As the currently available Ancient Commentary on Scripture module is listed as volume 1 and does not include the entire series, I suspect additional volumes are in the works?

IVP are completing the ACCS and we will be reissuing the complete set when ready, but it's not immediate.

I'm formulating a plan where I sell off my hardcover copies of the Ancient Christian Commentary that take up an entire shelf in my office and replace them with a more-usable and space-efficient Accordance module. I gulped a little on this one from the Intervarsity site:

http://ivpress.com/c...ok.pl/code=2477

They are indicating an anticipated release date for the entire series by September 2010, but they are describing this as for the Libronix system. How does that compare with with current plans for Accordance to offer the complete series? My paranoia (and it is my unsubstantiated paranoia) in reading this is that IVP has dropped plans to offer the complete series through Accordance.

What an excellent plan! I know some of us professors sell such things to our students, then buy the electronic version for ourselves. Er, ah, at least that's what I've been told! ;-)

My understanding is that we will have the complete series through Accordance. However, you probably already know we don't like to announce such things very far in advance of our release dates. Part of it is that we have seen others advertise [and sell!] products faaaaarrrrr in advance of their actual release. We'd prefer your money stay in your pocket until we actually have the product available.

It also sometimes takes us a bit longer to bring a product to market than some of our competitors. Accordance modules often have more extensive hypertext links and other value-added features. It takes just a bit longer to code those things in.

Anyway, be at peace. We have a very good working relationship with IVP.

On Amazon, they appear to offer the complete set of ACCS as opposed to the incomplete one in the Accordance products library. Is the Amazon product for real or is the image in error (the image says "accordance edition" with the nice little Accordance logo).

SO... the Amazon one is in fact not for real, perhaps it has the wrong picture?

The Amazon page is for real, is our product, and will be 'in stock' when we finish it.

Hope this helps to clarify. :)

the version currently listed here includes volumes that weren't in the one i bought three years ago. and the one listed at IVP has more modules again. i appreciate there is a lot of coverage, but it seems that whenever i want to check ACCS it's in the uncovered gap (at least in my copy) from joshua to the twelve prophets!

so my questions:
how does/will the process work in upgrading?
will this be a downloadable upgrade or will it be a new purchase?

cheers

We are working diligently on it, and still plan to meet the July 2011 release reported on the IVP site.

Just looking around on the IVP site. They're now listing an available date of October 2011. I'm guessing this is the current expected release date through Accordance?

We've encountered some issues with the remaining few volumes, but it should not take until October. I haven't totally given up hope on July, but it's looking like we'll extend into August.

Just took a peek on the Intervarsity Press web site and see that we're now looking at a November 2011 release date. It's going on my Christmas wish list! (Soon followed by a fire sale of all my print copies... I really can use the shelf space in my office!)
