A Retro Review: John G. Fidel's Accordance 25 Story

I used to be a reviewer for Bible Software. In December 2006, I wrote my first Accordance review published on the  Bible Software Review website (Rubén Gómez’s former site). I was a Windows PC user and had no experience at all with Macs. As a result, my first experience with Accordance was using the Mac emulator on a PC. It emulated Mac OS System 7, it believe. I had read and heard so many great things about Accordance I had to try if for myself.

Here is a screenshot on my old Dell Inspiron that I fired up the other day:

Emulator on Dell

And here are my concluding remarks from my December 26, 2006 review

Here are a few of the areas that Accordance excels at:

  1. Searching. All the windows in Accordance are search based in design. They are consistent from window to window, text-to-text and tool-to-tool, which makes things easy to use. While it took some effort to learn how to use the software, experiencing the enjoyment that so often is expressed by most users of this program has been the reward. The Accordance Blog here has a good article on the learning curve. I would agree that the learning curve is not steep, there is just a lot to learn.

  2. Search Construction Boxes. For Windows users this would be comparable to a Graphical Search or Query. The search construction boxes are very simple yet powerful. There are some good examples of this feature on the Accordance Blog.

  3. Atlas and Timelines. These modules are very interactive, fun to use, yet appropriate for Biblical studies. Windows users will miss out on some of the more advanced features of the maps. Even so, the module is very well done.

  4. Design and efficiency. Every review I read discussed the superior design and efficiency in how Accordance integrates the Biblical texts with the tools. I found the program elegant and a joy to use.

  5. Customer service and product development. A review of the forums and user websites will show that the company has a passionate and loyal customer base. This is well deserved. I also noted that many of the suggestions being made by users on the forums were implemented in the latest upgrade. Clearly the company has customer satisfaction in mind.

I switched to Mac in 2008 and received an e mail from Helen welcoming me “from the dark side.” My concluding remarks still remain true: Accordance remains a very elegant product to use.


John G. Fidel is a CPA with Fidel, Perner & Michnovicz, LLC in Albuquerque, New Mexico. He has also served as a lay leader in various capacities over the years at Calvary Chapel Albuquerque.

Although Accordance was only available on Macintosh computers when John wrote his review in 2006, it is now available not only for macOS but also Windows, Android, and iOS/iPadOS.

Lost World_6 NEW! IVP's Lost World Series
(6 Volumes)
SUPER DEAL!

There are some historical or biblical issues that are inherently controversial—which is why they remain issues of debate. The books in the Lost World Series follow the pattern set by Bible scholar John H. Walton as they bring a fresh, close reading of the Hebrew text to an accessible discussion of the topic at hand.

The intention with the Lost World Series is not to offer the single "correct" interpretation of the given text. These books seek, instead, to provide an interpretation based on a conviction that the Bible is the Word of God—Scripture that speaks truly. The goal is not to convert the reader to the author's conclusions, or even to persuade the reader to adopt their way of thinking. Instead, this series seeks to bring information to the reader's attention that has helped the authors as they have struggled with the passages.

The Lost World Series (6 Volumes)
Regular Price $79.90
Sale Price $59.90

Note: This is a Custom Upgrade bundle so users who have purchased the previously-released volume of The Lost World of Genesis One can upgrade to the 6-volume set by using the Custom Upgrade pricing of this bundle.

NIVAC-Gen_120

NIV Application Commentary: Old & New Testament Bundle

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable—but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our present-day context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.

This bundle contains all of the Old and New Testament except for Ezra, Nehemiah, and Psalms 73-150.

A NEW Venue for Accordance Webinars: GoToStage!

GoToStage

Accordance users have long appreciated the focused training provided by our free hour-long webinars. Every week our customers can sign up for live interactive online instruction that takes a deep dive into Accordance subjects across a broad range of topics.

In the past, we’ve used GoToTraining, but recently, we switched to that company’s sister service, GoToStage because of added functionality for both us and our users. With our previous service, webinar attendees were able to access a video of the webinar they had just participated in to review steps and principles. With GoToStage, anyone will have access to any of the recent webinars through one integrated web page.

Linda Perry, our Accordance Training Specialist who coordinates our webinars, had this to say:

Making the move to GoToStage will give our customers the ability to view our entire list of recorded webinar titles at once and have access to any video any time of day or night. For people whose schedules limit live webinar participation, this access opens a new avenue of unlimited resources.

If you would like to watch any of our recent webinars, go to the Accordance Webinar Video Recordings page hosted by GoToStage. To look at a schedule of upcoming webinars, go to the Accordance Webinars page and click on the “check the listings” link.

Marrying into the Accordance Family: Jeremy Brannon's Accordance 25 Story

Jeremy & Allie Brannon

My journey towards discovering Accordance begins with a G3 iMac given to me by my parents in college for use in completing my degree at Florida State. Being a Mac person came in very handy when I met a young lady named Allie at our campus ministry who was also a Mac user and from time to time needed some minor tech support. I was only too happy to provide it, and soon began dating her.

In due course, I soon met Allie's mother, who worked for Accordance. She graciously gifted me a copy of Accordance 6 (I believe), and I had the opportunity to be introduced to the software by Roy Brown. As someone who was really enjoying Bible studies in campus ministry, I found even the simplest features useful and learned more of what Accordance could do.

I married Allie in 2004 and we moved to Altamonte Springs, Florida, where I taught high school English for three years. Eventually, I quit my job and learned of a job opening for Accordance Module Development. Once I learned what that meant, I was glad to pursue the opportunity to work for Accordance, where I now oversee all new module development for the company.

Accordance continues to surprise me with what it can do and as I pursue my own study of the Bible; it is a constant companion. That old G3 iMac served me very well: it helped me find a wonderful wife, a great job, and an excellent tool for Bible study!

Accordance 13 Sneak Peek #2: PDF Import

Acc 13 import PDF Accordance users have loved creating their own content that’s fully searchable and integrated into their personal Accordance Library through our User Tool feature. To date, we essentially offered five ways to get content into a User Tool: typing it by hand; copy and paste from another source; and importing HTML, plain text, or TLG files (if you had legal access to one of the older CDs).

Wouldn’t it be nice, though, if you could import PDF files? And wouldn’t it be great if the ability to import PDF files retained fonts, layouts, font sizing and styles, in addition to automatically creating verse reference hyperlinks? If you’re like me, you have thousands of PDF articles on a variety of subjects. Wouldn’t it be great to have a convenient way to import these kinds of files into Accordance?

I suppose one can always dream…


ICYMI: Contrary to the title above, this is technically the third sneak peek of Accordance 13. If you caught our social media posts on Wednesday, you might have noticed a screenshot containing a glimpse of multiple new features! If you haven't seen it, check us out on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Instagram.
