I attempted to create a reading plan for this summer for Luther's Commentary on Galatians for the Lutheran Theology Faithlife group.  Unfortunately this resource has no page numbers and only a few headings, and so I was unable to break it into more than 11 readings - and each of the last six were by chapter of Galatians.  These last chunks were a bit too big for the group reading IMHO.

Is there any way I am missing for reading plans to have manageable chunks for this resource?  Or would the resource have to be updated for this to work?

Of course, I could read it in the Crossway edition or Luther's Works, but thought it would be good to use the edition in your base packages.

Peace, Ken!              *smile*                                         I only had a few minutes and may be mistaken; however, I think that the Crossway edition is "abridged"      ...............                          Was just checking a few passages dealing with "Jerome" over against the Logos Edition and felt that there is a definite difference ....         , Crossway "missing" some references ...

                                                        But!            Beware of my findings ...........        haven't had time to verify ...            *smile*

Also, I think that some of the other editions of the Crossway Series re. other reformers are also "edited" and/or "abridged" ....    which really does not suit me, eh?!       ..........    even though some of the Crossway material ended up being labelled "free"!                   Not free, methinks, one pays a price by relying on edited material ........                      *smile*

I think this is a bug (or not developed feature?). Since the resource is type:"bible commentary" and has only bible as index, the Reading Plan engine should go for verses and not for chapter headings.

Milford - yes, the Crossway edition is abridged - and I hear that what it takes out is Luther's fun polemics...  But as much as I enjoy that side of Luther, there is a place for those edited for content editions.  I am not aware of ANY Lutheran who sings "Lord, Keep us Steadfast in Your Word" according to Luther's text where the next line is asking God to restrain the murderous Pope and Turk....

Yeah - something like this would make sense.
