Hi there


Is there a way to show the headings in the Bible? For example, in a hard copy ESV, there'll be little subheadings that briefly describe what is in the section. I can't find these in accordance.

the simple answer is no, as they are not part of the Biblical text. This has been asked for previously, but has not been implemented. I have no idea if it on our development priorities at all.


You can approximate it by putting the “outlines of Bible Books” in parallel. But at the moment, that’s the best I can suggest.

Sometimes as in the case of the NIV they appear in the corresponding notes for the Bible.

This is a long-debated topic. I'll restate my opinion: I would like to see them as an option, not a default--something that could be turned on or off like red lettering. Personally, I like the headings because the help to visually break up the text. As it stands now, there's no way to tell from a quick glance where Matthew 28 ends and Mark 1 begins because the text runs together.
