Unlocking extra copyrighted bible versions

Viewing extra material


In order to unlock the additional copyrighted versions on the Online Bible CD-ROM, first you need to have ordered the unlock codes from us. These cost from £5-£10 each and will be sent to you by email or post. Each licence to use a locked version consists of a User Name and an Access Code.

Apart from the dozens of Bible versions instantly available on the Online Bible, for reasons of copyright, there are also of number of unlockable versions on the CD-Rom. At present these include:

NIV - British NIV NIV - US NIV
NRSV New Revised Standard Version NAS New American Standard Version
NLT New Living Translation LAMSA

Once you have received notice of your unlock code(s) you can click on:

Tools - Activate Locked Material (Utilities - Unlock Versions menu in Online Bible 8 and earlier)

Now choose your version(s).
Enter the User Name given you and the Access Code and click on OK.

 (see pp.96-97 of the Online Bible Manual available on the CD-Rom)


Apart from numerous bibles, dictionaries and commentaries, the Online Bible has an increasing amount of historical and modern theological material. Some is devotional, some apologetic - on archaeology and creationism, for example.

To access this material click on Library - Selection Preferences (F9) and go to the Topics/Books tab. Make sure that the book you wish to view is selected, or click on Select All.

For example, if you wanted to access Spurgeon's lectures on using commentaries in sermons then ensure that the checkbox next to  COMMENTS - Commenting on Commentaries is checked. Click on OK to Exit and save your changes.

Now click on the View Library icon or menu: Library - Library Index. To see the individual book titles you will need to 'expand the tree', in other words, click on the small boxed + sign to the left of each subject area to expand its contents.

Following our previous example, expand the + sign next to + Reference and next to + Helps, double click on …Commenting on Commentaries and a brief overview of the book appears on screen. This screen deceptively hides the hyperlinks to the sections of the book itself. You can now double click on any of the following:
The Pastors College
A Chat about Commentaries
On Commenting
Each full page of these topics are numbered, in this case from 1656 onwards, and you can use your right cursor arrow to move forward a page and the left arrow key to go back a page. Use the up/down arrow keys or your mouse to scroll down the page. Your mouse right click menu will have further options such as Search, Copy, Append to clipboard etc.
