  • I found this:
    Citing the Bible
    When citing the Bible it is important to include information about the version as there are many different interpretations.

    Full title of Bible, italicized, followed by a comma and a space
    Version or edition, followed by a period and a space
    Name of editor (first name last name) followed by a period and a space
    City of publication folowed by a coloon and a space
    Publisher followed by a comma and a space
    Date of publication followed by a period.
    The New Oxford Annotated Bible with the Apocrypha, rev. standard version.
    Herbert G. May, ed. New York: Oxford University Press, 1973.


    Sounds like a great paper. I don't know if it helps, but there has been a lot of studies about primates lying. Since they are the only other animal that purposly deceives. I think chimpanzees, monke

  • Is this the paper for your communications ethics class? I think this will make a wonderful paper! We've had to start reading a lot of Bible stories to our 3 yr. old (soon to be 4 yr. old). What's scary is that her lies are so convincing already! Will you post your paper as a journal when you finish? I'd love to read it!

  • First to answer my own question. There is a websites (Easybib) that will make the entire work cited page for you :) not sure how to reference them though.

    I will post it for you if you want, It is a speech and the topic is actually how telling kids there is a santa clause is a lie and at the same time parents are telling their kids not lie. Its a twist and the best papers are the ones where you have to think. I will post it when I am done.
