When I do a basic search, I see a topic section at the top -- but it pulls only a small number of results.  For instance, "ascension" only pulls up 4 books, but ignores some quality resources like the New Dictionary of Theology.

Any idea of why it is ignoring some resources?

I assume there is some way to add books to the "topic search" tab.

Topic searching in L4 is a work in progress - and is not yet ready for prime time.

A work around is to --

  1. Build a collection of topical indexes (e.g. Naves), Dictionaries, Encyclopedias, etc.
  2. Do a word search on this collection.  
  3. Better yet, create a copy of the Word Search guide using the definitions found in your topic collection found in step 1 above. 

Follow some of the links in this thread and those it points to for more details:

So I take it the topic() funtion from L3 is no longer supported.

The topic() search parameter doesn't exist in L4, correct.
