Dear Accordance,

I would very much like to see the critical Continental Commentary series for Accordance, especially:
  • 3 vol. set on Genesis by Claus Westermann
  • Leviticus by Jacob Milgrom
  • Ruth by Andrea LaCocque
  • 1 and 2 Kings by Volkmar Fritz
  • 3 vol. set on Psalms by Hans-Joachim Kraus
  • 3 vol. set on Isaiah by Hans Wildberger
  • and others
Does anyone know if Accordance is pursuing this? We have Hermeneia by the same publisher, so there is at least there is already a working relationship here!

Sincerely,

Jonathan C. Borland

Some places bundle it with hermeneia, so maybe Accordance might offer it as an upgrade for those with it.

We are pursuing a number of titles from Fortress including new Hermeneia vols., and I believe the Continental series as well.

I would like to add my voice for the Continental Theology set on Psalms by Hans-Joachim Kraus.

I know this hasn't been touched for awhile, but I would also like to give voice to my desire to see this set included in an Accordance module.

I do not mean to sound overly cynical, but I would not hold out too much hope. In the years that I have used Accordance I have requested numerous resources without having had any of those requests as yet answered. It would be nice to see this series if possible, as well as the ICC.

I wouldn't take it personally. Many times there are factors simply out of our control (ICC), or other factors that make it difficult to undertake certain titles. If you point me to a thread (or several) I can possibly give you more definite answers.

 

As far as Continental, I don't recall the exact situation; we can look into it again.

As I said in another thread from what I have heard in response in Logos forums and even the Olivetree forums. For whatever reason talks with publishers and software companies seem to move at a glacial speed. I know Accordance would love to have many things but it is a lot more than simply formatting the text and starting to sell it. In Accordances defence they have released a lot of items in the last year including  two huge sets,  Anchor and NIC... I hope the NIB gets released next. But the Anchor set is still being processed and I would expect nothing too much till after Anchor is fully released.

I am sure that Accordance is doing the very best it can to procure the best possible resources for its users.
