Resources You'll Only Find in Accordance

Squared Accordance 11 logo Here at Accordance, we love to talk about the unique things the Accordance application can do: powerful search features like the INFER command, the unparalleled flexibility of the Atlas, the graphical elegance of the Construct window, etc. We don't often focus on the resources that are unique to Accordance: that is, the books and databases you can only get from us.

One reason for that is that in the early days of Bible software, many Bible programs competed on the basis of the books they included rather than on the features they offered. Users who wanted a particular commentary might have to buy Program A in order to get it, but then they would have to do without a popular Bible dictionary, because it was exclusively available for Program B. In such an environment, the "best" Bible programs were not the ones with the best interface or search engine, but the ones who could negotiate and secure the most licenses from book publishers.

While all that was going on, Accordance was quietly pioneering unique features and powerful capabilities that had never before been seen in Bible software. We therefore naturally preferred to talk about our software engine rather than the books we had licensed. Ironically, because we started out exclusively on the Mac, we were able to license resources from a wide variety of publishers who had licensed their resources exclusively to one program or another on the Windows side. Consequently, we were able to offer that commentary you could only get with Windows Program A and that dictionary you could only get with Windows Program B.

Thankfully, book publishers now tend to license their books to multiple Bible software developers, so users are more free to pick the program which best meets their needs rather than the one with the particular books they need.

Nevertheless, there are still some resources which are exclusive to Accordance, either because we created them ourselves, or because we have cultivated relationships with publishers who for whatever reason have not yet licensed their books for use with any other Bible software.

Why should you care about these resources which are "exclusive" to Accordance? Simply because they are some of the coolest resources we offer. Look through the list below and you'll find resources with stunning visuals, cutting-edge scholarship, unique perspectives, and even one that takes advantage of a special feature of the Accordance application.

Get these resources, and you'll be amazed at how they can help you in your study of the Bible. Oh, and your friends will be amazed when you show them one more way that the grass really is greener on the Accordance side!
