I’ve had a few people ask me what exactly I’m planning to say at the BJU Greek forum this coming Thursday (April 10).

    I’ve used BibleWorks and Logos/Libronix. I love Logos for its research abilities and the rich collection of material (esp. TDNT and WBC). BibleWorks I’ve used for exegesis and it’s invaluable for getting in the greek/hebrew versions of the texts.
