BOS Books Codes

The books codes used for the Bible Organisational System (BOS) consist of three alphanumeric characters that are used internally in the BOS and in filenames to indicate the contents of the book/file. The codes (often represented in the BOS software by the symbol BBB) consist of three uppercase letters (A-Z) and digits (1-4), but always starting with a letter.

The following are the v0.73 books codes:
