I printed this out yesterday to have a look at it, after I was forward the link to it the other day. Looks really helpful, and a good resource for something like the General Education course “Bible and Popular Culture” (old blurb about it here) that I’m teaching next year.
The Bible Style Guide is a reference text designed specifically for those working within the media industry. It provides a crash course in the Bible for busy journalists, broadcasters and bloggers.
I’ll add it to other resources I used to introduce students to basic biblical studies such as:
- “Be an Expert in 137 Minutes in Interpreting the Bible” (Richard Briggs) (Now available as “Light to Live by: How to Interpret the Bible” (Richard Briggs), I think)
- “Pocket Dictionary of Theological Terms” (Stanley J. Grenz, David Guretzki, Cherith Fee Nordling)
- “Pocket Dictionary of Biblical Studies” (Arthur G. Patzia, Anthony J. Petrotta, Stanley J. Grenz)
- Spirituality of Jesus (Jon Horne)
