Thanks to Accordance for sending me this software bundle. I’ll speak more about what is in it later. Warning, this is my first Accordance package, so I cannot compare it to 10 or below. My focus will be on the ease of Accordance and what it can do (learning curve, basic operation, etc…). This is the collection I am working with. For those who want to see what is new in Accordance 11, see here. First, straight out of the box, it downloaded, installed, and “indexed” quick, easy, and without pain to my Mac. Another thing? I get to
I am not a singer, but I do like the idea of having a small hymnal at my whim. Plus, this gives me hope of including denominational hymnals one day. Anyway, it plays MIDI files, includes images of the hymns (words and music) as well as printed words. You can find it here.

I made this: Let me show you how: There is so much you can do with this feature, both church and academy. It’s going to be a great tool for us bloggers Teachers and Preachers can use it for teaching via media.
Not only did I, perhaps, get to beta test this, I am now reviewing it. One of the coolest, quickest features I really like is the addition of the in-line search. This allows you to search, from the same screen, the text before you. There you go. I know this sounds like a “duh” addition, but it is new and I’ve used it daily when searching for a text.
You’ll just have to deal with me for a minute. I am not a sales rep nor do I participate in the Logos Affiliate program. More power to those bloggers who do. I would rather not, so that at least in appearance, I can presume to give you unbiased advice. I say this because I am biased to serious bible study and I believe you can actually get serious through Logos. For instance, there is a textual variant in Mark 9.49 that I like to play around with from time to time. I believe it points to a time
I am doing a Fouetté rond de jambe en tournant right now because of this new feature. First, the video: Now, some screen shots:
