I was wondering if, when searching a lemma, if it is possible to subtotal the number of hits based upon a preset set of books. I know I can set a search range, such as Gospels, or Pauline books, but is it possible to do a search and have it categorised based upon authorship such as:

Luke (includes Luke & Acts)

Peter

John (Gospel, Letters, Revelation)

Paul (assuming the Pastorals are Pauline and Hebrews is not)

Etc.

I did a search for "heart" , Gk lemma, καρδία, and I noticed that Luke (in Luke/Acts) uses the term more frequently; this isn't a big point, but just an example. When comparing Biblical authors, I'd like to sort results by authorship, rather than only by books, and, I'd like to not have to run a bunch of separate searches to get those results. Any help here?

Hi Scott

I don't believe you can group search results by author (as you intimate there might be some debate about authorship!) but you can graph the results from a search which should provide a good starting point

For details please see http://wiki.logos.com/Graph_Bible_Search_Results

Hope this helps
