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.

Abraham Kuyper’s Theology of Everyday Life

Even if you’re unfamiliar with the works of Abraham Kuyper, you might recognize his most famous quote: “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry: ‘Mine!’”

The modern church still struggles to navigate this tension between the spiritual life and the secular world. That’s why, despite being a century old, Kuyper’s theology of everyday life is still relevant today.

Suddenly, we feel as if we’re with Jesus as he preached his Sermon on the Mount. We’re there at the foot of the cross.

We step inside that tomb, only to discover that it’s empty.

Was the Story of Moses Based on an Ancient Legend?

In modern stories people destined for greatness rarely start off privileged. They are dropped off at the doorstep of an orphanage or abandoned in the rain. This literary motif goes back to ancient stories, where writers use the abandoned child theme to identify a character that rises from obscurity to privileged hero status. It’s a motif found in the biblical account of Moses’ birth. But is that really the whole story?

Wayne Grudem on Seeing the NT As a First-Century Reader

God’s Word is eternal, but between us and its earliest readers lies a chasm of time, culture, and language. Before we can apply Scripture to twenty-first-century life, we must first understand the world in which it was written.

Ask celebrated theologian Wayne Grudem, and he’ll tell you one of the best resources for glimpsing that world is a little-known work written nearly 100 years ago.

7 Reasons to Add Church Media to Your Easter Service

easter-mediaNot all pastors like using church media. That’s okay. Even the designers who make church media are sensitive about when and where to use it.
