A first package for a novice, especially if they dont have a deep wallet, would almost certainly be someone else's package, esword and quickverse are the 2 that quickly come to mind, I got a quickverse intro package at berean for 20 bucks a couple years ago, it works well for what it does.

I guess that their might not be a way around the "get a lot for little cash" issue is there?

 

I told a woman how much I paid for my bible software and she gasped! As a geek..I thought that it was reasonable.

I told a mechanic how much I paid for my Bible software, and he said, "well I have to pay for my tools and you have to pay for yours. "  I thought that was reasonable.

Hi all,

I have been trying for years to get friends interested in Libronix because when I saw it, a new world of study opened up to me.  Revolutionary, since I had been used to Quick Verse and  PCSB.  And we gave the Scholar's Library to our pastor and she loves it.   I have been able to get people interested in E-sword (I am not pushing other software packages, here) partly because it is "free" and also because the learning curve is not steep.  The people I know have neither the time nor the desire to face the challenge Libronix appears to be to them.  I show it to them and they say "wow-it does all that" and they walk away.  I don't think it is necessarily cost that turns them off.

Esther is right about it being very powerful; I've done the tutorials repeatedly, purchased Camp Logos I and II, read the posts by the power users and gained others insights.  It has been like a part time job and always a challenge I have relished.  I am neither a pastor, nor a seminary student so I lack the background that others might bring with them as far as original language studies.

There is some truth to what you say.

I know few people who LOVE to do bible study. I know even fewer who would shell out money to do it.

 

I know some who are dazzled by Logos and say it's great...but when it comes to shelling out that cash....it just doesn't happen. hmmmm

I am not at all versed in marketing but I bet the eBible people really put a lot of thought behind their various Lifeworks collections. It has a LOT of pluses with very few negatives.

First they start with Libronix - the best library system available. Next they include several popular Bible versions. Then a basic reference library is added. They top off the package with your choice of several very popular Bible teachers: Jeremiah, Lucado, MacArthur, McGee, Stanley, Hayford,  & Bill Bright . Most of these retail between $40~50 with street values as low as $15.  I don't think you can beat one of these as a starter set.

I know a lot of the younger generation is used to FREE stuff and may not even be willing to part with $15 for Bible software. So how about a website where they can download a starter library for FREE?

They can go from screen to screen choosing 3 Bible versions, 1 Bible dictionary, 1 Bible encyclopedia, 3 commentaries, some introductory texts and devotionals. Then get an install code upon FREE registration. The marketing department can send automated emails offering additional titles available for purchase or whatever. The DIFFERENCE from other freely available Bible study software is the Libronix engine driving it.  I think it would open the gate to many new users.
