The Names of God interactive is good for seeing all the names throughout the entire Bible, but can I search for the Names of God within a particular book (or collection of books)?  For example, what are the names used in Isaiah (or among all the prophetic writings)?

I don't believe this is possible at the moment - see https://community.logos.com/forums/p/114047/798510.aspx#798510 for an earlier discussion of this

Logos 7.1 Beta 4  has a Names of God filter for Speaker that includes Isaiah

Search for <Person God> in Isaiah includes more than names.

What is on the left side is exactly what I was looking for: Names sorted by frequency, not by reference order.

I guess I will have to wait for 7.1....

Thanks.

Graham:

I searched for "Names of God" in the Logos 7 forum because that is the version I have and the one in which this feature was released.  I should have thought of searching the Now forum, where new features are added first.

Thanks for the link.

You can do that in 7.0 (the screenshot below is from 7.0 SR2)

But note this just gives you names of God where Isaiah is speaking, not those occurences in his book where he isn't speaking

Graham:

It looks like this is a list of names when Isaiah is speaking and in the course of words he (Isaiah) mentions God in direct speech. 

This is a good start, but not complete. It does not show all the names that are used of God in the Book of Isaiah, nor does it give a proper account of all instances.  Example: in the list produced it mentioned that "Holy One of Israel" occurs three times, yet this phrase is used of God about 25 times in the book as a whole.

Agreed - and this is what I was trying to point out.

As I mentioned in my previous post I don't think it is currently possible to do what you want to do.
