Best Practices for Editing Christian and Faith-Based Books - podcast

Christian author and editor Bart Tesoriero offers three editing best practice tips for Christian and faith-based writing. First, when quoting scripture it's important to understand which version is being used, as this can impact how it's treated and cited. Second, be consistent with your treatment of pronouns. This may be dictated by the specific denomination associated with the work. Third, when citing a book of the Bible do not italicize the copy. Tesoriero also points out that extra approval steps in the editing process may be necessary, such as an imprimatur, which is an official authorization from the Roman Catholic Church to publish a book.
