Remember the 1990s? They brought forth a variety of PC versions of the Bible. Back in the day, they were stunning; although admittedly, these first-generation programs were clunky, and little more than electronic texts of the Bible, marketed to the busy pastor or motivated Bible student. Gradually, speedier processors allowed for more features, including word study, and some graphics, such as maps of biblical lands, etc.
Today, the situation is remarkably different. Virtually none of the earlier pioneer companies survived and there are only several major developers of biblical software. Gone are the “mom and pop” companies, which, in the early days of Bible software, offered rudimentary, reasonably priced programs. In their place today are several big developers which produce smooth-running, lightning fast programs. One of the predominant software developers today is Logos Bible Software, Inc.
