Accordance 13 Sneak Peek #1: Search All Fields

September 27, 2019 - Richard Mansfield — Rumor has it that there might be a new version of Accordance for Windows and macOS on the way.

Can't imagine being a Christian without Accordance: Jeremy Archer's Accordance 25 Story

September 27, 2019 - Accordance Bible Software — I first began using electronic Bible study software sometime around 2000. If I recall correctly the first software I used was e-Sword.
