When citing an individual section of larger work such as a volume of essays or a reference work, cite the container in which the item is in AFTER the author and title of the individual section.
Sometimes you may use only a single chapter or essay from a larger book by a single-author. In those instances, cite the specific chapter used rather than the entire book as demonstrated below.
WC: Cone, Steven. "The Image of God." Theology from the Great Tradition, Bloomsbury T & T Clark, 2018, pp. 263-274.
