In an age when multiple books tell us to look at the biblical world ...

Use Accordance for Biblical Language Classes (7 Strategies for Students #4)

August 21, 2017 - Richard Mansfield — Using a tool as powerful as Accordance Bible Software while learning a biblical language can be like walking a fine line: you want to harness the power and time-saving benefits of using Accordance, but you don’t want to shortcut the learning process, or worse become dependent on Accordance instead of actually learning the language. Let’s face it, studying any language requires a lot of memorization. And my own experience echoes what I’ve always heard—memory is like a muscle; the more you use it, the better it becomes. I remember that in both ...

Endorsement: Dan Wallace

August 19, 2017 - Accordance Bible Software — “A marvelous tool” is the description Dan Wallace, Senior Professor of New Testament Studies and Executive Director of the Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts, applies to describe his use of Accordance Bible Software going all the way back to 1992.

Three New Preaching Books from Weaver!

August 07, 2017 - Richard Mansfield — We don’t often think of preachers in the same class as politicians or lawyers—thank goodness! And yet all three professions place heavy use on public speaking and persuasion. The best communicators—regardless of profession—that I’ve personally known continue to hone their skills. Great preachers read other preachers’ sermons, and they regularly read good books about preaching and effective communication. Today, we are pleased to release three new books from Weaver Book Company that allow Accordance users to up their game when it comes to ...

NEW! Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible

July 10, 2017 - Richard Mansfield — Biblical Studies vs. Theology. This was the conflict I was introduced to in seminary. I’m not certain how my professors got along in the faculty lounge, but there was always a subtle rivalry between the departments. My Old and New Testament professors suggested—albeit subtly—that theology, as a discipline (if there even was such a thing), was bogged down by centuries of dogma and disputes that obscured the "true" meaning of the Scriptures. All one really needed was the simple biblical text and nothing else. On the other hand, my theology ...

NEW! The Preacher's Commentary (35 volumes)

June 26, 2017 - Richard Mansfield — Perhaps you’ve heard the sentiment often repeated by seminary students: the sermon you preach in your seminary class you wouldn’t dare preach in your church, and the sermon you preach in your church you wouldn’t dare preach in your homiletics class. Unfortunately, there’s often a great amount of truth to this. To be certain, I’ve sat through student sermons that seemed to aim more at the academic hall than the average church setting for which I’ve been familiar. And, of course, sermons preached in a classroom often (but not always—who am I to ...
