Hello BW Users. Could anyone tell me if there's an interlinear, and what you think about it? I'm trying to decide whether to buy BW or PCSB.

Thanks.

No there is not an interlinear within BW. I am not sure of if there is one planned for the future.

This is a bit complicated. Since BW is used by so many students of Greek and Hebrew in seminaries. It is a bit dangerous to include an interlinear as these can be real crutches to the language learning process.

However, for those who are past that stage or cannot take language courses they do have value. But, even then, they can be a real short-cut to really studying the text and doing exegesis.

All in all, I think the jury is still out on their value. I would not make a choice on a software program based on this criteria alone - as I am sure you are not!:D
