How to Save Custom Concordance Reports, and Save Time!


One of my favorite Logos 7 features is the Concordance which allows us to conduct a word count, develop a lemma list, and much more. As I’m sure you’ve discovered, a few minutes are necessary the first time we create a Concordance report for an interlinear Bible. And since only a select number of resources are saved in the tool’s history, we may have to spend another few minutes building the report for the same resource in the future.

With the recent release of Logos 7.10, however, that scenario disappeared. We can now save Concordance resources in the panel’s history!

Why Logos’ Typography Matters

I once gave a presentation at my church on “Why Bible Typography Matters.” It was announced a month or so in advance, and people started making comments to me about it. Someone said, “You’re going to talk about Bible typology—like how Joseph prefigures Christ? I love that!” Someone else said, “How can you talk for a whole hour about Bible topography? What is there to say about levels of elevation in Bible lands?”

I tried to explain that typography is the art and science of arranging text on a printed page. This did not persuade anyone I was aware of to get excited, but they all dutifully showed up anyway.

They ended up paying great attention, and they asked truly great questions at the end. The sound guy later told me, “When I saw your topic I expected to be bored out of my mind, but I was actually on the edge of my seat!”
