I am a great fan of BibleWorks. I began using BibleWorks with version 5 and then upgraded to version 7 and enjoyed every moment of it. I have written all my posts for the blog using BibleWorks. I have even written a post on BibleWorks 7. In two other posts, I mentioned how BibleWorks helped me in my research (here and here).
Every quarter I teach my students at Northern Baptist Seminary to use BibleWorks. Every quarter I teach a seminar to entering students on how to succeed in seminary and on how to do research and write better academic papers. One of the components of the seminar is on how to use BibleWorks. Most students are not familiar with BibleWorks, but when they learn how to use it, they are amazed with the amount of information BibleWorks provides and how easy it is to use all the resources available in BibleWorks.
BibleWorks now has come out with BibleWorks 8. I was fortunate to receive a copy of BibleWorks 8 for review. I have taken a seminar on BibleWorks 8 and have been using it now for three months. Next week I will write two posts on BibleWorks 8. In those posts I will introduce the contents of BibleWorks 8 and how to use this new version.
BibleWorks 8 is for scholars, pastors, and anyone who wants to study the Bible, prepare sermons and Bible studies, and do research on biblical themes or any specific topic. One of the students in my Hebrew course is a pastor who uses BibleWorks in his studies and he also is enthusiastic about using BibleWorks.
