How can we improve the API?

More specific documentation on formatting calls

A list of the actual IDs for the Bible Editions, and specific guidance on how to format requests for passages, properly abbreviate bible versions, a list of the IDs used for the different bible editions, etc. would be a GREAT help. I appreciate the existing documentation, it gets you right through credentialing which I personally find to be the most difficult part of API calls (especially if you are not using cURL or related services), and it is good for certain "plug and play" uses. But I want to feed users specific verse selections, and the existing documentation is silent on how to "start from the end" as it were without first doing a request for bible editions, using code to handle edition selection, etc. etc. Right now I run these calls just as a developer tinkering around, record the resulting IDs, plug the numbers in, try and fail at getting the right abbreviation for bible books, so on and so forth, and build back into the code after a healthy amount of trial and error.
