I’ve kindly been afforded the opportunity to review BibleWorks 9. I confess I’ve never been entirely thrilled about Bible software but agreed to this opportunity because it would give me the opportunity to see if my initial concerns were warranted. I gather that I’m not alone in this matter, but I’ve always been hesitant to use Bible software because I didn’t want it to become a crutch. In undergrad and seminary, the students who used it all the time tended not to be the best at the languages. Thus, I’ve never had BibleWorks or Logos on a personal computer until now!
I’ve got BibleWorks 9 loaded now, though, and I’m looking forward to becoming more acquainted with it. When it opens up, there’s a nice set of tutorials that I’ll no doubt use. I’m anxious to see what non-biblical primary texts they have. I’ll report back soon, just in case any of the rest of you are as behind the time technologically as I am.
