Since the Lexham English Bible and SBL Greek NT are freely available, it'd be great to have these in Accordance as an Accordance bundle, and even possibly included in future base collections:

 

http://lexhamenglishbible.com

http://sblgnt.com

 

Or if someone wanted to take the time to make User Bibles out of them to post to the Exchange, that'd work as well. :-)

 

Those would be two more resources I could crossgrade over into Accordance format with.

 

Thanks!

Since Lexham is Logos's Bible, I have a hard time seeing Accordance licensing it for sale/distribution in Accordance. (And I understand such a hesitation, assuming it exists.)

I have made modules and send it to Johannes, but he hasn't at the moment the time, to upload all the bibles that I have created to his Homepage.

Who is Johannes, and what kind of homepage does he have?

Daniel Wallace just reviewed Lexham Discourse GNT: http://danielbwallac...bible-software/

 

As interesting as it appears, Abram is likely correct: it is tied to another software developer.

Yes Lexham Press is wholly a subsidiary of Logos Bible software. It is a good enough translation but it also is not something Accordance could ever make a penny on, in addition to that Accordance would then be beholden to report sales items to Logos. I can not see it ever happening. I have used LEB and still wonder why Logos undertook it, but they have but Accordance putting it in their software makes about as much sense as putting a Ford engine in a GMC truck.

Rick--I suspect Fabian is referring to this site.

Thanks to a couple members of the forums community, I should be about set. :-) I guess these eventually could be submitted to the Exchange if the User Bible creators wished to send them to Ken (and if Ken wanted to keep up with the download quota to suffice for the licensing requirements).

 

Gotta love User Bibles in Accordance, plus gotta love the Accordance community! :-)

After reading the Licensing Agreement, it probably never will get posted to the Exchange (since someone would have to report all the downloads to Logos which would be a huge pain), but oh well. Thanks to a couple community members, I'm still happy. :-)

HI Nathan, that's right. At the moment the software we use to host the exchange does not keep track of downloads, and I would need to change the infrastructure of the site to do that. If we thought there was a really big advantage in doing that, then we would do it, but I am yet to be convinced of a reason to do so that would justify the hours of reconfiguration,

 

Sorry about that.
