6: CROSS
file resources

These
resources are listed because some packages by the same company are
STEP
compatible. By listing the CROSS
compatible resources, one can avoid a very expensive
disappointment31.

26In
February 2008, I purchased a new copy of this (STEP)
version of the LASB
from the local LifeWay
Christian Book Store
. (ISBN 0-8423-7397-7 SKU
0842373977 / 001212916). These STEP
files are password protected, and can not be opened in e Sword.

27There
are plans to release this product inCROSSformat.

28Some
items listed here may not be part of the WordSearch
5.0
Package.

29http://www.christianbook.com/
or 1-800-247-4784. Note: I am not affiliated with them, just
impressed by their low prices.

30The
person who uploaded them did not realize that they were under
copyright, and hence not redistributable.

31The
disappointment is in expecting them to be STEP
compatible, and thus usable by e Sword
, when they are not.

32Bible
Explorer: The Message study Package
is CROSScompatible, not STEP
compatible.

on e-Sword
