I just read /Chapters & Verses: Who Needs Them?/ by Christopher R. Smith in Bible Study Magazine... In Logos is there a way to show an outline of a book of the Bible like in the ESV Literary Study Bible where it shows passages where they break naturally instead of the chapter breaks? I have the Scholar's Library for Mac.

Although I have the ESV Literary Study Bible, I'm not sure what you mean; therefore, I can't answer the question although I suspect the answer is yes.  Could you puy a short example here and I'll see how we might recreate it.

I am not aware of any way to turn off chapter/verse numbering.

Here's an example... I don't want to turn off the chapters and verses, I just want to see an outline... Acts 1 in the Literary Study Bible shows the outline below that makes it easy to see where each section/topic/passage begins and ends... 1. 1:1-7:60 Coming of the Holy Spirit to give birth to the church 2. 8:1-12:25 The church expands beyond Jerusalem 3. 13:1-21:26 Paul's missionary journeys 4. 21:27-28:31 Paul's career as a prisoner for the Gospel

Two possibilities (not perfect but ...)

1) on the Logos home page under Study Passage, enter a book name e.g. Acts and it will display a drop down pick list with the section headings.

2) under tools pick Bible comparison - Compare pericopes

Hope this helps a bit.

Chapters & Verses: Who Needs Them?/ by Christopher R. Smith in Bible Study Magazine

I just read the article online and broke out laughing. As a lectionary-based liturgical church member I've never thought of the Bible in terms of chapters and verses but rather in terms of lections/pericopes. I've also read several arguments claiming that the NT scripture was written to be read aloud in lectionary pieces. To some extent (less than in the Eastern rites) Sundays may be known by their Gospels e.g. there is The Man Born Blind, The Woman at the Well, and The Raising of Lazarus in the Sundays immediately preceding Passion/Palm Sunday.

So why did I break out laughing? A friend who is a lay liturgical reader (i.e. she proclaims the OT or Epistle reading) had brought her Presbyterian Mother to Mass. At the end of the service, her Mother complained there'd been no scripture in the service.  My friend replied that there were three readings plus a psalm - what did her mother mean? Mother's response - well you didn't give any chapters or verses.Big Smile
