Hi everyone,

after months of quietness, we have had  another week of very interesting contributions to the Exchange.

 

 

Jack Gilbert has contributed a module that combines sermons and blog posts from desiringgod.org on Sexual Sin and Sexual Purity.

 
Greg Terry has updated a new batch of public domain texts converted into Accordance modules.
 
  • The 1979 "Book of Common Prayer" of the Episcopal Church if the USA.
  • "Sermons to the Natural Man" by William Shedd, a 19th century New England Presbyterian. This work is the counterpoint to his "Sermons to the Spiritual Man".
  • "Apology of the Church of England" by John Jewel from Project Gutenberg.
  • "The Ten Commandments" was originally part of the "Body of Divinity" also by Thomas Watson. 
  • "Altogether Lovely" by John Flavel, the 17th century Presbyterian minister.
  • "The Rent Veil" by Horatius Bonar, the 19th century Free Church of Scotland minister.
  • Andrewes  Devotions - a module with the private prayers of Bishop Lancelot Andrewes that have been translated from Greek, Hebrew, and Latin and adapted for general public use. Andrewes was one of the bishops who supervised the translation of the Authoised Version (often called the King James Version) of the Bible.
 
Luis Zaldana has uploaded his workspaces, the Passage Guide, Exegetical Guide and  Word Study Guide which are  collection of workspaces designed to facilitate the study of biblical texts
 
And lastly, Daniel Semler has updated his excellent Applescript app to  to generate Greek flashcard data for importing into flashcard applications. This one is for Mac's only, but rumour has it that he is working on a similar process to use in LibreOffice that will be cross platform.
 
Enjoy and keep contributing!

And one more just to round it off also from Greg Terry...

 

  • "The Lord's Prayer" was originally part of the "Body of Divinity" also by Thomas Watson. A companion essay to the "The Ten Commandments".

It has raised the issue that files uploaded to the server with an inverted comma can't then be accessed by me without a lot of problem. I will amend the upload instructions to reflect this.

Hi Ken,

 

  The LibreOffice spreadsheet approach is working. I am working on packaging and more testing. I can create Flashcards from both Windows and Mac and I can use either Analysis data or Parsing data as the source. It has got a few more manual steps than the Applescript method, but its more general and its multi-platform so long as you are prepared to use LibreOffice. Hopefully I can finish it up when I return from vacation.

 

Thx

D

How does one go about creating the flashcards? What kind of program(s) do you suggest one look at?  Having chosen a program, what steps do you go through to create them (I understand it is program specific, but pick one as an example). Do you go the manual route: buy a bunch of index cards and markers?
