Reference Lists

Although it is not a conventional approach, the author presents three reference lists. The first list contains three basic references most connected to the central theme of this work. They are identified by [KJV], [Origin] and [Hux].

The second list reveals the texts that have most contributed to the author's thought (mostly positively but occasionally negatively). They are indicated by [Beak], [BSW], [G&BB], and [Omphalos]. They are cited throughout the book.

The third list is broken down by chapters and contain specific references. These are indicated within the chapters as bold, bracketed numbers, e. g. [1].
