This is a terrific product! I lose myself for hours going deeper and deeper into studying God's Word. On a practical note: When friends are troubled or ask a spiritual question, it's so easy to help them with their walk by simply adding a copy and paste snippet of a spiritual wonderwork into an email.

Biblesoft has gotten serious about their software and seem to be listening to former criticism. They still include tons of outdated Christian freeware, but also they add some awesome Bible dictionaries, handbooks, commentary, Greek, Hebrew helps etc. The best part is taking all of this and putting it in a explore and study package. They have updated the software a few times to address issues and I am truly happy having all my software as one massive search and explore. I know there are other products out there but i do feel you get the most easy, intuitive massive library for the price. I have added a lot of add ones for additional money and feel so good to have all my Christian resources all together in one package. It saves me tons of time not having to go the Christian Library when I have my own personal one. I have substituted collecting Christian books in my Biblesoft PC for DVDs. Now that a good thing right? My only complaint? Get even more discounted books and sets of a variety. There is so much Christian material out. I love love love this product and find myself studying the bible instead of watching my massive DVD movie collection. Finally if you are a Hi-tech type of person like me then this is your answer. It fulfills your need to be on computer with the fulfillment of pursing God's truth in all his works of Words all together. I use this for my class, Bible study, personal use, church etc. I wish I knew the people who produce this more they should do a profile or something to include in package. P.S. don't skimp out by getting the lesser package the best value is the 5.0 Advance Reference Library. OK to me its like the Ipod for Christian software and I am done!
