Resource: Edwards, James R. The Gospel according to Mark. The Pillar New Testament Commentary. Grand Rapids, MI; Leicester, England: Eerdmans; Apollos, 2002.

On page 3 select the heading number 2 (authorship and place . . .).

Right click to open Context Menu.

Select Book Guide label on left and Copy reference: Search on the right.

This provides {Label BookGuide WHERE Comment ~ <BookGuideComment Book Guide Comment 20 210> AND Reference ~ <Mk>}.

This label returns no results in a Basic Search all resources.  Even if cut to {Label BookGuide} it returns no results. With the cryptic comment format and lack of results, I doubt that this needed to be exposed as a Search argument.


Harangue - this appears to be a replacement for the Bible Books Supplemental Dataset documented in Help. It provides the following labels: Additional Information, Background, Canon, Content, Form, Meaning, Objects, Origin.

The new format costs us useful functions:

  • the ability to search on a subset of resources to target specific approaches rather than the 20+ results in Factbook
  • the ability to code resources not coded by FL so that they appear in the Search results

Faithlife giveth and taketh without notification ... who would think to test such functions in beta when it's not mentioned in the change notes... no you hit them as a problem when you need the function.

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

I've created a case to remove this.
