We Have a Winner!

We are happy to announce that Deacon John Sommer won Verbum’s Scholar library giveaway!

We asked Deacon John a few questions about his plans for his new software:

Q. What do you do for the Church?

I am currently assigned as Deacon to the St. Clement of Rome Parish in Bixby, Oklahoma. I am responsible for the Middle and High School Programs at my assigned parish. I have been performing this ministry for 15 years.

I am also a Business Manager for the Parish of Christ the King in Tulsa, Oklahoma. From time to time, the Pastor will ask me to assist with Deaconate duties at Christ the King.

Q. How do you plan to use your new Verbum Scholar library?

My plan for the library is to increase my knowledge about our Lord. One of my main goals currently is to share the Faith with the youth of the Diocese of Tulsa, and I will use Verbum resources to bring our Lord alive in their everyday activities.

We are focused on the development of disciples and this library will be a great reference to provide historical examples of the great Saints and Fathers of the Church.

It will be a great source of information in assisting me with my preaching responsibilities and homily preparation.

Congratulations, Deacon John!

If you didn’t win, you can still take advantage of a limited-time 15% discount on any Verbum library—simply use coupon code SUMMERSCHOLAR before Saturday, September 19!

What’s New in Verbum Now 6.5?

Thanks for being a member of Verbum Now. We’re excited to be launching new features, media, and datasets that are available to you now.

Psalms Explorer Dataset

The Psalms Explorer dataset makes the Psalms Explorer data searchable, giving you the ability to search the Psalms with Verbum’s powerful search functionality. Discover a Psalms’ author, genre, theme, and more.

Addressees in Reported Speech

Quickly locate all the places where a person, place, or thing is spoken to in the biblical texts. Find everywhere Satan speaks to Jesus. Or, look for all the places Jesus prays to the Father. You can even search for everywhere Jesus speaks to the city Jerusalem and find where he laments over its coming destruction.

Concordance: Works Cited

The Works Cited concordance pulls out references by page number, bibliographic citations, and direct hyperlinks to other resources. This enables you to open a commentary volume and run a Works Cited concordance to see which resources the author consulted most frequently.

Names of God Interactive

With the Names of God Interactive, you can find all of the names of God and where they occur in the Old and New Testaments. Narrow your search to specific genres of biblical literature such as prose, instruction, and Law.

RSVCE Hebrew Old Testament Reverse Interlinear

The English text of the RSVCE has been aligned to the Hebrew Old Testament. Access Hebrew Bible Word Studies, compare translations using sympathetic highlighting or search for biblical people, places, and things right from the text of the RSVCE.

Plus new resources for you to try throughout August

Mark Wheeler’s Favorite Resources: Now with a Bundling Discount!

Several months ago, Verbum Sales Representative Mark Wheeler had an idea to combine some of his favorite resources. He says, “I noticed a lot of high quality resources that would go well together. Also, I wanted to see people get the best deal possible.”

The result was The Liturgical Press Academic bundle, which includes the following series:

If  you’ve already purchased any of these resources on their own, you’ll get a dynamic pricing on the complete bundle. That means you won’t be charged for what you already own, and you still get a great bundling discount on everything new. It’s a fantastic deal!

Available for several months, this bundle has been very popular, especially with customers who already own parts of it.

The Liturgical Press Academic bundle “fills a much-needed gap for Catholic biblical scholarship,” Mark notes, adding, “Rarely has such excellent Catholic scholarship been accessible at such a reasonable price.”

Thank you for taking the initiative, Mark!
