This seems simple enough, but can't seem to figure it out. I'd like to search all my Logos books for references to "Luke 15:7." When I do an "everything" search, it includes my commentaries, but not all my books. For example, I know there's a reference to this verse in Desiring God by John Piper, but it does not show up in my search results. Can anyone help me figure this out? Thank you!

Try searching in "All Resources" instead. It should bring up that reference in every book in your library.

I'd search in a Basic search for  <lk 15:7>  in all resources - it will find the references even if part of a section, e.g. when the whole parable is cited

If you search as indicated, with the quote marks, you are looking for text that is an exact match e.g. Luke 15:7, and it will ignore Lk 15:7.

If you search for Luke 15:7 (without quotes) it will be interpreted as a Bible reference and results will include Lk 15:7 and references that include v.7 e.g. Lk 15:3-7.

The more formal <Luke 15:7> (with angle brackets) will produce the same results. But <=Luke 15:7> specifies an exact match for verse 7.
