We currently have a number of predefined reading plans in Logo/Verbum, e.g. Chronological Bible Reading Plan, Historical Plan, M'Cheyne Reading Plan, Optina 'Kellia" Lectionary . . . However, there are certain plans that come up over and over in the forums that could certainly benefit from being predefined.  In addition, there are many non-Biblical resources that have standard reading plans associated with them e.g. the Heidelberg Catechism, the Works of Calvin, the Summa Theologica, John Climacus (traditional Lent).

I would like

  1. Logos to tell us if they could "easily" convert our custom reading plans into predefined plans OR, if that is not feasible, tell us what format they need to generate predefined plans.
  2. For Logos to open a period of time for us to contribute plans on a regular basis ... along with some basic parameters as to how they determine what is of general use
  3. For users to list below, what plans they might contribute so that Logos has a sense of the available resources.

I could contribute:

  1. John Climacus Lenten reading plan
  2. Calvin's Institutes in a Year
  3. Summa Theologica 2 year plan (actually a bit over)
  4. Heidelberg Catechism (1 year)
  5. Westminster Standards in 30 days
  6. Nag Hammadi introductory reading plan

I’m going through Calvin’s Institutes this year, and it was quite the task to create that plan. I wanted it over about a year and on weekdays only. I was typing in reference ranges into the Institutes opened in one panel (to make sure I keyed it in right), and then dragging and dropping that tab into the custom reading plan creator day by day by day. It took hours. It would be great if i could generate a reading plan and, say, exclude these number of pages in the front and back of the book, and then neatly and automatically divide the guts of the book into days along and neatly according to the section indexing.

and I love the ones in your list. I plan on creating a plan for myself for next year to go through Turretin’s 3-volume work in Logos.
