Thank God for this gift too wonderful for words! 1
A psalm of thanksgiving. Shout with joy to the LORD, all the earth! Worship the LORD with gladness. Come before him, singing with joy. Enter his gates with thanksgiving; go into his courts with praise. Give thanks to him and praise his name. 2
For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 3
Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? 4
until there was only one left– his son whom he loved dearly. The owner finally sent him, thinking, ‘Surely they will respect my son.’ 5
Let them praise the LORD for his great love and for the wonderful things he has done for them. 6
A psalm of David. Let all that I am praise the LORD; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. 7

Through December 25, when you buy BibleWorks 9, we’ll include the ESV Study Bible module (a $20 value)! This is the full text of the ESV Study Bible, with high-resolution images and maps. (Offer does not apply to upgrades.)
The ESV Study Bible adds a ton of detailed study notes (automatically loads next to any Bible verse for any Bible version in BibleWorks), 240 high-resolution resources (maps, illustrations, charts, timelines, etc.), extensive reference articles, and more. In our opinion, this is a must-have resource for BibleWorks users.

I wanted you to know a bit early that after working for several months with the developers at CrossWire, BibleWorks is announcing today that users can download a FREE installer that allows Mac users to run BibleWorks on their machines. I thought you might want to post this on your website/blog.
NO VM software required!
NO Windows license needed!
If you have the latest BW9 DVDs (rev 3), there is no additional cost to run the native version of BibleWorks 9 on a Mac. Registered users with earlier BW9 versions can purchase replacement rev.3 DVDs for $25.
As always, BibleWorks comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you purchase BibleWorks directly from us but cannot get it to work with your virtualization software, you may return BibleWorks for a refund (shipping not included).
BW9 takes a giant leap forward in terms of opening up the world of textual variants and text criticism. A new database lets users access the major variants in every verse of the Greek New Testament. The manuscript witnesses for each variant are laid out in a chart displaying the manuscript’s approximate date and type (that is, uncial, miniscule, etc.) for instant analysis of the witnesses.
Even more exciting, the transcribed texts of the major uncial witnesses can be selected as display versions. I can read the critical text, Sinaiticus, Alexandrinus, Vaticanus, and others side-by-side, such that the historic witnesses come alive as real texts, and not just as symbols at the bottom of the page of the print edition of the critical text. These are also accessible through a new “manuscripts” tab in the analysis window, together with photographic images of select manuscripts.
The introduction of the fourth window dramatically enhances ease of use. Now I can have the window displaying multiple versions, the analysis window displaying lexical resources, and a browse window showing the verse in its full literary context all displayed across the screen. A new “use” feature provides gives me an instant book- or canon-wide concordance of any word under the cursor. That feature is an amazing time-saver.

I’ve had Bibleworks 8 for a few years now and it is a marvelous tool which I think is needed – especially for everyone who has a bible. I encourage my fellow Seminarians at United Theological Seminary to pick up a copy – and more, that UTS adopts a policy that each student had to get a copy.
Here are some of the new things:

We’ve added a major new feature to the main window. The Verse Tab tracks with any Bible version. For the current verse under the mouse, it displays the relevant sections in resources such as the CNTTS apparatus, the NET Bible textual notes, the Tischendorf apparatus, Metzger’s Textual Commentary (requires unlock), and the ESV Study Bible (requires unlock).

We’re excited to announce that BibleWorks is now partnering with WORDsearch — one of the leading providers of electronic Bible libraries for Christian pastors, teachers, and believers — to make many of its titles available for use in BibleWorks.

These titles can be used in BibleWorks and in WORDsearch — whichever suits your needs.
