[Accordance 10: Basic] Remember the old printed concordances of yesteryear? They were “must have” tools for Bible study, but each Bible translation needed a different one! Thankfully, modern Bible software has set us free from those sorts of limitations. In this podcast, Dr. J celebrates Accordance’s twentieth anniversary, reminding us of some of the advantages of digital concordances—and the reasons we should be grateful for them.

Not sure if this will copy properly here, but try this one (or copy the above link location and remove the second "http//")

Better yet.  I went to youtube and looked at it there. No need to wait for the download.

Thanks for the podcast, Dr J.  We sold our NASB Exhaustive Concordance on eBay this year.  It hadn't been used in over a decade.

 

We're getting rid of LOTS of books we don't use anymore because we've gone digital.  The basement looks like a packing facility, with stacks of flattened boxes (purchased in bulk from Amazon) and lots of packing material and tape.  We also sold Franklin electronic Bibles (anyone remember those?).  And a big, bulky parallel Bible.  And a Harmony of the Gospels.  Accordance has revolutionized our Bible study around here, and considerably reduced our physical library.

Hah! I understand, Julie. My bookshelf gets its most use as a backdrop for the podcasts. I am wondering if I should donate my library to some library somewhere.

A bunch of the stuff we sold went to a guy in Hawaii – Steve wanted to make a personal delivery . . .

 

We're just happy to have the stuff out of the house and to someone who can use it.

When the electricity goes off....you'll be sorry that you gave away your library!  :-)

I'm still building bookshelves. I grew up with books everywhere and I love having them around. So I'll happily keep the extra insulation and enjoy just reading them. Its hard to beat a book for simple serial reading, even though digital has many advantages. There is something very nice in just turning pages.

 

Thx

I don't think I'll ever lose my fondness for the books themselves, regardless of the content. I even miss the smell!

We're 62.  Whatever stuff we leave behind, our kids will have to deal with.  So if we're not using it, or using as a loaner, we'll get rid of it.  We still have a lot of books, however, because not everything comes digital.  And there are some books that I, like you, like to pick up and read or browse.

 

A lot of the stuff we have in Accordance are things we've never owned in print.

:) Yep that too - more than one reason to stick your nose into a good book. Or a secondhand bookstore. When I first read this comment I thought immediately of my hardcover copy of Blass, Debrunner, Funk which has that wonderful good quality paper and ink smell. The smell of warm computers just isn't the same :)

 

Thx

D

Glad to know I'm not the only one who smells books (and, occasionally, computers).

I don't foresee monographs and edited volumes losing precedence in our digital age. However, I believe we stand privileged to create some amazing databases and reference materials that are better suited for a digital medium, particularly in regards to manuscripts, images, transcriptions, and linguistic search functionality. Stay tuned . . .
