Specific Versions of Religious Texts:
Since books and numbering are not identical in different versions [of religious texts], it's important to state which version is being cited. For a general reader, the version should be spelled out, at least the first time it's cited. Otherwise, abbreviations cab be used (Ex: New King James vs. NKJV).
