Less comprehensive in scope than dictionaries and encyclopedias, handbooks typically contain chapters on prominent themes in recent scholarship with invaluable bibliographies.
Handbooks typically include bibliographies at the end of each chapter. These updated lists of sources on specific research topics are invaluable at the beginning of the research process. The sample below shows the first two pages of a bibliography in a handbook chapter.
To cite an article such as this one, using SBL Style, obtain the page range of the chapter along with the author's name. The author's name typically appears after the bibliography at the end of the chapter. Less frequently, author's names are included at the beginning of the chapter.
Example bibliography entry:
Amaladoss, Michael. “Asian Theological Trends.” Pages 104–120 in The Oxford Handbook of Christianity in Asia. Edited by Felix Wilfred. New York: Oxford University Press, 2014.
