This Week in Accordance Bible (2015.05.30)

Here's my unofficial, off-the-clock rundown of everything related to Accordance Bible Software from this past week. Here's what you may have missed if you were on vacation.
Sale on Hermeneia—A Critical & Historical Commentary on the Bible
Hermeneia is probably one of the most technical commentaries out there, and it's a bit to the left theologically from my perspective. Nevertheless, I find it to be an incredibly valuable resource at time because I have never felt I had to agree 100% with material to get benefit from it. Most amazingly we currently have Hermeneia for Accordance at only $499 for all 49 volumes. This is the lowest price we've ever offered the set. Consider that if you were to purchase these same volumes in print, you'd spend well over $3,000, and we normally run it for $829. 
As of this writing, there's only about two days left to get this deal because the sale ends at midnight Monday, June 1. 


Sale on Titles Related to the Church Fathers/Early Church
A number of titles related to perspectives from figures in the Early Church are also on sale, including the following:
Like the Hermeneia Commentaries, these titles will only be on sale for a couple more days--through midnight, Monday, June 1.

Egyptian Updates for the Accordance Bible Lands PhotoGuide 4
Although the update (free upgrade for those who had already purchased PhotoGuide 4) was released a few days ago, we only really began promoting it on Friday. According to the blog post, the update provides a considerable amount of new content:
This new update adds over 350 new pictures and numerous articles on Egypt, the ancient land of wonder and one of the most important lands of the Bible. Some of these articles include the following entries: Alexandria, On, Memphis, the Pyramids of Giza and Saqqara, Thebes, Luxor, Karnak, Hatshepsut’s Temple, the Valley of the Kings, and Syene (Aswan).
If you're not familiar with the Accordance Bible Lands PhotoGuide 4, you should really check it out. It's a tremendously unique photo guide to the land of the Bible with photos you won't find anywhere else as most of them were taken by people who work for Accordance. It's on sale for over 20% off beginning yesterday and going through June 8.

What's your take on the Ancient Christian Doctrine series? Is it as in-depth at each turn/phrase as the ACCS?

Abram, I'm sorry I didn't see this before the sale went off. For some reason I didn't get any Squarespace notification of your comment.

If anything, the doctrine series feels more in-depth to me, taking 5 volumes to treat the Nicene Creed.
