I have Early Church Fathers Protestant Edition (37 vols.) in my library. Could you give me some ways I can integrate this into my Word Study Searches and any other way this resource can be used. Thanks so much

Not sure about word studies, since ECF is in english. Just don't know.

But ECF is great in a CitedBy panel, linked to the Bible. I have my ECFs titled/dated, since I prefer earlier comments regarding the text. I might add, my brain seems to 'lock' on ECF as NT related, forgetting that they used OT interpretation quite a bit. So, it's handy for my stubborn brain.

Some of these volumes are sermons or even commentaries on the Biblical text, and so should show up in the list whenever commentary options appear in various reports.

But one of the most useful tools for me is "Cited By." It is found under the Tools menu and then the Lookup subgroup.This tool will find wherever the active reference - eg. Bible Passage - is referenced in your library. To manage all the references given, you will probably want to make various collections.

I don't know if it's still a thing, but it used to be that the person who had one of the two (Catholic or Protestant) could get the other for free. I've found it helpful to have both because some Logos citations assume a certain version and having the other results in a "resource not found."

Just checked—it is still a thing. ;) I just downloaded the set I did not own at no cost. Yes, this will eliminate the resource not found issue. ;)

Thanks for letting us know about this.

You‘re welcome 🙂. I think I first encountered this with “The Annotated Luther” where citatations were based on the page number in the Protestant version.
