This product will help you determine what the original language of the text said, and in what context. Often nuance is missing in the translation, but this product will allow a person to see the original tenses of the verbs, the persons of the pronouns, and cases that just aren't visible in English!
I also find very helpful the numerous translations included in the product, so that I can see how many of these translations have chosen a particular rendering of a phrase, and which are the best in particular verses.
The learning curve to begin using the product can be a bit steep (the reason why I provide this review after the later version has been released!), but it is the best product I have found--particularly if you want the Hebrew included (which was not available in the previous product I had been using). However, the product does provide pop-up boxes to help when it "senses" you entered something incorrectly.
In conclusion, I recommend this product to all who are serious about original-language Bible study and research, whether it be for personal growth, sermon preparation, or theological presentations. This product will make your use of time more efficient!

Bible verses are virtually at your fingertips and word and phrase searches are so eary that lessons and sermons seem to write themselves. The transfer of datas to Microsoft Word is so smooth, it seems that the program has human intuition. Great program... great value!!
