I get more results with this search string:

The word proximity criterion is not redundant because Q is almost always discussed in relation to one of the words in the brackets (you could add "tradition"). 

The type:commentary criterion does narrow it down to this resource type only (other results are included otherwise).

You can dispense of "Bible ~" : {Milestone <Mt-Lk>} is equivalent and shorter (produces the same number of results.

how did you get the year of publication, abbreviation for series, and author's name to appear in front of almost every commentary? Have you manually edited the names of each commentary?

If memory serves, KS4J manually inputs the data into the title line for each commentary. It must have taken aaaagggggeeesssss!

Took many months last year to add title prefixes. Thankful could create a "Top 2 Commentaries" series that has volumes from a variety of series:

FYI: Jerome finished a commentary on Daniel in 420, which was translated into English in 1958 so title modification has prefix (with leading 0 for sorting) and suffix (with translation publication date)

Having series abbreviation in title is helpful when desire to change series for a volume back to original.

I prefer the Griesbach hypothesis principally because it is the only one that assumes that the Evangelists were authors or writers of the gospels, and not mere editors or redactors

You might also like The Progressive Publication of Matthew by Ward Powers who also argues that the Evangelists were authors and for the priority of Matthew.

Can confirm that this process takes a good bit of time on the front end. Can also confirm it is well worth it. I did mine slightly different, with the goal of having the series name be the first thing displayed in the passage guide, with the author and date at the end. Regardless of what order this information is put in, it is helpful for distinguishing situations such as the one shown below where the Pillar set has two volumes on Romans. I can quickly see who wrote which volumes and when each volume was published.

I wasn't aware of that particular theory, so thanks for the heads-up! On the strength of your recommendation, I bought the eBook. So, if it turns out to be rubbish, it's all your fault! Wink

I found his theory quite interesting—and believable. However, I did not study the supporting details, which make up the majority of the book.

Passage Guide screen shot for comparison of Title modifications:

NICNT has two volumes for Romans. Moo's volume is in my "Top 2 Commentaries" series. Two Pillar volumes are adjacent. Having Series abbreviation in title allows Library filtering when volumes are in "Top 2 Commentaries" and original series: e.g. NICNT

Please Keep Smiling 4 Jesus, how did you obtain the year of publication of each resource?

Logos library seems to show electronic publication date for most of the resources.

I quite like the way you have done it and would be putting in the time to do it for my whole library if only I can obtain the year of publication for each resource.

Thanks.

The publication date is available (separate from the electronic publication date). Just right-click on any of the columns and you'll see the options.

Thanks Yasmin for your response.

Am aware of that separate column for the publication date. What I have found out is that quite a number of the resources I checked at random especially older publications do not seem right.

Here are a few examples: 

Matthew Henry's Commentary 1994

Barth’s Church Dogmatics 2004

Calvin commentaries 2010

Crossway Classic Commentaries: Most are dated in the 1990s

Lange’s Commentary 2008

Some even have n.d. which I take to meaning "no date of publication known"

Except there is some plausible explanation I doubt if the year of publication for these few examples are correct. And this may just be the tip of the iceberg!

It is important that one has reliable data before embarking on this type of time consuming project. Hence my request.

Yes, I now see what you're saying. For the older commentaries, you'd probably have to search our their original publication date online or elsewhere. Or maybe inside the resource itself, if it's a translation, reprint etc

Personal quirk is preference for year written. Sources for authorship year: Resource Information, Title Page, Preface(s), Biographical, which can include comparison with other resource(s). Many years for title prefixes are easy to find. If year has challenges, one option is forum discussion.

Some years are challenging. For example, Calvin's dedication date in "Catholic Epistles" is Geneva Jan 24, 1551 (for year Calvin completed writing of 1 John). Translator's Preface includes Sep 29, 1855 so my title for Calvin's "Catholic Epistles" has 1551 prefix (Authorship) and 1855 suffix (translation from Latin to English)

Crossway Classic commentaries for 1-3 John includes Calvin for 1 John and Matthew Henry for 2-3 John so prefix years of 1551-1714 reflect Calvin's authorship and Matthew Henry's human tent departure. After comparing with Matthew Henry Commentary, changed 1714 to 1728 to show assistants completed Matthew Henry's commentary (Preface Five has year 1721).

Thanks Yasmin and KS4J for your responses.

The suggestions as to where to look are useful, and the screen captures from KS4J are especially very helpful.

I now know where and how to look when am ready to start.

If any date(s) you find are different, let's discuss. Am finding some of my earlier title changes have needed later revision: e.g. now usually including Author(s) and adding prefix (while keeping resource title).

Thankful can reset Title/Series back to default value by deleting it then press enter.

Thanks KS4J for your help. I appreciate your offer to discuss dates that may be different.

I plan to start with the resources I use most often and gradually cover my whole library over time.

So, I would likely start in this order for the resources I consult most frequently:

  1. Top 6 study bibles I use most often;
  2. My go-to 6 commentaries for each bible book;
  3. Top 10 one-volume commentaries I consult most often;
  4. Top ten dictionaries/lexicons I use most often;
  5. Top ten systematic theology resources;
  6. Every resource on my ever-expanding reading list;
  7. And on till I cover my whole library. 

The emphasis is to organise the resources I use most frequently in the most efficient way for me.

Other potentially useful resources from my library will be added as I get to realise their potential usefulness.

When I encounter a different date I will post here for you to see. and discuss 

Thanks again.

I plan to start with the resources I use most often and gradually cover my whole library over time.

A suggestion is sorting Library by Reading Status into three groups:

  • Reading
  • Finished
  • Unread

Screen shot shows Reading Progress column clicked twice to sort Reading progress into descending order, followed by shift click of Type. Expanded Type:Manual to show Reading Progress rings.

Finished can include resource(s) used most often so suggest modifying Finished resources first followed by Reading resources.

For commentary prefixes, found filtering library by series was helpful when modifying titles.

Searching for Bible Milestones included results in some Monographs so added prefixes to those titles. Most Monographs have original titles (along with no plans to prefix them).

Resource Types that currently have title prefixes in my Library:

  • Bible (year suffix has Language Indicator - albeit many languages remind me of phrase "That's Greek to me")
    • : no suffix for English
    • a - Arabic
    • d - Deutsch (German)
    • e - Español (Spanish)
    • f - François (French)
    • g - Greek
    • h - Hebrew
    • i - Italian
    • L - Latin
    • s - Syriac
  • Bible Commentary
  • Bible Concordance
  • Bible Cross-Reference Index
  • Bible Notes
  • Commentary (of Apostolic Fathers)
  • Dictionary
  • Encyclopedia
  • Lexicon
  • Systematic Theology

My reading list:

I made a collection of the resources on my reading list. 

My reading list tags are:

  1. To_Read = resources I plan to read.
  2. I made a collection for my reading list with the rule: mytag:To_Read . It is updated automatically.
  3. Finished reading + date = resources I have finished reading with date finished
  4. To_Read_Again = Resources I finished reading, and which I will read again

I have not found the reading progress ring reliable: resources I have never read often show percentages as high as 50 or more while the ones I have finished reading often show low percentages. So I don't use it.

I use reading plans to pace myself as I am reading at least 7 resources each from a different category at any point in time. 

Filtering commentaries by series is useful as I have oftentimes use it to tag some of my commentaries before then making some specific collections.

The list of your resources that currently have prefixes is noted and will be help when I start. 

Thanks for all your help.
