The new, powerful INFER command in version 8, and its Search Back corollary, have remained rather a mystery to many Accordance users. No longer! Dr. J's latest podcast explains step by step what INFER does and how to use it. Now you can take any passage or set of verses in any text, and find any similar phrases in another text or passage.

For example, find phrases in Isaiah that are similar to those in the Qumran scrolls, or in the Apostolic Fathers that are similar to Enoch. The possibilities are endless. And for the ordinary user, compare the poetry in Isaiah with the Psalms, or take a chapter and find any similar passages throughout the text.
