Blessings in Christ.

Mine I'm afraid is relatively simple, but I'll post it and will look back to see how others have made their rules and see if I can improve mine.

You both rely on the subject field - this will rule out lots of books where this is not managed well, including all of Vyrso's books.

For a first take I settled on: (Atonement,Judgment,Justification,Salvation) type:mono -mytag:fiction 

This may include some only tangentially related, but it will not miss e.g. https://vyrso.com/product/21387/whosoever-will (a classic in the Calv/Arm debate that currently is on sale for 2.99) or https://vyrso.com/product/13265/bought-with-blood-the-divine-exchange-at-the-cross (currently free) or - yet another perspective - John Piper's https://vyrso.com/product/13510/jesus-the-only-way-to-god

Thanks for the great suggestion. I'm going to use this now. I'm sure that lots of my other rules rely too much on the subject field as well. I will have to remember to change these in the future.

(Salvation,Redemption,Sovereignty,Atonement,Deliverance,Rescue,Escape,Pardon,Grace,Mercy,Justification,Forgiveness,Reconcile) type:mono -mytag:fiction

But you are going to get tons of hits ..... We could also add many more searches terms as well - Eternal,Satisfaction,Propitiation,Acceptance,Bought,Purchased,Election,Born, etc

I find it easier to set up theological search terms (based upon the Reformed Ordis Salutis):

Election
Effectual Calling
Regeneration
Conversion
Repentance
Faith
Justification
Adoption
Sanctification
Perseverance
Glorification

Note that repentance and faith are part of conversion but I could not get them to indent on this website using an ipad.

Yours In Christ

Christ Alone:
Election
Effectual Calling
Regeneration
Conversion
Repentance
Faith
Justification
Adoption
Sanctification
Perseverance
Glorification

Good idea! How would it be possible to organize it?

Blessings in Christ.
