The following are a number of books that I find interesting, useful, or important. That means my goal isn’t to be exhaustive, but to provide resources with which I have had personal experience. Though I basically follow Chicago author-date style, I freely change the way I cite the sources to make them readable and easy to find if they are in a series (such as Lightfoot’s Apostolic Fathers).
Over time I will add more resources and categories. If you have any suggestions in these or related categories, feel free to contact me.
