Utilitie for handling and normalizing Bible references

Bible Reference Utilities

Utilities for handling Bible references, such as normalizing book names. This project started as a component of the BibViz Project, an interactive visualization of Bible contradictions, violence, and misogyny in the Bible. It was spun off as it might be useful to others.

Install the library via NPM:

npm install bible-ref

Then, once installed you can require and use it:

var bref = require('bible-ref');
console.log(bref.bookNormalize('1CO 1:1-4'));

A list of book names in the Bible, e.g. ['Genesis', 'Exodus', ...].

Normalize the book name in a Bible reference.

>>> '1 Corinthians'
bref.bookNormalize('1CO 2:1')
>>> '1 Corinthians 2:1'
bref.bookNormalize('1 Corinthians 2:1')
>>> '1 Corinthians 2:1'
