I am joining this discussion late, but thought I'd share my thoughts.


Yes, I'd recommend upgrading to Accordance 10's Starter Collection. The program is significantly better and the collection includes a lot of things that Starter 9 does not. Specifically, it includes Eerdmans Bible Dictionary (which has already been mentioned) and the Mounce Greek and M/K Hebrew dictionaries. These two original language dictionaries are far better than Strong's, especially if you are going to be focusing on the Greek. In addition, I'd encourage you to purchase the Mounce Complete Expository Dictionary of Old and New Testament Words (http://www.accordanc...unce Expository). It's only $29.99 and it is well-integrated into the two basic lexicons I already mentioned.


Even better, consider purchasing the Mounce Greek Study System for Accordance (http://www.accordanc...ounce System-10). At $159.99 (it's on sale now), I imagine it will be less expensive than taking a class somewhere. Besides, it includes his expository dictionary [already mentioned] and his really helpful translation of the NT.


NIDNTT is good, as are the UBS Handbooks for the NT. However, if you are just learning Greek you may find them both a bit overwhelming.


All these tools are for biblical (Koiné) Greek, which is quite a bit different from classical Greek. Personally, I'd recommend starting with biblical Greek. It's much easier and the tools are considerably less expensive.


Hope this helps!

I've changed my mind about NIDNTT, currently I think I would like to have Exegetical Dictionary of the New Testament. http://www.accordancebible.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=7356

I don't think I want to pay $28 shipping just to get Eerdmans! See email conversation below.

Shipping & Handling is needed at this time for any of the 10 collections
if they are to be installed in Version 9 for non-Mac Users.

Hope this is helpful,

Hi Unix, the Eerdman's Bible Dictionary should come as a free module when you upgrade to 10. At least that's my understanding (along with others like the ESV with Strong's)

Please SEE THIS recent LINK about Bible versions: https://www.christia...curate.7926578/
Moffatt version that I find I can focus on in the commuter traffic for more devotional reading - I also have the commentary set: https://www.christia...-bible.7618350/
And NPP and English translations and commentaries as well as as a bit about learning the original languages: https://www.christia...posts/72219172/

I think the best Accordance base is to buy HALOT (and BDAG) used, and then upgrade to Hebrew Pro. I have never bought a Collection with actual content but am holding on to the working configuration I have so far and am going to buy version 13 Hebrew Pro. /Apr. 6. 2018 - the very last day it was possible to get (if having contacted while the sale lasted) version 12 at 35% off + individual upgrade pricing:
I'm growing only my Accordance and print libraries (EDIT March 28. 2018: I now really have quit altogether placing new orders elsewhere) and printed matter nowadays only through the sites biblio and alibris. I also occasionally duplicate things, depending on price. I don't buy Collections/base-packages at all, to me an OK print library is a Collection/base-package and is bragging-rights, a mid-size Collection would not be!! Books copyrighted in the most recent Years (2011 and later) have to be truly exceptional for me to buy them - this is a strategy I'm going to stick to. I very rarely have to add any lexicons or Bible Dictionaries, I access them wherever, under Accordance I have bought HALOT and BDAG used. Otherwise I prefer BAGD actually which I have under L6.9. The best One-Volume Bible commentary is Oxford Bible Commentary.
NAB70 OT and L6 functionality including Chineze (which I don't speak/read) under spare account.
The Oxford Bible Commentary under other one pretty large current account that is the one I actually use. /Oct. 16. 2017 Edited Jan. 14. 2018. My current comparison March 20.-21. 2017 of two laptops: https://community.lo...520.aspx#891520
 ... and compared to the AMD laptop I used to have, things like speed and battery life
yesterday was 2 years since I returned from an archaeological trip to Turkey. /Apr 16. 2016 A bit of interest in Akkadian or Babylonian. /Apr. 2016
Besides my Macbook referenced below I have a few Windows, among the toughest I have are: 4GB (upgrading to 16 GB) W7 i3 3110 3rd gen Ivy Bridge (since it's W7 Professional and huge battery that actually can be gripped while carrying it open) - on which I have Accordance 10. | Until a Year ago I had: 8GB W10 AMD FX-7600P (since it's AMD:s best laptop CPU - I LOVE AMD) it had the slightly overkill AMD R7 270DX 2GB graphics, it was bought new on Oct. 30. (tomorrow from 
Örebro by train) 2015 marked down a bit as it was a returned item (not on a sale). My desktop has the excellent value for money G2030 CPU Ivy Bridge - currently I'm not using internet in it, it's the one on which I have Accordance 12 Starter installed. /March 28. 2018
For emailing, discussion- and dating- sites I have a very old laptop: Core 2 Extreme CPU, 4 GB RAM, Vista, SSD, old batteries and wanting to get one new battery, out of Bible Study softwares I'm only going to use Accordance (12 Starter) on it. /April 2018 installation of Windows:

Was on a vacation in Germany by car July 21. - Aug. 1. 2014 relaxing, evangelizing a little, while studying.

This one is waiting for yet another motherboard change and I'm not sure it will get done IF everything continues the same: OS X 10.11 El Capitan 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. 2015
