please check with MemPlug tech support on the status of VFSMgr.

1.4. Why doesn't BibleThumper work on my IPaq, Jornada, etc?

Not all handhelds are equal! Some use Windows CE, this is a PalmOS application. It will not work on a Windows CE handheld, unless someone writes some sort of emulation program.

2. Resource Databases

2.1. Where can I get more databases?

Many databases are available at the the web site. See the download section. Any or all of these databases may be added to BibleThumper at any time.

2.2. Will other versions of the Bible be made available besides the King James Version (KJV) ?

Not other English versions, by conviction. Instead of giving a lengthy dissertion here about my beliefs on this issue I will point the reader to the King James Bible Page. I am not simply echoing another's beliefs here but this page has all my convictions detailed very well and I've yet to find something I disagree with, although there may be.

I am willing to provide the Word of God for other languages. My convictions will still hold for other languages as they do for English. (Please note: I had previously said "no" to all other versions, that was in the context of English and I apologize for not being more clear in my previous statement.) For example, the "biggy" is that the Bible must be translated from the Textus Receiptus (Received Text) and the Masoretic Text. I will also consult other men of God I believe to be sound in doctrine and knowledgable in the particular language.

2.3. When will commentary "..." be included?

If you know of a commentary (or dictionary, lexicon, etc.) that is in electronic format and in the public domain, let me know. I'm open to include it. Please don't ask me to include commentaries that aren't already in electronic format, it's a lot of work to type a fifteen volume set in and verify correctness. Also do not ask me to include works that require a royalty fee. I do not wish to spend time charging you for that and doing the paper work required to get the royalty back to the owner.

2.4. Can I create my own commentaries, dictionary, etc?

Not at this time. I have in my plans to create an application to convert "markup files" into the database format BibleThumper requires. Markup files means a text file with HTML-like (actually SGML-like) tags to indicate which verse the note is for, etc. The application will be a Java application so it will run on nearly every OS including Unix, Windows, and Macintosh.

3. General

3.1. When will feature "..." be included? or Why doesn't BibleThumper do this?

I'm also open to suggestions at double@inebraska.com. Please first check the Release Plan page to see if I've already got the feature scheduled. Otherwise ask send me an email and I'll look over your suggestion.


Chapter 11. Support

Support for ordering (such as credit card issues) and obtaining registered versions is handled by the company you purchased your license of BibleThumper from. Please check your order confirmation email, receipt or the distributor's sales web site for contact information.
