The latest podcast is Dr. J''s advice on how to build a good pastoral library, whether you are self-taught or seminary-trained (and, yes, the two libraries have some important differences). Preparing sermons doesn't have to be a chore, provided you have the right resources to mine for good information.

  • Location:Northern Europe. Inter/multidisciplinary Humanities that have something to do with sustainability or correct comprehension of Ancient Peoples and today's macro-societal structures, including: 6th Millennia BC, 2nd-15th Centuries AD, History of Ideas, History of 1902-1945, 1975-1982, 1988-1994, and dressing in reenactment clothing. Using LSJ for the Ancient Gk corpus (skipped BrillDAG since I couldn't afford it and it never in a reasonable amount of time made it under Accordance). Ethics for divorced men; taking money out of circulation in society (a good thing) by paying off loans and checking account faster; propagating price-deflation of US exports goods; opera; guiding; electricity production by nuclear power; all of Reformed, LDS, Catholic and Maria Magdalene cult. Materials Sc.
  • Interests:The one existing installation (any devices/platforms) is 11.2.5 on an AMD A9 Dual Core laptop in a young scholar's hands, the software is in a balanced way using the speed that laptop can give it; and this config loads my books, uses slightly less battery than 12 would (which I do own the Basic Starter of under my account). 11 had a great Info Pane, partial download of Collections had already become possible, all settings that are needed for text preferences, both custom and assistive library sorting, Research, efficient and within the UI scalable use of the whichever monitor area You dedicate to it. I've got several extra Accordance 12.3.7 software licenses to gift - still have Nov. 14.-23. '19 - Jan. 1. - May 16. '20 and most likely for a good while still, multiple copies left beyond July '20 (just feel free to PM me if You want me to give one to get You up and running)! Developer team responsively and within what there is demand for adds new core functionality, turning into reality specialised type of modules, f.e. the recent Targums Wordmap. I'm skipping version 13 (for any others it will be of excellent though) and going straight to 14 whenever in 2022 it is released, and I want it to have any major expansion in History of Ideas or other Sciences at some of its point upgrades, at latest in 2024 in time for my authoring project, preferrably by introducing the 1911 Encyclopaedia Britannica to offline use

That is a GREAT podcast Timothy, thanks for making it. I agree on it. Might want to post it on the first page viewed by people just finding the Accordance site! (Watched it last Week during a night):

provided you have the right resources to mine for good information.

Great Video Dr J. It might have been worth mentioning that Accordance offer a regular 10% discount to those in full-time ministry, (with the exception of sale items).

Or, anyone can get a 15% discount at any time simply by participating in a webinar :-)

Thanks as always.

I appreciate you have to be selective but for me, The Commentary on the New Testament Use of the Old Testament should also be in everyones library along with comfort.

I was totally unaware of these two volumes and i cannot stress enough that its thanks to this forum (and sales where resources are given focus) over the years that has highlighted what is actually available to help me develop a library.

Hi, Fraser!

 

I thought about it, but there are so many other good niche resources, it's hard to pick and choose. The Parallel OT in NT does provide a lot of insight and is included with out collections.
