NB.Mick:

Incidentally, I saw that I don't own the book with the most number of references in the index (one homily for a verse from every chapter of the bible), which reads like a great resource and goes for only $18:

Our Daily Homily is an important book in the Index, as it means that there is at least one link for every chapter, and so I can put a milestone tag for every chapter. There are still some chapters with only one link in them, for example Leviticus 27, Numbers 18, and 2Chronicles 4.

Wow!! Thanks, Richard. This is a work of art! I appreciate the extraordinary amount of time you took to compile the data.

My log file showed:

[Error] Font 'Cambria' is not a valid font for use in resources.
[Warning] Unknown data type in use: topic+topics

I'm not sure that this is a serious thing, but just wanted to let you know.

thanX!! again

The first one started turning up in all Personal Books last December. Nobody knows why, but it is harmless. See

The second, according to https://wiki.logos.com/PB_%E2%80%93_Warnings_$26_Errors#Unknown_Datatype , is because the Personal Book links to books that you do not have. If you want to avoid this error, you can create a personal Index of Bible Studies that contains only the books you own. The previous messages in this thread explain how to do that.

Thanks, Richard! Now that you mention it I remember the font issue. And no problem on the personal index.

Thanks again Richard! 

Logos should use your work and index all these resources! 

Or maybe just hire you!

Yes, this adds inestimable value to any library. It should be 'sticky'd' to the top of the Files forum for new users to see and for everyone to be reminded to rerun after every base package/bundle purchase.

Here is an update to my Index of Bible Studies, with the addition of the contents of a couple of Logos 8 packages and a few other books I have added to my library. I will repeat here the instructions to use it:

-----

This file contains links to sermons, meditations, outlines, journal articles, Bible study guides, and more that do not appear in the Passage Guide. (Exception: some sermons now appear in the Passage Guide, but did not when I started, and I thought I would not remove them.) It is useful especially when preparing Bible studies or sermons on a certain passage, to find more ideas on the passage from your library that you could use.

To install the Index, download the Index Bible Studies.docx file, then use the Personal Books tool of Logos to create a new personal book. You can use whatever title you like, but it is best to set the type to "Bible commentary". On page 3 of this thread you can find a book cover that you can optionally use.

The index contains the books in my Logos library – there is a list of the included books at the end of the Index Bible Studies.docx file. Naturally, I can not include books that are in your library but not in mine. However, it is possible to exclude books that are in my library but not in yours, which makes the resulting personal book easier to use. This is possible only in Windows; the Mac version of Logos does not allow it. To do this, download and unzip the MyIndex.zip file. There should then be two files in a directory. Start the Index Bible Studies.exe program, which will open Logos (if it is not already open), read the names of all the books in your library, and then create a file My Index Bible Studies.rtf in your Documents directory. Open that file in Word or another word processor, and then save it as a docx file. Then create a personal book from that docx file.

-----

A few statistics: there are now 1730 Logos resources included and almost 60,000 links, with more than 3,000 new links since the previous version in June. Most of these new links come from one resource, Handfuls on Purpose, which now has the record of being the most linked resource (1791 links). Second with 1189 links is Our Daily Homily, then the Keller Sermon Archive with 1179. The Spurgeon Sermon Collection actually has more links (3667), but in Logos they are divided between 63 different resources.

Thanks a lot! 

My L8 concordance even claims it's 1742 works with over 60k references. This work is a great gift to our community! Thank you for updating it.

Here is another update to this file to create a PBB, with 120 new books added (from the Unfiltered package, Verbum Cloud, and various free or discounted books). There are instructions to use the file in my message on December 23.

6835.Index Bible Studies.docx

3036.MyIndex.zip

---

Some more statistics:

The chapter with most links is Romans 8 with 620 links, followed by Matthew 5 (596), Matthew 6 (454), John 1 (435), and Hebrews 11 (406). Thanks to Our Daily Homily, all chapters have at least one link. The five chapter with exactly one link are Leviticus 27, Deuteronomy 25, Judges 12, 1Chronicles 26 and 2Chronicles 4.

Thank you so much, Richard - looking back, it's now over six years you are sharing this incredible help with us!

For those forum users new to it, I'll just include the cover picture once more, as it is buried on page 3 from 2014:

Appreciate this so much, Richard! For the first time I am getting an error message.

"Error finding your books. Probably Logos was closed. Please restart the program and do not close Logos."

Any ideas? I am not exiting. Have tried closing all open books in Logos. I assume the doc you supply is your own listing and the program reduces it down to another doc applicable only to my own collection.
