I have good reference books in epub format that would be nice to import into Logos.  I'd like to have the scripture references linked to my favorite Bible like it is for all the books in my Logos library.  Can this be done?

The only mechanism we have to import books into the Logos environment is by creating Personal Books.

This involves creating a .docx source document and compiling it within Logos.

So there is the technical question of whether you can convert the epub resource to .docx (and there are tools around for doing this sort of thing and discussions on the forums) and the legal question as to whether it is permissible in terms of the licence under which you acquired the epub files (and I believe this varies in different countries)

Under "fair use" it may be somewhat legal to do for your own usage. One could use Calibre. But  you would need to open the resulting docx file to add tagging. like chapters and such.
