I'm looking for a good strategy to track threads of themes through a book of the Bible. I'm working through Job and would love to organize the lists of verses that naturally group together (e.g. every time Job maintains his innocence, the passages that speak of the nature of God, etc.)--I've got about 8 lists I'm interested in keeping so far (I'm sure it'll grow as I keep going).

Now that we have notes that can attach to multiple locations, I was wondering what you thought the best strategy for keeping track of these lists would be. Would it be regular Passage List? Would it be the Notes? Is there another way that's even better?

My thought about the Passage Lists is that they would "clutter" My Documents with several more entries. I also think the idea of getting to visualize the themes with note icons is an interesting idea. Passage Lists seem nice for "working with" or "operating on". But I don't want to get into any particular system until I'm convinced it's the best way.

How would the clippings tool, with your added notes, figure into what you want to do?

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

I would consider labeling the references ... then searches will allow you some flexibility in grouping them.

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

Thank you Doc and MJ, especially for the expanded ideas. I'll test some methods today and see what might work best. At some point in the future I may come back and detail for anyone else that might be interested in doing something similar.
