It would be nice to have a way to access the Library for commentaries on a particular book.  So somehow one enters the name of a book, like "Ruth," and then a list of all one's commentaries appears with an abbreviation of the set (if a set) and the author.  So you enter Ruth and the result has items in a list like

PBC Einzelgeboten, J. G. for a commentary in the Perfect Bible Commentary set, author of Ruth = Herr Einzelgeboten, 

etc.

Good idea! This would also save a little bit of time when setting up and then saving new workspaces for individual books of the Bible.

Just remembered to note--you can already select what is essentially a search field in the library pane and search by "Author," which is helpful--it actually works (I think? or seems to?) for finding authors included in multi-volume, single-module works. (also noted here in more detail on forums) So maybe adding a "Biblical Book" search field could be a way to accommodate the request?
