Bible books -- MC guidelines

I. Database

1.  Author:  Bible version, spelled outBR
 World English BibleBR
2.  Name/number of book:  Bible ([version abbreviation]) ##: [name of book]BR
 Bible (WEB) 01: GenesisBR
 Bible (ASV) NT 01: MatthewBR
 Bible (KJV) Apocrypha/Deuterocanon: Prayer of Manasseh

Including the version abbreviation ensures that you'll be able to find the project you're working on in the big database table. For example, if there are two Genesis projects from different Bible versions, they wouldn't automatically get a Genesis-1 or Genesis-Version 2 designation because they have different authors, so you wouldn't be able to tell them apart in the database table without the version acronym. For the Apocrypha, or Deuterocanonical books, the term used (Apocrypha vs Deuterocanon) varies with Bible version and religious tradition. Include both terms so the book will turn up on a search either way.

Numbering: The numbers ensure that the books sort properly. See below for a list of Bible books. Begin numbering over again with 01 for the New Testament and include the acronym "NT" in the title. The books of the Apocrypha/Deuterocanon can be ordered in different ways, so leave the numbers off those and let them sort alphabetically. Exception: if your project uses a translation that groups the Deuterocanon in with the Old Testament (i.e. Orthodox, Catholic), go ahead and number the book so it'll sort with the other Old Testament books (but also include "Deuterocanon" in the title so listeners searching for that can find it).

II. Validator

1.  Author:  Bible version, spelled out
 World English Bible
2.  Title:  Name of book (optional: version acronym in parentheses)
 Genesis or Genesis (WEB)
3.  Author URL:  leave blank or link to Wikipedia entry for Bible version
4.  Other URL:  This is the place to include a link to any other author that seems relevant, especially for the          gospels and epistles (i.e. Matthew for Gospel of Matthew, Paul for Romans, etc.).
