Just for the record, CNTTS is $99 normal price...so definitely not $200!  :)

I'm currently considering whether I should make any further investments in Church history and theology resources. Particularly under consideration is whether I should get a multi-volume work on Church, or whether I should narrow down my forthcoming library investments:

If you're interested in theology, you might enjoy the writings of the church fathers

 

 

 

 

Now I saw this alarming post: http://www.accordanc...ic=8436&p=37282 ... it's as I thought. Updating the software will cost aproximately as much as I thought. I would need to update Accordance at least 3 times. At ~$70 a time, that would be $210 during a lifetime of 24 years.

 

 

 

I would also be glad if I get replies in: NIDNTT as dictionary (only Starter and UBS Handbook)? Reply there.

Not to quibble, but the last several upgrades (e.g. Accordance 9 to Accordance 10; also 8 to 9) was $49.99 ($59.99 for 7 to 8) and such upgrades are always major. Yet 10.0 to 10.1 to 10.x has always been no cost, and many times includes major improvements. The initial purchase for 10 is $49.99 for new users, so your $70 may be high (though inflation could kick in).

The updates are up to you - we never force people to update.  People can still happily use Accordance 5 and their old content if they want.  But, if you choose to pay for an update your computer or OS that isn't compatible with the older software, you may also have to update Accordance.  But, thats your choice, we will never force anything.

Yeah I know, I had that in mind:

I would be glad if I get more opinions on the UBS Handbook - whether it's a good purchase, and which dictionary to add?

In addition to that: what lexicon should I add?

 

I'm a very big fan of the UBS Handbooks. My favourite lexicon is BDAG.
