Workman’s Study Bible Reviewed

There is now a new section available for reviewing shareware Bible programs. The first review I have posted deals with a little known gem: Workman’s Study Bible.

Logos for Mac: First Impressions

While attending ETS — that is, the 60th Annual Meeting of the Evangelical Theological Society held last week in Providence, Rhode Island –, Rod Decker got hold of the Logos for Mac DVD (Scholar’s Gold edition).

Preview of BibleWorks 8

Michael Hanel is posting a series of articles on the (unofficial) BibleWorks Blog about some of the new features available in BW8, which is going to ship in mid-to-late December.

These are the first, second, third, fourth , fifth, sixth, and seventh installments in the series. More will follow in the coming days, so if you want to be in the loop, you may want to check it out.


Review of Bible Analyzer 3.5

I have just posted a new review of Bible Analyzer 3.5, a great freeware application for Windows and Linux users. It is a program I enjoy using, and it has great potential. I hope Tim Morton continues to improve it.

If you like it, please consider ordering the CD-ROM at the dirt-cheap price of $18 + $3 shipping.
