How to Search for Journal Articles by a Specific Author

A fellow Logos user recently emailed me an excellent question:

As I was reading a chapter in Walter Kaiser’s Classical Evangelical Essays in Old Testament Interpretation, one of the author’s (William Henry Green) made the comment that his essay was a further development on an earlier essay.  If someone has a number of the theological journal collections in their library, how does that person search the journal collections for other articles written by an author or articles written on the same topic?

The answer lies in a feature called Field Searching. The steps below show how to search for journal articles by the same author.

The Filología Neotestamentaria Journal Collection

Recently, I wrote about the importance of having access to theological journals in your Logos library. The Filología Neotestamentaria (31 vols.) is a terrific example. Published by the Department of Greek Science Antiquity and the Middle Ages at the University of Cordoba, this is one of the most important journals in print on the New Testament. Now, Logos is making it available for your personal library.

Filología Neotestamentaria is a journal specializing in Hellenistic Greek, the language of the New Testament and Septuagint. Each article concentrates on a Greek-related topic, such as textual criticism, semantics, grammar, lexicography, rhetorical criticism, and semiotics. Filología Neotestamentaria is a must for any serious student of Hellenistic Greek; and when you look at some of the gems it contains, it’s not difficult to see why:

  • “Some Dissenting Notes on R. Stein’s The Synoptic Problem and Markan ‘Errors’,” by David Alan Black
  • “Vague Verbs, Periphrastics, and Matthew 16:19,” by Stanley E. Porter
  • “The Pauline Love Command: Structure, Style, and Ethics in Romans 12:9–21,” by David Alan Black
  • “Studying Ancient Languages from a Modern Linguistic Perspective: Essential Terms and Terminology,” by Stanley E. Porter
  • “How Do Words Mean—If They Do?,” by Johannes P. Louw
  • “The Use of the Definitive Article before Names of People in the Greek Text of Acts with Particular Reference to Codex Bezae,” by Jenny Heimerdinger and Stephen Levinsohn
  • “Literary Artistry in the Epistle to the Hebrews,” by David Alan Black

Now is the time to jump on board and pre-order the Filología Neotestamentaria collection. At the pre-pub price of $99.95, this is a steal—considering that the price for just two volumes is over $100!

A Case for Theological Journals

If you have spent any amount of time doing serious Bible study or research you have inevitably run into references to articles contained in theological journals. These journals are on the cutting edge of biblical scholarship, containing fresh research, insight into key theological topics, and exegesis of the Biblical text.

But too often when you want to take your studies further, you find that these journals are housed in some far-off Bible college or university. And if you wanted to order a subscription to a specific journal you’ll soon find that you may have to put off eating for a month–some of these journals can cost well over a hundred dollars for just four issues! But do not despair! With the Theological Journal Library, vol. 14 now on Pre-Pub, Logos has brought those distant libraries filled with theological journals right into the comfort of your own home.

The Need for Theological Journals

Where a Bible commentary may take up to 10 years or more to be published, journal articles tend to be published more quickly. Also, with commentaries there is often a set page limit that constrains the author to stick to the big picture while theological journals step in and go deeper into textual issues.

This freedom keeps theological journals on the cutting edge of scholarship. Often this scholarship is more specialized, focusing on issues of grammar, cultural background, or theology of a particular passage or passages of Scripture. Having access to theological journals in your Logos library is like bringing a research library into your personal place of study and allowing you to study the Bible in a more enriching manner.

Theological Journals in Logos 4

If you are a Logos user, then you know how incredible it is to have a software program that searches your entire library in a matter of seconds. In the same way you search the Bible for a particular word, phrase, or verse, you can also just as quickly search through your theological journals for any reference or verse. And when you click on a Scripture reference in your journal, Logos quickly navigates to that Bible verse. This speeds up your study and gives you more time to research—and who doesn’t want that?

Considering the amount of scholarship contained in theological journals and the speed and power of Logos 4, Theological Journal Library, vol. 14 is an invaluable addition to your library. And with the incredible Pre-Pub price of $49.95, now is the time to add it to your library and take your Bible study to an even deeper level.  And while you’re at it, check out some of these other journals that Logos has to offer!

Library Journal Gives Bible Study Magazine Good Marks

Bible Study Magazine is a serious, clearly written popular magazine . . . . Highly recommended for religious studies collections in academic and public libraries.
