Hi everybody,

 

I've been debating for a while now whether to purchase Accordance or not. There are so many things I like about it that I could see myself investing quite heavily into it over time, but it is lacking in one crucial area—koranic studies.

 

You see, I do not differentiate between the books of the Bible and the Koran. For me it is essentially one book, the Koran a book of the Bible. So you can imagine what it's like needing to reference one without the other. It is the same as if you offered only the Old Testament and not the New Testament. It is a deal breaker.

 

I cannot see how investing in this area with time and money would not yield a profit. It doesn't have to be extensive, just the Arabic text and a few translations. If you had merely that I would for sure buy Accordance along with friends and family. And I should point out there is no platform ATM offering koranic studies.


Please delete this but forgot I already had asked with another thread

. . . just the Arabic text and a few translations . . . there is no platform ATM offering koranic studies.

 

If it helps, Logos offers the The Qur'an (Arabic) at https://www.logos.co.../2571/the-quran and

The Qu'ran (English) at https://www.logos.co.../2570/the-quran , and, of course, many Bibles in many languages.

We have the "Qu'ran (Pickthall Translation)" listed under User Tools in the exchange.
