Many have requested commentaries addressing different needs and tastes. I would like to throw the Anchor Yale Bible commentary series. I see that Logos has it. I am so invested in the Accordance platform (heavily and happily I may add), that Logos has no appeal to me.

Thanks for the consideration. God bless you for all you do!

Shalom,
Michael

We have been promised it, but these things take a long time.

Helen, thank you for a glimmer of hope. Does the promised include the Anchor Yale Bible Reference Series?

Hopefully individual volumes will be released as they are developed. Any chance we could see something this year?

We keep trying to contact Yale Publishing, but don't seem to be getting anywhere at present.

I sent the following to Yale University Press and would encourage other interested forum members to follow in kind:

I am not sure which department to address this, so I sending this to several. I am one of a large number of people who use a Macintosh program called Accordance, published by Oak Tree Software. It is a niche program for biblical studies, but is widely used by academics, clerics, and nonspecialist. In its forum, many have expressed interest in the Anchor Yale Bible (AYB) and related reference works (AYBR).They long have had the Macintosh Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary (AYBD).

I know AYB to be available electronically on the Logos software program, so clearly the electronic text exists. I would encourage and request that you work with the good folks at Oak Tree. There is a market there.

Thank you very much for your consideration.

That is most likely true but it may equally be true that Logos did the work of putting it into electronic format. I own it in Logos, it is not as useful as i had hoped, like all commentaries there are very strong and weaker volumes, more weaker than i care for but I am glad to have it. It will be a wonderful thing for Accordance to have if they can get it. I can not afford to duplicate all resources but I wish Accordance good luck on getting this one. The New Interpreter's Bible is what I am hoping for most, but I have heard they are working on getting it so :) .
