Is there a way to have every scripture reference in a book listed in a report?

Yes. Open the book. Set the font size to the smallest size. Print/Export the book. Set the page size to Tabloid, 11X17. If the book has page numbers enter the first to last page numbers (e.g. 1-1000). You can also input 1-99999 and it might work as well. If it does not have page numbers, or if you prefer, select all the sections (if a chapter has sub-heading right click on the chapter and select "select all". once the preview is available select "Copy to Clipboard". Open a new passage list. Select Add>From clipboard.

Thanks, I assumed there was a one-click solution but this will work.

It would be a nice feature. The Power Lookup took is the closest to that, but it doesn't show the whole book at once and includes all footnotes.

Using the above method, you could make your reference list for each chapter of the book. simply select the chapter to print, include a heading in the passage list, then copy verses from the clipboard, then go the the print screen and select the next chapter, add another heading, add from clipboard, etc...etc.

Interesting capability, but can someone tell me why they would do this?

If you read through a book and feel they did a particularly good job handling scripture you could use this to make a topical Bible of the issue they dealt with. I may have to do this with Piper's Desiring God. If you have two books dealing with an issue from different perspectives you can use this to see which verses the different sides use for their arguments and how they both handle the same issues.

In addition to what Halo said, if you were doing research on a given topic and had several good books on the subject, you could create and merge passage lists to come up with a unified single one to begin your research.

Appreciate the responses to my question. Didn't realize this was a capability but now will have to play around with it and you have given me some good ideas.

I just found another use for this. I am studying a topic and found a resource that had a chapter focusing on the issue. I decided to read all the verses first to how directly I thought they dealt with the topic and to think through them ahead of time before reading the chapter.
