I decided to try the One Year Bible for reading the ESV Study Bible. I want to read it in Accordance, but there's no user tool that has the readings. I discovered and interesting and useful feature of Accordance when experimenting.

Go to the One Year Bible web site:

http://www.oneyearbi...;startmmdd=0224

and select one day's readings, and copy the verse references. For instance, the readings for Jan 1 :

Genesis 1:1-2:25
Matthew 1:1-2:12
Psalm 1:1-6
Proverbs 1:1-6

Now paste those verse references into the argument entry box in an Accordance search window. Make sure that you have the window set to search for verses, not words. The Bible text pane magically shows just the scripture references for that day's One Year Bible readings.

I have a workspace set up for reading that has the ESV text on the left and the ESV Study Bible on the right, and I size this window to full screen to minimize distractions when I'm reading. The second tab has just the ESV Study Bible. I use that tab for navigating to and reading the introductory material for each book and the other articles in the ESV Study Bible.

Or you could go to the Daily Readings module included with every level of the Accordance Library, and select the date you want from the Devotional Arrangement. Then command-click any of the links to read them all. :)

Learn something new every day, especially with Accordance. :) Is that command-click trick documented anywhere? Does it open all of the links in one line?
