Last week I posted the first review about the software BibleWorks 10. It was an introductory entry showing the two main windows this amazing software presents. Today, I would like to dig out into the analysis window and the features and resources it offers for sermon preparation, Bible study, and exegesis.
One of the most noticeable resources you can find on the analysis window is the “Resources” tab. This tab is at the same time divided into five different tabs: Summary, Lexicons, Grammars, References, and Options. The main tab among these five tabs is the Summary tab (see picture 1). This tab shows all the lexicons, grammars, and references available for the passage you are studying. You can select or deselect resources from the other tabs (see pictures 2, 3, and 4). In other words, the summary tab shows the resources you have chosen to see among lexicons, grammars, and references. Some of the lexicons this tab offers are Friberg Analytical Lexicon, Moulton-Milligan Vocabulary of the Greek New Testament, or the Louw-Nida Greek-English Lexicon. Grammars are available in both Hebrew and Greek languages and include Burton Moods and Tenses of New Testament Greek, Robertson Grammar of the New Testament Greek, and Bible Works Greek Paradigms, just to mention few.
The summary tab also offers the option of expanding the resources it shows by opening a secondary window. You just need to click on top of the resource and it will expand to facilitate reading and deepening into it.
I can certainly say pastors and Bible students will spend most of their time on this tab since it contains the most useful resources for sermon preparation and Bible study.
I would like to highlight that all the lexicons, grammars, and other resources this tab contains are expensive resources whose starting price is close to $50 each one. Considering that this single tab contains fifty different resources, how much it would cost you to buy them separately as physical books? Exactly: $2,500. Compare to $389.00 this software would cost you. That says it all.
If you wife is having a headache trying to find the perfect Christmas present for your, here it is. Or if you would like to buy BibleWorks 10 by yourself, you can buy it here
