Utley - You Can Understand the Bible: Study Guide Commentary

Post by jwols »

Hi there,

There is a commentary available for theWord from Bob Utley.
The version for theWord is not complete, it misses some Old Testament books. I think its from about 2014.
The website of Bob Utley contains now more books than in this commentary:
http://www.freebiblecommentary.org/old_ ... taries.htm

On thewordmodules.com I tried to contact Josh Bond, but with no succes.

The module contains these 3 co-workers: Josh Bond, Costas Stergiou, Mike Miga
Costas is there a way to update this module?

We have been working on various modules for theWord. Please understand that it takes time and resources to develop even "Free to You" modules. If you could perhaps point out the specific areas that need updated that would be helpful.
What are your thoughts on this JG ?

Hi Jonathan,

This is the link I found the Module en it's also on theword.net.
http://www.wordmodules.com/the-word-mod ... t-23-vols/

Old Testament: Available Books (written by Dr. Utley)
Genesis
Deuteronomy
Joshua
Ezra
Nehemiah
Esther
Psalms
Ecclesiastes
Song of Songs
Isaiah
Jeremiah
Ezekiel
Daniel
Hosea
Joel
Amos
Obadiah
Jonah
Micah
Haggai
Zechariah
Malachi

theWord Version
Many attempts have been made over the years to create modules from Dr. Utley's content. Most are rough copy and paste modules, resulting in a format not easy to use.

This module is different because 1) We used the XML data provided by Dr. Utley's technical team and 2) We re-created the layout, line spacing, indentions, and paragraph formatting found in Dr. Utley's commercial text as sold elsewhere.

Perhaps contacting Utley's team is the fastest way.

It sounds like it may be best to reach out to Josh Bond, if you can't get a hold of him, you may try in the Esword side of the wordmodules.com and see if you can get a hold of him.
[Edit. . .] Like you said hard to reach Josh. Hmms hard to know what to do since getting a hold of that data may take a bit. Would you be interested in asking for like the xml files or something like that from the website?

I am copying the missing Biblebooks from the website of Bob Utley and make a commentary of it while reading the bible.
Making a module from a xml is much easier :D

Were you able to get a hold of the xml? I would use a programming language to convert the xml.
