I'm a heavy Logos user, using it each week for around 20 hours to prepare my sermons and Bible Studies. When studying commentaries, I use the Passage Guide as starting point. I have a lot of commentaries, and knowing which one of the commentaries listed as "1 Corintheans" (for example) is the one I'm looking for, means I have to open them one by one.

Is there a way to show the series and/or author of the commentaries in the Passage Guide?

Yes, on the information panel you can rename them - I've added an abbreviation of the series they are in or the author's name if that is more useful.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."

Thank you very much! This is very, very helpful!

It’s been my experience that the mobile app will not display custom resource titles in the passage guide but will in library view which makes no sense.

I tested it, and the custom titles are not used in the Passage Guide in the mobile app. This is very strange.
It would be very nice if Logos could fix this 'bug'.

... but sorts library titles by the original title. They worked hard.
