I'd suggest starting w/ a basic, minimal document which you know  
works, something like:

\setromanfont{Palatino Linotype}%This has been included since Windows  
% however, the Win2000 version works, while the WinXP version doesn't
% comment out the above line unless XeTeX's underlying libraries have

% Perhaps \setromanfont{Times New Roman} would be more reliable?
This is a test of XeTeX using Prof.~Hermann Zapf's Palatino Linotype.

If this works, then you can probably trace it down to some aspect of  
font usage or file inclusion in your TeX file.

At a guess from the filename it's a Biblical text? How's it marked  
up? Using what fonts?
