Today, I learned that the folks at Logos have an Anglican Studies collection <https://www.logos.co...dies-collection> As I find myself doing more teaching and preaching in the Episcopal church context, it would be really cool to have some of these books in Accordance for quick reference and teaching handouts.

Would anyone else besides me find those helpful?

I certainly would!

 

TheMinibishop, you may have already seen this, but there's a nice 1979 BCP as an Accordance User Tool here, at the Accordance Exchange. Many thanks to Greg Terry for putting it together... I probably use it every week, even though the church I pastor is United Church of Christ.

 

Accordance was at one point working on a collection of Prayer Books for release, but it's been some time since that was mentioned on the forums, so am not sure how far off that one is. (It included, I think, the 1662 BCP, etc.)

Being Anglican I always am looking for good works from that vein of theology. One Item already in Accordance is 

FOR EVERYONE: THE COMPLETE NEW TESTAMENT COLLECTION (N.T. WRIGHT) (18 VOLUMES)

Ah... found the post Rick made a while back.

 

1928 and 1979 Book of Common Prayer would be nice, as well as Marion J. Hatchett's Commentary on the American Prayer Book. That could be a basic/bare minimum grouping.

You know there is a load of stuff available as PDF, basically all the common worship, bcp, the excellent and totally indispensable times and seasons together with a load of initiation stuff. I suppose links to the lectionary readings could be useful but not sure what else you would add in accordance and am happy to have all the PDFs on my iPad and access them through adobe reader.

But seriously, if you haven't seen times and seasons, download it!

Plus what is being talked about

Is this something that can be converted and put on exchange?

By the way you know tom has published a complete New Testament using the translation in his for everyone series, I just wondered if there was any mileage in including that as a stand alone bible module to be used with the other translations rather than have to find it interspersed throughout the commentaries. (Not sure how accordance have coded it, as I have a lot on either kindle or hard copy).

I just noticed it is not listed in English bible translations.

Time and again I have seen the New Oxford Annotated Bible labeled as an unofficial Anglican Study Bible. 

 

Oxford Bible CommentaryBarton, John, and John Muddiman, eds.  Oxford University Press, 2001. Is again not strictly Anglican but I believe would have a huge interest to Anglicans.

 

 

A New Commentary on Holy Scripture Including the Apocrypha by Gore, Charles, Goudge, H. L., Guillaume, Alfred • Macmillan Company 1929

 

I lift the following blurb from another site--- "Praised by C. S. Lewis as “Probably the best single book of modern comment on the Bible,” A New Commentary on Holy Scripture Including the Apocrypha focuses on the spiritual understanding and application of the Scriptures. Written by a variety of respected Anglican scholars, and edited by Charles Gore, H. L. Goudge, and Alfred Guillaume, this collection was created in the spirit of progressive criticism and it comes to conclusions that differed widely from the accepted views of the day.The scholars dedicated to this work believed that the Apocrypha are extremely important as background for understanding the New Testament. Each author’s contributions reflect their unique views, often cross-referenced to one another where considerable differences of opinion arise. The text also includes clarifying footnotes by the editors. While the commentary offers some scientific and archaeological aspects, it’s the depth of its scriptural commentary that makes this a critical resource for any biblical scholar."

 

Again in the looking at older works, Speakers Commentary, F. C. Cook editor, is a 13 Volume 19th century work that might be of great value depending on the on the price, for we have access to older works but not in the Anglican thought. 

 

I mentioned these resources in particular because the works I am most interest in are works that are focused on study of the Bible, I mentioned the older 2 because I realize sometimes simply getting rights to do works is hard. Where as the last 2 are merely a matter of leg work and inputing (I know easier said than done, but with praise from C. S. Lewis I must admit I think this is an important 20th century work that should not be overlooked.

I was also 'encouraged' to get the oxford bible commentary, also edited by Barton and muddiman. (Thankfully my arm has now healed.)

I agree with Dan and I think it is mainly because the nrsv is used or referred to in Anglican texts.

My major criticism of the nrsv study bibles is that the cross references to other scripture readings are published in a separate volume, http://www.amazon.co...3&keywords=Nrsv

The Cambridge equivalent is also used.

http://www.amazon.co...rsv study bible

So if accordance do introduce these study bibles, can I put in a plea that they also incorporate the equivalent cross reference one at the same time.

But I bucked the trend and use the spiritual formation bible as it's still nrsv but a very different slant. (Still no cross reference though. But I do have my JB, NIV and esv study bibles with cross references though they only appear to have been included in the accordance ESv study bible and not in the NIV. )

I think some of the earlier Anglican works would be useful in Accordance format e.g. Cranmer's theological works on the Lord's Supper, as well as his earliest BCPs (e.g. the 1552). Ashley Null's work on Cranmer would be an ideal companion to them.Perhaps too the liturgical psalters that have been produced in conjunction with the BCPs. The Australian one by David Frost is a pretty good translation of the Psalms.

I wouldn't mind seeing some more Anglican works as well.

I looked at doing the 1662 BCP but there would need to be some format conversion due to the use of tables in the editions I have seen. If anyone finds a 1662 BCP that can be easily converted (i.e. a minimum of tables, graphics), please point me in that direction and I will work on getting it done.

 

The Oxford Annotated Study Bible would be great to have. I would prefer the 2nd edition over the last couple of editions.

The Oxford Bible Commentary would be nice also. That is a huge book to use in print and would be perfect for Accordance.

More N T Wright titles especially the Christian Origins series.

More J I Packer

John Stott titles

Christopher J H Wright

I would be interested but would not buy it if it contains either For Everyone NT-set by Wright (the OT set by Goldingay would be interesting though - but not the way Logos does it including it only in a too high-level base-package and including the NT-set) or Christian Origins series by Wright!

The RCL (and other lectionaries) would be great to have as devotional modules in Accordance.

Another thought would be that the User Tool would be much more useful if it would allow tables and/ or graphics.

 

Lection tables are difficult to create as it is now.

 

My dream for the User Tool would be creating your document in a word processor, save it as an .rtf or .doc file, and import it in Accordance-WHAMO-instant module.

Agreed, Greg! That would be a welcome enhancement.

 

I have RCL modules from the Exchange from a while back--are they no longer there?

They are user tools on the exchange, but I note Greg suggested them as devotionals, which they are not yet.

It won't benefit me, but I'm all for including more materials in Accordance if it improves the study process. The more the better, I say.
