In A Guide for Writing about Theology and Religion, Mari Rapela Heidt coaches students on how to write a strong paper and on those things that one must be particularly mindful of when writing on religion: how to correctly cite texts from various religious traditions, including the Bible and the Qur’an; how to be inclusive in language; and how to properly refer to people and rituals. Additional chapters review the basics necessary for all good scholarly writing: how to cite sources and how to avoid common grammar, punctuation, and usage errors. The appendices provide additional helpful resources, including a useful paper-writing checklist for students. Particularly important tips and warnings are marked throughout the book with flag icons, making the guide a friendly, easy resource to consult again and again. Even the best students can improve upon their writing skills to become better thinkers and more effective communicators. A Guide for Writing about Theology and Religion gives them the means.
