There are two styles of Chicago/Turabian (also called Society for Biblical Literature or SBL) formatting. For Biblical Studies cources Liberty prefers the Notes/Bibliography style, which has you place a footnote at the bottom of each page where a resource is quoted or paraphrased (NOT end-notes), and then have an alphabetically organized bibliography at the end of your paper.  The Notes/Bibliography style is found in chapters 16 and 17 of the Turabian Manual, and is also called Chicago/Turabian: Humanities style by some databases (such as Ebsco) that provide suggested citations.  Whenever you use suggested citations from a database, be sure to check that they are properly capitalized, italicized, Times New Roman 12 point (NOT Arial), etc.

The other Chicago/Turabian Author/Date style is much more like APA formatting and looks like this (Smith 1980, 34).  Do not use this style for Liberty papers in this class.  Examples for this style are found in chapters 18 and 19 of the Turabian Manual.  This style uses parenthetical "in-text" citations style and has a reference list at the end of the paper.

Kate L. Turabian’s Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations presents the Chicago Manual of Style
