Now, while this may be an amazing piece of software, here in South Africa it is a ridiculously over-priced piece of software. Of course, I wouldn't mind a sponsor or two for the Logos 4 Gold software package, although, the Platinum edition would be much better! Oh, well! A man can dream! Some men dream of cars. This is what I dream about.
However, for the average salaried South African, and even the above average paid South African, Logos is terribly over-priced. Whether I decide to buy Logos locally or online internationally, it can cost me half or more of my salary for the month. Looking at South Africa, taking a rough guess, probably 98% of people in South Africa cannot afford the Logos software.
It is for this reason that I would recommend a much better priced Bible software package. How about a FREE Bible software package? I thought I'd get your attention!
e-Sword is a free Bible software package for Windows, and has a whole range of translations that can be installed with it for free.
|# of free English translation modules||24 (i.e. ESV, ASV, KJV, RV, Geneva, etc)|
|# of Greek NT modules||6 + a Hebrew NT|
|# of Hebrew OT modules||2 + Greek OT Septuagint|
|# of other languages translation modules||47 (i.e. Afrikaans, Arabic, Chinese, German, Italian, etc)|
|# of Commentary modules||16 (i.e. Matthew Henry, John Gill, Adam Clarke, etc)|
|# of Bible dictionary modules||14 (i.e. Brown-Driver-Briggs, Easton's, ISBE, Nave's, Strong's, Thayer's, etc)|
|# of graphics modules||9 (i.e. American Bible Society Maps, NASA, CIA World Factbook, etc|
|# of devotion modules||5 (i.e. Spurgeon's Morning and Evening, Day-By-Day By Grace, etc)|
|# of extra modules||16 (i.e. Ante-Nicene Fathers, Works of Josephus, Calvin's Institutes, History of The Christian Church, etc)|
As you can see, this is a lot to get for free. This is also what I use. Although it is not completely sufficient when doing original language work (for this I use the original way of books), it really is a good package to use.
So, without throwing your budget out of whack, download e-Sword and you have a lot to work with.
