Has anyone else noticed that searches such as <Topic Law> or <Topic Cannibalism> bring up one or fewer results. And, no, adding Section doesn't get any results. Has <Topic> been replaced and therefore what does the Topic Guide actually run off? Cultural Concepts? Preaching Theme?

I am not sure what is being used, but I also see that a search for <Topic X> turns up only a very few results, and a Factbook search of X has much more.

Faithlife persist with this datatype search for some reason, but it is unfruitful. They try to make something of it with Factbook suggesting an Everything Search like <Topic Christ the Rock> OR "Christ the Rock".  You may get more results if you tick Match equivalent references e.g. with <Topic Salvation> you'll find that the results actually come from <PreachingTheme Salvation>.

Topic Guide runs off the LCV dataset (Logos Controlled Vocabulary), and replaces the Topic Browser from L3.  Suggestions for <Topic ...> should be removed from Search and Factbook.
