I was starting to see what new purchases had done to my unclassified list. Somehow my collections are not updating automatically - an issue I'll look into later. But I noticed that Catholics still look odd to me> I'm missing something in how you are looking at things. What I expected:

Denom. Stream: Catholic

Denominations: Latin, Syro-Malabar, Melkite, Maronite etc.

Subgroup: OFM, OP, SJ ...

This would match what I thought was the Anglican structure:

Denom. Stream: Anglican

Denominations: Church of England, Church of Ireland . . .

Subgroup: OFM (the most common Anglican order)

or the similar Lutheran structure:

Denom. Stream: Lutheran

Denominations: ELCA, WELS, LCMS ...

Subgroup: Franciscans, Holy Trinity, Order of Mary (sample Lutheran orders)

What am I missing?

Trying to build a mind map of the relationships embedded in the collections and found a problem requiring duplication of data. My intent in suggesting the 2 categories:

  • Pre-schism
  • Post-schism. pre-reformation

was to allow the pre-schism group to be included in both the Catholic and Orthodox streams (and certain Protestant groups that claim them as well) and for post-schism, pre-reformation to be included in Catholic and certain Protestant groups e.g. Anglicans but not to be included in Orthodox.

That doesn't appear to be the intent of the current structure. It could be supported by duplicate entries - often 3 to include the religious order in the current structure. If that is the intent, I need to work my way through which require multiple entries if I am to correctly edit the table.

The structure of the Congregational entries confuses me.

In the case of the Evangelical Free Church of America, if I recall correctly the EFCA merged with the Congregational Church. In the case of the United Church of Christ, the Congregational Church merged into the UCC. The two entries have opposite relationships. However, there is a larger question - what relationship is being shown by the denominational stream - history of theology or church ecumenical history?

Another interesting puzzle. (Yes, I'm going through in great details seeing if I'd be willing to help with the updates.)

Under "Anglican" is the Church of South India. From Wikipedia:

"The Church of South India (CSI) is the successor of the Church of England in India after Indian Independence. It came into being by a union of Anglican and Protestant churches in South India. It combined the South India United Church (union of the Congregationalists and the Presbyterians); the then 14 Anglican Dioceses of South India and one in Sri Lanka; and the South Indian District of the Methodist church With a membership of over four million, it is India's second largest Christian church after the Catholic Church in India. CSI is one of four united churches in the Anglican Communion."

Do United Churches need their own category as they represent a theological mix rather than belonging to any single thread?

What is the thinking for making Arminianism a denomination rather than a theological stance? And if a person gives a parachurch as their denomination, is it really a parachurch anymore?

Maybe a dumb question, but how do I utilize these tags and get them into my Logos library? I also would like to create collections of several of these and can't figure out how to get them to show in Logos (mainly a puritan collection). I went to documents.logos.com and only have the option to duplicate these tags, which simply makes another of the same file at documents.logos.com. How do I get these to show up in my Logos library?

Xenia and its later iteration Xenia-Pittsburgh theological seminary are both United Presbyterians.
Andover Theological Seminary is at a minimum reformed.

These seminaries both produced Bibliotheca Sacra prior to Dallas (as did Oberlin seminary, Which started as a non-denominational institution but merged with Vanderbilt which considers it self Episcopal Methodists.)

Also - Charles Ryrie of nebulous denominational affiliation (but certainly a dispensationalist as he was the former president of Dallas Theological Seminary) has a book published through B&H and so one of his titles is flagged as southern baptist.

IS Ryrie Southern Baptist? If so lets add him as an author, if not, we need to make an exception Publisher:(Broadman and Holman ANDNOT Author:Ryrie) or however that would look.

The book in question is his "Ryrie's Practical Guide to Communicating Bible Doctrine".

Also I noticed Kenneth O. Gangel is listed by name under Parachurch, and by publisher under Southern Baptist (and Baptist).

For Theology: Amillenial

The following people have books that are from an Amillenial perspective, that also have books (or journal entries) published in Logos.

G.K. Beale
Hendriksen, William
Hill, Charles E
Anthony Hoekema
Johnson, Dennis E
Mathison, Keith
Poythress, Vern
Riddlebarger, Kim
Venema, Cornelis
Sam Storms
Samuel Waldron

Here is where the list originated from.

Anything by: Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist Convention should be included in the southern baptist collection.

The sunday school board (unlike B & H) was primarily concerned with producing things for within the denomination.

Most of the items they've produced that are in Logos are as part of a classic commentary collection, but never the less.

Skip Heitzig, Greg Laurie, and Ray Comfort need to be added to the Dispensational tag.

The Premillennialism Wikipedia page has Ray Comfort listed as Dispensational. Also, Dispensational beliefs can be found on both Greg Laurie's and Skip Heitzig's church websites.

David Abernathy.

Should be listed as reformed - he's a graduate of RTS.

He has 5 titles in the exegetical summary series that aren't being picked up.

Ezra Abbot

Should be listed as Unitarian

Many of the prominent early textual critics were Unitarians, including Johann Wettstein (1693-1754), Alexander Geddes (1737-1802), Edward Harwood (1729-94), George Vance Smith (1816-1902), Ezra Abbot (1819-84), Joseph Henry Thayer (1828-1901), and Caspar Rene Gregory (1846-1917). Others such as Johann Griesbach, though not Unitarian, were modernists who denied the deity of Christ.


Daniel C. Arichea - is a Bishop with the UMC.

Rev George Barlow - Presbyterian

Julius August Bewer was ordained congregational, and worked at a seminary that currently claims it is ecumenical.

John Dominic Crossan - wiki lists him as Roman Catholic (though he's no longer a priest). He's also tied to the Jesus Seminar and their quest for the historical jesus. Which may be a good collection to make as well.

Frederic Farrar - Anglican - kind of surprised he wasn't listed. You have to click the links for the churches he pastored to see he was/is Anglican.

Also - can you add OR MyTag:(short name for the group/theology in question IE MyTag:Anglican to the Anglican Collection) to the collections?

I have 540 also. I used the mytag to include the Encyclopedia and Atlas. They were not properly tagged.

Thanks for posting your rule to this thread, Lynden. It looks like the additions you made for SDA are as listed out below. (It's probably a bit easier for Andrew if we just list the additions as a list rather than posting the entire rule, if possible.)

I have spent a good deal of time tagging most of my library - The inclusion of tags in rules would be helpful to me.

ALSO Kevin DeYoung is changing denominations to PCA
