Accordance 10 Roundup: Essential Collection
Essential Collection Overview
The Essential Collection is our first Collection to combine English Bible study resources with Greek and Hebrew tools. As a result, it is one of our most popular Collections. It combines everything in the Starter Collection, Bible Study Collection, and Original Languages Collection, then adds our 3D Atlas, interactive Timeline, and Bible Lands PhotoGuide. The resulting Collection is a diverse and extensive library full of Bible translations, commentaries, dictionaries, devotionals, Greek and Hebrew tools, interactive graphics, and more. The Essential Collection offers over $6,000 in print value, but it will only run you $499.99. Many Accordance 8 and 9 users also have custom upgrade paths to the Essential Collection, so be sure to check the Upgrades section below.
Essential Collection Video Overview
The Essential Collection includes every module in the Starter Collection, Bible Study Collection, and Original Languages Collection combined. I've already covered many of the standout modules in these Collections, so click on the respective images below to read those posts.
In addition to the modules in these Collections, the Essential Collection also adds three exciting new graphics tools, so I will focus on these modules for today's post.
The Accordance Bible Atlas is unlike anything else you will find in Bible software. While many Bible apps provide a set of static 2D maps, the Accordance Bible Atlas is fully interactive, allowing you to customize the display with different cities, regions, journeys, battle routes, and more. The journeys and routes are all animated, allowing you to see where biblical figures traveled. You can even select a custom area on the map to see a 3D view of the topography in that area. It's incredibly cool, and a great way to explore the biblical world.

The Accordance Timeline allows you to view timelines of ancient Israel, Egypt, Rome, Persia, Greece, Asia, Mesopotamia, and Aram. This is a great way to see what is happening in different regions of the Ancient Near East, comparing them side-by-side. For each of these timelines, you can view data sets for rulers, individuals, books, and important events. Creative types can even add their own user-created regions, people, and events. Best of all, the Accordance Timeline is fully interactive, allowing you to customize which regions and data sets are visible at any given time.

The Bible Lands PhotoGuide includes more than 1,600 high resolution images of the biblical world. These images are absolutely beautiful, and they really bring to life the cities and regions you read about in the Bible. While many of these images are from areas with high tourist traffic, the photographers were patient and careful to capture shots with little to no human presence. These full-color images are ideal for sermon and teaching slides, as you can copy and paste them into any PowerPoint or Keynote presentation.
