Updates are better than they used to be, but they are still very confusing. If you are an "old" Accordance user (6.x, 7.x, 8.x, 9.x) it is even more confusing. If you have invested a lot over the years, it is difficult to remember all you have and be certain you won't lose something or pay for something again. I am not sure what can be done about it though.

Updates are better than they used to be, but they are still very confusing. If you are an "old" Accordance user (6.x, 7.x, 8.x, 9.x) it is even more confusing. If you have invested a lot over the years, it is difficult to remember all you have and be certain you won't lose something or pay for something again. I am not sure what can be done about it though. Perhaps a dated coded unique ID that is assigned to each module and a way of listing all the modules and cross checking between the website and the program and saving a spreadsheet report that can also be printed... this sounds like a lot of work. I try to keep up, but I do not feel confident I haven't lost something obscure to me or seldom used or paid for twice. For now, it is the way it is... not that I like it or defend it as it is.

This email is not only a review, but also an explanation (limited by my understanding of such things) that may help EOT M with his/her concerns.

I have had Accordance for a number of years now and have not found any problems with the KJV modules. I am not a KJV expert so it would be nice to have one comment here regarding any issues they might find.

I have had Accordance for a number of years now and have not found any problems with the KJV modules. I am not a KJV expert so it would be nice to have one comment here regarding any issues they might find.

As to Accordance or any other s/w company charging for the KJV, it is similar to the printer of a KJV paper Bible charging for the Bible. They have to provide salaries for those who do the work and cover the cost of the production. Here the cost is not for paper, but maintenance like storage, corrections, tagging improvements, and transmission. The KJV is free except for the costs that fall under the biblical concepts of 'not muzzling the ox' and the 'workman being worthy of his wages' and similar passages. another way to look at it is to remember that those who received the Gospel from full time 'workers' in God's field were encouraged to share their worldly goods with those who labored for their eternal good. The pastor and evangelist shares God's good news freely and others help by supplying the 'double honor' the Apostle Paul speaks of. Although Accordance as the text free, they are not necessarily charging of the KJV so much as the Accordance s/w itself and of course the aforementioned maintenance. I hope this helps you better understand the costs.

My prayer is that this will help you and that Accordance and others who offer such tools with the Word of God will be able to do so more and more inexpensively. May God richly bless you and use us all that others might know and accept His great gift of love, Jesus His only Son. Jude 24-25
