Product Description

Focusing on the unique demands of religious publications, The Christian Writer's Manual of Style is the most detailed and comprehensive guide of its kind. This second edition has been thoroughly revised, updated, and expanded to include more than twice the information of the original. It includes points of grammar, punctuation, usage, book production and design, and written style that are often overlooked in other manuals. It also includes hard-to-come-by information, such as an author's guide for obtaining permissions, guidelines for using American, British, and mid-Atlantic styles, discussions of Internet and computer-related language styles and much more.

Publisher's Description

An essential tool for writers, editors, proofreaders, designers, copywriters, production managers, and marketers too. The Christian Writer’s Manual of Style is an essential tool not only for writers of religious materials, but for their editors, proofreaders, designers, copywriters, production managers, and even marketers. Rather than simply repeating style information commonly available in standard references, this newly updated and expanded edition includes points of grammar, punctuation, usage, book production and design, and written style that are often overlooked in other manuals. It focuses on information relating to the unique needs and demands of religious publications, such as discussions on how to correctly quote the Bible, how to capitalize and use common religious terms, and how to abbreviate the books of the Bible and other religious words. Also included are rarely found items such as: • an author’s guide to obtaining permissions • guidelines for using American, British, and Mid-Atlantic styles • discussions of inclusive language, profanity, and ethnic sensitivities • discussions of Internet and computer-related language style • a list of problem words • style issues regarding words from major world religions • a discussion of handling brand names in text • a list of common interjections • issues of type design, paper, copy-fit This edition has been completely updated since the 1988 edition and contains more than twice as much information as the previous edition. This is the most detailed and comprehensive guide of its kind.

    This review was written for The Christian Writer's Manual of Style.
    I flipped through the book the day I received it and was immediately surprised to learn about writing elements I needed to know. I intend to read The Christian Writer's Manual of Style from cover to cover so that I will know where to find details that make my writing more professional.

    This review was written for The Christian Writer's Manual of Style.
    This book is all about the fine points, including common perceptions of readers, and it's arranged alphabetically. So far, it seems comprehensive.
