Fine Tuning TW To Get The Most Out of Your Quiet Time

DDT Modules Now Formatted

For MySword App for Android

Many of our DDT users are serious students of the Bible. We do our Bible study sitting in front of a large computer screen, with a mouse and keyboard at our fingertips. Why? We’re studying to make notes so that we can then use our studies to teach others also.


But as technology continues to advance, some of us are also using Bible apps on our phones. Maybe we’re not performing serious Bible studies with them; but we’re using those 5-15 minute intervals that used to be wasted while we waited for someone to serve us (doctor, mechanic, waitress, etc.) to do some free reading.


And now, I’m joining that group!


Starting October 28, I am going to post all of my modules not only for eSword and theWord, but also for MySword. I am also going to start working backward and convert many of my “classic” DDT modules for MySword use.


I’m not sure what the final format of my MySword page is going to be; but for now, you can start visiting it regularly (daily?) to download modules for your MySword library.

Prayer List for theWord Bible Software

New Unofficial Module Type

Many of us don’t just use our Bible software educationally nor exegetically; we also use our Bible software experientially. And that requires, among other niceities, a prayer list.


Unfortunately, TW does not integrate any kind of official prayer list module. Fortunately, TW is easily customizable and the user can create his own.


I’m sure that many TWers have created their own simple prayer lists. It isn’t difficult to do. But for those who haven’t done so yet, let me give you what I’ve developed. It’s an unofficial “My Prayer-list” module built as a general book (.gbk.twm) TW file.

TW’s ability to help you meditate on God’s Word has just increased with the release of my unofficial “My Memory-verses” module.


The “My Memory-verses” module is built on a platform similar to the “My Prayer-list” module. There are 40 separate verse lists completely integrated with hyperlinks. This allows the user to work on: 1) daily verses; 2) weekly verses for every day of the week; 3) monthly verses for every day of the month; and 4) verses for quarterly review once “memorized.” Quarterly verses may be categorized or homogenized (all listed together), or reviewed in some combination of both.


You can easily promote verses from one list to another as you learn; and demote verses back if you forget. This is a great tool to integrate Bible memory into your daily devotional life.

Memory Verse Module for theWord Bible Software

New Unofficial Module Type

There are a lot of different phrases people use to describe their quiet time with God (and that was one of them - “Quiet Time”). My favorite phrase is simply “Personal Devotions.” No matter what you call it, this blog is about fine tuning theWord to get the most out of your quiet time with God.


The Elements of Personal Devotions


In another blog, I’ve written about the elements of personal devotions. I will not rewrite here what I’ve already written there. I will, though, list the typical (and important!) ingredients of what I consider a successful devotional life. The core of personal worship revolves around these disciplines:

2013 BIG Ten

Module Releases

Every day through the end of 2013, I will update this blog, counting down to my #1 favorite module built (or reformatted) and released in 2013. I hope you’ll come back every day to see what’s next!


Last year I started a DDT tradition of listing my favorite new modules for the year. They’re not necessarily the largest in content; nor the most conservative; nor even the most useful (although “useful” gets big points in my scientific polling...). These modules are simply my favorite ones from this year. Here are my criteria:

Personal Devotions

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope all in our DDT family have had a great holiday season. I also hope you’ll have a terrifically blessed 2014. And the single best thing you can do to work toward that end is to bolster your devotional life.


Both eSword and theWord have great devotional tools to help you computerize your spiritual life (yes, that can be successfully done!). I have written two blogs about using eSword and theWord for your daily devotional worship. I’d like to recommend that you give them a read - even if you’ve already done so in the past.


eSword readers should check out this blog post.


TheWord users should check out this blog post.


The Church is in great need of revIval. The answer to revIval can be found right in the midst of revIval - “I.” Every one of us is the “I” that stands in need of revIval. A deeper devotional life is an important part of rekindling the embers of a fervent spirit. And both eSword and theWord can play pivotal roles in that.


May God grant America one more revIval prior to that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! Amen.

Accelerating the eSword Experience

Returning eSword to its Four-Minute Mile Productivity


Over time, things which were fast slow down. The first man credited with running a four-minute mile was an Englishman named Roger Bannister. He achieved this feat with a time of 3:59.4 - six tenths of a second less than four minutes. I don’t know if he was given any fancy nicknames like “Tail Wind Turner” or “Combustible Huxtable” (if you’ve never watched the sitcom called “The Cosby Show,” forget it), but that was fast. It still is; not world-record-fast any more, but still the measure by which runners are scored: “Can you run a four-minute mile?”


I’m quite sure that Sir Roger Bannister can’t run a four-minute mile any longer; you see, he’s almost 85 years old. And this I know: over time, things which were fast slow down.


And that brings me to eSword. When you first installed eSword, it was quick; it was responsive; it ran the computer version of the four-minute mile. But over time; well, you know what happens. Over time, things which were fast slow down. It happened to your eSword experience, too.


While Sir Roger  can’t turn back the ravages of old age, there are some things that you can do to “turn back the clock” on your eSword speed & performance. It can run its four-minute mile again.

The Missing Jewel in the Crown Jewel of Theology

One of my favorite theological writers is Henry Thiessen. His Lectures in Systematic Theology was one of my texts in grad school; and it was a thoroughly enjoyable read. Right at the beginning of the text, he writes this:


For generations theology has been considered the queen of the sciences and systematic theology the crown of the queen. Theology itself is the science of God and his works and systematic theology is the systematizing of the findings of that science.


Or, if I might rephrase: The established doctrines of Systematic Theology are the crown jewels of all of the scientific disciplines. Those established doctrines are typically broken into 9 doctrines (sometimes 10 or 11, depending on how the major doctrines are categorized). They are:
