The standard style guide of the Christian publishing industry, The Christian Writers Manual of Style, 4th Edition, compiled by veteran Zondervan editor Robert Hudson, contains clear guidance on style questions related to religious writing, including many topics not addressed in other references or online.
Nearly half of this fourth revision is made up of new material, including information about turning blogs into books, the effects of digital media on writing, "adverbial doubles," "vanishing accents," word-choice strategies, endorser guidelines, and much more. It also contains an all-new "Word List" which makes up more than a third of the book. The most needful information remainsentries on capitalization, abbreviation, citations, fictional dialogue, and morebut it has all been updated to keep pace with changes in English language usage. This fourth edition also corresponds with The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Edition (2010), though it isnt afraid to chart new territory where that reference is unhelpful on issues of religious writing.
