Dictionary of Christian Biography
The scope of this Dictionary extends beyond 'professional' Christians such as churchmen, saints, theologians and mystics: in 6,500 or so brief biographies it covers many hundreds of people from diverse walks of life, selected because their commitment to Christianity played an important part in their public lives. Here are profiles of economists, artists, archaeologists and journalists alongside the major, and many minor, figures of Christian history. The Dictionary covers the period from the end of the New Testament era to the 20th century.
The Christian Writer's Manual of Style

This comprehensive, easy-to-use manual provides clear answers to such questions, including Biblical citation, capitalization, abbreviation and dialogue. Fully updated to keep pace with changes in English usage, it includes an all-new word list and advice on turning blogs into books.
Summon's Miscellany of Saints and Sinners
'The purpose of this book', writes Summon, 'is to inspire and entertain readers by detailing the fascinating lives of saints and the appalling activities of notable sinners'. The Miscellany brings together not only facts, figures, curiosities and legends about individual heroes and villains, but also information about symbols, relics and holy places, saints' days, the world's worst dictators and Bond villains.
