  1. Mark,

    Do they have a Kindle version for this? That would be very helpful for some one like me who’s from India.

  3. Mark,

    I have heard of this book before. But i would like to know a bit about the Author. Who is Michael Bushell? To which denomination does he belong to? Is he a Scholar in this area? Please let me know about these questions and any other information which may be relevant.


  4. According to Andrew Myers back in 2007, Bushell was a member of the PCA. I don’t know if things have changed or not, but I have a feeling Mr. Myers can answer those questions you asked:

  5. Here a section of an interview of Mr. Bushell found here:
    “Bible Software Review: By way of an introduction, please give us any personal information you’d like to share with our readers.

    Michael Bushell: My name is Michael Bushell. I am the owner and lead programmer for BibleWorks. I became a Christian while in Grad School studying physics back in Texas. That was some 35 years ago. After grad school I went to seminary (Covenant Seminary in St. Louis and Westminster in Philadelphia). I eventually settled in a job working in nuclear weapons effects for the DoD in the Washington, D.C. area. I was there some 18 years, until about 6 years ago when I left that job to devote myself full time to BibleWorks. I am currently in the Presbyterian Church in America, though most of my Christian experience was in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.”

  6. I am looking forward to getting my copy of the new edition. I think it is the best overall and comprehensive book on the subject.

  7. Got my copy yesterday. I wish I had time to dig into it but it will have to wait for a while. Too many projects!

  8. The book leaves me wanting the evidence that Bushell states but doesn’t prove or document through footnotes. I will update if I change my mind.
