The MacArthur Topical Bible. Is there another? Joking a little, but this is a comprehensive topical resource by a well-respected author that presents a wide range of topics in an easy to follow format.

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

Torrey’s "New Topical Textbook", comes with every base package, I believe. I also show the following from my library:

  • Catholic Topical Index
  • The MacArthur Topical Bible
  • Nelson’s Topical Bible Index
  • New Nave’s Topical Bible
  • The New Topical Text Book: A Scripture Text Book for the Use of Ministers, Teachers, and All Christian Workers
  • Topical Analysis of the Bible
  • Tozer Topical Reader in Two Volumes

But I normally use the built in features of Logos:

  • Tools -> Factbook
  • Guides -> Topic Guide

The Thematic Bible is one of, if not the best, yet overlooked in my opinion. Take a look at the description and screenshots so you get an idea of why I think it’s a great resource. The others that other users have posted would be just a supplement to this one. Here’s the link:

I also like the Macarthur one but if I remember correctly it is tagged as a monograph... I wish they would fix that

Martin Manser's Dictionary of Bible Themes is head and shoulders above the others, in my opinion. It's so good, Faithlife use it to create the Thematic Outlines section of the Sermon Starter Guide. Plus, it's in all the base packages, so you should already have it.

To slightly reframe this discussion, the books being mentioned all show up in the library as type:bible-concordance. Additional resources of that type that I don't think have been mentioned yet are:

  • Collins Thesaurus of the Bible
  • The Divine Armory of Holy Scripture
  • New American Standard Updated Edition Exhaustive Concordance
  • The New Thematic Concordance
  • Where to Find It in the Bible
  • Willmington's Book of Bible Lists

Surely there are others, though.

Matthew:

This is the collection rule I came with earlier, though there are others here that could probably do better:

Topical Indexes:

(title:topical OR type:"bible concordance" OR subject:"bible--indexes" OR tag:"topical") -series:"Pulpit Outlines Series" -title:"New American Standard Hebrew-Aramaic and Greek Dictionaries"

It picked up two that look like false-positives, NTSK and another, but they do have subject indexes in the back so I left it. There might be others the rule doesn't pick up?

I couldn’t agree more!  I can’t believe I missed this one! Probably because in my mind I was thinking “dictionary” and not “topical Bible,” but yes definitely an outstanding resource. 👍😁👌

You have been given many helpful suggestions. I would add one more:  The New Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

https://www.logos.com/product/1214/the-new-treasury-of-scripture-knowledge

Technically, it isn't a topical Bible, but it is a very good resource.  I happened to stumble across it in my library a few months back and wanted to share this so that others would find it too.
