How to Search

Scope:
Home: Top-level HCC pages, green button essays, theology pages. Indexes: Top pages of magazine, electronic publications. Messages: HCC Cork Board messages. All: Search every HCC page except messages (very slow). To search on-line publications, use the search feature on that publication's top page. There is also a search feature on The Eller Collection.
String:
Search for exact text, including spaces (e.g., Entering Jn. 3:16 will locate only references to John 3:16, not John 3:3 or 2 Thess. 3:16. Entering Jn. 3 locates any reference in John 3. Do not use quotes unless you want them in the search).
AND:
Text is parsed on spaces. Only documents containing all the entered words are found (e.g., Entering Karl Barth will locate all documents with both Karl and Barth appearing at least once somewhere in the document. But a document containing Barth but not having Karl will not be located.
OR:
Use this for the broadest possible searches. Text is parsed on spaces. All documents with any of the specified words are found. Enter Mt. Mk. Lk. to locate any documents making reference to any of the synoptic gospels.
