If you read the original Bible Software Shootout post, you’ll recall that I expressed surprise that one of the presenting companies, BibleWorks, could not search across different texts. It didn’t sound right, but a user of theirs confirmed that for me after the shootout. Turns out he (and therefore I) had that wrong.
BibleWorks’ presenter is a friend of mine (Glenn Weaver) and Glenn sent me an email afterward correcting me. He guessed (I presume correctly) that I and the other fellow misunderstood the audience question that he had answered with a “no”. I asked Glenn to create a video (or something visual) I could post on behalf of BibleWorks, and here it is. The part that specifically relates to what I was thinking and was surprised about is the section of the link “Using the Cross Version Search Mode.” That BibleWorks can do this makes more sense to me than what I took away from the shootout, since this sort of capability seems standard in software packages.
Thanks to Glenn for providing this in a timely manner!
