There are a number of different technical frameworks that work for different purposes. You should give some more details of the context in which you are working. – Neil Strickland May 9 '12 at 21:30
There's a decent explanation in Waterhouse's Abelian varieties over finite fields. – René May 9 '12 at 21:33
The usual place is Katz which is still very readable. – sdf Jul 14 at 13:07

Look at the list of references in the following syllabus (Eva Viehmann's seminar on p-divisible groups).
