Seems to provide a brief general overview of topics. It’s a survey, after all. For example, this is all I could find on the Filioque:

As the church moved forward into fifth century and beyond, it looked back on the councils of Nicaea and Constantinople as representative of that universal faith believed by all true Christians everywhere, and the creed that emerged from those councils (the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed) is still considered indicative of essential Christian dogma. While the centuries have witnessed further elaborations on the Trinity (such as Augustine’s On the Trinity as well as the controversy over the filioque), the confession has remained the same.

Graham + Darrell:

I thank you both for your replies.

This looks very useful to me, as I read a lot of sys. theo.

Graham: Hi.  Could U expand ''Find more resources on the Material World'' + perhaps post a screen shot of its list?

It opens up the Theology Guide to that place with a number of sections including particularly relevant passages - and then a list of relevant systematic theologies

Does that give you what you were looking for?

I click ''Find More Resources on Topic Such'' and I get nothing.  I run L8.

How would I fix this?

I am sorry.  I cannot follow these instructions.  My ability to do anything with computers is impoverished.

Let me describe the situation.

I am in Lexham Survey of Theology.

I click ''Find more resources on The Doctrine of the Church''

I get the Theology Guide.

Box at top is populated with, ''Doctrine of the Church''

Theo. Guide never populates.  The 4 subsections never populate: Topic, Theo Rel Passages, Recommended Reading, Systematic Theologies; all nothing.

.................As a comparison: under See Also, I click, ''Church: Nature.'' >> Voila: a Factbook populates [all by itself, as I do nothing more].

I have L8, Basic.  Aka, the free one.

The Theology Guide requires Logos 9 Silver Feature Upgrade or higher (and I assume something similar was the case for Logos 8). I expect that is the reason the Theology Guide is not populating.
