Richard Wilson:
Here is an update to my Index of Bible Studies, with the addition of the contents of a couple of Logos 9 packages and a few other books I have added to my library. There are now 2134 Logos resources included and 67,620 links. I will repeat here the instructions to use it.

Thanks Richard.

Richard, does this very cool utility support Verbum? I'm getting an error message (running Verbum) that Logos is not running:

************** Exception Text **************

It should support Verbum as well. There are technical details, that both Verbum and Logos should export the same COM object. I'm not sure if that is true, but nobody has mentioned a problem with Verbum in the previous years, so it should be true. The problem might be that the object exported is not properly registered in Windows. Two suggestions:

1. Did you unzip the downloaded zip into a new directory, that contained not only the program that you executed but also another file?

2. You can try to register the COM object manually. You need to find the main program. With Logos, it is c:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\Logos\Logos.exe , so with Verbum it might be c:\users\<username>\AppData\Local\Verbum\Verbum.exe , but I'm not sure. Anyway, then you need to open a Run window (for example, press the Windows key and while it is still down press the R key), and type a command and execute a command there. With Logos, the command is %LOCALAPPDATA%\Logos\Logos.exe /register , so with Verbum it might be %LOCALAPPDATA%\Verbum\Verbum.exe /register . But if you found a different file name or directory, use that.

Thank you Richard, manually registering verbum.exe did the trick.

BTW, your path/naming assumptions for Verbum were correct.

-----

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 can 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 message https://community.logos.com/forums/p/65323/1093313.aspx#10933132654.Index Bible Studies.docx gives graphical instructions for this installation.

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 cannot 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. To create this personal index (Windows only):
1. Download and unzip the MyIndex.zip file.
2. 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.
3. Open the My Index Bible Studies.rtf file in Word or another word processor and save it as a docx file.
4. Create a personal book from that docx file, in the same way as described in the previous paragraph setting the type to "Bible commentary".

How can I do this on mac? I just finishing adding to Logos but there's so many resources that I don't have it's unusable. Fantastic idea though!

Unfortunately, the filtered version of it uses a technology that's only available on Windows (Richard clarified this back in 2014)

Do you also have a PC? I would think you could install logos on a pc, run the file, and then port the resulting document to your Mac. A lot of work though
