We provide this list of Literature and Resources on the subject of the
head veiling to encourage believers to prayerfully and open-heartedly study this subject and meditate on God's Word. Although we have carefully reviewed and analyzed each of these resources, we feel that no one book or article, Scripture excluded, has the "complete truth." The Scriptures tell us, "Thy Word is Truth." (John 17:17) We pray that these resources will encourage and bless you. Not all of the viewpoints in the sources we list are necessarily our convictions or views.

Because of the large number of hyperlinks, we can't check them all regularly, and you may find some that no longer work.
