How can I build my own Systematic Theology?

Also the guide does not search all my Systematic Theology books. How can I fix it?

Christian Alexander:
How can I build my own Systematic Theology?

I would start with 30 years of study of systematic theology Wink i.e. I don't know what you are asking. Read the documentation  Thompson, Jeremy. Lexham Systematic Theology Ontology: Dataset Documentation. Bellingham, WA: Faithlife, 2019. to understand what is required for the Systematic Theology Guide to consider specific books. One can ask for additional resources to be aligned on feedback.faithlife.com

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

Hi Christian Alexander:

Have you taken a look at:

https://blog.logos.com/build-systematic-theology/

Then for methodology:

https://blog.logos.com/logos-tech-tip-quickly-find-a-topic-in-systematic-theologies/

Then there are references you may want to include:

https://academic.logos.com/writing-a-systematic-theology-you-must-discuss-these-references/

Finally to get some ideas:

https://thirdmill.org/seminary/course.asp/vs/BYT

With respect the last one hopefully Faithlife will eventually develop a course to allow one to build own theology taking into consideration the controversies in different points. 

The large amount of resources available would let one explore the different positions and then come to own conclusions as to what seems to be best construct given the available evidence.

Just remember there are standards:

Hope this helps.
