I’m selling one copy of BibleWorks 7 for $150. It’s not mine, but it’s all legit (the seller is buying BW9; he is not selling his old version off after getting the upgrade price).
BW7 was a major advance over BW6. The two upgrades since then include a few nice new features, but nothing most people can’t live without—mostly textual critical stuff. BibleWorks 7 still does extremely well the three things that I think make BibleWorks worth having:
- Fast searching in multiple languages, including morphological and lemma (root-word) searches.
- A notes system even brain-dead people can use.
- The ability to quickly and easily compare multiple translations.*
BibleWorks does all of these things better than Logos does. It’s worth far more than $150.
If you’re interested, please write out a note, address it to me, attach it to a red balloon, and release balloon toward Taylors, SC.
*Logos can, of course, do this, and Logos 4 comes very close to the functionality in BibleWorks. I still like the set-up in BibleWorks a bit better, because it allows me to set version order permanently, and it’s slightly easier to change verses with keyboard shortcuts (e.g., I can scroll through a passage a verse at a time with the arrow keys). I admit, however, that Logos 4 has made this point much weaker than it used to be.
