Bible Desktop is a free, cross platform, multi lingual, Bible Study tool that allows you to dig deeply into God's Word.

Software Santa may soon give his first presentation - to a Bible Study Group!

Guess which present he's going to call up first?  ;D   <3   :D

Oh, and this totally works on the Early 2008 Mac Pro ....

Note on Windows Vista/7/8

On Windows Vista, 7 or 8 it may repeatedly ask you permission to run BibleDesktop.
Note on Linux

Bible Desktop runs well using openJDK, available with most recent Linux distributions.

In the past, most distributions of Linux posed a challenge to running Java programs: Most did not come with a version of Java that could run BibleDesktop. If you are running a Linux distribution that does not have openJDK, you will need to obtain and install Oracle's Java before trying to run BibleDesktop.
