Several weeks ago I started making an index of Bible studies in Logos: sermons, meditations, outlines, commentaries that are not marked as commentaries, etc. - anything that would not show up easily in the passage guide. The attached file can be compiled as a Personal Book in Logos. The aims are to help me when I prepare material on a given passage, but also to get to know some of the books in my library that I would otherwise not look it. The index is far from complete and is not perfect, but since others in the forum have mentioned they were thinking of doing something similar, I though I would share what I have done so far, so that we do not duplicate our efforts. Others can insert what I have done, just as I would be happy to included what others will do.

Naturally, an index like this depends upon your own library. I have listed books that I have (Platinum in Logos 4 and Logos 5, plus various extras from Logos and third parties), so you may find that some of the links lead to books you do not have.

As time permits, I will try to add more books to this index, and if so I will post updated copies later on.

Wow, Richard, this is great!

Did you do them by hand, or could you somehow fetch a bible index from the database?

By chance I stumbled over perhaps the single typo in it: in the section on Mt 28:18-20, the link [[My Utmost for His Highest >> logosres:utmost;ref=DayOfYear.Oct_14]] wrongly says it's Mt 18 ...

Thanks again for this great work, much appreciated!

Mostly by hand, but it isn't as hard as it seems. I show the table of contents on the left hand side of the pane, click each section in turn, copy as Wiki (CTRL+ALT+C), and then in Word type the reference (which is where errors can come in, thanks for the correction) and copy the link in Logos.

This really is impressive. I found that you worked through 295 books and made 5869 references! For those who want to check whether they can help to make this comprehensive index even more complete, I added a list of those books you've already covered.

EDIT: deleted the *.docx here and posted an updated version below /EDIT

I corrected the second typo in this process as well, a missing arrow character in Jn 11:39 [[To the Work! To the Work! >> logosres:totheworkmoody;ref=Page.p_7]]

Thanks again for sharing this!

Peace to all!          *smile*                             Earlier I said, "Incredible"!                    Now, I add "Awesome"!                     I have to make a decision quite soon as tok whether or not this is the "way I should go" in my studies and research at my age and in my situation. 

                   Richard, the thoroughness of your brilliant conception really is incredible!     *smile*               Love the concept!           However, if I use this concept, will I save time or would it cost me time.             But, what a roller-coaster experience it would be!

                                                                                    Indeed!

 

Please let me share an important (to me!!!!)                poem                           Hope it's helpful to you for meditation on this day!

Lord I Have Time

By Michel Quoist

I've been out, Lord,
Outside people were going out.
They were going,
They were coming,
They were walking,
They were rushing.

Motor bikes were rushing by,
Cars were rushing by,
Trucks were rushing by.
The street was rushing,
The city was rushing,
The whole world was rushing.

They were rushing so as not to lose time.
They were rushing after time to catch up with time,
to gain time.
Goodbye sir, excuse me, I haven't time.
I'll come back, I can't wait, I haven't time.

I'd like to help you, but I haven't time.
I can't accept, for lack of time.
I can't reflect, read, I'm snowed under, I haven't time.

The child - he's playing,
he hasn't time at the moment....later on...
The schoolboy - he's got his homework,
he hasn't time...later on...
The student - he's got his lectures, and such a lot of work,
he hasn't time...later on...
The young man - he's playing sport,
he hasn't time...later on...
The married man - he has his house to run,
he hasn't time...and later on...
The father - he has his children,
he hasn't time...and later on...
The grandparents - they have their grandchildren,
they haven't time...later on...
They're sick! They have their cares,
they haven't time...later...
They're dying, they have...
Too late! They haven't any more time!
That's how they're all rushing after time, Lord.

They pass by on earth, always rushing, hurrying,
jostling, weighed down, snowed under, nearly demented.
And they never get there, there's not enough time.
Despite all their efforts, there's never enough time.

Lord, you must have made a mistake somewhere.
There's been a tremendous oversight.
The hours are too short, the days are too short,
lives are too short.

You, who are outside of time,
You smile, Lord, to see us struggle with it.
And you know what You are doing.
You don't make mistakes when You allot time to men.
You give to each one the time to do what You want him to do.

But is it wrong to lose time, to waste time, to kill time,
For time is Your gift to us -
But a perishable gift, a gift that doesn't keep.
Lord, I have time
I have all my time,
All the time You gave me,
The years of my life,
The days of my years,
They are all mine. Mine to fill up calmly, peacefully,
But to fill up completely, right to the brim -
To offer to You, that of their stale water
You may make a generous wine, as once at Cana for a
human wedding feast.

I don't ask this evening Lord,
for time to do this or that.
I ask for the grace to do conscientiously,
in the time that You gave me,
the thing that You want me to do.

There are actually a lot less than 295 books done. Usually when I copy a Logos link, it is pasted in as Page..., a date, or something similar, so that I can do a quick search and replace in Word to put the book title. But in the book "Sermon Starters", the Logos link was pasted as the title of the sermon. So I left it, partly because it was a useful title (unlike the page number) and partly because it was not possible to easily change all the titles to the book name. Since there are 208 sermons in that book, I have in fact indexed only 88 books. Still got 1720 to go in my library, although most of those do not have anything to indexed. (I automatically excluded a lot of books from indexing, eg those with the commentary type, Perseus, Bibles, etc.)

I have updated this file, adding more books to the index and correcting a few errors. To make it more useful to others, I have concentrated this time on books in base packages. In fact, I have indexed all the books in the Logos 5 Minimal Crossgrade and Starter packages, as well as many others.

Peace, Richard!                    *smile*                          Thank you very much!                              Do you plan to put your "books covered" list in your next document, since I have different books in my library than you have in your library.

              Actually, I should just "get to work," eh?   *smile*                        But, it is nice to "piggyback" and gain ground on someone else's work!    *smile*

Peace, Bruce!        *smile*                 Absolutely amazing!                      However, I have not done very much with the file personally!   Perhaps your post will inspire me to begin to tackle it, eh???             Thanks for posting!

I'm still working on improving it. In about a week I should have another version ready, with all the books in Platinum (version 5). So it will be a lot bigger.

Personally I use it when preparing Bible studies. After I have read a few commentaries on the passage, I look up the references in this file, which often give me other ideas for the Bible study that the commentaries don't give.

Peace, Richard!                                 Usually my weeks pass way too quickly!            *smile*                        However, this coming week is welcome to pass very quickly indeed because of the "goodies" attached to your sharing when you have the opportunity for your new version!

                  Am looking forward to it and appreciate the fact that you do indeed "share" with your brothers and sisters.

I have updated this file, a list of explanations and comments on Bible passages that would not be picked up by the Passage Guide. It includes all the books in the Logos 5 Platinum package that have such explanations, and many others beside. There is a complete list of books included, sorted according the package they are in or where I got them from, at the end of the document. That way who has different packages to me can see which of their books are included in the file.

Richard this is great!

How did you go about finding all these resources on each chapter? Did you use the cited by tool and add anything that looked useful, or do you just slowly add these as you do your own private study?

If we all worked together and added sermon links into this resource (maybe as a separate section after each bible study section on each chapter), it would have just about everything that Logos doesn't pick up...

I'm also considering making a docx with hyperlinks of all the tools online I can find for any given chapter of Scripture. (I'm thinking mainly old commentaries that aren't in Logos in places like archive.org etc.) Probably too big of a time investment for now, but it would be a great thing to include in this resource as a third section on each chapter...

Any takers for adding Logos sermon links and/or web links?...

Thanks again!
