Posted 13 February 2014 - 09:26 AM

I saw the Accordance logo in Zondervan's most recent academic catalog next to a bunch of books that I haven't seen in Accordance yet. I don't know what series The Message of the Prophets is part of (or if it is one), but it was mostly books like that with the same cover and design (e.g., Strauss's Four Portraits, One Jesus).

 

Was this in error, that the Accordance logo was printed in the catalog? Or might they be forthcoming?

And all God's people (at least the Accordance users among them) said, "Amen."

Is this part of a series?  It, along with a other titles, comes as a package from another software company.  Several of the resources are already available in Accordance.  Here's the list of resources sold as a package elsewhere:

 

Introduction to the Old Testament (available in Accordance)

A Survey of the Old Testament (available in Accordance)

The Torah Story

The Message of the Prophets (available in Accordance)

An Introduction to the New Testament (available in Accordance)

Introducing the New Testament: A Short Guide to Its History and Message

     (looks like this is an abbreviated version of previous book)

The New Testament in Antiquity

Four Portraits, One Jesus

A Survey of the New Testament (available in Accordance).

Packages are arbitrary. We won't sell a package with those exact titles because we won't have all those titles just yet. We have the ability to do them all, but will release them over time in waves. Also at least one of those listed has a new edition on the way or recently released; we'll want to make sure we get the newest edition.

The Message of the Prophets is not part of a series, then?  I couldn't find mention of a series at the Zondervan site.  I've put it on my wish list – looks good. 

 

I have always felt like it's worth the wait to get my resources in Accordance because the modules are so well done.  I've certainly experienced some buyer's remorse with some of my Kindle products.  Not buying anything else there that I may be able to buy here.

Agreed. The only advantage the Kindle currently has is the ability to take notes on all titles. Hopefully that will be available for Accordance very soon.

The Message of the Prophets might be apart of series with the publisher; I'm not sure. What I meant was that just because another platform bundles together a list of titles, it doesn't mean they are an official 'package' since the package is whatever they put in it. Of those titles you listed, we actually have an e-text and license for them all; we just haven't developed them yet. In the coming weeks we'll announce another round of Zondervan releases, and are now working on other titles from various publishers. We'll eventually come back to more Zondervan titles as well.

Any chance of a rough estimate on Strauss's Four Portraits, One Jesus? I.e., coming within weeks or a month or two? I'm debating getting the hard copy now, which I know I'd use, but would rather have it in Accordance if it might still be coming this winter/spring. Understood if you can't say.

I can't give an exact date on that title at this point. We have a couple more Zondervan titles planed for release that were already nearing completion, but after that it may be a while since we need to work on other titles from other publishers.
