Rosie Perera:

Anthony H:

Here's a cover to distinguish it from other content. (...)

Anthony, great job on the cover image. I'd like to use it. Could you fix it from your original file (if you still have it) to spell LOGOS with all upper-case letters instead of with the lower-case 's' at the end? Many people mistakenly spell it Logo's or a plural (LOGOs) but it's all one word, from the Greek word λόγος.

Rosie,

since no one else came back to you on this, I thought I try my old version of photoshop on this. Does this suit better?

Milford,

did you unzip both files from the zip into a folder (I used Downloads)? It seems the .exe file is trying to use the .dll file and can't (maybe you just ran them from inside Winzip?).

Mick!                           *smile*          You're a genius!                     That was exactly my problem.       Once I unzipped the .dll file everything worked perfectly!                Incredible!

                  I had put off doing this because I was a wee bit nervous about it all; however, as in so many other areas .....   I should have had Faith, eh?  *smile*

                                    Peace!

Edit:       BTW - Thanks also for the "cover"!                                *smile*

Brothers and Sisters!                     *smile*

               A public thank you to Richard Willson for his sharing!              This is an absolutely incredible aid to all of us; and I for one truly appreciate it!

                       His program went through all my resources and indexed them so beautifully in the categories mentioned in the various posts of this thread.  I am attaching a sample screenshot...           I own Portfolio with 9,095 resources; so one can see what a powerful program Richard has devised!            *smile*

                                I will be grateful for a long, long, long time for all the work that was done for me...       *smile*

Incredible!                      Yes!                        Incredible!                    *smile*

That looks great Milford! Would this process work for a Mac? I have the Index of Bible Studies, and it is absolutely great! But I haven't tried the process of running the program to narrow it down to only my resources because I assumed it would only work on a PC.

Peace, Liam!                  I truly am excited about what Richard has shared!     *smile*

               However, I personally wouldn't try it on the MAC until I heard from some of my compatriots that that was A-OK!                    My 2 cents worth, eh?!

Milford, Liam,

I'm not a Mac person, but I'd think the compiled version (.exe, .dll) requires Windows to work and I would not expect it to run on a Mac. 

But since Richard shared the source, which if I'm not mistaken is written in C#, (and the Mono middleware provides for a C# compiler), I think it could be possible to generate a Mac version - I have no idea if this is a simple compile-run or requires real effort. 

Thanks again Richard for sharing this!

Mick

Richard Wilson:

1. Download and unzip the MyIndex.zip file in any directory. It contains two files.

2. Run the Index Bible Studies.exe program.

Hi,

How can I use it with Mac

In theory, it would be possible to run the program with Mono on the Mac, it would not even be necessary to use the source code, just run the exe file. The problem however is another. The program uses the automation object that the Logos program exports, ie the Logos COM API. Maybe that does not mean anything, but it is something that exists only on Windows, so Logos can make the list of installed books available to other programs only in Windows. See http://community.logos.com/forums/p/33741/252614.aspx . So my program will not and can not work on the Mac, because Logos can not give the program the required information.

Peace, Richard!                     *smile*                                        I am absolutely overwhelmed!            *smile*

                    A whole new dimension of using Logos has opened for me!                       I actually have 1196 .docx pages in my index -- and it works so perfectly!               *smile*

                                         I sincerely hope others can find the "deep blessings" in your "sharing" that I have found!                Again, I must say, my gratitude to you is "unbounded"!

                  We are all "busy," however, I am hoping that you might find time to answer a few carefully-written questions as time rolls on, please!

Kindest personal greetings; and God Bless You and Your Loved Ones in 2014 and Forever!                  *smile*

I have created a new version of the Index of Bible Studies. This includes the Spurgeon, Piper and Keller sermon archives (thanks to Mark Barnes), as well as a number of other new books. So there are now over 30,000 Bible studies and sermons listed. These are Bible studies that would not usually turn up in your Passage Guide, because they are not of the Bible Commentary type.

If you want the want the whole list, download the Index Bible Studies.docx file. If instead you only want a list of the Bible Studies that are in the books that you personally own (and you have a Windows computer), download the MyIndex.zip, unzip the two files in some directory, and run the Index Bible Studies.exe program. After about a minute, a file called My Index Bible Studies.rtf will be created in your Documents directory. Open it in Word or a similar program, and save it as a DOCX file.

In both cases, you can then create a Personal Book in Logos using the DOCX file. Make sure you set the type as Bible Commentary (not just Commentary). Earlier on in this thread you will find an image you can use for the cover if you want to.

Hey Richard thanks for continually updating this! I'm currently in the process of adding your list to Bible notes so that I can access it from my iPad!

Mark Barnes made a sermon index and compilation of all of MacArthur's sermons; would be a worthy inclusion...

Are you talking about this thread? The problem is that the sermons are in a Personal Book, and every time a PB gets compiled by a different user it gets a different id from Logos. (At least, I presume that is the case.) So it is not possible to create a link from my file to a Personal Book that works on other computers than mine, so I can not include those MacArthur sermons in my index.

A year and a half after my first version of this file, I have now created an index of the Bible studies in all the books in my library. More than 1,000 pages, with almost 40,000 Bible studies and sermons listed. Originally, the idea was to include only those resources that do not appear in the Passage Guide. However, since then Logos has implemented the Sermons section of the Passage Guide, so many of the sermons listed in this file will also appear in the Passage Guide, and more will as Logos indexes more of the sermons in their resources. Despite this, I have left those sermons in this document. Maybe in a future version, I will add an option to the program that creates a personal index to exclude the sermons already in the Passage Guide.

If you want the want the whole list, download the Index Bible Studies.docx file. If instead you only want a list of the Bible Studies that are in the books that you personally own (and you have a Windows computer), download the MyIndex.zip file, unzip the two files in some directory, and run the Index Bible Studies.exe program. After about a minute, a file called My Index Bible Studies.rtf will be created in your Documents directory. Open it in Word or a similar program, and save it as a DOCX file.

Sorry Rosie... I had been away from the forums for quite a while and didn't see this till today. Looks like NB.Mick got the corrections made for you.  Big SmileYes
