Wildcard searches do take a long time. It's recommended to only execute them on a small amount of text.

Wildcard search for every character of Large Text is slow: both to find every character and to highlight every character.

Quicker search idea is opening resource to look at Table of Contents followed by searching for words that are used a lot, which can find part of Large Text. Refining search is adding more words that occur a lot. Relatively few words should find part of most Large Text phrases.

Apologies since my library does not have Core Christianity so searched Large Text in a different resource with Core in its Title:

(CHARACTERISTICS,of,effective) OR the OR (a,an,and,for,in,on)

Search result highlight color shows words in a comma list have same color.
