Style Request: Society of Biblical Literature (Author-Date Format)

I am very happy to see SBL's style (full note with bibliography) available in Zotero's additional styles! Could anyone make use of SBL's Author-Date format being included as well? This post, at least, is a request to include this one, too.

The style is basically the same in principle as the SBL full note style, but obviously it is with author-date. This will affect the in-text/footnote/endnote citation. But it will also affect the bibliography as well.

Unfortunately, I am unable to supply a link to the SBL Handbook of Style (1999) in making this post.
  • Please read this.
  • It would be really helpful to get an author-date version of SBL format sorted. The in text citations are similar to Chicago author-date, and the works cited section is similar to SBL. A friend put together a (quite imperfect) version that could be a helpful template for building the proper style, which I can send in a personal message if it would be helpful.

    I'll try to provide the missing information. The exact style guide is not freely available online, I have a PDF of the relevant section which I could email in a personal message if needed. Here are some links that have helpful explanations of the style:
