This includes over 4,700 web pages (approximately equal to 10 books of 3,000 pages each). All of these Bible Study Tools web pages are linked together so that you can browse through them and use them on your own computer using your favorite web browser. Best of all, this is FREE. We are providing this as a free service to the Christian community and to anyone else who has a sincere desire to learn more about our wonderful God and Saviour - The Lord Jesus Christ - and His will and desire for our lives.
What is not included in the Bible Study Tools?:
None of the other Bible Study Tools are included in the download. This is due to the fact that they are not the type of programs that can by used on personal computers.
Requirements:As far as we know this only works with Windows Operating Systems ( Windows 95 / 98 / 2000 / ME / NT / and so on ). This is due to the fact that some of the web pages use long filenames. We don't know if it will work with other 32bit operating systems.
You will need 60 MB of free space for these resources, along with additional temporary space for the installation and 21 MB for the 5 zipfiles. So, if you don't have at least 110 MB of free space on your computer, you should not download these 5 zipfiles.
You will need a browser to view the Bible Study Tools since they are in the form of web pages. Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape browsers are preferable.
Some of the pages are fairly large. You may need a Pentium class computer or displaying pages may get very slow.
Files have been tested and are good:
We have repeatedly tested these 5 zipfiles and we can assure you that they are good. If you have problems, it is not the zipfiles.
Almost all links are local:
Except for the search.html page, and two links on the about.html page, all of the links within the Bible Study Tools are local. This means that you can use the links on the various pages to navigate between resources without having to connect to the internet.
Download Information:To download the 5 zipfiles, (1) simply log in and then (2) click each of the 5 links and (3) save the files to your computer. Be sure that you save all 5 zipfiles to the same location (directory).
The 5 zipfiles were each created with WinZip for MicroSoft Windows, so you may need the same in order to unzip them. Simply use WinZip to open each of the 5 zipfiles and then unzip them to the location that you choose.
Each zipfile unzips independently of the others, so, if for some reason one of the zipfiles gets corrupted during the download, you will only need to download that one zipfile again.
It is very important that you unzip them all to the same directory. You will have to choose the drive, such as C:\ or D:\ . The Bible Study Tools are already setup to unzip to the directory bible_study_tools and it sub-directories with each zipfile placing the files it contains in the appropriate sub-directories. If you change the unzip location and if by some chance you don't unzip them all into the same directory, then you will most definitely have problems.
Because the Bible Study Tools contain many internal local links, you will need all 5 zipfiles. If you don't download and unzip all 5 zipfiles, then when you start clicking links to navigate between the Bible Study resources on your computer, you will end up with a lot of "file not found" errors.
It will take about 30 minutes to download all 5 of the zipfiles with a good 128k connection.
It will take about 1 hour to download all 5 of the zipfiles with a good 56k connection.
It will take about 1 hour and 45 minutes to download all 5 of the zipfiles with a good 33.6k connection.
It can take considerably longer if you don't have a good connection.
