Here is a screen shot of a work space I set up to mimic the NIB in Print.... The NSRV/NIV84 Parallel (NIV combined with the NAB for the Parallel texts in the Apocrypha), the Text below is the NIB ONE Volume commentary since we do not have the 12 volume yet.

Greetings Helen & Accordance staff,

Is it a possibility that Accordance together with Abingdon will offer a crossgrade discount for the "NIB 12 Volume Set" module (when available) for those who have previously purchased the original New Interpreter's Bible 12 Volume Set on CD-ROM (relevant links below)?:

Thank you in advocate for your assistance with this inquiry!

We'll need to negotiate this with Abingdon.

I just wish we had a rough ETA on the NIB.... I do know that nothing is ever said till a couple weeks before a release and even then it is just an occasional occurrence. I am glad to know it is coming... even happier to know an inquiry is being made into upgrade pricing, although I won't hold my breath.

Thanks again so much Helen for your follow-up--last question then in regard to the crossgrade inquiry: As I'm pursuing this option for a professor at the college where I provide support, is it possible that you might be able to offer a date as to when you'll be aware of a confirmation on the potential NIB crossgrade option? Thanks in advance!

Blessings,

Robert

It has been my experience that negotiations and such between publishers and software seem to move at a rather glacial pace. I do believe they have the 12 volume commentary under contract but I am not sure if anyone is yet working on it. Inquiring about cross grades  is something that usually happens when a company abandons their own platform in favour of a new one. Since Abingdon has allowed Olivetree, Accordance and now Logos to distribute NIB titles (although OT is missing the 12 Volume set and Logos is currently only working on the Dictionary to the best of my knowledge, even Accordance will not have a complete set since it has yet to announce whether it has the Study Bible coming). So from my point of view anyway it doesn't appear Abingdon has a favoured successor and therefore  has no logical reason to offer upgrades. Upgrades means they take in less money, and while a gracious thing to do, I do not see it benefiting themselves in any way, which likely means we will not see one. Although I hope I am wrong.

 

-Dan

PS:Even Tyndale  only allowed a most minor discount (20% i think) for those of us who had Life Application Bibles with Olivetree when they reintroduced it.

Greetings again Helen,

With this exciting new release, "New Interpreter's Bible Now Available," is it premature to enthusiastically inquire once more on the possibility of crossgrade pricing?

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and consideration!

Blessings,

Robert

As soon as we get them done. ;) We're working on them as fast as possible, knowing that questions like this will start coming. 

 

We're also adding page numbers throughout which will be released as a free update when finished.

I know page numbers will be great for some I am pleased as punch that the OT is out with ability to cite the authors.

Here are two versions of the work space one like the above with original language tied and one with just regular NIV(NAB) NRSV. For anyone who might want a work space that mimics the print volumes.

Hey Dan, the one called NIB.accord fails for me because I don't have the NRSV - only the NRSVS. Does it need the NRSV? Could you create a version of it with the NRSVS?

LOL I can do that  I did do one that had NRSVS and NIV GK but perhaps you don't have that one for NIB w OL.accord..

 

Ok here is the NRSVS-NIV/NAB

Hopefully lots of people discover NIB on Accordance... in the Logos forums I was asked my opinion of the NISB which Logos is not offering, and let it slip that Accordance had it and the NIB.... A little impish of me I know but I would bet you might see some orders from there... :)

The majority of my resources are in Logos.... I do like it's integration.... It's passage guide is nice but it is a resource hog and when it indexes it uses over 10 GB of HD space, and it often unexpectedly quits. {EDIT} So to answer your question I do use Logos daily but as i said earlier I wish one magical day all my resources were in Accordance....
