Hello, BibleWorks Users!
We're happy to announce a new, free update to BibleWorks 10. BW10 now comes with the Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible. When you move the mouse over English text in the Browse Window, the related EDB entry appears instantly in the new Dict tab in the Analysis Window:
Here's a little more information on the EDB from its Introduction:
The Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible is intended as a tool for practical Bible use, reflecting recent discoveries and the breadth of current biblical scholarship, including insights from critical analysis of literary, historical, archaeological, sociological, and other methodological issues. Approximately 5000 entries identify all persons and places named in the Bible, as well as cultural, natural, geographical, and literary phenomena — matters that Bible students at all levels may encounter in reading or discussion. Articles explaining and interpreting important focuses of biblical theology, text and transmission, Near Eastern archaeology, extrabiblical writings, and pertinent ecclesiastical traditions have been incorporated in an effort to make this the most comprehensive one-volume Bible dictionary available.
