I have been a user of PC Study Bible since version 2 in 1998. the new interface in v4 alleviates most of the problems from previous versions which showed their DOS/early Windows roots. The incremental releases, up to the current v4.3 have also added some additional functionality that is much appreciated.
In addition, my experience with Biblesoft's customer support has been extremely positive. They are prompt to answer and always answer thoroughly.
What bothers me is that when I bought my original version back in '98 I was pretty green with knowledge of various Bible study tools (commentaries, lexicons, etc). I have since discovered that over half of the resources that Biblesoft included in this "Complete Reference Library" set are public domain and can be found for free on the web or in other programs. Even the "Bonus CD" has a large percentage of public domain resources.
I still own PCSB and use it when needed. However, I have discovered e-Sword, a free Bible study program with many free resources available for it, many of which you would have to pay for with PCSB. While perhaps not as flexible, it has suited my studies just fine. Plus, there is a very active online community of e-Sword users (primarily on Yahoo Groups) that have made many other resources available for free as well offering help when needed. There are also some free, third party tools available for creating your own resources in e-Sword, similar to the "Authoring System" in PCSB.Read more ›
If you've read my other reviews you'll know I've rated this at abondonware for some time. While "transferring my license" to my new windows 10 laptop I'll try some stability tests at "CRL4" and report back here.
Take a look at the Amazon customer reviews on Version 3 of PC Study Bible. They are balanced and give you some pro/con insights:
With Version 4, those aspects of the Version 3 program that either confined the further development of the product or that caused customer confusion were changed to give greater functionality and ease of use. Some people do not like change, but others have adapted to it and agree that the experience is better.
