Here’s the announcement of Bibleworks 7. I’ll probably be ordering the update. I am, however, interested in what others think of the “unlocks.”
Zerwick –> always handy
Blass, Debrunner, and Funk –> likewise, when you’re not in a library
Critical appartus stuff –> probably a good idea, at some point
But how about Comfort & Barrett? Or Balz & Schneider?
AD FROM BIBLEWORKS FOLLOWS.
We are pleased to unveil BibleWorks(TM) 7, our most resource-rich and
instruction-oriented software package ever. With over 110 Bible
translations in 32 languages, BibleWorks continues to add to the
multitude of lexicons, grammar resources and tools that serious Bible
study requires. The newly-integrated Study Guides with detailed
“how-to” videos make BibleWorks 7 an especially practical program.
When it comes to Biblical exegesis, BibleWorks remains one of the most
powerful, quick, and user-friendly software programs for Windows.
Seminary students, professors, pastors, and missionaries doing close
study of the original Greek and Hebrew text of the Bible will find
their work to be even more productive.
