The Lion Electronic Library is drawn from several publications, and includes the following sections which are hotlinked to each other:-

  • Guide: commentary on every passage of the Bible
  • Message: highlights the most common Bible passages and provides further insight; suitable as a basis for Group Discussion work
  • Dictionary: quick access to articles on people, places, teaching and church matters
  • Faith: background information on the Christian faith
  • Theology: overview of the main tenets of belief in God
  • Background: enyclopedia style information on the history, geography and politics of Bible times
  • About: overview of Bible style and translations

The module contains a short manual with guidelines on how to find particular types of information.

Maps and graphics are in bit-mapped format (sprites) and photographs in JPEG format. You will require access to ChangeFSI or a similar utility to display the photos in RISCOS 3.1 or 3.5.
