How much Bible software do we need?
I recently got offered an upgrade to Logos 5 Diamond for £960. It comes with lots of books - but I don't know if I need those books. It seems to me that for anyone deciding which Bible software to buy, it would be wise to first work out which resources you actually need for what you're doing. I presently use Bibleworks and Logos 4.
These are the resources that I actually NEED on a regular basis for what I do (give or take a few).
For texts in the original languages:
Greek combined NT & LXX
Apostolic Fathers in Greek and English (For Greek word/grammar studies)
HALOT or Holladay
Moulton and Milligan
Blass Debrunner Funk
Arnold Choi (I don't think this is available electronically)
Robert Raymond - New Systematic Theology
Bavinck - Reformed Dogmatics
Berkhof - Systematic Theology
Gerhardus Vos - Reformed Dogmatics
WBC (not all the commentaries in this series are evangelical, or any good).
Expositor's Bible Commentary
Keil and Delitzhe
New Testament use of the Old Testament
NET Bible notes
Comfort - Greek Manuscripts
Comfort - The New Testament Text and Translation commentary (don't think this is available electronically, except possibly in Accordance?)
The IVP essential library
Second London Baptist Confession 1689
I reckon that a big part of deciding what Bible software to get should be based on what resources we actually need.
