Is the news that Mike B. suddenly inherited a small fortune and has decided to buy German Bible Society?? Cuz that would be pretty neat
I know there is already the "Summary" sub-tab under the Resources tab. I would really like to have a Summary (or "custom" or "personal" or whatever) tab that allows me to choose a host of resources to put in there based on my type of study at the time. Commonly, I would love to study with my analysis tab open, along with my personal notes, without giving up a context or browse view.
I often wish I had one tab that updated like the analysis tab with a couple of lexicons + X-refs + personal notes + Strongs + audio pronunciation + maybe even Matthew Henry scrolling off the bottom of the tab.
My suggestion may go against the very clean screen format that BibleWorks has maintained though. I want to cram all my short tools together and go get the more verbose tools with clicks when I need.
You can already do almost all of this!

Here's another suggestion for the next or some future version of BibleWorks. Currently in Greek lexica such as BDAG references to biblical verses are hot links; hovering the mouse pointer over them can pop up the biblical text and clicking on them will load the verse(s) into the Browse Window. Nonbiblical references are not linked in this way, even ones that are part of BW, such as Philo, Josephus, and the Apostolic Fathers. I'd like to see these hot links include all texts available in a standard installation of BW, so that one could easily look up a usage in Philo or the Shepherd of Hermas. It's so important when doing studies of words to include as much of the Greek context as possible, not just the NT and LXX.
I loooove having Pentecostals in the forum!
- The new The Concise Greek-English Lexicon of the New Testament by Danker
- NETS (New English Translation of the Septuagint)
- Tagged Vulgate
NETS has been requested by several people in this thread. I also requested a searchable tagged Vulgate, and learned that a tagged, but non-searchable, version (VULM) is part of the BW9 package already. See my response to Mark Hoffman's post. Pending more information about the VUM that Mark mentioned, a seachable tagged version is still a desideratum.
The Peshitta OT would be extraordinary,
since it's a Ist to IIId century witness,
and it would allow complete concordances inside the PES display version.
