I studied a bit a little while back in OT101 on some of the literary forms: linear, chiasm, parallel, acrostics, etc. And today I was reading about this again in "Jesus through Middle Eastern Eyes: Cultural Studies in the Gospels". I was wondering if anyone had created any visual filters that highlighted these structures throughout the Bible or if there are there any good resources that do this thoroughly?

As an aside I'd also like to reiterate a suggestion I made a while back that Faithlife should create a Market for Logos document types & PBs. This would give incentive for people to create more documents as well as encouraging authors to be more responsible for the content they create (as implied in the sale). Faithlife could get a percentage of sales as well as producing their own documents.

It is not a Visual Filter, but David Dorsey's https://www.logos.com/product/39605/the-literary-structure-of-the-old-testament-a-commentary-on-genesis-malachi has dozens of examples of chiasm from most books of the OT.

Thanks, David. I've put that in my shopping cart to pick up as soon as I replenish some of the cash I've been bleeding out the last couple months. Looks like a great book. lots of good reviews. Looking forward to picking it up. Thanks.
