Rick and Graham,

 

many thanks for checking this.  

 

We're working on some additional enhancements in Accordance to help with the accuracy of links when the target module is not installed, but it's a bit complicated (it always is when working with the Pseudepigrapha). 

 

Can I make a somewhat serious suggestion? Use the current 20% off sale to buy Charlesworth if you are at all serious about reading / researching the OT Pseudepigrapha. ;) Not only is it the authoritative version for these texts, the book introductions and essays are invaluable for getting a grasp on their complex nature.

 

Thanks again for the feedback.

Ken:

It looks like Accordance has made a great contribution towards Historical-Grammatical interpretation with this tool.  Maybe I will spring for it during the sale.

Hi Enoch, it is a very interesting resource. It is a background tool, not a direct grammatical aid as you so rightly suggest. I don't always agree with his thoughts about like to other material, but always find it stimulating to think about. Clontz has done an amazing job in putting it all together. And I am told he is an engineer!

Rick,  10.4.1 update has addressed the link accuracy… thank you!!!!

 

Perhaps you can tell me if Charlesworth covers everything found within Charles and Evans?  I can see from certain links Charlesworth has material not found in the other two.  Your answer will help me with my decision regarding your above suggestion.

Sorry for the delay in replying. I'm glad the update addresses the accuracy for you. Note that it is not perfect. We found cases where book names and versification between Charlesworth (PSEUD-CW) and Charles (PSEUD) make it impossible for the links to be 100% accurate across editions. We are, however, going to look into standardizing some book names in Charles according to Charlesworth, which will help further (but may break some old links to Charles - again, a messy situation).

 

As for the comparison of the three editions, Charlesworth is the most comprehensive. I did a quick look into the number of books included in each, and here are the numbers: Charlesworth (84), Charles (36), Evans (74). But, remember that Evans is only a translation of Greek fragments, whereas Charlesworth encompasses multiple source languages. And, neither Charles nor Evans include similar introductory essays and introductions.

 

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

I really like this resource and I think I have now purchased all the resources that Accordance links to (the 20% sale is a great time to do this)....I hope that Accordance will continue to update and add resources that are referenced....I hope that helps
