    "Very useful tool for any pastor."

    September 20, 2010  |   By djuli001

    Version: Accordance 9.0.2

    Pros

    Easy to use and they have a great range of resources available.

    Cons

    It does take time to get to know your way around the program, but it is worth it, and it is certainly easier to use than most other programs.

    Summary

    The ability to have all the commentaries that I could dream of at my fingertips and to compile specific searches across different books is amazing.

    "The Ultimate Bible software for all at every level."

    September 20, 2010  |   By GKragen

    Version: Accordance 9.0.2

    Pros

    The ability to do Bible study with all the resources you could possible need. It is for personal use or for clergy for preaching and teaching. It is for scholars who work in original languages of for the teacher who only works in English.

    Cons

    I've been using the products for many years and I haven't found any yet, except I've reduced the size of my actual book library. Version 9 is slightly buggy but it won't be for long because of the excellent support.

    Summary

    For those fortunate to have Macs, there is no better Bible software out there. And the novice can get started for a very reasonable price. For the scholars, you can spend a much as you can scrape up and not exhaust available resources. After all where else can you have an opportunity to translate the Dead Sea Scrolls for yourself.

    "The premier Bible software on the planet"

    September 20, 2010  |   By denbarth

    Version: Accordance 9.0.2

    Pros

    Every other bible program I've seen pales in comparison. At a basic level, it's pretty easy to use. But you can do deeper, deeper, deeper--the program that biblical scholars/researchers use. Staggering # of resources available.

    Cons

    When one gets into Greek/Hebrew/Aramaic/latin etc, the cost of tools mounts up quickly. Cheaper than hard copies though.

    Summary

    On the Mac the program is flawless and fast. I don't know what the emulation software for PC is like. As one adds more texts and tools, they are so easily accessed that it's easy to have 5-10 windows open at once - surrounded by resources. The original language search and grammatical analysis tools are robust and easy to use. The user notes with it's ability to tag/link to texts being studied makes it easy to create one's own customized commentary for future study. I have used Accordance for 15+ years. Oak Tree Software steadily improves it. Their customer service is outstanding-it really is. It's rare that I rave about something like this, but this is the real deal.

    "So fast it is crazy. It has everything"

    September 20, 2010  |   By Peperkorn

    Version: Accordance 9.0.2

    Pros

    I have been using Accordance since I think version 7. Version 9 just came out and it's speed and usability is really unparalleled.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is a little limiting in certain denominational distinctives (e.g. Lutheran).

    Summary

    It is fast, reliable, easy to use, and most importantly, it is focused on studying the Scriptures. That is the point of the software, and I have never seen anything else even come close.

    "The best Biblical Software available!"

    September 20, 2010  |   By andrewtheshaw

    Version: Accordance 9.0.2

    Pros

    Great original language support for translating, parsing, and exegeting the original language texts. Super in-depth search capabilities. An extremely large library of commentaries, exegetical tools, dictionaries, and atlas'.

    Cons

    Accordance does take a while to learn everything it can do, although not so much a con as a testament to how incredible this software is.

    Summary

    If you're looking for the absolute best in Bible software designed to allow you to search deeper, exegete the original texts, and grow in the word, then this is a must have. If you don't have a Mac, it's worth getting one to use Accordance! (Accordance is availabe to PC's as well).

    Version: Accordance 8.0

    Summary

    Although I've not spent much time w/8.0 yet. I can say that it is noticeably faster. That fact alone makes it worth the upgrade price (to me).

    "The Best Bible Software!"

    July 13, 2006  |   By Guntis

    Version: Accordance 7.0.2

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    Accordance is the best Bible software I've every seen or tested. And I've seen Logos, BibleWorks, VerseSearch, etc. And, of course, this is native Mac application which alone makes it much better than any port or emulation. It's very easy to use, and what's most important for me - it combines everything into one single application, while in PC side of the fence one has to use several applications to get the same functionality. Version 6 was very stable, and v.7.0.2 also brings the same stability back. Thank you for such a wonderful program!!!

    I have to add that the pricing policy is also very good. You can start with the basic module and buy additional modules later to grow up your library, and they credit your money for the next update, so you have to pay only the difference. Thank you for this too! Without it, I wouldn't able to use all what I have now. And OakTee Software has excellent user support, too! (Thank you, Helen!)

    "10 reasons why to"

    November 30, 2005  |   By guruosmosis

    Version: Accordance 6.9.1

    Summary

    This review was originally posted on VersionTracker.com.
    invest in Accordance: #10) There are several good Bible Study programs on the market, and have been so for many years. Accordance is a newer entry. I believe it's been about ten years now, and its creators learned what the serious Bible student needs, to what the novice will enjoy 9) I've invested heavily in two other products over the years, and I was always "kinda-sorta" happy but never fully satisfied. 8) Customer support was fair to good with those other Bible programs. Accordance support, experientially, has always been very good. 7) Accordance's website for product upgrades is great, and module purchasing includes a serial number. It's fast and easy, but for "unlocking software groups" you need to purchase and have on hand their CDs. Also, many files are too large to download. You may only need one CD for basic entry level, to several for advanced studies, to numerous if you're at a scholar's level. This is due to the Greek and Hebrew language studies, advanced study commentaries, and reference study modules (books). 6) Accordance's module selections play second fiddle to no one. 5) It's coded (written) for several operating platforms, but appears to be heavily invested toward Mac users (this is good and the way it should be:>). 4) Mac os9 is fully supported, and as their leap into osX. 3) Updates to Accordance's heart program is always timely and constantly updated. 2) New modules are constantly being added, and others updated as needed. And the number (1) reason is; Invest in Accordance because it's what Jesus would use to teach you <smile>. This program gets a rare five star rating from me because it's the only Bible study program worth a serious long term investment of your time and money. Manuals are available free in .pdf, but an extra cost for well written paper manuals
