Bibleworks: A Bible Studies Program that Everyone Needs

I just upgraded my Bibleworks software. It is the software that I have made sure over the years to keep upgrading because it is the one that I study from more than any other.
For those of you who don’t already know, Bibleworks represents a jewel in the area of Biblical studies programs. It is an extremely powerful Biblical studies software that every Christian should have. In fact, considering my views on doctrinal development (that I have written much on), I believe that the purchase and use of Bibleworks is now an established part of orthodoxy. I tell my classes that I am not really sure I was a Christian before Bibleworks was created and that if I ever lost my Bibleworks I would sit out on a mountain and simply await the second coming. Yes, it is that good.
What is so good about it? The versions of the Bible, the cross referencing tools, the speed of the search, the language tools, the focus on Bible study (not just thousands of books about the Bible), the ease of use, and, did I mention, the speed of the search?
In an age when we have so many wonderful resources and Bible programs, Bibleworks really does stand out as one of the leaders, if not the leader. I encourage everyone to purchase this program. It is worth the money you will invest in it.
Soon, here at the Credo House of Reclaiming the Mind Ministries, we will have some training sessions that I will lead in Bible Study Software and Bibleworks will most certainly be in the mix.
One other thing about Bibleworks. I have had a chance here and there to get to know the company and some of the individuals who are involved. These guys are the real deal. They love the Lord and are comitted to the truth and teaching the Bible, not simply what is going to make the next buck. Bibleworks is in the ministry, not in the world selling to ministry. Therefore, I endorse this software with no reservations.
