Before there are a large number of these resources which would make the change more disruptive, I would like to see a separate type for the commentaries designed to be accessed by liturgical date as in the Quickstart layout "Lectionary Reading"

MJ,

Which commentaries fulfill this description?

Meanwhile, Jesus kept on growing wiser and more mature, and in favor with God and his fellow man.

International Standard Version. (2011). (Lk 2:52). Yorba Linda, CA: ISV Foundation.

Some of the series that I know fall into this category are:

  • Lectionary Reflections
  • Twelve Months of Sundays
  • Timeless Homilies for Deacons
  • Feasting on the Word
  • Lent for Everyone
  • Lift up You Hearts
  • Sermon Studies from Northwestern Publishing House

I agree this would make these resources useful for those who use lectionarie. One clarification: Are you proposing ”dual functionality“ so that they show up in passage guide as they do now for those from a non- liturgical background who have these resouces in their library in addition to a lectionary layout by date for those from a liturgical background i.e. resources have both bible and date milestone.

Yes, if they are indexed with both liturgical calendar and Bible indexes, they should work just as they do now. It would change the behavior for those that are currently type:monograph.

This is the main reason I bought Logos this past week. I want something to help with my preparation for Sunday. Thank you for bringing this up.

Welcome to the forums ... those of us who use lectionaries still have to be vocal as we are a minority and lectionaries are a relatively late addition to the products.

I think this change would be truly helpful.

I believe I casually mentioned this elsewhere recently but we're currently working on labeling all of our Bible commentaries so they can be more descriptive and/or make it easy to filter.

This is also going expand what we identify as a Bible commentary--specifically this means you'll see more Lectionary based resources being identified as a commentary.

Is that going to make the problem worse not better? We need to be able to filter to find commentaries that are accessible by liturgical date so that we can prioritize them to use in the date based Quickstart Layouts. And we have two separate priority lists - one for strictly Bible index access and one for liturgical date access.
