What is it?

Get quick information on who’s who in Christian history. The Factbook Notable People dataset brings together information from across your library on key figures in Christian history.

What does it do?

For example, search “John Wesley” in Factbook, and in seconds, this new tool scours your library and offers a short description of Wesley’s role in Christian history, famous quotes, works, and links to dictionary articles for further exploration.

This new dataset is your one-stop shop for information on the most significant Christian figures. Enter the figure's name into the Factbook and get relevant quotes, notable works, dictionary articles, and more.

Open in Logos 6

Where can I learn more? 

This video gives a little more context to the Factbook.

How do I get it? 

This feature is included in Core Crossgrade and all Bronze-level packages and higher. Shop all packages that include this feature.

This screenshot is incorrect. It's showing a Biblical Person rather than a Notable Person.

Thanks, Mark. It's been updated.

Is 131 Christians Everyone Should Know the only resource quotes are pulled from?  It seems like I can hide this resource and still see quotes, so it seems pre-compiled rather than dynamic by library, right?

Also is this the case with all the LCV resources, or should I make sure they are unhidden?

Factbook is pre-compiled.  You'll notice that Library Results (Person search) are different to Dictionaries (Topic search, based on LCV).

Why would you hide them, given that any suggested search will fail!?
