Abram K-J My first contact with Accordance was in August 2012, when I reached out to them with a request to review Accordance 9 for my then relatively new blog. Unbeknownst to me, they were putting the finishing touches on Accordance 10, so I soon found myself downloading the Original Languages collection in the re-designed Accordance 10.

After an easy installation and setup (I can still see the dining room table where I sat), I was really impressed with what I called the “absolutely stellar” interface. I reviewed the app in a six-part (!) series.

Since then I’ve been using Accordance nearly every day. I’ve used it for personal devotions, seminary papers, weekly sermons, Sunday school, small group Bible study, theological inquiry, and much more. I moved from reviewer to customer almost right away. And since 2015 I’ve led a variety of online Webinars each month, sharing with other users my own excitement about the software and showing them how to put it to use.

Happy 25 years, Accordance! Here’s to (at least) 25 more.
