IVP Pocket Reference Series (15 volumes)

Pocket Greek iPhone Have you ever been guilty of not paying attention in class? You’re sitting in New Testament Greek, and the professor says something about emphatic negation subjunctives. Wait…what? Two minutes spent thinking about lunch and suddenly you’re behind in the class discussion!

Whether you’re a student, pastor, or even a professor (we won’t tell!), the kinds of situations like the one described above require quick access to reference tools provided like the IVP Pocket Reference Series. It doesn’t matter who you are—at some point, you need a quick definition for a biblical, theological or original language term.

Or sometimes, you need an overview of a particular topic. Need to brush up on the classic arguments for God? There’s a handbook for that. What about a theological movement or era of church history? Absolutely! In fact, if you need a refresher on 2,000 years of church history, you could brush up over the weekend.

Accordance users have had access to some of the IVP Pocket Reference Series for a while, but only now have we offered the entire 15-volume set. Every title is available individually or in a bundle of all 15 titles. 11 of these titles are pocket dictionaries containing succinct definitions over the following topics: Apologetics & Philosophy of Religion, Biblical Studies, Church History, North American Denominations, Ethics, Biblical Hebrew Terms, Biblical Greek Terms, Liturgy & Worship, New Religious Movements, Reformed Tradition, and Theological Terms. All together, these 11 volumes provide concise definitions for over 6,600 terms, right at your fingertips.

The other four volumes serve as concise overviews or handbooks for History of Theology, Christian Apologetics, Church History, and World Religions.

Pocket History iPad Pro

These types of resources should not be mistaken as tools for in-depth study of any subject, but they are indispensable for quick reference or as a first stop for basic understanding before pursuing a subject more in-depth. I’ve used the pocket dictionaries many times over for finding a concise definition for use in teaching settings, especially if I’m using presentation software to supplement my lesson. Pastors and teachers in the church or the classroom will be able to use these resources to take often-difficult concepts and simplify them as understandable starting points of discussion.

Moreover, these titles are the perfect resources to have at the ready on your iPhone or iPad. Find the exact information in you need quickly and efficiently, no matter where you are!

Pocket Dictionaries Group Tip (1): Create a Research Group with the 11 Pocket Dictionaries. Search all these resources at once when you need to find a definition for a term of concept.

Tip (2): In Accordance Mobile, edit the order of your resources to place the IVP Pocket Reference Series near the top of its category. This way you can access these titles swiftly when you need quick information on a subject.
