About BibleCrawler

BibleCrawler enables sophisticated searching techniques on biblical texts.  BibleCrawler was developed by Michael Stead, arising from his doctoral research on the Hebrew Bible.  Finding that mainstream programs couldn't do the kind of searching he needed, he wrote his own search engine.

About the BibleCrawler Software
BibleCrawler is written in C# using the .NET 2.0 framework. It is open source and open standard.  It allows access to data in a variety of SQL databases.  It is user-configurable - users can add new databases and on-screen layouts without any programming knowledge.
