Good afternoon,

A commentary that would make a great addition to Accordance would be the Smyth & Helwys Bible Commentary. This is available from Smyth & Helwys publishing house. They should have an existing e-text since you receive a CD-ROM containing the entire text and all the pictures of the volume. The website for the commentary is http://www.helwys.com/commentary/.

I agree. I already own two of the commentaries. One of the big advantages of the CD-ROM is that a lot of art is included which I find useful in illustrating Bible studies.

These would be great to have available individually. I have Revelation and Matthew in print copies.

I've seen some of the Smyth & Helwys commentaries online, and wonder if they would make a good purchase.

Can anyone more familiar with them please comment on their use, e.g. devotional/exegetical/textual/personal/scholarly etc.

Thanks!

Any more interest in Smyth and Helwys?? Any comments?

I have all of the Smyth and Helwys volumes. They are are well-organized and informative. One draw back is that they do not contain a translation of the Scripture upon which they are commenting. Of course, this is easily remedied by have a Bible handy when using the commentary. I'm not sure that I would be interested in purchasing these volumes in Accordance though. I have the CDs loaded on my computer. I'm not sure that there is much advantage to having the same texts in Accordance.

Just now using the volume on Luke in preparation for preaching on Mary and Martha. Good stuff so far--I'd be interested in these for Accordance.
