The series of books is good, helpful resources. The issue I have with the digital version is that if you bought the NIGNTC in acc 11 and you want to upgrade now, adding Romans, you will then LOSE phillippians.

I assumed the REB (which is all that accordance offers) would suffice for checking references but I have been disappointed. Many passages have been changed from the NEB as quoted in my books and no one ever refers to ...

Many passages have been changed from the NEB as quoted in my books and no one ever refers to the REB. The translation is fine but I am more interested in the un-revised version. I would love to see accordance release a module that lets the user see both, or footnotes the changes or something. I was interested in the early, potentially flawed version for research purposes and the REB doesn't solve the problem.
