I installed this several days ago and become truly addicted. The "AWG Complete Series" bundled is completely awesome. It is selling at more 100 bucks if not bundled with "Bible Essentials".
Yet I felt that it's not good enough so I purchase another holy grail the "Homan Study Bundle". It's the best companion of the "Bible Essentials", though you have spend another 80 bucks. The "Holman Complete Study Bundle" is even better if you need Hebrew-English and Greek-English interlinear study.
Then I went crazed and bought the NIV Bible together with the "College Press NIV NT and OT Commentary Bundle". I found that I finally spent around 500 bucks. More importantly I know that I will never regret about this.
I have acquired a lot of books recently for my reference lybrary so I mainly bought this to save space as the Word Study books take up a lot of room on the shelf. Happily, it works seamlessly with Bible Explorer 4 (free to download at wordsearch) and all the free reference tools that come with it. I can honestly say that I have spent five times as much on other products and not received nearly as much value. If you don't have this, GET IT!
I own both versions of AMG's Bible Essentials, the Logos and WordSearch versions, and could not be happier with the software. From the programs provided with the software to those extras that WordSearch offers, a very comprehensive library can be built from which a deep and enduring study of God's word can be launched. Couple that with Christianbooks excellent service, and you've got an unbeatable resource for a modest investment. As a teacher of the Hebraic Roots, this software enhances my ability to present the truth of God's word from the original languages.
