How to sort a commentary series?

In some cases there is a number in the book title (like in WBC), but most of the commentary series do not have such a number. Sorting by the name helps find books but does not reveal missing books easily.

Is there any way to sort for example BHHB according to the same book order as in the English Bibles?

No. Not without renaming them.

Renaming them using a numbering system or the name of the book is a great option it that is important. I've done that with many resources.

I have no idea what BHHB stands for, but I tag all my commentaries with the same number that FL uses in Logos, so e.g. #01 - Genesis, #39 - Malachi, #61 - Matthew - this allows for sorting in nearly proper order (I was raised on the Luther bible thus the last books of the NT are always sorted a bit off - you may know that feeling) and also spotting missing books.

EDIT: see how NAC looks, missing #70 Ephesians

Ok, thanks to all!

It means what I was afraid of - that I have to do manual work for it.

Logos helps you a bit in selecting commentaries with the Factbook/Bible facet (which of course is incomplete, it must be at least regarding edition:eBook and PBB commentaries), for some reason we can't sort the library according to those facets - and the facets are not sorted by canonical order, either.

I had the same response as I don't know what that means either. Can you enlighten us Veli?

I now googled BHHB bible commentary and it's "Baylor Handbook on the Hebrew Bible", which often are titled XXXX - A Handbook on the Hebrew text

BHHB stands for Baylor Handbook of the Hebrew Bible

Some of them are here:

In the library the tag BHHB exists, but not in the Logos.com book list.
