Please suggest any books in Logos, if not elsewhere, that I can leverage to guide me on how to go about writing a book on a Christian subject, that I am tasked with.

Generally I believe I can write and present well. The ask is more about guidelines for book authoring.

Also any suggestions welcome.

It’s google, but at least is something: https://goinswriter.com/tips-writing-book/ 

Logos only produced this hit: https://www.logos.com/product/4103/how-to-write-a-handbook-based-on-the-english-bible

Here are three more that are available in Faithlife/Logos that may be worth a look. Not sure if they are what you are after. There are probably many others and I would also be interested in further suggestions. All the best with the book project.

Not a direct answer to your question (other will have better suggestions), but I have a suggestive question. Why not consider another format for such a resource, and just keep Bible Study related resources in Logos? Just curious.

Thanks to all who provided guidance. I am finding that very helpful.

As to why Logos: I use Kindle platform for secular books and prefer to have that segregation. When something is related to Bible I prefer that to be in one place which for me is Logos.
