Editing

In addition to my day job as a contributing editor, I occasionally take on freelance editing or proofreading projects in my spare time. The books that I normally edit are titles in Christian theology, church history, and biblical studies, although I have read widely and am always open to new subjects.

Qualifications

  • I have a degree in journalism from the University of Richmond.
  • I was a Dow Jones Newspaper Fund copy editing intern at the Los Angeles Times.
  • I have an MDiv from Regent College, with a Christianity and Culture concentration.
  • While at Regent, I edited the student newspaper, the Et Cetera.
  • I am comfortable editing books that use biblical Greek and Hebrew.
  • I am thoroughly familiar with the Chicago Manual of Style and the Society of Biblical Literature Style Guide.
  • Over the years, I have spent countless hours reading books in theology, church history, and biblical studies. I am familiar with the major players in all these disciplines, and I know when their names and the names of their works are misspelled. ūüôā
