Welcome to our new e-Sword module library website. We would like to invite you to look around, and download what you like. We are presenting you this library website of e-Sword modules. Some 4 years ago I switched over the much better program, TheWord, which is much more feature rich, has a user forum where the developer (Costas Stergiou) quickly answers emails and posts, and also resolves issues more quickly than I found was the case with e-sword.
I have worked exclusively in TheWord program formats, but since we can import most e-Sword modules, we look for e-Sword modules on the Internet and then important them into theWord, clean them up, and post them on twmodules.com, my theWord module library website.
We are powered by your prayers and donations.
As I mentioned above, I don’t like e-Sword any more. I think theWord is a much more excellent, feature rich, and more powerful program than e-Sword. I know e-Sword has probably 10 times the user base as theWord, and I am making my e-Sword available to you (which is additional work on me) as a service to you, the e-Sword user. Please consider sending us a small donation every 6 months or so. Invite me and my family out to eat (or the equivalent, about $25 dollars) once every 6 months or so. If you can send more, please do so. I am powered to make and post e-Sword modules by YOUR DONATIONS! Since I don’t use e-Sword anymore, there is little interest or advantage for me to even have this website. Since I am doing this as a favor to you, please go to the Paypal link (on the right sidebar) or if you would like to write a check in dollars to our home church (we are local church missionaries, doing evangelism and church planting in Mexico City since 1986) then visit our donations page.
There are no more pending posts to be upload in the next few days....
Our purpose is to serve the people of God, and that being the case, and the fact that I have a large e-Sword depository of modules and files on my hard drive, I decided to make this website for you to download these modules. I gave copies of these files to www.e-swordmoduleusers.org group, but it appears that their website is permanmently down.
My secondary purpose is to introduce you to the benefits and features of TheWord versus e-Sword. Having used both for a good while, the decision to migrate from e-Sword to TheWord is a no-brainer. TheWord is just so much better than e-Sword that it doesn’t take much consideration to switch.
Advantages of theWord over E-Sword
Throughout this website, we will be placing feature comparisons of the two programs side-by-side. As I mentioned above, my purpose is to acquaint you with the advantages of TheWord over e-Sword. Although we do not charge for downloading modules from either program, please take note that this (e-Sword) is not our program of choice, and all we ask for downloading these modules is to simply look at and read these feature comparisons “ads”.
- TheWord has the ability to view graphic images in any module except the Bible. Module creators can now place a graphic in their modules instead of having to make a special module (an e-Sword graphics module).
- TheWord has the ability to link to any other place in any other module or within the same module, or within the same page/topic if desired. This is true hyperlinking, which opens the entire module library to be accessible without having to “mouse around” to find the place.
- TheWord has the built-in function that allows links to other modules to show up in a tooltip when you mouse over the hyperlink. This allows the user to read the snippet of text from another place without having to actually go there and loose his place in the current module. If he wishes to read the entire context someplace else, that is fine, and clicking on the back arrow, he will return to his place.

Availability of new books for e-Sword and theWord
Please note that I am not developing modules for e-Sword any more. Others are, so ask them to convert TheWord modules into e-Sword. TheWord has much more variety and number of modules or books in that format. I found the the lack of technical support in the e-Sword environment one which put me between e-Sword’s users and the wall, because they found that e-mails to me were
answered more promptly than e-mails to e-sword.net. I could not solve all the problems, and as time went on, I found a much better free Bible program, theWord, and I decided to switch to this more powerful and feature rich program.
My efforts and talents are now behind theWord. I greatly appreciate Costas, and I think both he, his attitude, and his program are excellent, greatly pleasing to the Lord. Because of this, we work in theWord.
Because of all of this, I am limiting contribution to the e-Sword community to just posting existing modules which I have, or which I find in building up theWord community (looking for them for conversion purposes). If you have e-Sword modules that you wish to contribute to the website, please write me, and depending on how big your library is, I will give you instructions in how to send me the modules, and those that I feel are in the public domain or possible to upload here without copyright infringement, I will upload.
