Why should I subscribe to iPreach when there are so many other free resources on the Internet?

While it is true that there are a great number of resources available on the Internet for free, the majority of these resources are works that considered public domain material and can be freely distributed. A work is considered public domain and no longer bound by copyright restrictions when it is no longer owned by either an individual or a publishing company, and when it has been in existence for more than 70 years after the death of the author.

The titles included in iPreach are copyrighted works and not available for free elsewhere.

Can I see how the subscription works before I subscribe?

In order to introduce you to this revolutionary new concept, we have made a selection of titles available for demonstration purposes, allowing you to experience how the subscription looks and works. You may search, access, and print materials from these titles at no cost.

To enable you to see the depth and breadth of material available in the subscription, any search that you enter will be applied to the contents of iPreach , and you will be able to view the list of results. You will not, however, be able to access documents from titles other than those designated as free.

I alread own several Abingdon Software titles. Will this material be duplicated?

Most of the material previously published as CD-ROM titles by Abingdon Press will eventually be included in the subscription. However, the proportion of material previously published on CD-ROMs to new material, previously unavailable in electronic format, will decrease each year. In the first year, approximately 50 of the titles included have been previously published in an Abingdon Software CD-ROM title.
