New Module - Deissmann’s Bible StudiesWritten by Michael Hanel on October 26th, 2011
As I continue cleaning out files that I’ve had around but don’t have enough time to perfect, I am now releasing a CHM module that contains Adolf Deissmann’s famous book Bible Studies. Deissmann, of course, is famous in being part of the “new era” of New Testament Greek study which drew upon discoveries of papyri and inscriptions in order to better understand New Testament Greek in light of the overall historical and cultural landscape of the Greek language.
Although it may not be as useful as other grammars in BibleWorks because it lacks Scripture tagging, I’m sure you’ll still find it useful in your study of the Greek New Testament.
This text was digitized by Ted Hildebrandt in 2006 and is used by his gracious permission. I have simply converted it into a form BibleWorks can use.
The main downside to the text is that I have not attempted to do Scriptural tagging and the font used is not Greek Unicode but an older font that is provided in the .zip file. For best results, make sure you install the font files on your computer before using the module.
Step 2. Unzip the file into your databases subfolder of BibleWorks
Step 3. Right click on the CHM file (it’ll look like all other HTML help icons), go to Properties and make sure the box for Block is unchecked. (If you’re using Windows 7, the Properties box will be a bit different. Press the button that says Unblock. (see Jim West’s blog).
Step 4. Start up BibleWorks and the module is available either through the Menu system (under Resources) or in the Analysis tabs.
