Free Updates and Sale Prices

In the past few days, we've released a number of free module updates, as well as offering discounts on select modules.

Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary has been updated to include page numbers and a browser which reflects the volume divisions of the print edition. Previous versions of Anchor had page number information at the beginning of each article, but did not have actual page numbers presented throughout the text. Anchor is currently on sale for just $199.

Context of Scripture has undergone a major upgrade with the addition of page numbers and extensive hyperlinking. It too is currently on sale.

Other free updates include updated tagging of the works of Philo, as well as extensive improvements to our various rabbinic modules.

In addition to Anchor and Context of Scripture, two other items are currently on sale. The Essential IVP Reference Collection continues to be one of the best values we offer in terms of high-quality dictionaries, commentaries, and other reference works. The current sale price works out to be less than ten dollars per volume.

Finally, Walt Kaiser's History of Ancient Israel is also on sale. I've written previously about how helpful this volume is as a companion to the Accordance Timeline.

So there you have it, if you already own these modules, You can enjoy free updates to many of them. If you don't already own them, now's the time to get them for less.

Thanks so much for the addition of page numbers. This is very much appreciated as I still often write for those who want to know exactly where to find something in the original books. 

Of course, my physical copy of Anchor will now get even less use, but that's okay :-)


PS. Ironically, my verify word for this comment is "unvalued." Not true at all--these updates are extremely valued!

We are working to add new Zondervan and IVP titles, but these things do take time, both to negotiate and then to develop.

Thank you Helen for the good news!

I really am looking forward to seeing the Zondervan pack. UPDATED, and I agree with J.T. the Pocket...Bib. Heb. would be a pleasure to have.

Happy New Year!!!!
