I ran the Berean Study Bible USFM from here:

https://berean.bible/downloads.htm

through BibleMultiConverter to produce a Logos Personal Book:

5280.bsb.docx

The Berean Study Bible has a very permissive license, so there shouldn't be any copyright issues posting this Personal Book here (I also filled out the licensing form provided here: https://berean.bible/licensing.htm before posting here).

I didn't do an exhaustive check to make sure BibleMultiConverter did the export correctly, but I didn't see any issues in my spot check.

Thanks Kevin. I hope it compiles correctly. Did it work for you?

The build failed for me with 1 warning and 2 errors.

Can you post what the errors are? I was able to successfully build this book, so the error messages will be helpful to debug the issue. Thanks

Sorry it takes me a while to reply, all my posts are marked as spam for some reason, so they are reviewed before being posted. I'm not sure why...

I don't know what made the difference, but this time the book was built correctly. 

So, if you have a problem for some reason the first time you try to build this book, then try it again. 

N.B. Mick thank you for your offer of help. I appreciate it.

Thank you very much for doing this. The BSB is a fine translation.

However, I noticed verse 1 of several Psalms is missing. I checked the Docx to confirm.

Yes, I was made aware of this recently on the github page where I posted this file as well. Unfortunately, the automatic conversion script I used appears to have not liked the formatting of the BSB input files I used.

I'm afraid I don't have the time to look into the issue right now, with the health issues my daughter is dealing with, but I'd love if someone else could take over this file and fix some of the issues!

I went to that page but downloaded the Word option. It compiled successfully the first time. I did not put in the milestones, however. And I see that the text may be pulling in from online sources so this may not be a relevant test.

I noticed that some other Bible software companies have official versions of the Berean Study Bible. I wonder if Faithlife is / will be developing one?

I'm hoping they will have an official version sooner or later!

In the meantime, I started writing a python script to convert the .usfm files from the BSB website into html for import into Logos. I'm about half done, and working on it about 15-30 minutes a day, should finish in about a week or so.

Once I'm finished, it'll have footnotes, poetry formatting, list formatting, etc. I'm also cleaning up the headers and such, compared to the file I posted previously. And it shouldn't be missing those Psalms verses Smile 

I'm writing the script to fail and quit on any unexpected errors, so I'm doing all I can to not silently omit or insert errors in the final book, and am checking things as much as possible as I go.

If Logos doesn't put out an official version before I'm done, I'll post it here.

I'm sure many people would love a usfm to html for logos script! Please share that too.
