I notice that when I do a search on a biblical person or topic, I never get a reference to either the Lexham bible dictionary, or more importantly for me, the New Interpreter's Bible Dictionary.

For instance, if I search for "Boaz" the person, I get hits in all sorts of my dictionaries. But not Lexham or NIBD. When I open them directly and search, I find material inside them.

Is there something I'm missing, or is this an error in the datasets? I've tried reindexing my whole library, but it hasn't made a difference.

Given the higher quality of the information in the NIBD or the Lexham dictionary, this is a pretty big issue for the way I want to use the tools.

Not all dictionaries have been tagged with the necessary tags. Logos is working through the materials doing the tagging but it comes slowly. If I remember correctly, the last time I know they were working on the Anchor Bible Dictionary.

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

Logos & their sheeps claimed their tagging is their best feature, but i say logos' tagging feature is very lukewarm. The Jewish Encyclopedia is also not properly tagged, disappointing. When they charge higher i expect better quality.
