These are all good. Note that The Liturgy of the Hours is currently being revised. While I would like it in Accordance, I for one would like the upcoming revision (a few years hence).

How about Reading the Old Testament, Second Edition by Lawrence Boadt, CSP. The second edition has been revised and updated by Richard Clifford, SJ and Daniel Harrington, SJ. The publisher is Paulist Press.

Still think the New Interpreter's Bible will be an excellent resource for all… ecumenical but covering the full catholic canon, with many catholic contributors.

PS:My apologies for my anxious restatement of my desire to have this fine work in Accordance.

I too would love to have the Grail Psalter and The Liturgy of the Hours. It would also be nice to have the daily readings for mass.

Brett,

 

 

While you are waiting you might be interested in the RC Breviary/Prayer of the Church in www. universalis.com (I did not know how to make that into a link for you.) It does have the 'old' version of the Grail Psalms. For the other Scripture readings, I use the Jerusalem Bible version; I think there is the possibility of the RSV but I am not sure if there is an American Bible version. There is a new and revised version of the Grail Psalms (see www.giamusic.com/sacred_music/RGP/) but I do not know if they would be willing to release the etext  (if that is what it is called!). In fairness to the Accordance team, who already trying to prepare so many new resources, I cannot imagine there would be enough of us wanting the Grail Psalms to make it their worth while! I do have the 'old' version as a User Tool but I do not think I am allowed to share it on Accordance Exchange; I shall check it with Ken.

 

I do hope this might help yourself and others who might be interested.

 

Kevin.

 

 

 

Kevin.


Kevin.

I'm not Catholic (I think I would fall under the Vatican II classification of "separated brethren" :) ), but I would love to have the entire Anchor Bible series as well as the Birth/Death volumes by Brown. I've put the print copies of these to good use many, many times.

 

I will again bump up the request for these magisterial works by Raymond Brown, The Birth of the Messiah and The Death of the Messiah. Thanks!

Very good thing to bump I might not want everything that comes out in the Catholic field but I would be definitely interested in many of them. and Like I said earlier the New Collegeville Series would be great to see. And I would think it would inexpensive enough/useful enough to be an attractive purchase for most users.

I will second the request for Brown's Death of the Messiah and Birth of the Messiah.

Another desirable offering from the Anchor Yale Bible Reference series would be John P Meier's Marginal Jew. These are by Catholic authors, but well respected, top-notch scholars, well regarded beyond confessional boundaries.

 

I want to resurrect the request for these titles. Accordance already has Charlesworth's Pseudepigrapha from the Anchor Yale Bible Reference series. The volumes by Brown and Meier would be outstanding additions.

So many works with too few labouring aaa to get them into our hands I am afraid. Although I couldn't possibly afford to get everything I want if they all agically appeared on Accordance tomorrow.

True. And no time to use them all.

Even though the thread is styled "Catholic Resources," the works of Brown and Meier are not bound to that tradition alone. Both are scholars of ecumenical sensitivity and scholarly integrity.

 

Other volumes in the Anchor Yale Bible Reference series are worth consideration as Accordance module, as Rick suggests.

Just noticed you taking my name in vain here Kevin, I don't remember if you ever checked with me about the grail psalms. Did you? What did I say?

 

Anyway we can look at it as a user tool if you want (user bible)

Well, I got an answer on the Grail Psalms from the Grail Society (well their publishing agents anyway).

 

Their answer was "[we are] not able to grant permission as it would conflict with commercial licences that are in place."

 

So sorry, no Grail Psalms, neither the 2010 nor the 1963 ones.

That is a very disappointing turn of events. I have it on pre order from another company but I am very disappointed that they somehow managed to gain rights for it and possibly blocking others. I have known software companies to get exclusive digital rights in the past but in this day in age that feels like saying, 'We only sell through this store'.... only it is worse since we cannot go buy it at that store and read it in this Library. But I suppose it is too much to ask for a universal format that works on all platforms, oh for that magical day I could use all my resources in Accordance.

Yes it is disappointing Dan, but to be fair, I did not approach them about a commercial licence, I only asked about free distribution through the exchange. I don't have the authority to ask about a commercial licence, but if you make enough noise it might be looked into. That all happens out of the US and I am a long way from there!

 

Anyway, just thought I would set the record straight  :)

Well that is good to know....so little is offered for free distribution even though at times it would seem to be a Christian thing to do.... 

 

-Dan

PS:Even though I complained about the 10 upgrade price since I already owned the resources coming free, I will say Accordance does a great service by offering $400 of print Value (including many modern resources like ESV Strong's, Eerdmans Dictionary, and IVP New Bible Commentary). For $49. Accordance gives anyone a good start at an exceptionally affordable value. I see other people in the other forums stating how much they would like to be using the software but they can't afford their starter package. But I was not not going to say in their forum you should go over to Accordance.

That's so true Dan. On both counts. I don't know how we afford to do it to be frank, but that's not my area either.  :wacko:
