IVP Software and LTJ

I finally broke down and took a software plunge. The first wonderful purchase is The Essential IVP Reference Collection Version 2. Truth be told, I purchased it for the IVP background dictionary set, but holy smoke Batman, this came with so much more. Check out the contents.

Contents:

          • Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels
          • Dictionary of Paul and His Letters
          • Dictionary of the Later New Testament and Its Developments
          • Dictionary of New Testament Background
          • IVP Bible Background Commentary: Old Testament
          • IVP Bible Background Commentary: New Testament
          • New Bible Dictionary
          • New Bible Commentary
          • Hard Sayings of the Bible
  • The Dictionary of Biblical Imagery
  • New Bible Atlas
  • New Dictionary of Biblical Theology
  • New Dictionary of Theology
  • Pocket Dictionary for the Study of New Testament Greek
  • Pocket Dictionary of Apologetics and Philosophy of Religion
  • Pocket Dictionary of Biblical Studies
  • Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms


My other fabulous purchase is Luke Timothy Johnson's The Writings of the New Testament, Revised Edition with CD-ROM. Frankly, I already had the first edition, but I purchased this version for the CD-ROM.

What works out well is that both of these work through the Libronix system. I am quite the happy camper.

Congrats on the IVP library, I still am waiting for the funds to purchase it.
Also I don't know if you are aware of the Personal Book Builder for Libronix or the almost 900 books available for free download (without commercials even) from stilltruth.com

Thanks for the tip TC. I bought IVP through Amazon at about $113.
