Two books I use extensively as reference tools for Old Testament study are the classic work Ancient Israel by Roland DeVaux, and The Dead Sea Scrolls Bible by Abegg, Flint and Ulrich.

In the area of Acts and the Pauline corpus I would love to have a digital copy of Conybeare and Howson, The Life and Epistles of St. Paul, hypertexted and usable within Accordance.

Is there any chance these might become Accordance modules? :rolleyes:

By the way, although there exists a scanned version of Conybeare & Howson, which is at the base of the Amazon viewable samples online, the scan was not properly edited, and because of the degraded state of the printed text scanned, there are too many errors. This is, of course, not an insurmountable obstacle, but clearly the Amazon group (or whoever they farmed the task out to) didn't think it worth the trouble for their purposes to edit the scans. The display (image scans) online are, of course unaffected, but the text used for searching its contents is ragged. There must be better scans out there.
