The Chicago Manual of Style or the Associated Press Stylebook are must-have resources for many writers and editors. But if you write or reference religious texts and/or subjects, Chicago and AP will only get you so far.
What’s the difference between “abiblical” and “unbiblical?”
Should “gospel” be capitalized?
What about “canon?”
And what does “Teavangelical” even mean?
The Christian Writer’s Manual of Style, now in its fourth revision, aims to answer all of these questions and more.
Author Robert Hudson is no stranger to religion publishing; he was the senior editor-at-large at Zondervan, an imprint of HarperCollins that publishes Bibles as well as religious fiction, for decades. Hudson is also the author of a number of books, most recently The Art of the Almost Said: A Christian Writer’s Guide to Writing Poetry.
The guide is compatible with the Chicago Manual of Style, “though it isn’t afraid to chart new territory where that reference is unhelpful on issues of religious writing,” its publisher promises.
