    IF any?

    Currently using Logos Scholars Library, additional lexicons added on, and Wallace Greek Grammer
    was using Gramcord for Windows, not able to run it though on Windows 7

    Use Online Bible/The Word for "quick studies"...

    Well?
    And how do you usually use it to help you study Bible?

    I actually went and bought a Mac Mini for my office, and then went and bought Accordance. It's the best thing ever, imho.

    I had been using Gramcord during seminary and for a few years following. Enjoyed the program though found it to be rather limited (can't add modules, current offerings are pretty static.) Gramcord did the trick for a while but have really been causing trouble with any OS after Windows ME.

    Couple of friends use Logos, another uses Bibleworks. For the money, and if you've got the resources, Accordance is the best imho. :)

    I use Online Bible. That is a bit of a misnomer these days. When it was started, there was no such thing as the World Wide Web, and "Online" juszt meant it was available on your computer.

    I've been using Logos Bible Software for years, only using a my hard-cover bible for church and group studies - - - I keep it in my car.

    Not so sure why you'd use Online Bible/The Word when you have Logos.
    It's sort of like saying I have a Mega-gigabite multi-core processing computer but I fire up my IBM 80-88 for help.

    I own/use series 3 which do you use?
    Started Logos 2 Scholars , upgraded to 3 Scholars Silver
    have not gone to Logos 4 yet, as afraid will not be able to "get" whole collection updated, and cannot afford to buy it brand new!

    Also use Linux, and there is a neat version for Chrisians to use called Ubuntu CE!

    E-sword. Logos, Quick Verse, Zondervan, Bible Explorer, Illumina, Parson's Greek and Hebrew Tutor, WordSearch, BibleSoft, Click Art, IVP, NAS Electronic Bible, AMG, Thomas Nelson, The Bible Library, Ages Library, and a few other HTML CDs that have reference materials.

    I am currently over 3500 volumes on my hard drive (last time I counted) and always adding more as they come available.

    I use multiple platforms to get materials that only one publisher will release, but most of the software will work with either Logos or STEP readers, so I usually use Logos or Bible Explorer to access the various books loaded into those formats.

    For those who have never seen AGES, it is a WORTHY addition to any electronic library. Lots of BANG for the buck:

    Also note that almost every publisher has free downloads on their site that add to the library.

    Another great resource is "Free Bible Software":

    http://www.freebiblesoftware.com/

    I have many, many additions from them.
