For my study and use, Accordance 9 is top notch, and I use it daily.
But sometimes, access to my computer is limited. Hence this new product from a joint work between SBL and Logos Software is a valuable new edition to Biblical studies, especially on the go.
I haven’t had a chance to look at it in depth, but from the initial review, it should be a good resource for all users of the Greek.
Press Release for SBL:
Free critically edited Greek New Testament propels biblical scholarship forward
BELLINGHAM, WA—October 28, 2010—The Society of Biblical Literature and Logos Bible Software announced today the release of The Greek New Testament: SBL Edition (SBLGNT), a critically edited Greek New Testament.
For the first time ever, students, teachers, pastors and laypeople throughout the world can access a reliable, critically edited version of the Greek New Testament for free electronically. And because the SBLGNT has a generous end-user license agreement and doesn’t require proprietary fonts, users can easily interact with and share the text at no cost.
With the work of textual criticism far from complete, there is a continual need for fresh research and analysis. The SBLGNT, edited by Michael W. Holmes, utilizes a wide range of printed editions, all the major critical apparatuses, and the latest technical resources and manuscript discoveries to establish the text. The result is a critically edited text that differs from the Nestle-Aland/United Bible Societies text in more than 540 variation units.
In addition to the free electronic edition, the Society of Biblical Literature and Logos Bible Software also offer a reasonably priced, professionally produced print edition of the SBLGNT, which includes the full apparatus of variant readings from the NA27 and the four primary editions on which the SBLGNT is based.
