1. One of the features I wish existed in Logos is the ability to go through Guides, Searches, Tools ... entries marking them useful, not useful, not yet checked. This would replicate my old paper an pencil star, blank, cross-out task lists. Logos occasionally allows a useful/not useful star as in the Commentaries Section but beyond that one has to "fake it".

2. The way I "fake it" is to save the references as a Passage List when possible. A number of the Guide section headers provides this option on a right click.

3. samples from the Passage Guide - Ancient Literature Section note it includes non-Biblical references.

Catholic Topical Index

Parallel Passages - note how the Passage List preserves the structure through headings

Cross-references - bottom portion (sources other than TSK and NTSK)

Note through an intermediate step one can also get the TSK and NTSK references

Note that the title for the NTSK is malformed and you need to edit it with a recognizable title.

Literary typing claims to create a Passage List but failed in this case.

An example from the Biblical People, Places, Things, Events realm. Not the count is so large viewing them is highly unlikely to be feasible.

4. Certain resources are also candidates for this treatment e.g. topical indexes such as Roza, Devin. Fulfilled in Christ: The Sacraments—A Guide to Symbols and Types in the Bible and Tradition. Bellingham, WA: Verbum, 2014;

Bullinger, Ethelbert William. Figures of Speech Used in the Bible. London; New York: Eyre & Spottiswoode; E. & J. B. Young & Co., 1898. etc.

5. To use the list as a work list, use the insert heading to make the categories you need - you may wish to sort into pro topic x, against topic x or as I do simply useful, not checked and (deleted as not useful).

Note the x in the circle allows you to delete the entry.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
