I have just posted a collection of guides with suggestions on installing and customizing BibleWorks 9.

  • The installation guide is intended for a Windows computer. If you are wanting to install BW on a Mac, Matt Day has provided a very helpful guide to make it work in the most effective and economical way. After installation, you can return to Parts 2 and following in my guides for further customization.
  • BibleWorks comes with a collection of excellent How-To videos. Some of my guides overlap with them, but my focus is more on customization and personalization than on use of the program. In customizing, however, you will discover quite a few ways to use the program. Further, my guides are available as DOCX or PDF files or some slideshows if you're the sort who would rather read directions than watch a video.
  • If you are already running BW9 (or BW8), Parts 2 and following may still be useful for you.
  • I'm working on another guide for installation if you are already using BW on one system and moving to a new system or installing BW on a second system and want the new installation to match the existing one. NOTE: Your BW license allows you to install the program on 2 systems as long as they will not be used concurrently.

The incentive to compose these guides is for the seminary students in my Greek and Gospels classes. Please note that many of the suggestions I make in the guides are subjective and are particularly oriented to my intended audience. Still, my suggestions arise from quite a few years of experience with BibleWorks. I hope you find them useful.
