A Collection of Clippings – II

Published: September 15th, 2008

Mark Vitalis Hoffman has some posts I would recommend, one on What’s the point of Bible software? and the other one offering a list of Greek Legacy Fonts to Unicode Converters. His blog on Biblical Studies and Technological Tools is always worth checking out, and you may want to consider adding it to the blog reader of your choice if you haven’t done so yet.

On the whole issue of Unicode fonts and its relevance to biblical studies, I recommend the following posts: Joe Weaks’ s Unicode: A Bible Scholar’s Introduction, Rodney Decker’s Biblical Language Fonts and Unicode,  Unicode Fonts Unite Biblical Studies — with a full description written by David Instone-Brewer on how to install the Tyndale Unicode Font Kit (Windows-only) –,  and, if you are a Mac user, Unicode Tutorial by Danny Zacharias.

Upcoming software editions of the soon-to-be-released ESV Study Bible and NLT Study Bible will hit the streets before the end of the year (hopefully!). In the meantime, here is a table that shows and compares, at a glance, the names of the different contributors that have been working on each of the books of the Bible. The chart also includes contributors to the already available NIV Study Bible.

Over at the Logos Blog, Phil Gons writes about PBB, or Not PBB: That Is the Question, in which he discusses the advantages of a Logos edition of any given public domain work over the edition of that same title with the Personal Book Builder. This is prompted by the larger issue of what PBB should be used for. It’s an interesting piece.

    On the Unicode question, you may want to check out a series of posts I did on setting up a Unicode Greek Keyboard and a review of open-source unicode fonts. Links below:
