- Headcoverings. A number of good articles collected by Philip Smith of Anchorage, Alaska. See especially the essay Women’s Head Coverings and The Glory of God by Dr Peter H.L. Wee (Plymouth Brethren).
- Bobbed Hair. By John R. Rice. Asserts that long hair is the only covering intended in 1 Cor. 11, but, unlike most preachers who make this argument only as a way of dismissing the passage, Rice actually insists upon the long hair.

Natural common sense and the collective experience of womankind confirms the teaching of Scripture.
