Before there was a native Windows version of Accordance, we offered the Mac version of Accordance through a Mac emulator. Gary Springer, an instructor and administrator of the Torah Resource Institute in Tacoma, Washington, has been using Accordance since those days! Hear Gary in his own words as describes how important Accordance is to him personally and professionally: “Accordance is the anchor for where I go to dig into the text, understand what the words are actually telling me—the language—and seek to apply that not only in my life but the life of my family and the students that I teach.”
Dr. Hershel Wayne House, a widely-published scholar and research professor at Faith Evangelical Seminary, is a long-time Accordance user. He says: “Accordance is the premier software for doing biblical research, in my opinion. There are a lot of great programs out there. Software is so important today. I can now do in a matter of seconds what could have taken me months to do at other points in my life… When you’re really going to study the Bible…the text itself, Accordance is at the top of the ladder… I tell every one of my students: you must have Accordance!”
Dr. John (Jack) Fish, Program Director for Biblical Languages, Emmaus Bible College, says: Accordance "is the easiest to use of any of the Bible search programs. It is intuitive; you don't have to go through a long learning curve... It's the Cadillac of the electronic search programs. It's not only the most powerful, but also the easiest to use... It's always been the best program for scholars."

You got to get it today!”
"I use Accordance every day that I teach... I like to recommend that students purchase it, and get acquainted with it, and use it in their studies. So, I'm glad for the improvements over the years. I've been using it since the '90s, I suppose... Thanks to Accordance for many years of excellent service and a fine product. Thank you!"
Dorian G. Coover-Cox serves as Associate Professor of Old Testament Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. Dr. Coover-Cox has been a part of DTS as a student, a teacher, and associate editor for Bibliotheca Sacra. Originally she came to the Seminary to become a better editor; she found, however, that what she enjoys most about editing is helping people learn. While still an editor, she has found her niche in the classroom as well, encouraging students as they learn Hebrew. She has special interest in the Book of Exodus and in literary analysis of narratives and poetry. http://www.dts.edu/about/faculty/dcoover-cox/
