Writing is Easy

Someone once said, "Writing is easy. You just sit at the typewriter until you sweat great drops of blood."

I can relate. I've written six books (seven if you count the PhotoGuide), several articles, and numerous blog posts, yet I still find that writing never comes easily. This is especially the case when I'm busy with other responsibilities. I find that my creativity takes a dive and I become too impatient to stare at the blank page long enough for something useful to come out.

All that is to say that I'm sorry it's been a month since my last post to the Accordance blog. Contrary to a comment left the other day, this blog is not dead (neither, by the way, are CMUG and Bible Software Review); I've just been struggling to put pen to paper lately.

It's not that there hasn't been anything to write about. In recent weeks we've released the JPS Torah Commentary, and we're soon to release a new Jewish Collection CD-ROM. We've also released the new Catholic Study Bible and upgraded our Catholic Collection CD-ROM. And we've been doing a slew of free training seminars all over the country.

In the coming weeks, I'll have even more to write about, including a new Accordance update (with improved compatibility with OS X Leopard), a major evangelical commentary, a spate of new scholarly resources, and more.

So to paraphrase Mark Twain, "Rumors of this blog's demise have been greatly exaggerated." Look for more in this space on Monday, and I'll do my best to sweat great drops of blood over the weekend!

Today we also released the Jewish Study Bible, and David has had a major role in preparing most of these new modules.

Inquiring minds must know: What are the six books, David? Amazon has over a thousand when a search for David Lang is run...


A few years back, I ghost-wrote the first six books in a series called The Journey to Spiritual Maturity, published by a local mega-church. Each book was a summary of senior pastor Joel Hunter's year-long series of sermons. If you search for the series title, or pastor Hunter's name, you can find a few used copies on Amazon. :-)

Welcome back! This blog is a constant delight. Thanks for all your work invested in it, as well as in Accordance.
