Formation of BibleWorks Interest Group

The BibleWorks interest group will be established in Seminari Theoloji Malaysia soon. Read the announcement that I circulated recently below.

I understand that a number of you already have BibleWorks installed in your computer. BibleWorks is a very powerful software for exegesis and research, but many of us still do not really know how to make full use of this software.

As such, a number of us are interested in maximising our investment in this software by forming the BibleWorks Interest Group. The primary purpose of this interest group is for us to learn how to make full use of this software, and discover how this software could aid us in our bible study, preaching, teaching, and exegesis. In addition, we also hope that this software could help us appreciate all the hard work we have put into learning the Greek language, and we attempt to demonstrate that with a little knowledge of Greek, it can go a long way to help us appreciate the scripture better. Finally, we anticipate that BibleWorks would help us dig
deeper into the scripture and, in turn, love the scripture more.

So if you are interested to find out more, please get in touch with us.

Details of our first meeting for the BibleWorks Interest Group are as follows:

Date: Tuesday, 24 February, 2009
Time: 4.30-5.30pm
Venue: L4

What to bring: your computer loaded with BibleWorks (preferably version 7, although version 8 has just been recently released), and if you have one, your copy of Wallace's grammar.
No need RSVP - just turn up.

Please note that this is not a workshop - it is not a lecture either. It is an interest group - which means we will be learning together. There will be areas we don't even know. So let's discover BibleWorks and the scripture together!

Hope to see you on Tuesday, 24 February!

Dr Lim Kar Yong
