I have been using Accordance just a little over four years. The learning curve was sorta steep at the beginning but now everything seems perfectly logical. There are so many areas where I appreciate Accordance:
1. It has made me a better student of the Scriptures with a desire to dig deeper because I can.
2. It has also provided me with a wide range of tools that can be used efficiently.
3. It is so versatile that it can be used in the study preparation but also in the classroom.
4. It goes with me everywhere on my iPhone and iPad.
5. It has some graphical tools that can easily illustrate topography of the Bible lands.
6. It is affordable and can be expanded.
7. It has features that I am still discovering four years later!

I agree with you both about the way Accordance transforms Bible reading and study.
Realistically, how many people, with a hard copy of the Bible in front of them, take the time to look up the references included? How many will take the time to find out where the place mentioned in the text is located using the maps in the back? And how many will drag out a Bible dictionary to try to figure out who that obscure person is to whom the text is referring? Because all this stuff is very quickly available in Acordance, we don't have to have a huge block of time to pursue all these things. Accordance enables us to make the most of our study and reading time. I've been using it for nearly 10 years and I'm still learning. It's a wonderful and powerful tool. I would give up my dishwasher before I'd give up Accordance (and I really don't particularly love doing dishes).
Thanks for starting the thread, Chuck.

I just can't express to you all just how encouraging posts like this are to us. It is the nature of the software business to sow seed in places where we rarely see the harvest, just as it is in the Kingdom itself. When users like you express their thanks, we are grateful. At the same time, we are reminded of just how many more people may share your feelings, but not think to express it [or have a way to].
Thanks for taking time from your busy schedules to encourage us. We appreciate it.

I started using Accordance just over a year ago. I inquired about the program as a blogger/reviewer and they have made a (happy) customer out of me.
You know, it's sort of like the college kid away from school who is much more likely to call her or his parents when in trouble, needing something, etc. It doesn't mean he or she loves them any less, but that student may not think to call just to say things are going great.
Same dynamic is at play with the forums, I think. So, yes, I will echo my appreciation for Accordance and how easy it makes studying the Bible (and other texts), preparing sermons, etc.

I haven't used Accordance as long as many of you, but I can't imagine being without it now. As a lay teacher of an adult Sunday School class of around 70, I turn to Accordance to assist in weekly lesson preparation. So I too thank you for a fine product. I also commend you on a strong Christian stance.
Soli Deo Gloria,
