"The SBL Handbook of Style is an astonishing book, a true 'one-stop' reference for authors preparing manuscripts in biblical studies and related fields. It covers an amazing range of topics, from what every literate scholar should know (but may not) to what only the most erudite expert in an obscure sub-field of the discipline would be likely to know. Do you need to know how to cite an Internet publication? Whose job it is to prepare the index and secure permissions? How properly to alphabetize Abraham ibn Ezra (and why)? What the abbreviation AAeg stands for? It's all here. Written in a clear and often witty style, this volume should substantially reduce the incidence of tears and tantrums that so often beset the process of manuscript preparation. Before long biblical scholars will wonder how we ever got along without this indispensable reference work. Every graduate program should make the SBL Handbook of Style a required text."
--Carol A. Newsom, Professor of Old Testament, Emory University " . . . A formidable tool for the twenty-first century that will-and must-be on the desk of every author and editor in the biblical fields, for it combines the most relevant material from the general style manuals with the essentials for publishing on biblical literature broadly conceived."
--Eldon J. Epp, Harkness Professor of Biblical Literature, Emeritus Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences, Emeritus Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio
