I think I've reported this before a while ago, but can't find it, and it's still a problem.

If you click on the link that is the publisher name in a product description page (e.g., click "Lexington Books" on this page https://ebooks.faithlife.com/product/178231/the-legacy-of-the-barmen-declaration-politics-and-the-kingdom, or click "Lion Books" on this one https://ebooks.faithlife.com/product/128918/the-book-of-books), it does a search for the words in the publisher name "OR"ed together, rather than filtering by that publisher.

This is useless. The top results often aren't even by that publisher.

I have spot checked a bit on logos.com and it doesn't seem to happen there. I seem to recall that this is caused by problems with each product description page being set up wrong rather than a general site-wide issue that can be fixed all at once. I tested a bunch of books on ebooks.faithlife.com and they all had the problem, but I'd hate to have to list them all for you. It seems like a systemic problem, and I think someone ought to do some QA on the site and find and flush out as many of these as possible.
