This is really not a tip so much as an illustration of the type of breadcrumb memory that will help you understand where data is from and therefore how you can most likely access it.

1. In building the Thomas Aquinas bibliography post, I noticed a link to an unfamiliar wiki - Faithlife wiki:

2. Naturally I did the essential thing to learn Logos. I clicked on the Faithlife wiki link getting:

3. I then thought "this text seems familiar" (see the Thomas Aquinas tip of the day). Note the link to the Faithlife author page.

4. This made me curious as to what the Logos store uses on the author page. I entered "Thomas Aquinas" in the search box of the Logos store and got. Note that again I have a link to a Faithlife page.

5. Trying the link from either Logos store page, I reach the same Thomas Aquinas Faithlife author page.

6. So why does Thomas Aquinas have a Faithlife page? The only function I know that would use an author page is the Ask the Author tool. So I go back to the Factbook to open a book by Thomas Aquinas, select a bit of text and right click. Yes, there it is "Ask the author"

I have learned three interesting and useful facts:

  • There is some integration between the Logos application, the Logos store, the Faithlife wiki and Faithlife proper (groups).
  • Some expert is available to answer questions regarding Thomas Aquinas.
  • I can access the conversations with that expert via the Logos store author page.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
