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 / Catholic Translations," "BIBLES / Other English Translations," "BIBLES / Other Non-English Translations" or "BIBLES / Other Spanish 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."
