If you want to be prepared for the unexpected while working on your Christian writing, then pick up this well-done reference book and keep it close at hand. It's true what they say about any type of printed work--the devil is in the details. This book provides you with the details for excellence.
Len and Carolyn Goss have spent years inside different publishing companies and write with authority about the details of publishing. Whether you are wondering how a book is produced or questioning some tricky spellings of words, this reference book is easy to use.
Recommended for every Christian writer and editor--whether you are working on your church newsletter or writing your next best-selling book or editing a regional church magazine. I believe the work in this book will stand the test of time--provided the public reads it and uses it.
Concise and thorough Mar 19, 2006
As a psych undergrad I was taught the APA style of writing and citation. Law school exposed me to the Harvard BlueBook, a high standard for formats and citations that only added to the nervousness of the school experience. Recently a Christian publisher accepted a manuscript I submitted. The publisher's criteria for submission stated that the manuscript must conform to Goss' style guide. Although Goss' guide is not as extensive as either the APA format or the Harvard BlueBook, I find it a very useful tool. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to submit articles or manuscripts to pulishers of Christian materials.

This little guide for Christian writers is quickly becoming my new best friend. Packed full of useful information, I keep it handy whenever I'm writing. As a quick resource for proper punctuation, it's the tops. And, what I find most beneficial is the section "Writing for Religious Publishers" -- great detailed information to help me succeed.
