    "Best Bible Software on Any Platform"

    January 27, 2012  |   By rwebber6828

    Version: Accordance 9.5.3

    Pros

    Accordance is the most versatile, customizable, powerful, elegant, intuitive, software available for Bible study. The scholarly resources, excellent support, decades on the Mac platform make it the premier choice -- hands down.

    Cons

    Sometimes pricey.

    Summary

    I have used every major (and some minor) software options on Mac and PC. This is always my first choice.

    "Accordance has everything you need."

    November 17, 2010  |   By allen_a_watson_dotmac

    Version: Accordance 9.1

    Pros

    Great basic product. All kinds of add-on modules; many Bible versions; commentaries; dictionaries; maps; timelines. Greek and Hebrew. Everything is hyperlinked so you can quickly find everything about any passage. Great support. Free seminars.

    Cons

    It is expensive. If you buy several add-ons you can spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars. But the basic package is worth the money. I've added modules bit by bit over the years.

    Summary

    An incredibly rich set of Bible study tools, all very well integrated. Each person can pick just the modules they need for their particular purposes. I love the ease with which I can customize the user interface. The instructional videos, which are free, are very helpful.

    Version: Accordance 9.0.7

    Pros

    love the speed and accessibility.

    Cons

    would like better "wiget" function

    Summary

    Great to have way to research and study the bible at my fingertips. Updated regularly and efficiently. Keep up the good work! Thanks for a great product.

    "great searching and functionality"

    September 22, 2010  |   By catspec

    Version: Accordance 9.0.2

    Pros

    The ability to search many resources at once, the ability to tie running studies together and call up maps, timelines and additional resources as needed. I LOVE the Use Notes and other User developed resources which are not difficult to create.

    Cons

    I would love it if the creation tools for user tool and notes were HTML. Some aspects of the program work very differently than the usual GUI in other programs, but this is not odd in Mac software. Since I use both Mac and PC, I am used to this,

    Summary

    For the efficiency and the price, and the EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE, you really should try Accordance. I also owed a previous version of the popular PC software Logos Library, and they are quite similar in some ways. However, the Accordance customer service and the very excellent features and the responsiveness to user requests really put Accordance over the top!

    "Best version yet of Accordance software for Mac."

    September 21, 2010  |   By DrIBEX

    Version: Accordance 9.0.2

    Pros

    Intuitive, with the interface smooth, and the ability to handle a lot of resources on the screen at once. Customer support is super. Problem that I caused was patiently worked through with me on Skype! Maybe ahead of Logos/Mac in functionality.

    Cons

    Still short of Logos in the # of resources. Not much else to not like.

    Version: Accordance 9.0.2

    Pros

    Strong focus on the biblical text. Excellent support.

    Cons

    Some modules are rather expensive.

    Summary

    I have used Accordance for almost two years now and have found it to be a tremendous tool for studying the Bible. The company has a strong record of support and an extremely courteous staff. A little pricey, but definitely worth the money.

    "Speed, easy of use, functionality, and features"

    September 20, 2010  |   By abenro

    Version: Accordance 9.0.2

    Pros

    I've used Accordance for a long time and every version gets better and better. This version is no exception, with the overhauled user interface, a speed increase.

    Cons

    when I can think of one I will let you know, I know the iphone app is coming so it's getting harder to find a cons.

    Summary

    This product has some of the best features out there if you really want to dig into the richness of scripture then this is the application for you. Either on a Mac or a PC (with emulation software), this software is worth every penny. The training, online users groups, and users forums all help people to learn how to use it to the fullest.
