My name is Chris Krycho; I’m the guy responsible for the development work on HolyBible.com, as well as a full-time seminary student at SEBTS, a husband and dad, and a software developer.
I know a lot of people have been eagerly expecting the study Bible notes that come with the Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible, and I’m excited to be able to tell you that they really are coming soon.
I also know the website has said that—a lot! This project has taken me longer than I expected in a number of different areas. We really are getting close to the end of this particular journey, though.
If you have an access code, you can sign in and redeem it today, and when you click Read or choose a passage after that, you’ll see some of the study notes material in the text (for example, at Genesis 1:1, you’ll see a link to the article “Creation and God’s Glory” if you’re a registered user and have redeemed a code).
On my own development machine, there’s a lot more visible: just today, I got the inline text notes integrated. They’re not up on the public site just yet because I have a few more tweaks to make so that the experience of reading them is solid, but in a few weeks, they’ll be up and ready for you to use.
I’m sorry it’s taken so long for some of these things to get to you! At each step along the way, though, I am trying to make sure that these things work well—whether that’s making sure your email and password are handled securely so that no one could steal them even if they hacked into the server that runs the site, or just trying to make sure that the notes work properly when you use them, or any number of other little details. It’s taking a little while, but my goal is that once I roll something out, it works right.
And of course, there are still some bugs to iron out! Once I get the notes out the door, I am looking forward to just tightening up a lot of those things and fixing every single bug or quirk I know about.
Thanks for being patient! I’m as excited as you are to get this out the door, and we really are getting close. You can find me at my website, and I’m @chriskrycho on Twitter.
