The Illustrated Holy Bible The Illustrated Holy Bible on CD rom. This application was originally by written myself for Cumana to bundle with A5000 computers to schools. A number of people still find it useful, even on much more modern systems, so I updated it to work with newer font managers and RISC OS 4/5, including Select.

King James Edition data

For those of you who don't have the original CD Rom (which I believe is no longer available, even from thee who hath it in stock), you can download the full data for the King James Edition, complete with illustrations. This is 5MB long as a ZIP file and extracts to approx 10.6MB.

Download: [5M], downloaded 429 times.

To install, create a directory on your hard drive called data and extract ALL the files from within the archive into this new directory. Then edit the !Bible.Config file and look for the line starting datapath=
Amend the filepath on this line to point to the full filepath of wherever you just installed the data directory. Save the file and you should now be able to run !Bible without requiring the original CD Rom. (see screenshot below)

Main features


- Showing installation location and 'config' file, pointing to datapath.

More Multi-Media

If you find !Bible useful, you may be interested in The Illustrated Works of Shakespeare or Sherlock Holmes, which are also available as RISC OS multi-media applications.


v1.25 (6th Oct 2007)

v1.24 (4th Jul 2006)




Although powerful in it's day, it never really got updated inline with developments in the RISC OS world - until now that is.
I have now revamped the entire application and tested it with RISC OS 4, fixing a number of bugs in the process. This version fixes the 'not enough space for fonts' bug as well as incorporating some new features not in the original.
