I bought the Biblesoft Complete Reference Library, Version 5.O-C, chiefly to gain quick access to 38 volumes of patristic literature. This sub-library, as so much else of the mostly non-copyrighted material in the BCRL, is of course freely available on the Internet. But its convenient access on one's PC hard drive expedites personalized transcribing and correlation with some 300 other textual sources in this eclectic collection. Technically, this is accomplished here with the well designed and simple-to-use Biblesoft cross-referencing system. The 23 bible versions and concordances include the NIV and the NLT, though misses the NRSV and the NJB. While the Vulgate-English interlinear is also wanting, interlinears of Greek and Hebrew with Strong's numbers are present. The obvious shortcoming of the BCRL, in addition to the datedness of its sources, is its lack of materials from Continental Europe of all periods/movements (except Luther and Calvin), and on church history, as well as over-emphasis on the English/Anglo-American Puritans/Pietists/ Revivalists/Inspirational preachers. The st strength of the BCRL lies in its harmonious integration and correlation of a great many (if dated) sources within an effectual electronic architecture, with diverse search engines, especially in word study. For a price of $ 300, its inventory of encyclopedias and dictionaries could have been amplified with more up-to-date reference books.
