From the iPhone to the Desktop: Kevin Sullivan’s Accordance 25 Story
I was ﬁrst introduced to Accordance via the Accordance app on my iPhone several years ago. There were other bible apps out there, and I used them frequently, but my “go to” app was always my Accordance Library when I needed to dig a little deeper into something.
Then, about two years ago, it became evident to me that my old PC was nearing its end, and the old bible software I had been using for decades years was going to die with it. It served me for many years, but it was time to upgrade and move on. I researched many bible software packages and each had their own good qualities. Some were very powerful, but they also came with a very powerful price tag. Accordance, on the other hand, seemed to have a well-balanced set of powerful tools, good references, and it all came at an affordable price.
No doubt I could spend $1,000 or more to accumulate every possible add-on to Accordance, but for my purposes of sermon preparation and teaching Sunday School, a basic Accordance package has more than met my needs. A big bonus for me was the fact that with my purchase, I can use it on both a Mac and a PC. As with any software package, it’s taken me a bit of time to find my way around and to get used to all of the bells and whistles, but I’m well-pleased with Accordance, and I know that anytime I need something, if help isn’t available within the software itself, technical support is just an email or a phone call away. Support has been fast and reliable.
I hope I can reap the beneﬁts of the Accordance Bible software for another 25 years. Happy Anniversary!
