This is a short list of the books and articles I consulted in the writing of Junia: The Forgotten Apostle. Note that some of these citations argue that Junia was not a woman and/or that she was not an apostle. I include all sides of the debate over the last few decades; however, at this point scholarly consensus has reached the conclusion that she was indeed a woman and an apostle.
