How to search for biblical materials

The most effective way to search CATALYST for books about the bible is to do a Subject search using the Advanced Search feature (see box to the right).  Use the first drop down (Any field) and select Subject.  In the Contains field, type in a biblical subject using the formats shown below:

Bible Genesis
Bible Matthew

If the biblical book you are searching for includes a number, use the following format:

Bible Thessalonians, 1st
Bible Thessalonians, 2nd

If you decide to do a Basic search (by typing into the search box provided) instead of an Advanced Search, simply use the filters that appear to the left of your search results to focus in on what you need.
