Logos 4: Find Cross-References in a Book

Today’s post is from Morris Proctor, certified and authorized trainer for Logos Bible Software. Morris, who has trained thousands of Logos users at his two-day Camp Logos seminars, provides many training materials.

A fellow Logos user recently asked me how to find all the biblical cross-references to John in a specific resource. Here’s how I responded:

  • Open the resource you want to search, such as My Utmost for His Highest.
  • Click the Search icon.
  • Set the search type to Basic. (A)
  • Select the resource to be searched, such as Utmost, from the drop down list (B)
  • Type this search string in the box: <Bible ~ John>(C)
  • Press the Enter key to generate the search.

The ~ (tilde) is an intersection search operator, meaning that with it, Logos finds all cross references intersecting the book of John!

This search takes a few extra moments, but the results are worth the wait.
