The literature on the Bishop's Opening is quite extensive and there are a number of good articles on the web that offer analysis.

Tim Harding has published a number of articles on the Bishop's Opening (including online articles as The Kibitzer) and he may be responsible in some ways for its revival. Gary Lane's book, Winning with the Bishop's Opening, remains one of the most complete recent considerations of the opening, with excellent coverage of the more positional 3.d3 lines that are not covered here.
