Please feel free to share this with colleagues or students who might find it useful.




We have had to withdraw this toolbar because Conduit were installing unwanted programs alongside.
We'll be turning this into a Web Portal instead.

If you'd like to hear about this, we'd love to keep you informed:
We won't misuse this, and we don't make it compulsory because some people need anonymity. :  


Click to install the toolbar for IE or Firefox or Chrome on PC or Firefox or Safari on a Mac. Also works with Flock, but other browsers aren't available yet - sorry. More instructions (including uninstalling) are here. Please untick installation features you don't want - we can't prevent them appearing, as with almost all free software.

This installs a toolbar in your browser which you can disable at any time, though you will probably want the features constantly.

Toolbar Properties & Tyndale House contact

The toolbar updates itself, so there is rarely need to 'upgrade'.

Extra gadgets are available, from ToDo lists to games.

You can turn such features on or off at 'Options'.

If you have too many, you can 'Shrink' the bar by removing labels.

Search & Translation dropdown

Translates ancient & modern languages

Type in transliteration or Unicode,
or copy & paste from elsewhere

For 2LetterLookup, only two letters are needed. You can then pick out the word from a list.

Links to lexicons go to the correct page in scanned full lexicons.

For Perseus, transliteration is in Beta code (ie follow vowels with "(" "/" "=" etc for breathings and accents).

Perseus servers (which are often busy)are automatically tried, one by one, till successful.

If you want to remain on your previous setting, untick "Switch back to default search engine" in "Toolbar Options" - "Additional Settings" (in the Toolbar Properties dropdown - see above)


Search for Theology and Biblical Studies books and articles

Type a word or two from a title, and a surname (if known).

"Articles" searches the periodicals at Tubingen
(which covers almost as many periodicals and festschrifts as ATLA)

The various Book searches find published and out-of-print books.
Online versions are often available at GoogleBooks.

Firefox users may have to OK popups from this toolbar the first time they use this.

Bible Lookup tool

Select the chapter and version for quick lookup.

Hover over the abbreviations for details of the versions.

Double-click to select the same version again.

Where several sources of a version exist, the link goes to the one with the best added features.

For more versions, see the 70+ English translations in the next tool.

If you can't see the Bibles tool on the right, drag the Trans(lation) tool on the left to make it smaller

If you can't see the writing properly, try zooming out.

Note: If you are asked whether you'd like this toolbar to be your default search engine, just untick it.
It isn't anything special but it causes some spyware scans to complain
because it collects the same kind of data that Google collects, then agregates it anonymously.
