More on Bible software
First – Yes, this is still the same Following Christ blog. I thought it was time for a theme change. When things aren’t changing I begin to get confused!
I’ve been spending time getting acquainted with and adding modules to The Word, which I introduced in an article below, and from helpful people at The Word’s forums I have come across a couple of helpful links I’d like to pass along.
For reviews and ratings of many Windows Bible programs, see Jerry Foster’s page. These reviews are done from the point of view of most readers will find most helpful – intelligent but not top-level scholarly. He covers an awful lot of ground, is very perceptive, and his evaluations are spot-on, as far as my own experience with Bible software goes.
I have Logos, and have built my library slowly. But it is so user-unfriendly and handles computer memory so poorly that I am loath to fire it up. I use it when I need to dig deeply and span various resources to do so, because its resource integration is powerful. But for day-to-day study and reading, I’ve actually been using online tools – until I discovered The Word.
At the forum I also came across many more modules for The Word. Go here, and you’ll find a .pdf tutorial and a link to over 600 modules. Or for the modules just go directly here. You actually can add great resources such as Vines and Kittel’s dictionaries, and more. This is going to be a tremendous boon to the bible community.
Hint: click on this blog’s ‘bible software” tag in the sidebar for all articles relating to this program and its modules.
