How would I best go about searching a particular grouping of books for a particular subject? Like searching Luke, Acts, and Hebrews for Angels? 

I know about manipulating the search tool, I'm just wondering if there is a more efficient and accurate way of doing so.

Thank you!

"subject" is very broad.

In the case of Angels, I first searched for "angel", and right-clicked the word in the bible (a reverse interlinear like ESV). Then I looked for "Angels" or similar in the categories on the RHS, expanding levels as necessary. I chose the Label,  Supernatural Being, then selected Search on the other side. I shortened the term to {Label Supernatural Being WHERE  Type ~ "Angel"}.

Next, enter Lk, Acts, Heb  in the Reference box, and click the expanded text below it i.e. Luke; Acts; Hebrews.  Then search.

Provide other examples of "subjects" to see if I'm understanding you correctly.
