RFE: e-Sword 9.x (Bible Reading Plans)

One RFE For Bible Reading Plans.

The ability to create a Bible Reading Plan from within e-Sword for the deuterocanonical books/Apocrypha/ Anagignoskomena.For those that don't know what I am talking about, the followinig books are the ones that I am referring to:

Catholic Deuterocanonical books
This includes the following books:
  • Judith
  • Tobit
  • Wisdom of Solomon
  • Sirach
  • Baruch
  • 1 Maccabees
  • 2 Maccabees
This also includes the following books 1:
  • Prayer of Azariah 2
  • Song of Three Young Men 3
  • Susanna 4
  • Bel and the Dragon 5
  • Greek Esther 6
 
Anglican Deuterocanonical Books
This list also includes the 39 book Old Testament, 27 Book New Testament and the material that is deuterocanonical for Catholic Christianity: 7
  • Prayer of Manassa 8
  • 1 Esdras
  • 2 Esdras
Anagignoskomena
This list also includes the 39 book Old Testament, 27 Book New Testament and the material that is deuterocanonical for Anglicans:
  • 3 Maccabees
  • 4 Maccabees 9
  • Psalm 151 10
1 Some e Sword resources that include this material do so, by inserting it as part of the verse that it precedes, or follows.

2 This book was included within Daniel 3, prior to e-Sword 8.0.

3 This book was included within Daniel 3, prior to e-Sword 8.0.

4 This book was included at the end of Daniel 12, prior to e-Sword 8.0.

5 This book was included at the end of Daniel 12, prior to e-Sword 8.0.

6 This book was intermixed with Esther, prior to e-Sword 8.0.

7 Whilst this list is from The Thirty Nine Articles, ECUSA, and Anglican organizations influenced by American Episcopalians either ignore, or reject this material as canonical.

8 At least one e-Sword Bible resource includes this book within 2 Chronicles.

9 In Orthodox Christianity, 4 Maccabees is usually considered to be “good reading” rather than canonical.

10 This book was included at the end of Psalm 150, prior to e-Sword 8.0.
