In Logos 8, when I wanted to read commentaries of Revelation from Library, I typed the word Revelation. But unexpectedly there were Biblical Studies of other Biblical books (such as Ephesians and Romans). What should I type to have only commentaries of Revelation?

Try "subject:revelation" - and you still may get "wider" resources but it should be more focused.

Even when I typed "Revelation" (with quotation marks), there are still unwanted books such as Mark and Zondervan Dictionary of Biblical Imagery.

Thanks.

Yes - simply trying individual words (or phrases) without qualification results in Logos searching all the metatdate (descriptive text) associated with the resource. I don't know which Mark you are referring to but in the example below the word "revelation" appears in the description. Hence my recommendation to use the "subject" prefix which forces Logos to just search within the subject text associated with the resource

Library subject can be further filtered by clicking Type facet for Bible Commentary (OR use Type:Commentary)

Note: some Commentary volumes have more than Revelation while some others are a subset of Revelation.

I'd do it this way:

Click on the library facet "Bible NT" then the facet for Revelation. Here's what it does with my library:

It might not hit everything but does a pretty good job of filtering out other things you might not want.

Because revelation is a common theological topic as well as the title of a Bible book, I would use the search filter 'subject:"Bible. N.T. Revelation"' adding --Commentary if that is more precisely what you want.

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