Is this set worth buying? It is on sale for about $50 for the next two days...please leave some feedback if you have some experience using this. 


Shalom! In Christ, Keith.

I can hardly find any negative reviews on this work across the internet. It seems that users from all streams and denominations really enjoy this material for both devotional use and as a preaching resource.  At $50 it was simply too good to overlook.  The lectionary layout will take a a wee bit of getting used to, but the content that I've seen so far looks outstanding.  I'm especially glad that the scripture commentary will run in parallel with the info-pane, though I've worked out that if there is more than one lectionary article on that particular text, that only the first one will show up.  I just need to remember to do a FOW research on the relevant verses.

Only complaint i have against it and it is an extremely mild one, several times I felt some of the contributors were a wee bit too calvinistic for my tastes... But I have found it to be one of the most useful commentaries out there it is said it covers not the whole bible but only the lectionary sections but most every book of the Bible is touched on and sometimes like Psalm 23 many more than just once. It also can be frustrating if the passage who are studying is connected to say Christmas or another holiday, in that the focus is going to be how does this passage connect with our Christmas celebrations. But all in all I would not want to be without it and very happy to own it in Accordance.
