The rich variety of subjects treated by the Bible continues to be a source of amazement and of satisfaction to each generation as it is introduced to the Scriptures. Indeed, so rich is this subject matter that, simply to codify and index biblical material, a whole shelf of reference works has come into existence. Yet it comes as a surprise to realize that until now, no single reference work has been available to provide an authoritative guide to the richest of all biblical matter -- its timeless stories and the characters who illuminate them. The SUBJECT GUIDE TO BIBLE STORIES has been compiled to answer this very need. Here at last is a handy, ready-reference tool for everyone who would like to "put his finger on" a Bible story in order to illustrate EXACTLY a basic spiritual truth -- whether for the edification of others or for personal inspiration. Clergymen, Sunday school instructors, students, librarians, speakers and writers, and informed laymen -- all will find this book a marvel of convenience and clarity, and all will find that it can save hours of time that might otherwise be spent in research. Throughout this invaluable reference work, the stress is on biblical NARRATIVES.

Since 2001 William Germano’s Getting It Published has helped thousands of scholars develop a compelling book proposal, find the right academic publisher, evaluate a contract, handle the review process, and, finally, emerge as published authors. But a lot has changed in the past seven years. With the publishing world both more competitive and more confusing—especially given the increased availability of electronic resources—this second edition of Germano’s best-selling guide has arrived at just the right moment. As he writes in a new chapter, the “via electronica” now touches every aspect of writing and publishing. And although scholars now research, write, and gain tenure in a digital world, they must continue to ensure that their work meets the requirements of their institutions and the needs of their readers. Germano, a veteran editor with experience in both the university press and commercial worlds, knows this audience. This second edition will teach readers how to think about, describe, and pitch their manuscripts before they submit them. They’ll discover the finer points of publishing etiquette, including how to approach a busy editor and how to work with other publishing professionals on matters of design, marketing, and publicity. In a new afterword, they’ll also find helpful advice on what they can—and must—do to promote their work. A true insider’s guide to academic publishing, the second edition of Getting It Published will help authors understand what to expect from the publishing process, from manuscript to finished book and beyond.
