Dates for New Testament Books

I was compiling a list of sources for dates New Testament books were written and found this site. It met my purpose and links to the site are allowed. So I stopped my list and offer this one. I would suggest reading the footnote for James. The arthurs took off 19 very high estimates for the date for James and resulted in a “modified” date with James being the first book written.
