I am looking for examples of how to use BibleWorks when studying a text, doing exegesis, preparing a sermon, etc. Do you have a general method that you follow? Are there certain steps that you take with BibleWorks that seem to help more than others when preparing a lesson or a sermon? I am interested here in how we can get the most out of this program.
My question from comes from my own experience of owning the program for years but not using it to full potential. I simply looked up passages or copied them into the document I was writing. For many years I have used a process of studying the language of a text in order to understand it better before preaching or teaching on the passage. Frankly, much of that work was done outside of BibleWorks. I found the editor too small and cumbersome to be helpful. As of now, I have gone through the tutorials in BW6 and learned much more that I can do with the program. I have particularly enjoyed the diagramming function as I have realized for years how the way language functions in a passage helps us understand the passage a little better. I was hoping that this thread might be a way for others to talk about how they are using the program. It would be extremely helpful for me, and perhaps for others if someone has a step-by-step process for doing exegesis with BibleWorks.
