There are four program products which you can download from this site. There are two programs for Roget's Thesaurus of the Bible, one to display versions of the thesaurus intertactively, and a second to enable you tailor a thesaurus to fit your needs. In addition, there is Roget's Thesaurus of Quotations, a program to which you may add whatever quotations you like. The fourth is Syntagma, a program to discover word classes and structures from input text. You can download an installation file. When you double-click on it, the appropriate program will be installed.


Please read my disclaimer before downloading any of the programs available from this web site.

When the files have been unzipped, the program may be started by double-clicking on the .exe file (ShowBibThs.exe or MakeBibThs.exe). You may want to put shortcuts to these programs on your desktop. The programs should run on both 32-bit and 64-bit PCs. Please tell me if there are problems

Show Bible Thesaurus

This will display either the Concise or the Full thesaurus.


Make Bible Thesaurus

This comes with instructions to enable you to construct your own thesaurus which may be displayed by the former program.


The Concise and Full versions of the Thesaurus are available in book form from booksellers.

In addition, Getting it Straight from the Bible is a book also available from booksellers, presenting the main themes which have been found during work compiling the Thesaurus, with applications for today. The matters covered include the inspiration of the Bible, how to interpret it, the law, the Jews, the promised land, money, the sabbath, the Bible and science, the last things and the church. The conclusions reached are often are variance with what may be currently taught, but they are based on the 30 years spent going through and through the Bible and seeking to represent its teachings fairly and without prejudice.

Google Chrome (wrongly) may suggest the download may be dangerous. Right-click and choose 'Keep'. You may be told that you need Adminstrator status. In that case, use a browser (such as Internet Explorer) which allows you to Save the file (rather than Run). When the file is transferred to your PC, right-click on the name of the file and choose 'Run as administrator'. (This program will only run on a 32-bit computer.)
