Publishers 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."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Just what I needed  Jan 3, 2007
This book addresses all the little questions a writer has in that moment of not being sure about grammar, sentence construction, but so much more. It could have been titled, "The Christian Writer's Second Best Friend". I keep it beside my computer next to my Dictionary and Thesaurus.
On the Desk of Every Christian Writer  Apr 30, 2004
If you're even reading this, you probably felt the need for a Christian style guide. If that describes you, save your time, ignore the rest of my review, and click the "Buy Now" button :)

But if you're still unconvinced...

This style manual covers every imaginable style-related issue, particularly for religious writing; basically just about style-related issue you'll encounter as a Christian writer, whether you're writing about Internet technology and how it relates to eschatology, or a critique of Islam from a Christian perspective.

And it doesn't just cover the religious issues; the standard style issues like punctuation, capitalization, acronyms, etc. are covered in good detail. It even has a section on British English.

This is probably the most current and exhaustive style manual for Christian writers around, and every serious Christian writer concerned about style and consistency should get one.

I seldom give 5 stars, but this one deserves it.

Required resource for Christian writers  Apr 13, 2004
"The Christian Writer's Manual of Style" provides the most exhaustive coverage of the special writing problems in the area of Christian publications that I have ever seen. This is easily the best book available on the subject of Christian writing style. Examples of the items covered here that are unlikely to be covered anywhere else include abbreviations for Bible books including apocryphal writings, the difference between sacred writings and the bible, should the use of the word "biblical" be capitalized or not, the difference between the Anglican Church and the Church of England, Bible permissions for quoting different versions and where to write for permissions, biblical and religious terms, clerical titles, forms of Christian books, Islamic terminology, Jewish terminology, and religious jargon.

In addition to this specialized information it also includes the stuff you would expect in any manual of style including commonly misspelled words, syntax rules, punctuation, proofreading, etc. Of course in any book of this depth some items are bound to become outdated quickly. For example, there are a couple of references to Word Publishing as a division of Thomas Nelson Publishing. Word Publishing no longer exists. Still this is the only outdated information I found in the entire book, which is pretty amazing. "The Christian Writer's Manual of Style" is a highly recommended read for anyone writing for the Christian market, and especially if you are writing non-fiction.
