Bible Study Tools Online (and Offline too!)

Turpin Library, Dallas Theological Seminary, has a helpful article on Bible Study Tools Online. The title can be a bit misleading, though. It does review web resources like, Bible Study Tools, Perseus, Blue Letter Bible, The Unbound Bible and Bible Gateway, but it also comments briefly on Logos/Libronix, BibleWorks and Accordance.

Online and offline Bible software serve similar purposes but meet different needs. This is likely to change in the future, as the line between "online" and "offline" becomes increasingly blurred. In the meantime, the classic distinction remains pretty much the same (with some notable exceptions). So, it is good to know what resources are available at any given time, whether it be on the web or on our computers.
