I have been messing around with making different collections. I am wanting to make one devoted to apologetic books only. Is there an easy way to do this or must one go through the library book by book and try and judge them by the cover?
Also is there a place where people share their collections and one can just copy and paste them. (Am i even asking this question right .LOL)
thanks for your help, earl

This is the rule I use: it's not very elegant, but it does a pretty good job of finding most of what I am looking for. It also depends what you define as Apologetics: whereas I'd count Polkinghorne's books on faith and science as apologetic, I have indcluded them. You'll notice I have used a mytag as part of the selection - this is simply because I found myself adding so many books manually that I added the tag in the end. 

The search string I use is: 

(apologetics OR science OR Mytag:Apologetics)ANDNOT((author:Wells,Laniak)OR(title:"Christian Theology",)OR type:lexicon))

The bit after the ANDNOT gets rid of the theology books, Hebrew lexicons and books by H G Wells that the search finds. I also somehow get the Quran included.

Hi Earl,

In my apologetics collection I have quite a few that I have manually added (+ Plus these resources) but the string I use is:

Apologetics OR author:geisler OR title:"basic questions" OR author:lindsay OR apologetic  OR  mormon* OR watchtower OR worldview OR atheist OR "jehovah* witness*" OR evolution OR author:copan

...and I've found it quite helpful. You may also be interested in checking out these Example Collections to get other ideas for search strings.

Yes! I'd suggest the genre filter: https://vyrso.com/products/search?q=&Genre=Theology&Genre_Theology=Apologetics&start=&sort=savings&pageSize=60 - I ordered it by savings, so you can see there are quite some interings titles on sale, including "Come Let Us Reason" from Paul Copan & William Lane Craig.
