31 Days of Books for Writers: The Christian Writer’s Manual of Style

The Christian Writer’s Manual of Style edited by Robert Hudson is my second most used reference book. Since so many of my clients write for a Christian audience, I use it to make sure I help them follow the rules the big publishing houses are following.

One of the sections I use most often is “Capitalization of Common Religious Terms.” It helps me remember when we capitalize gospel and when we don’t (hint: we do when it’s “the Gospels” referring to the collective title of the four gospel accounts as a whole, but we don’t when it’s just “the gospel message” or even “the gospel of Matthew”). If you write for a primarily Christian audience, I recommend The Christian Writers’ Manual of Style. (affiliate link)
