I'm glad you included pictures of the staff in the newsletter. It's a nice personal touch, especially since many of us have interacted with many of you. Thanks for all of your hard work and the great products.

I'll be definitely doing some shopping from that list before month end. I have some things in mind that will do some damage to my bank account. :-)
God Bless,

Yes, both of these resources are compatible with the iPad app.

Let us know if you have any other questions…

Great, Thanks. These is two of my favorite language resources in another software program but their iPad app doesn't work well when I'm somewhere without an internet connection.

Hi, Rick,

To take you up on asking more questions if we have them... $129 for this set seems like a good deal.

I have (in various forms) TLNT (Spicq), TLOT (Jennie-Westermann), BDAG/HALOT, and "Big Kittel"/TDNT.

I understand that they all do different things, and that probably for an academic article or paper, consulting all of them is the way to go. And I've generally seen favorable reviews of NIDNTT and NIDOTTE.

But I guess my question is--is an "all of the above" mentality the way to go with the above resources? What does NIDNTT/NIDOTTE offer that the above resources don't? What are its distinctives, etc.? Is there anything in particular about this module in Accordance that makes it worth owning in this format? (Besides Accordance's general awesomeness, of course...)

From my review posted last year on the accordance site:

The New International Dictionary of New Testament Theology (NIDNT) by Colin Brown is one of my favorite Greek lexicons in Accordance. First of all, as the title indicates, it is a theological lexicon. While Accordance can find a particular lemma in a split second, the resource itself is indexed by word groups. This is similar to the TDNT, only the resource includes up-to-date research and archeological findings.

The NIDNT is indexed both in Greek and English, which is a feature other lexicons do not provide. In fact, back when I purchased this resource it was grouped as an English Tool rather than a Greek Tool. The resource was updated and is now in the Greek Tools. I find the historical and theological focus on the word groups greatly compliment my other two favorite lexicons: BDAG and Louw Nida. The entries are thorough, yet very readable for the non-scholar. I have the full 10 volume TDNT and actually prefer this set in most instances.

I have a review on the NIDOTTE as well if you want to check it out by clicking on the resources from the accordance site and then reviews. I find these resources similar in focus to the TWOT and TDNT only updated and easier to access if that assists you in your decision. The sales price is a very good value if you need these books for your studies.

I agree. BDAG, LN and NIDNT are my top three.

Great to see the current sale on NIDNTT and NIDOTTE. Fantastic value. Is there any chance that you could also reduce the individual prices so that those of us who have just one (I have NIDNTT but not NIDOTTE) still benefit from the sale?

I just got the abridged NIDNTT but for this price.... I am going to be hard pressed to not get this package deal. Just buying the NIDOTTE to add to the abridged NIDNTT would cost 149 alone regular price. Steal of a deal for both. :-)
God Bless,

Me too. I have this in another format, but am considering getting it while it is on special. What is the cost of this normally?

Just bought Schaff's History and the Church Fathers! I was about to buy them on hardback but I really wanted to be able to search them and this is so cool. So glad I bought it!

I'm already kicking myself for not buying at least two things that were on sale at the end of the year (IVP reference, HALOT)... that was a great sale! Looking forward to a next one, whenever that may be...thanks for doing those from time to time.
