I have recently taken over a small church library. How do I find the precise DDS number to go with a book? Many books are personal books, donated. Hence, no number.

There is a Dewey publication that is designed to help in the situation you describe. 200 Religion is a convenient source of detailed classification numbers for religion. It includes the following information from DDC 22: Schedule for 200 Religion Manual notes that discuss the numbers in 200 Religion Extended index to religious aspects of topics and two appendixes Optimal Arrangement for Books of Tanakh 170 Ethics.
