Accordance Bible Software

Accordance is one of the best Bible programs available for Mac. It is simple and easy to do a keyword search or to go directly to a Bible passage.

"Accordance" is both the name of a company and the name of a computer program. The company Accordance offers Bible software for Mac, as well as a large selection of additional Bible versions, commentaries, dictionaries, maps, and much more. These "extras" are called "modules" individually. However, you can also purchase a "package" which includes a collection of several modules.

You can buy the Accordance program, as well as all the add-ons, at retail value from the official Accordance website. Or you can save over 40% of the retail value by purchasing a Zondervan Bible Study Suite from
