Flexibility & Capability: John Galle's Accordance 25 Story

March 08, 2019 - Accordance Bible Software — The primary reason I became a Macintosh user: Accordance. In 1998, I was living outside the continental United States in the Navy, and my daughter started college in Indiana. I was using a Windows computer and tried to upgrade it to do e-mail; it was a disaster. About that time I wrote to Dave Powlison, a professor I had while at Westminster Theological Seminary. Dave told me he was using Accordance on his Macintosh. I’ve never regretted using Accordance. Sales and support people have always been friendly and responsive. Great bargains at ...

"Check It Out!" David Lang's Accordance 25 Story

February 28, 2019 - David Lang — “Someone's going to be demoing this new Bible program for the Mac during lunch. You should come check it out.” David (same first name as mine!) was one of the three other guys who had survived the high attrition rate of our seminary's “Academic Hebrew” class. He was also an avid Mac user who had been “evangelizing” me ever since I happened to mention that I was looking to buy a computer. What better way to convince me of the Mac's superiority than to show me a new Bible study program designed exclusively for Macintosh computers? Our seminary ...

NEW! Holman Illustrated Study Bible

February 04, 2019 - Richard Mansfield — Some of the shepherds of the faithful, however, have too often closeted themselves in dim libraries, speculating about the redaction of texts and raising questions about the believability of the gospel stories. Only recently, with renewed attention to the physical remnants of first-century Palestine and the evidence of Jewish religion of that period, has the withering “quest for the historical Jesus” been abandoned, and a new flowering of “Jesus studies”—exploring culture, language, and place—begun. In gray winters of the Teutonic North, the ...

New! Decker's Koine Greek Reader

January 21, 2019 - Richard Mansfield — Koine (from the Greek κοινός) refers to the style of ancient Greek in the late Hellenistic period. Koine is most often associated with the kind of Greek language found in the New Testament, but it also can characterize a wider body of literature including the Septuagint (LXX) and Early Church writings, among others. A little over three years ago, we released Reading Koine Greek: An Introduction and Integrated Workbook by Rod Decker (see also our "Closer Look" at this title). This had been a posthumous release after Decker’s untimely passing a ...

Writing Seminary Exegesis Papers with Accordance

January 11, 2019 - Ryan Mudge — One of the most important tasks for a seminary student to learn is to learn how to exegete the Bible, especially in the original Greek and Hebrew. Few things are more important for those in training for ministry than to know how to rightly interpret the Scriptures. I had the responsibility of writing an exegetical paper on 2 Corinthians 5:11-15 for my Greek Exegesis class this past semester. Part of what made the task a joy instead of a burden was using Accordance for researching and writing the paper. I couldn’t imagine doing this work ...
