The first review (Dr. Comninos) was helpful for me. I purchased the REB because several of the 1 Corinthians commentaries (circa 1980) I was reading at the time refer to the NEB. I have also found that more recent authors will occasionally refer to the NEB because of a novel take on a passage. I assumed the REB (which is all that accordance offers) would suffice for checking references but I have been disappointed. Many passages have been changed from the NEB as quoted in my books and no one ever refers to the REB. The translation is fine but I am more interested in the un-revised version. I would love to see accordance release a module that lets the user see both, or footnotes the changes or something. I was interested in the early, potentially flawed version for research purposes and the REB doesn't solve the problem.
