The Transformative Word Series

Some of the books in this series are listed in the library as Bible Commentaries and others as monographs. Would this not effect the search functionality if we were to search only commentaries and how these books are used when prioritized?

None of these are really commentaries. They are described as "thematic studies" that are "designed to pair with your favorite commentary."

They should be of type "Bible Study".

Whatever they are, I would prefer that they all be the same for cataloguing reasons. Maybe I am a little bit "CDO" ( That is OCD with the letters arranged alphabetically Big Smile).

IIRC thematic studies fall under Study Guide rather than Bible Study although there has been a strong suggestion that Kyle reconsider the distinctions for this. Series often do not all fall into the same type so I suspect that is not a major element in the classifying process. In another case, Kyle agreed that a group of resources belonged under Bible Study rather than Bible Commentary but indicated that he was loath to move something out of a Passage Guide section.  All of which is intended to wish you good luck on your desired change. ...
