I've tried in vain to find instructions on how to do a topic search. For example, if I search "baptism" I get three hits under Topic and "look it up," but they do not include my Nelsons' Bible Dictionary, which is a favorite.

So...

a. How do I do a more exhaustive topic search

b. How can I control what resources appear in the "Look it up" list of topic hits?

I'm pretty sure Nelson's has a topic for "baptism"!

The topic search is very much still a work in progress. As I understand it, it's full functionality is dependent upon retagging of resources.

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

You can't improve the search but click one of the Dictionary results and use the right & left arrow keys in the new tab to scroll through your dictionaries. It should include Nelson's.

You can't! Logos have a select list of dictionaries they use in that section:

  • Anchor Yale Bible Dictionary
  • ISBE, rev. ed.
  • Eerdmans Dictionary of the Bible
  • Eerdman's Bible Dictionary,
  • Baker Encyclopedia of the Bible
  • New Bible Dictionary
  • Tyndale Bible Dictionary

If you have 2 or 3 of these you can still get results from other dictionaries as per above.

Here are some discussions with input from Logos:-
