I've heard that Murray Harris is working on additional volumes to his Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament (EGGNT) to supplement his single volume on Colossians and Philemon. I would imagine that this series, assuming it becomes one, would make an excellent addition to Accordance, especially for intermediate Greek students and pastors working to keep up their Greek. Having the GNT-T, BDAG, and Harris' volume all in one window would be really, really slick for continuing to learn the language and syntax. The fact that one could then search the LXX, look at Metzger or Comfort for text critical analysis, and so forth either because Harris directs you to or because of your own interest would, obviously, be a great example of Accordance's power for Greek students and pastors who continue to learn and study with the Greek NT close by.

Just a thought.

Has anyone else here used Harris' volume on Colossians and Philemon?

I've not used Harris' works. By skimming through it in the amazon viewer, it does seem like a resource that is apropos for Accordance. I also would like to see many of the resources that SIL (especially the Exegetical Summary Series) publishes become part of the Accordance offerings. Another similar resource is Zerwick's Grammatical Analysis of the Greek New Testament. Zerwick's interaction with the text is not as extensive as that of Harris' or Exegetical Summary. Another similar resource is GNT-Keys (Accordance parlance) formally entitled, The New Linguistic and Exegetical Key to the Greek New Testament.

Of course, there are some other great resources in this genre that would be a delight to have for iOS and Mac Accordance. For example, Perschbacher's Refresh Your Greek, is a another practical help for consultative reading. Or, Moulton and Milligan's, The Vocabulary of the Greek New Testament: Illustrated from the Papyri and Other Non Literary Sources, is another highly desired resource for lexical studies.

I used Harris' volume for my Greek Exegesis class through the book of Colossians and it was excellent. I'm happy to hear that there will be more volumes, as I found the details very helpful for those with Greek knowledge but perhaps aren't immediately aware of the twenty-some options for how the genitive can be understood. I'd definitely purchase this if it were made available in Accordance.

I've just been given a copy of Vlachos on James. If the others in the series follow this format, which the general series introduction indicates, then they will indeed be very handy. It strikes me as a Zerwick on steroids, examining the grammatical alternatives on a verse by verse basis from the Greek text, and discussing them. It also provides very substantial bibliographies. One weakness I've noticed is that the verse that is being studied is not given in full in the Greek before then being broken down. Of course this would impact the length and the Greek is given in fragments as each is treated. Having this in Acc of course would allow one to have the Greek in parallel beside which would resolve this small shortcoming.


And having the many references link to Acc resources and support for ID in various cases would be really nice.
