Just for the record, CNTTS is $99 normal price...so definitely not $200!  :)

I'm currently considering whether I should make any further investments in Church history and theology resources. Particularly under consideration is whether I should get a multi-volume work on Church, or whether I should narrow down my forthcoming library investments:

If you're interested in theology, you might enjoy the writings of the church fathers

 

 

 

 

Now I saw this alarming post: http://www.accordanc...ic=8436&p=37282 ... it's as I thought. Updating the software will cost aproximately as much as I thought. I would need to update Accordance at least 3 times. At ~$70 a time, that would be $210 during a lifetime of 24 years.

 

 

 

I would also be glad if I get replies in: NIDNTT as dictionary (only Starter and UBS Handbook)? Reply there.

Going to teach myself the asq -programming language. /June 16. 2015
Installing OS X 10.11 El Capitan (one year membership $99) this Weekend at the end of June 2015 on my 2007 Macbook Pro with motherboard changed when it was 4 years old, disks changed as well: main drive 256 GB SSD, two new batteries. The 6 GB RAM and the two USB 3.0 ports for it (the latter through ExpressCard slot) just arrived this afternoon. /June 17.
Gathering a large package of free books in a Bible Study software the night between June 28. and 29. 2015 by letting the private person who sold me the Mac download by cable both on my Mac and a Windows 7 laptop I have) and organize them, and that's on as few computers as possible.
This Summer 2015 I will use all of July-August for studies in order to catch up with Theology and to begin Hebrew, language class starts towards the end of August.

Not to quibble, but the last several upgrades (e.g. Accordance 9 to Accordance 10; also 8 to 9) was $49.99 ($59.99 for 7 to 8) and such upgrades are always major. Yet 10.0 to 10.1 to 10.x has always been no cost, and many times includes major improvements. The initial purchase for 10 is $49.99 for new users, so your $70 may be high (though inflation could kick in).

I would be updating at least 3 steps at a time:

The updates are up to you - we never force people to update.  People can still happily use Accordance 5 and their old content if they want.  But, if you choose to pay for an update your computer or OS that isn't compatible with the older software, you may also have to update Accordance.  But, thats your choice, we will never force anything.

Yeah I know, I had that in mind:

I would be glad if I get more opinions on the UBS Handbook - whether it's a good purchase, and which dictionary to add?

In addition to that: what lexicon should I add?

 

I'm a very big fan of the UBS Handbooks. My favourite lexicon is BDAG.
