How to Display Commentaries by Authors’ Denominational Bent

The recently released Logos 9 contains numerous new features, but none more practical than the redesigned Commentaries guide section. With this makeover, we can now display our commentaries in various ways, including the denominational bent of the author!

Give this a go:

  • Open the Passage Guide from the Guides menu

  • Type a passage like Colossians 3:16 in the reference box (A)
  • Press the Enter key to generate the report
  • Make sure the Commentaries guide section is expanded by clicking the title bar (B)
  • Notice the various ways we can now arrange the commentaries (C)
  • Click Denomination (D) to display the commentaries according to the denomination bent of the author (E)

Please keep a few things in mind:

  • This is a huge undertaking, so not all commentaries are currently “tagged.” Please be patient as the Logos team continues to label more and more resources.
  • Commentaries are being “tagged’ according to the denominational bent of the author of a volume, not an entire series.
  • This “tagging” is not an exact science, so please be gracious if you perhaps disagree with an assigned label.

Even though this is a work in progress, I really appreciate the effort the makers of our software are putting forth to make Logos as practical as possible. It’s very helpful to quickly view insights about a passage from a Baptist, Methodist, or Presbyterian perspective. Enjoy this new Logos 9 tweak!

    Thanks for letting us know this….over the years I have collected a few commentaries, and it’s a real mitzvah to have these more easily sorted. Maybe its a function of my ever-aging memory banks, but this is super, and will help to rank-order some of the study processes if there is shortness of time. Thanks for all you do for Faithlife and for our various ministries!
