BIBLES

Use subjects in this section only for those collections of sacred writings of Christianity that comprise the Old Testament and/or the New Testament.  For works about specific aspects of the Bible, use subjects beginning with "RELIGION / Biblical Biography", "RELIGION / Biblical Commentary", "RELIGION / Biblical Criticism & Interpretation", "RELIGION / Biblical Meditations", "RELIGION / Biblical Reference", or "RELIGION / Biblical Studies".

For Bibles that include a number of translations, use subjects beginning with "BIBLES / Multiple Translations".  If the Bible translation needed is not specifically included by name, use subjects beginning with "BIBLES / Other Translations".  If the Bible translation is unknown, use "BIBLES / General".

Juvenile Bibles should be assigned subjects within the BIBLES section of the appropriate translation followed by the subsubheading "Children" or "Youth & Teen".  Individual stories from the Bible geared toward juveniles should be assigned a subject beginning with "JUVENILE NONFICTION / Religion / Bible Stories".
