Hey all, hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas? Im in need of some desperate help of how to set up a my collection of commentary. I guess the real issue is I don't know what commentary is classified what?(academic, Intermediate, and Expository or whatever)?And further more I don't know what they mean so its hard to classify them. So I decided in an effort to maximize my software to post a list of my commentaries and see if somebody anybody would help a young preacher out with how they would be classified and then put into L4!!!! I've already have done single volume collection based on the information on the wiki page but these other ones I need help on...  Here they are.. Thanks for help in advance....

And I hope the same for you, Jerry!!! I'm a little stuffed with holiday dinner at the moment, but all is good.

Looks like I'm OK with my hard drive at the moment....

You can get quite good of sorting on the BestCommentaries.com. They have a code at each item. There is much information there on the series and individual commentaries.

Thank you, John. I had most of my categorized, but that helped me refine my thinking and provided great assistance in finding some I had missed. Yes

Very good list John, and helpful. 

Do you think that in addition to being classified Classical, the CCGNT could also be considered Exegetical?

Mike,

 

Exegetical may even be a better place for CCNt. Pulpit is somewhat homeletical... I think you should tweak my classifications to suite how you want to access these resources in your studies..and you can duplicate commentaries into several collections if you wish.

First of all let me say thanks for ALL of the help you guys have giving in this post to my question. One more question I have went in and added all the steps giving to set up my collection and you know its always that one problem that won't let you complete you task. I've put all of my commentary series in but this one series will not show up at all it is the works of John Bunyan. How can I put this series in to one of the collection I've made?

Hi Jerry,

From the Collections panel menu, open the collection that you want to add John Bunyan to and add the following phrase to the Rule:

OR series:"works of John Bunyan"
