This is something I've been thinking for quite a while, but it's just crystallised in my mind in the process of an e-mail exchange with the sales department. It seems to me that OakTree might do well to consider expanding the range of "collections" to cater better for people like me. I'm sure there'd be a lot of us out there. I'm a pastor-preacher with a sound academic background. I could once have gone down the Masters or even doctoral level path in biblical studies. But God has kept me on the pastoral track, and never let me off . So I have a good mind, and want to expound the Scriptures with thoroughness and rigour, but only in my dreams would I ever use the most scholarly resources. It doesn't seem to me that "we" are especially well catered for in current Accordance collections. We have to choose between a Library that's a bit lightweight for where we're at, or one that's way beyond what we'll ever use. If I think about it, I guess I'd be looking for a collection comprising something like: 4 modern English Bible texts Greek and Hebrew texts (but probably not LXX) 2 mid-level Greek tools 2 mid-level Hebrew tools say 2 solid-but-not-ultra-scholarly commentary series' (e.g. Expositors' and Pillar … ) I'm making this a poll, to see how many others might share this perspective.
