Bible "Style Guide"
Huge thanks to Stephen
for the tip off (via email) to this brilliant resource:The Bible Style Guide
may be "a reference text designed specifically for those working within the media industry." But the "crash course in the Bible" it offers is good for far more than just "busy journalists, broadcasters and bloggers." It combines a very brief, down to earth, and wise glossary of key terms that people use when talking about the Bible. With a crash course in the nature of biblical literature, translation and the Bible in today's world. There is probably no one who can not learn something from this free 70+ page book!
Students, do you:
Just get The Bible Style Guide
- think Ebionite is a sort of ancient plastic?
- a Codex is used to decode secret messages?
- that a canon goes "bang"?
and look it up! The answers are neat, quick and sensible.
Kids, do you think the Bible is old fashioned but confused because you were brought up to think it a Holy Book? Just get The Bible Style Guide and browse through it like a magazine.
Mature Christians (that's code for "not longer young" and somewhat stuck in a rut) just get the (totally free) Bible Style Guide
and discover something new and inspiring - before breakfast.
Teachers, fed up with people who do your Intro class yet still think the Catholic Epistles were written by Pope Benedict? Point all your classes to The Bible Style Guide and then warn them you'll get tough on people who have not at least mastered its under 80 pages!
Quite seriously this is the most compact, useful and easy to use Bible Handbook I have ever seen...
