BISAC Subject Headings List, Bibles

Note: If you need to download and incorporate this list into your databases and systems, you need to purchase an  End Users' License Agreement.

If you need more information on how to select a BISAC code go to our website, we have a page that walks you through the process. If you can't find the code you're looking for please go back and review other Major Subjects to find an alternate code or use our Suggestion Form to suggest revisions to the next version of the list.

Step 2: Determine the specific term which describes your book. An asterisk (*) denotes a heading that is new for the 2018 Edition.

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 English Translations" or "BIBLES / Other Non-English 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".
