A Theologian on Writing

It’s no secret that theologians can be fairly bad, if not horrible writers. One of the exceptions to that rule is Tony Jones of “Theoblogy.” Jones lists his writing habits in a recent post. I think every writer can benefit by incorporating these basic rules of writing.

For a more thorough treatment of these practices, I recommend: On Writing Well by Zinsser and of course the Elements of Style: two must-reads for every writer. Check that. They are must not only be read but practiced.
