I was wondering if the Apocrypha is available for Accordance? It is on their website with a long explanation of their philosophy (http://www.bible.org/netbible/?

Thanks,
Greg

No we do not have the NET Apocrypha, as yet.

When the NET Bible Apocrypha is completed, it is something I would like to have in Accordance. I would have no problem paying for an upgrade to get it.

Even though the NET Apocrypha is not available, it might be worth noting that they are available in English (no doubt with variations in coverage and naming of books) in the following Bibles:

NETS (2007)
NRSV (1989)
RSV (1957, 1977)
Brenton (1851)
KJV (1611)
J. P. Kang, Ph.D. (Bible)

And, if I might add to this conversation, our staff Ph.D.s in Biblical studies have carefully examined the recently released Apocrypha for the English Standard Version that Oxford has produced and have firmly concluded the NET edition is definitely the superior text. And, the copyright holders of the NET edition have been much easier to deal with.
