How would I search my library to identify any chapters in any book with a chapter title having the word "Truth" in it?

In a Basic Search, click All Text and select:

  • Heading text
  • Large Text

Then type truth in the Search box.

Note that Dave's answer (which is the same I would have given) is a heuristic - it is based on the very incomplete manual tagging of Heading Text and the automatic tagging of Large Text (large compared to the usual font of the respective resource) and may yield some - or many - false positives and may also miss some chapter titles that are not tagged and printed in the same font size as the resources body text.

Alternate search syntax for Dave's suggestion is: (can be used in Logos & Verbum Web App)

([field heading,largetext] Truth)

Learned adding [match case] to search turned off alternate spellings so modified search of All Text in All Resources to:

[match case] ([field heading,largetext] Truth, Truths)

Thanks for the help.  This string accomplished what I wanted.

([field heading, largetext] Truth)
