If you’ve ever spent any time hanging out with Jim Barr (BibleWorks Seminary & Pastor Relations Manager) at a conference, you’ve likely heard somebody ask him when they’re going to add native support for Macintosh. Up until today the answers was, “We’re not.” Apparently there have been some hush-hush things going on over a BibleWorks in Norfolk, VA, because today they announced a new native option for Mac users.
Personally, I’ve been using BibleWorks on my Mac for a few years (Windows 7 running on top of VMWare Fusion). Between the cost of the VmWare Fusion license and the Windows license, you’re looking at $200 extra on top of the cost of the BibleWorks software. BibleWorks has been long aware that this additional cost is a hardship for many pastors and seminary students who are already on a tight budget. If this sounds like the conundrum you find yourself in, well today is your day. BibleWorks has developed a version of their software that will run natively on the Mac operating system, alleviating the additional expense of a Windows license and virtual machine software.
