SIDELIGHTS: Kirk A. Bingaman told CA: "My motivation for writing has been doctoral research and subsequent research in the academic field of theological education. What has influenced my work has been the lived experience of my students. In other words, the writing process for me begins with the practicalities of the experiential realm and from there moves into the realm of theoretical and theological reflection. My book, Freud and Faith: Living in the Tension, was inspired, first and foremost, by the lively discussions within the context of the seminary classroom."

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
