If I study pseudepigraphal books, how can Logos help me?

I have a lot of books in my personal library that refer to Enoch, for example, in their indices.  I have been making personal books of a lot of the indices of the books in my physical library, so I can refer to them when studying a passage or subject.  

But for these books, I'm not seeing Logos helping me.  I tried a passage guide on a passage in Enoch.  I got two  hits for a Greek word, but nothing else.

So there's really no point in even creating a personal book with references to Enoch, because Logos will not look them up.

Is this correct?

Have you tried the "Cited By" tool? If you do, you can create a link set between the Enoch, which you are reading, and the Cited by window, and it will search various collections and display all references to the passage. When I do this, I see many references from various Lexica in my library, but I could focus the results I want by creating various collections.

Of course, this only shows where there are actual links to the text you are reading - and not all Logos resources have the same level of linking to every datatype.

I never heard of that.  I had to look for it.

That could do it.  

This gives me enough to continue my indexing and making personal books.

Thank you very much

Make sure your library has good resources from authors like JH Charlesworth, RH Charles, S Docherty, and recent release by Daniel Gurtner.

thank you

I had never heard of Docherty or Gurtner, though I have some of Gurtner's books.
